From Technician to Technician!
Jörg Müller - MDT, founder and developer of Aesthetic-Press:
'During my career as a dental technician, the ultimate goal was to create a consistent, high quality standard for each case every technician produced in the lab. Even for younger and less experienced technicians, a consistent, predictable and reproducible level of the highest quality can be achieved with the AP system.
The simplicity of the integrated product line is one of its strongest points. Next to our unique inventions, we’ve improved and streamlined the workflow into a smooth product line without clutter or more than a technician needs to be successful. In essence, we have made dental technology faster and more profitable. Aesthetic-Press has developed a groundbreaking change of how porcelain systems are designed and used.
The AP press ceramic (feldspar based) can be re-pressed onto an already pressed crown or bridge. The option of layering and the advantage of re-pressing used ingots, is just another example of how AP is both a practical and economic system.'

In 1993, working closely with Claude Sieber for several years on anterior aesthetics and photography, Jörg opened his first dental laboratory in Düsseldorf. Since then, he has been teaching courses on posterior wax- up, the function of the TMJ, and ceramics for dental technicians, worldwide.
In 1999 Jörg moved to San Francisco, California and established his dental laboratory in downtown San Francisco. While working closely with his dentists and patients, he developed the Aesthetic Press System. In 2005, Jörg founded Aesthetic-Press LLC with which he developed a system to standardize a workflow for consistent and reproducible high-end restorations for technicians to use on a
