Dental Workflow

Post processing

After the removal of the building platform the part is inserted into the pre-heated oven and the annealing process starts. Subsequently, the component is sandblasted to refine the surface followed by the removal of all support structures. The polishing of the dental bridge is the final stage of the post-processing.
