All ceramic crowns

The all ceramic restoration has become the mainstay of private dentistry in the last few years. Offering superior aesthetics combined with high bio-compatibility and ever increasing strength.

CBC all ceramics

It is the one area the major dental companies have concentrated their development on.

Different products and production methods mean that ceramic restorations can be created in nearly every case, their natural mimicry of the tooth's qualities mean that the aesthetics are unrivalled and the biocompatibility of ceramics remove almost completely any complications arising from tissue rejection.

These factors are paramount in its position as the fastest growing sector of the worldwide dental industry.

Look to the right for choices and favoured restorative systems.

Feldspathic Porcelain Crowns/Veneers

This technique has been used for many years to construct porcelain jacket crowns and veneers for the anterior region.

more

As a low cost restoration, it has over the years proven to be a very popular choice for basic restorative options.

Its low strength and advancements in other systems have caused it to be superseded in almost all cases by the newer more versatile pressed ceramic materials.

  • Anterior NHS Veneers
  • Benefits:
  • Low Cost
  • Biocompatability

We have been making these for more than 30 years, due to limited strength they are now restricted to the NHS where cost is paramount.
