We use the CEREC® inLab CAD/CAM technology to fabricate copings for all of our restorations. Our bridge copings are made of Vita In-Ceram® Zirconia, which enables more delicate frameworks to be created while leaving room for the ceramic work. This material is far more translucent than metal.
For crowns, we use either the In-Ceram® Zirconia described above or IPS e.max®. IPS e.max® is a lithium disilicate ceramic that provides strength and esthetics. If a bridge is required, we use In-Ceram, if not we use IPS e.max®.
For veneers, we use Vita Mark II® blocks. These copings can be milled very thin and are very translucent, allowing for optimal esthetics. We use Vita VM9® porcelain for Mark II copings, Vita VM7® for In-Ceram copings, and Ceram and crystal porcelain for e.max copings.
We use the Vita 3D Master Shade Guide for the Vita restorations and the traditional Vita Shade Guide for e.max. Contact us to learn more about the materials used at our dental lab
