Also referred to as glass ceramic, feldspathic porcelain will self-glaze and is used for porcelain veneers, porcelain jacket crowns, inlays, and onlays. It is the most translucent material we have, and is therefore ideal for beautiful restorations placed over ideal colored stumps. Once bonded, the original strength of the tooth is restored. We offer both traditional and digital methods for fabrication. Our digital method utilizes EF (extra fine diamond) burs to produce perfect margins.
Porcelain Veneers $182.
Traditional method. Hand stacked and layered, these are what you see when you look in the magazines. When placed over ideal preps, they are gorgeous. Available in all shades.
Vita TriLuxe Forte *E $129.
Digital method. A polychromatic block, consisting of incisal, middle, gingival, and cervical layers. Ideal for multi-unit cases. Available in shades: 1M2, 2M2, and 3M2.
Vita ReaLife *E $129.
Digital method. A polychromatic block, consisting of dentin shade wrapped with enamel, giving the most realistic digital method of reproducing natural teeth. Available in shades: 1M2, 2M2, and 3M2.
Dental ceramics are stronger than porcelains, but will not self-glaze; they must have an applied glaze. Some ceramics can be traditionally fabricated using the pressing technique, but all can be fabricated digitally. Some have variable translucency/opacity choices, and others do not. HT= High Translucency LT= Less Translucency MO= Medium Opacity HO= Hi Opacity. MO and HO require layering for translucency.
e.Max Press $156.
Traditional method. Monochromatic- ideal for posterior crowns. Available in all shades and in HT and LT translucency levels.
e.Max Press Layered $182.
Traditional method. Cut back and hand layered with porcelain for incisal translucency. Ideal for anterior crowns and 3 unit bridges. Available in all shades and in LT, MO, and HO translucency levels.
e.Max Cad/Cam *E $129.
Digital method. Monochromatic- ideal for posterior crowns, inlays, and onlays. Available in all shades, and in HT and LT translucency levels.
e.Max Cad/Cam Layered $149.
Digital method. Cut back and hand layered with porcelain for incisal translucency. Ideal for anterior crowns. Available in all shades, and in LT, MO, and HO translucency levels.
Empress Multi *E $129.
Digital method. A polychromatic block, consisting of transitional gingival/incisal shading. Will not block out undesirable stump colors, but is available in all shades.
Zirconia is the newest dental ceramic, and is rapidly becoming the material of choice. The first
generation of zirconia was very white, and very opaque. It could only be used for copings and frameworks, and had to be veneered with porcelain. The second generation was shaded zirconia, which was less opaque and came in a few different shades, but it still required veneering with porcelain. The third generation was called translucent zirconia. It did not require layering with porcelain, but is monochromatic and not very translucent. A few labs, including us, internally color our translucent zirconia with incisal and dentin colors before sintering, giving our restorations a polychromatic shade. We also mill our zirconia with carbide burs, rather than grinding with diamond burs, producing perfectly milled margins.
Porcelain Fused to Zirconia $189.
Coping or framework is produced digitally, the porcelain is applied by hand. PFZ can be used anywhere PFM can be used. We utilize TZI ( translucent zirconia ) for our framework and Vita VM9 for our veneering porcelain, giving our PFZ's unsurpassed strength and beauty.
Full Contour Zirconia *E $129.
Digital method. FCZ utilizes TZI ( translucent zirconia ), so it does not require veneering with porcelain. FCZ comes in all shades and can be used for a single crown up to a full arch restoration.
Our newest FC Zirconia option. It's just as translucent as e.Max, but 66% stronger! Can be used in anterior or posterior, single crowns or 3 unit bridges.
*E denotes the ExpressCrownschoices. Three days in lab at no extra charge ( 4 days for FCZ ). Next Day ( 24 hour turnaround ) is available for $39. Same Day ( 3-4 hours in lab ) is available for an additional $79., and requires advance notice. FCZ not eligible for same-day.
