Description: Before the construction of a dental prosthesis (in this case a crown for a damaged tooth) can begin, a model is made from an artificial stone using an impression of the mouth taken in silicone. This video shows the process of cutting the model into pieces to allow for easy access to important areas. The section of the model where the prosthesis will be made is further prepared with a hardening solution, and a paint-on spacing lacquer.
