Ceramic Systems

Dental ceramic systems are primarily used to fabricate indirect restorations such as crowns and bridges. These porcelain systems aim to replicate the esthetics and strength of natural teeth and crowns and bridges can be produced using pressing or layering techniques depending on the ceramic system being used.

Ceramics that mimic nature!

There are five components for individual solutions, including glass ceramic and zirconia-based cores. Because the system can utilize milling, pressing, or a combination of the two, it is very effective for use in cases where a combination of strength and aesthetics is paramount.

The beauty of the system is it utilizes a single veneering porcelain kit, so multiple e.max substructures can be created by either milling or pressing, and the restorations can be correctly shade-matched to each other.
