Workflow of a fiber-reinforced composite fixed dental prosthesis by using a 4-piece additive manufactured silicone index: A dental technique Academic Article uri icon

abstract

  • A digital workflow for fabricating a fiber-reinforced composite prosthesis is described. A facial scanner and an intraoral scanner were used to gather records, and dental and open-source software programs were used to elaborate a diagnostic waxing and design a 4-piece additively manufactured clear silicone index. Advantages of the index design included precise translation of the diagnostic waxing, optimal composite resin stratification, and minimal clinical time.
