The E-Max crown is a type of all-ceramic crown made from a single block of lithium disilicate ceramic which is preferred for its longer lasting, aesthetic qualities. This crown is worn due to their highly attractive appearance which ensures that they compliment the rest of your teeth. It is considered a good option for damaged, stained or poor quality teeth. This is a type of all-ceramic crown with an appealing translucent color which is combined with extra strength and durability.
A zirconia crown is a popular type of all-ceramic crown which is worn to improve the appearance of a tooth which has become stained or disfigured over the years. They are durable, easy to wear and long lasting. Plus zirconia crowns have a translucent appearance which means that they are indistinguishable from your own teeth. It is hard to spot a zirconia crown amongst natural teeth. Zirconia is safe to use and preferred by many people to porcelain fused to metal crowns.
Full Contour Zirconia is a crown made to full contour of solid zirconia. Although much less esthetic than e.max, it is far stronger (800-900mpa) and therefore well suited to withstand severe parafunctional activity. With these virtually unbreakable crowns, you can offer your patients the strength to withstand severe bruxing and avoid metal restorations. These crowns can only be made by CAD/CAM. They are milled from a block of “green” zirconia, infiltrated with a special coloring liquid and then sintered at 1500 C in a special oven. They are then customized with paint-on shades, polished, and then covered with a layer of glaze for a final shine.
The diagnostic wax-up is the method or process through which practitioners can fully visualize the true restorative needs of their patients. In fact, it is probably the greatest working tool in dentistry. By gathering current information from the initial exam, the integration and assimilation process begins. In some ways the process is like assembling many pieces into a completed jigsaw puzzle, only the goal of the diagnostic wax-up is to develop a unique, complete treatment plan to benefit the patient’s dental health.
Perfect Impressions has a dedicated color correct shade room for your patient custom shades. We use the most current digital photography in an effort to match the exact color for your patients.
Complex cases are not limited to the number of units in a case. They range from single unit cases to full mouth reconstruction. Even straight forward cases can be complex cases. We recognize this and help to expand your view of the entire patient experience. Perfect Impressions has the knowledge and planning skills that are essential for helping the doctor manage complex cases and to help avoid unforeseen patient and dental problems.
Scanning / Design / Milling / 3D Printing
Through the synergy of oral scanning, CAD/CAM and 3D printing, dental technicians can accurately and rapidly produce restorations, stone models and a range of orthodontic appliances.
Perfect Impressions will accept any intraoral scan from multiple scanners. We convert an .stl file to Exocad software for design and mill restorations using Planmeca and Dentsply Sirona milling machines.
Traditional methods for creating impressions involve materials and trays that are uncomfortable to the patient.
Many dentists are moving away from these traditional methods to improve patient satisfaction, reduce chair time, and provide more precise and accurate impressions.
Perfect Impressions has added 3D printing technology to the digital workflow increasing efficiencies to the next level.
Our laboratory has eliminated these inefficiencies inherent with manual plaster modeling.
3D printing compliments traditional processes to stream line manufacturing and open the way to new business models.
