136: The Don of Liquid Ceramic: Don Cornell with Jensen Dental
It's amazing how far zirconia has come in our industry. There are monolithic crown that have such good translucency that they rival lithium disilicate. But so many labs still layer them to get the desired results. Enter MIYO. the liquid ceramic that is taking the lab industry by storm (a name of one of their translucent colors). Don Cornell saw a need to improve the monolithic zirconia crown. To make it better. To make it look more like a natural tooth. With the resources of Jensen Dental (already an expert in Zirconia and ceramics), Don was able to create a layering ceramic that gives the qualities of a natural tooth with less sacrifice of the crown material. Don talks about his early days, teaming up with Jensen, and how he and his team created MIYO.
