We can provide almost any type of restoration in an extensive range of materials to offer the very best solution for any given situation. The materials include:
All Ceramic restorations include:
Zirconia – the material of choice for strength. It can be used almost the same way as metal based restorations from single units to full arch bridges, Maryland bridges and implant abutments/restorations but offers a far more aesthetic and biocompatible restoration than conventional bonded restorations. We can provide several different options including the translucent 3M™ ESPE™ Lava™ Plus and Straumann Zerion™ Zirconia frameworks, restorations and custom abutments. We also offer the choice of full contoured or layered Zirconia.
IPS E.Max® CAD – Strong material, but weaker than zirconium due to infiltration of glass, which improves translucency, but weakens at the same time. This offers high aesthetics for a variety of situations such as single crowns, veneers, inlays and onlays.
IPS Empress® CAD, Vita Mark II and Vita TriLuxe – similar characteristics and uses as IPS E.Max® CAD.
Composite/Resin Nano Ceramic technology restorations:
3MTM ESPETM LavaTM Ultimate Restorative - a composite type material based on Resin Nona Ceramic (RNC) technology. This excellent new material offers natural tooth-like wear and shock absorbance with no abrasion or opposite tooth damage. It also comes with a 10 year warrantee.
Cobalt Chrome – this is a highly versatile and pure material, not to be confused with cast chrome cobalt. It is suitable for a broad range of applications including single crowns, bridges, Maryland bridges and full contour crowns. Anything possible in conventional cast metals can be done using CAD/CAM Chrome. We can provide both Straumann Coron® and Renishaw incise cobalt-chromium frameworks and restorations.
Titanium – most often used for custom abutments but can also be used for similar restorations to CAD/CAM Chrome.
Polyamide, Polycon® ae and Polycon® cast – a range of temporary materials that provide options for high strength and aesthetics.
