This the the First Worldwide collaboration between 3i/Biomet Encode Abutment system and 3M LAVA COS Digital Impression scanner to produce and all ceramic zirconium abutment and e.max, the latest in a long line of durable and esthetic all ceramic products from IvoclarVivadent. The LAVA COS scanner now allows us to take digital impressions without messy impression materials. The ENCODE abutment is scanned in the mouth, and the digital file is sent to fabricate a digital model which is then sent to 3i to design and mill a zirconium abutment. This is then sent to the laboratory to fabricate an e.max crown that fits the digital model. This is returned to the dentist and seated in the patients mouth, restoring the function and esthetics after the tooth was extracted. The final results are outstanding, with less involved procedures and greater comfort to the patient.
