Scanning with Alphabyte for ZR crowns for the doctor provides for a great learning tool for ascending the steep learning curve of placing pediatric ZR crowns. It’s a logistical time-saver of having to guess which crown to use or where to refine your prep. There’s definitely magic in utilizing the software with parents so that they can see there is added value in ensuring best-fit when it comes to sizing crowns.

As a clinician who performed posterior zirconia crowns prior to the development of this innovative software, I can truly say that AlphaByte has changed the way I practice and treatment plan, and I cannot imagine completing a posterior zirconia crown without it. The crown selector tool always provides the correct size crown for the space, which was the biggest challenge in performing the procedure. This has decreased my crown inventory and chair time as I no longer must try on multiple crowns. And if the crown does not seat as intended, the preparation guidance tool gives me the confidence and knowledge to reduce the exact amount of tooth, in the exact location, every time. Prior to AlphaByte, when completing posterior zirconia crowns, I would pick a crown that I thought would fit the intended tooth. Then, following the initial tooth preparation, it would be a back-and-forth between increasing tooth reduction or changing crown sizes to finally get a crown to seat fully. This was unpredictable, time consuming, resulted in many pulp exposures, and utilized a lot of inventory. AlphaByte eliminated all these challenges. I can only imagine this software will evolve into numerous dental applications, revamp dental education, and pioneer a new standard of care.

As a dentist that doesn’t do a lot of pediatric treatments, I don’t have the same clinical confidence with prefabricated crowns as someone who does them routinely. But with Alphabyte, what I lack in procedural experience, now I can make up for with technology. After completing my very first prefabricated zirconia crown case ever, on back-to-back primary molars, without pulpotomies, all in about 20 minutes—with a result that blended in perfectly with the natural, bright smile, I am a firm believer that Alphabyte can elevate any dentist’s skills to a new standard of conscientious, cosmetic care for kids.
