I would love to know how many labs are still using metal substructures. I know cad cam and milling are the proposed substructures of the future, but I'd love to know how many labs out there are still filling the demand for alloy based restorations. Is there still a demand for metal? How many of your doctors are requesting all ceramic...how many are resisting?
