In our first-ever State of the Industry survey, LMT asked readers to indicate the most significant technological advances that occurred between 1980 and 1985. Here’s what they said:
• All ceramic crowns (Dicor and Cerestore)
• Laminate veneers/facings
• Computerized/automated porcelain furnaces, burnout machines and casting machines
• Light-cured resins
• Semi-precious and non-precious alloys
Looking at this list in hindsight, which of these five advances would you say had the most dramatic, lasting effect on your work?
