Our dream team of ceramist are the ultimate creators for beautiful aesthetic and functional restorations. Our ceramists have great artistic flair with an eye for detail and are trained in a number of ceramic systems including traditional porcelain bonded ceramics as well as newer systems such as all ceramic, pressed/milled and CAD/CAM zirconia substructures.
Care and attention of detail is one of the most important factors in dental technology and this is where it all begins with the production of our high precision models. Our plaster room team have a clear understanding that the precise making of models is one of the most important tasks to ensure an accurate production of our restorations is possible.
Here at smile design we use the Amann Girrbach giro form model system in order to guarantee precise, fast and cost effective manufacturing of models. Our plaster room team also have the responsibility of articulation using our fully and semi adjustable Artex and Denar articulators, the manufacturing of whitening trays and vacuum formed stents, guides and retainers.
Whether you need a single restoration or a large bridge, implants are a very viable and practical option. We have a wealth of knowledge and expertise in the field of Implant dentistry and it is a significant part of our business. At Smile Design we work with a variety of leading implant systems such as Straumann, Nobel Biocare, Ankylos, Astra, Osstem, Bio Horizons plus most key brands toensure that we have options available for every requirement.
This area of dentistry has made significant advances over the last 20 years and patients are now expecting results that are longer lasting with great beauty. With the new and improved materials such as pressable, milled and fieldspathic porcelains along with CADCAM technology allow us to produce veneers in the thinnest possible sections with minimal tooth reduction. Additionally these products can hide any discolouration whilst providing the same translucency, depth of colour and fluorescence found in natural teeth.
The all ceramic restoration is the ultimate in aesthetics and has become the main option of private dentistry in the last few years. Our metal free restorations are CADCAM designed milled in-house and can be manufactured in materials such as Zirconia Oxide, zolid or Pressed Ceramic, Emax, Vitablocs TriLuxe Forte or Vita Enamic offering superior aesthetics combined with high bio-compatibility and ever increasing strength helping over come issues where there may have been in the past for example: bridges. All ceramic restorations enables us to deliver outstanding aesthetics with the most predictable shade matching even for the most complex of cases as they react to light in a very similar way as natural teeth.
Patients demand for higher aesthetics in cosmetic dentistry are forever increasing and so is the need to find a dental laboratory that excels in this area. Here at Smile Design we have huge experience in the field of smile design delivering the ultimate in aesthetics. We strive to offer a restorative solution that will fulfill both the dentist’s clinical requirements and the patient’s expectations. We continually review our techniques and materials so that we can assure our clients that we are fully accomplished in the use of both traditional and modern materials whether it be for crowns, veneers, bleaching, orthodontics or a combination of treatments. We also offer advice on case design, preparation and bonding techniques to help you achieve the best outcome for your patients.
All though metal ceramics may be considered to of been overtaken by all ceramicc restorations the conventional metal ceramics will always be an option due to their robust durability and exceptional masking properties allowing for good aesthetics when an all ceramic solution is not viable. For our porcelain bonded crowns and bridges we offer a range of alloys such as sintron (Non-precious sintering metal for in-house dry milling) and along with our production process ensures great aesthetics and optimum functional occlusion can be achieved.
