LECTURE ABSTRACT

Digital Biomimetics: “Nature Copy / Nature Paste”

The recreation of the anatomical tooth form together with its optical features has been considered an arduous, challenging and elusive task. With the constant evolution of clinical and laboratorial software and hardware, the digital workflow took control of a series of tasks and procedures that were once artistically handmade by highly skilled artisans.
