Our Crown & Bridge/Milling department opened in 2014 with the purchase of a Wieland/Ivoclar Zenotec Select Hybrid, it is a five axis wet and dry milling machine using 3shape design software and the employment of a very gifted ceramist.
We mill Zirconia shaded/unshaded/anterior and multi layered Zirconia for ourselves and other laboratories as well as e.max, which we don’t press, milled gives a better result, as you cannot see where the sprue was or the junction where the pressed ingots fuse together. Also the finished surface is better on a milled e.max. Milling e.max in the early days needed lots of perseverance and patience, it is a bit more expensive than pressing but we believe the results are worth it.
We can provide to dentists and laboratories alike, from uncrystalized e.max, Zirconia coping to finished metal/Zirconia full arch bridges.
