Crown & Bridge Restorations
Ultra Translucent Monolithic Zirconia
UT Monolithic Zirconia is highly recognised amongst the dental industry as it possesses high translucency
and good aesthetics, whilst obtaining and not compromising at all on strength. UT Monolithic Zirconia is
more durable when compared to other all ceramic restorations, therefore suitable for large anterior cases,
implant restorations and anterior or posterior bridges.
Layered Zirconia is suitable for small or large scale anterior cases as well as full mouth restorations
where a more natural but highly aesthetic result is desired. Furthermore, Layered Zirconia is able to disguise darker stumps ensuring the underlying colour does not come through.
IPS e.Max provides similar characteristics as Layered Zirconia in regards to being highly aesthetic however the final product can be achieved with minimal layering of porcelain or a full contour stain. IPS e.Max restorations require a stump shade to be provided to ensure the final shade is not affected by the underlying tooth colour. e.Max is not recommended for bridge restorations as the bridge connectors are not strong enough to withhold force.
IPS e.Max Veneers
IPS e.Max Veneers are favoured over other all ceramic veneers due to only requiring minimal prep and their impressive bonding techniques. IPS e.Max Veneers produce high aesthetics that consist of natural contours and shades.
Porcelain Fused To Metal (PFM)
Porcelain Fused to Metal (PFM) restorations are widely known for their aesthetics, bonding properties and strength, whilst also being recommended for cases where extremely dark stumps are present. Even though all ceramic materials have become extremely popular, the classic PFM continues to provide excellent results.
Full Metal restorations can be manufactured in either Non Precious Alloys, Semi Precious Alloys or Precious Gold Alloys. The different alloys vary in price ensuring that any budget can be met. Full Metal restorations limit bacteria retention due to the surface being smooth and are perfect for cases where occlusal space is limited. In addition they are well known and recommended for their longevity, durability and versatility
