Types of Crowns & Bridges
Layered Zirconia core and 3/4 zirconia occlusion

With the use of aesthetic porcelain finish on all layered restorations we are able to provide a natural look. This is done by creating a cutback restoration in zirconia, and then layering porcelain on to the restoration to provide translucency. Layered zirconia provides exceptional strength and a nice aesthetic finish.


Emax veneers are a conservative option to maintaining tooth structure. Lithium Disilicate is the pressed ceramic material of choice. They must be etched and bonded.

Monolithic E.Max or Zirconia

Monolithic restorations are completely milled out of zirconia with no cutback for layering of porcelain. e.Max monolithic is a pressed ceramic high translucency material that is incredibly strong and can be used without a layered porcelain veneer due to its improved aesthetic characteristics, recommended use for e.max full crown is anterior and premolar restorations providing the adequate reduction of preparation is achieved. Monolithic HTML zirconia offers the highest tensile strength of 1125MPa. They can also be fixed using the clinician’s preferred conventional cement. e.Max restorations are etched and treated before leaving the lab allowing the doctor to do a bonded technique and Zirconia cannot be etched but can still bonded to a sandblasted interior. These restorations are custom stained to provide a natural colour and translucency.

Aesthetic Zirconica

Aesthetic zirconia offers the properties of both layered and monolithic materials, providing the strength of zirconia with a natural finish. High translucency zirconia can be used in monolithic or layered restorations and is good for anterior or posterior placements. we offer two levels of aesthetic zirconia; STML brings the advantage of incisal translucency while maintaining a strong tensile stength of 748MPa – indications for STML are premolars to molars and 3 unit bridges. UTML is our highest aesthtic zirconia solution allowing for the most translucent lifelike restoration, still very strong with a 557MPa allowing for great restorations while utilizing a monolithic restoration. indications for UTML are single unit anterior and pre molar restorations.

Porcelain Fused to Metal

A standard restorative technique that is still commonly used, PFMs provide a long-term, functional result in situations where there is sufficient room to properly layer ceramic that will withstand occlusal stress. We over several types of alloy used in PFMs that vary in price and performance based on the percentage of precious metal used.

Full Gold

Gold crowns are commonly made using High Noble Alloy. A highly malleable alloy, gold enables a highly accurate crown-to-tooth fit. The durability of alloy can be very forgiving on opposing dention meaning lack of wear to opposing dentition. The superior strength makes gold alloy a popular choice for posterior placements.

Before and After

Customer One

Patient originally presented with the following concerns:

  • Overall tooth staining and coloring
  • Mal-alignment of teeth
  • Lack of tooth symmetry
  • Gingival recession

A diagnostic wax up was utilized for case planning and patient communication. This was a critical first step in determining the viability of the treatment plan as well as demonstrating to the patient during consultation what we can achieve as a final result, thereby, providing the patient the opportunity to see a mock up before committing to the treatment plan.

Once the case was a go with the use of great teamwork between the dentist and our lab we were able to address all concerns and achieve a very nice result through the use of eMax full crown anterior restorations.

All members involved on this case were extremely happy with final outcome and patient went home with a fresh new smile!

Customer Two

Patient originally presented with the following concerns:

  • Poor function
  • Diastema spacing
  • Worn and sensitive teeth
  • Deep overbite

Through the use of mounted models and a diagnostic wax up the case was treatment planned to increase the vertical dimension in order to develop a more ideal occlusion and demonstrate to the patient what was achievable in both improved function and esthetics.

The patient accepted the treatment plan and we were on our way to get this smile looking great.

Through the use of P.F.Ms in the posterior and Zirconia Core in the anterior, all with veneering porcelain, we were able to achieve a dramatic improvement! The patient was extremely happy with the results and enjoying their fresh new confident smile.
