With our onsite dental lab and in house ceramicist our patients are ensured beautiful custom restoration treatments for their teeth and dental implants. Many offices offer CAD/CAM (computer aided design/computer aided milling) technology crowns and bridges milled out of a solid Yttrium-Zirconia Oxide ceramic block resulting in less-than-ideal esthetics. Our office offers custom porcelain layered (by our in-house ceramist) crowns and bridges on a CAD/CAM Yttrium-Zirconia Oxide base resulting in ideal esthetics. Not all porcelain crowns and bridges are equal in quality or longevity.
