Abstract

For about 30 years, laser technology in all its different forms has been indispensable in the daily laboratory routine of dental technology. In the digital workflow, however, lasers are increasing rapidly. 3D printers are becoming increasingly important just like laser technology too. Resins can be processed easily and inexpensively with simple printers. Metals can already be laser-sintered in acceptable quality. The latest innovations even make it possible to print final sintered ZrO2 crowns.
