Enhancing Analog with Digital and Artistry with Aleksandra Polczynski

Episode 310 · March 4th, 2024 · 58 mins 30 secs

About this Episode

Aleksandra Polczynski is an artist. Without even knowing what a dental technician was, she met and married a Master Dental Technician. The lab he worked at offered her a job after looking at some of her drawings. From there a passion and a career was born. She nailed her first few wax ups and was soon a ceramist. After partnering up with companies like GC America and Straumann, Aleksandra was soon teaching others the art of full arch composite and staining. Wanting to do more, she partnered up with a dentist and opened Visual Dental Arts where she gets to work one-on-one with patients to give them the results they want. Aleksandra talks about her life in office, teaching, the craziness of Lab Day Chicago, and how she embraced technology to enhance her analog and artistic side.

Did you know that not all Zirconia is the same?

ZirCAD Prime Zirconia from Ivoclar is uniquely produced with Gradient Technology which allows two powders that normally sinter at different intervals, to be combined into one material which sinters uniformly. The manufacturing process not only optimizes the translucent properties but also creates a seamless progression of shade while maintaining optimal strength.
