Ultra Translucent Monolithic Zirconia

UT Monolithic Zirconia is highly recognised within the dental industry  for its high translucency and good aesthetics, without compromising on strength. UT Monolithic Zirconia is more durable than other all-ceramic restorations, making it suitable for large anterior cases, implant restorations and anterior or posterior bridges.

Layered Zirconia

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. Layered Zirconia can disguise darker stumps and ensure the underlying colour is not seen.

IPS e.Max

IPS e.Max provides similar characteristics as Layered Zirconia in regards to being a highly aesthetic restoration, however, the final product can be achieved with minimal porcelain layering or a full contour stain. IPS e.Max restorations require the provision of a stump shade to ensure the final shade is not affected by the underlying tooth. It is not recommended for bridge restorations as the bridge connectors are not strong enough to withstand force.

IPS e.Max Veneers

IPS e.Max Veneers are favoured over other all-ceramic veneers as they require minimal prep and offer impressive bonding techniques. These are very aesthetically pleasing because they 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. They’re also recommended for cases where extremely dark stumps are present. Despite all-ceramic materials becoming extremely popular in recent years, the classic PFM continues to provide excellent results for patients.

Full Metal

Full metal crown and bridge restorations limit bacteria retention with their smooth surface, and are perfect for cases where occlusal space is limited. In addition, they’re well known and recommended for their longevity, durability and versatility. Full metal restorations can be manufactured in either non-precious alloys, semi-precious alloys or precious gold alloys. These alloys vary in price which ensures any budget can be met.

Precision & Attention To Detail

All crown and bridge restorations we undertake, whether single crown or full mouth rehabilitation, is subject to the highest standard quality control procedures. Colour shade matching is an important part of a quality restoration, and we take great pride in our ability to create colour matching that delights our clients and their patients.
