Abstract

The dental clinic (22) is typically linked to one or more dental labs (26), and possibly also to a dental service center (23) via a communication means or network such as for example the Internet or other suitable communications medium such as an intranet, local access network, public switched telephone network, cable network, satellite communication system, and the like, indicated by the cloud at (24). The dental lab (26) is particularly adapted for defining finish line, as well as for other tasks such as designing prostheses, designing and manufacturing physical models of the dentition, and possibly also for manufacturing at least an external profile of the prostheses. The dental service center (23) is particularly adapted for manufacturing dental hardware that requires a very high degree of precision, for example inner surfaces of prostheses that are required to match external surfaces of copings, and possibly also the copings themselves.
