Primero Lab System

Cyrtina Academy

On October 12th 2007 Cyrtina Academy was opened by the director of the Dutch Healthtec Academy, the school for dental technicians in the Netherlands. Courses in CAD/CAM lead to a “Dentician Certificate“. The two courses at the moment are Primero Lab System Workshop and Finishing Primero Restoration

Several workshops on Finishing Primero Restorations were given. The focus in these workshops is on the use of the Primero Artist Set and the Primero Stain Set set for the final individualization of Primero restorations if this is required.

Cyrtina Academy offers courses the following courses:

1. Primero Lab System Workshop

2. Finishing Primero Restorations

Primero Lab System Workshop

To implement with Primero veneering, Cyrtin Academy developed a course for laboratories, to get more familiar with the histo-anatomic design of Primero restorations and an introduction into the use of Primero specific Sum3D millbox software for the calculation of milling paths.

Materials and method:

Primero procedures will be covered in detail. The particular material properties, as far as they effect their behavior during processing.C


Finishing Primero Restorations
