All Ceramic Work
When aesthetics are a priority an all-ceramic restoration is the key to a natural appearance. At Trevor Wilson Dental Ceramics we use;
- Lava - IPS Emax - Zirconia - GC Gradia - Opalite
All Zirconia cases are scanned and designed in our laboratory and sent to the milling centre for production.
Please note, all our metal free work carries a 5-year guarantee against clinical failure.
IPS e.max Press are biocompatible lithium disilicate glass-ceramic ingots. They offer the fit, form, and function which is expected from pressed ceramics. In addition, they offer improved flexural strength (400 MPa). With optimized esthetic properties.
Opalite is a monolithic translucent restoration for crown and bridge. As the restoration is Cad Cam designed and milled from a single piece of zirconia these restorations have many advantages for the clinician and patient. Up to 90% of the restoration is manufactured in modern milling machines and only the final colouring and glaze are added by an experienced technician. This allows for a strong and accurate restoration which is biocompatible and more aesthetic than metal for the patient, along with giving a price stable, reliable and cost-effective for the dentist.
- As a solid piece of Zirconia, this is one of the strongest restorations available today.
- Suitable for Bruxist patients giving a more natural alternative to gold crowns.
- As designed and manufactured used computer-aided design, the restorations are more accurate than any traditionally made restoration with a perfect marginal fit.
- As manufactured predominately by milling machinery rather than handcrafted, the consistency of the product is almost 100%.
- Manufacturing using milling machinery allows to keep costs to a minimum and provide a cost-effective restoration.
- No metal in the Opalite restoration therefore completely biocompatible.
The laboratory regularly undertakes smile design cases, taking into account, macro-aesthetics, and micro-aesthetics. Which generally include;
- Labial planes
- Mesial and distal line angles
- Colour, including graduations and translucency
- Incisal edge position
- Midline position
- Golden proportions
- Long axis
From undertaking diagnostic wax-ups and following laboratory protocols, collating relevant information from the patient to constructing the finished restoration, we believe this approach is fundamental to the success of the restoration and ultimately, patient well-being.
