Abstract

Proper trimming of stone dies is an essential step in fixed prosthodontics. Die trimming requires meticulous technique and a thorough understanding of required elements in die design. By dividing the die into three zones, die contour requirements can be better understood, discussed, and demonstrated. A two‐step technique provides optimal results, incorporating a logical plan with the use of proper magnification and illumination.
