Tay Harvey joins us again to talk about the exciting times ahead, now that PEKKTON can NOW be used as a long term definitive material.  Coming ashore 3 years ago, labs have been waiting anxiously to stop "winking" when delivering full arch restorations without zirconia and calling it "long term provisionals".  We can call them what they are: final prosthetics.

Come to Chicago, February 22 and learn ALL about this material.
