About this Episode

Let's be honest, dental technology is one of the greatest careers. You get to create and help people at the same time. Super satisfying. But imagine if you also got to do it for movies and television, creating iconic characters. That is exactly what Gary Archer does. He was asked to make a denture in one of the most famous scenes involving a denture falling out of a mouth and from there they never stopped. Making prosthetic teeth for hundreds of movies and shows, Gary Archer's list is impressive. Check it out here:

Gary talks about getting into the special effects industry, a few of the amazing movies and TV shows he's worked on, and the techniques he uses to get the desired (or undesired) effect that help shape the characters we loved and hated.

Whip Mix is pleased to add VeriCast OS, a burnout pattern print resin, to Whip Mix’s growing Veri Brand Resin offering. VeriCast OS works with LCD and DLP printers in both 385 and 405 nanometer wavelengths.

It prints accurate and detailed crowns, bridges, substructures, and RPD frameworks, is durable, and leaves no ash or residue.

Since it burns out cleanly, VeriCast OS is ideal for investment casting and ceramic pressing. For optimal results, we recommend Whip Mix ResinVest, which is a phosphate investment made specifically for burning out printed or milled resin patterns.
