Crown & Bridge

Crown and bridge cases remain the mainstay of any dental laboratory. For us these cases are complex and have attachments linking crowns to dentures. The best person to contact for denture cases is Keith Shrubb who has many years of experience in this area.

For further details of zirconia crowns, emax and dentine bonded crowns please see the links to the right.

Here is an example of a case.

 The secret to getting a single central crown to blend in (whether it be a PFM, zirconia or emax) is to ensure an accurate shade match, preferably at the laboratory and very detailed surface texturing by us.

Note how the surface texture of this porcelain fused to metal crown reflects the light similar to the natural tooth on the right.

Take a look at the large image at the end of this page, how many laboratories are able to show their cases this big and it still look good?
