With an overwhelming choice of materials and concepts available to dentists and patients in todays market, you can rest assured that our team of highly skilled crown and bridge metal workers and ceramists will achieve the outstanding results that are expected from Irelands premier dental laboratory.
More and more patients are asking for dental crowns that do not contain metal or other alloys. Over the past few years, new technology has given dental porcelain better properties. Procera AllCeram is a coping made of extremely dense-sintered aluminum oxide to maximize strength. It is made of a biocompatible material (comparable to titanium) that minimizes the risk of allergic reactions. Procera AllCeram creates a finished crown that has translucence very similar to the natural tooth, allowing you to achieve a result that makes it almost impossible to differentiate the artificial tooth from the natural one. The Procera technique guarantees high precision for optimal fit, backed by a five-year warranty from the manufacturer.
The Lava Crown and Bridge System can help you realise the future of dental restorations. The Lava system is an innovative and easy to use CAD/CAM system.Lava crowns and bridges are made from zirconium oxide (zirconia) and are suitable for anterior and posterior restorations of up to 4 units in length. The system offers a complete and comprehensive solution for your patients, providing ideal conditions for a consistent aesthetic appearance.
Precision CAD/CAM system for outstanding marginal fit. Lava™ has superior fit relative to leading competition. This greatly reduces the chances for decay below the crown/bridge, better fit keeps gums healthy and prevents food entrapment in those gaps that can lead to bad breath.-Proven high strength performance-1440 Mpa 3-pt. bend strength. So you can rest assured that the chance to go back with a failure is minimized.-5 year clinical study with 100% survival rate Assuring you of the best that 3M™ ESPE™ has to offer. -Natural translucency and unmatched aesthetics Lava™ ceramic overlay material is best suited for giving great looking final restorations.-Patented substructure system available in 8 shades. The tooth shaded internal frameworks ensure that the match to your natural tooth occurs from the substructure level unlike other PFM or Zirconia systems which have white or opaque substructures.
GC Gradia is a high strength micro-hybrid composite producing great aesthetics and powerful physical properties. It is the material of choice for inlays, veneers, crowns and bridges. GC Gradia gum allows you to reproduce unlimited natural gingival shades, while GC FitChecker II is the perfect material to check the fit of crowns, bridges and dentures. It enables you to easily identify even subtle misfittings.
Unlike other systems, Gradia uses a patented method of curing to pressurize composites in gradual layering stages prior to the final light-curing. Upon polymerization, the system first makes use of air pressure (to remove voids & porosities), then heat and light under water to completely polymerize the restoration. Doctors have been very impressed with the aesthetics achieved as well as the integrity and fit. Patients like the natural-looking fluorescence, great wear and high stain resistance. The GradiaTM system will eliminate pesky imperfections, ensuring you of a long-lasting and successful restoration.
Gradia composite materials enable the creation of highly life-like restorations with unparalleled physical properties when processed with the GradiaTM curing unit. Tested and proven effective for many years, this is an excellent choice for the patient with inadequate tooth structure for surface preparation.
With Gradia, you can offer natural-looking aesthetics with an attractive fluorescence that blends right into the dentition — and it will not wear down, destroy, or abrade the patient’s natural dentition. With years of clinical testing as an indirect composite, Gradia has proved successful in thousands of cases.
The IPS e.max concept comprises both an innovative lithium disilicate glass-ceramic (LS) – suitable mainly for single-tooth restorations – and a high-strength zirconium oxide for long-span bridges. One single layering ceramic for the entire system enables a uniform layering diagram and precise shade match. The combination of IPS e.max CAD (LS) and IPS e.max ZirCAD (ZrO) used in the innovative IPS e.max CAD-on technique now enables the fabrication of 4-unit posterior bridges that feature outstanding overall strength and high esthetics .
IPS e.max takes Empress to the max. Designed with simplicity and versatility in mind, IPS e.max allows you to select the most appropriate material – either high strength zirconium oxide or high strength glass ceramic – and the ideal fabrication technique for the case you are completing. When faced with challenging cases, you need to balance both strength and esthetic demands. This often requires multiple substructure materials and multiple systems. As a result, it is difficult to fabricate restorations and create a lifelike smile with a consistent vitality. Now, with e.max the dentist and dental technician can work in partnership to restore even the most challenging cases using one high strength conventionally cementable all ceramic system.
A single layering ceramic, IPS e.max Ceram, offers simplicity – ultimately delivering outstanding esthetics, and predictable shade matching even with difficult combination cases. By writing just one prescription for e.max you can be confident you are getting the strength and esthetics you demand.
IPS Inline, Natural Beauty provides pure esthetics. The fluorapatite leucite glass-ceramic features true-to-nature properties ranging from the light optical features to the enamel-like abrasion behaviour. With the well-balanced and excellently thought-out concept of IPS Inline, the individual design possibilities are virtually boundless. IPS Inline is compatible with most available alloys.
