Abstract: Hindsight can be a great teacher. The purpose of this editorial is to outline briefly a 2500-year-old debate about the importance of providing, or at least searching for, accurate definitions, particularly about the nature of beauty, and how the debate is relevant to modern dentistry owing to its emphasis on dentofacial aesthetics, followed by a brief discussion regarding the potential relevance of this debate to modern dentistry, including some comments on the ethics of current practice.

iTero Webinar – Why should we use iTero for that?


Receive 1 hour free CPD from Dental Update when you register with this webinar

During this webinar Eoin O’Sullivan will take you through his personal journey with digital scanning, explaining how he found himself in a dilemma when he had to replace his first iTero, after he had assumed that the scanner’s capabilities would transition to focus on orthodontics when it was bought out by Align Technology in March 2011. He will share his thoughts about which scanner would best suit his restorative practice, and why he opted for the next generation of iTero over all the other scanners on the market.
