Communication between Dr. and Lab is vital. I am grateful for the open lines of communication between myself and the Dr.'s I do work for. Be sure to let your Lab know the good and the things that need adjusting to achieve what you desire, if the Lab isn't adjusting call Custom Crowns.

This bite splint is soft on the inside with a hard outer surface, slightly less rigid than the traditional hard over soft splints, for those patients who desire a little more comfort. No pre-warming needed. Custom Crowns offers both types of splints.

3 years... It's been a tremendous ride. I have been busy working, going digital, moving into a new space, and learning about the new materials that are offered. Zirconia has been changing/expanding rapidly. There are many options of strength and translucency available and I have worked with many of them. The Bruxzir Anterior is a beautiful option. I made #8 for a patient last year and when she was recently in for #9, she was so happy with the results the first time, she was excited to get this one. Katana is also a great alternative to E-Max for it's esthetics with added strength.

E-max, a common name in the dental field for the past 10 years. If you are still hesitant to try it check out this link. It shows a study of over 1000 restorations being observed. Notice the difference in the milled E-max vs. the pressed E-max. Pressing the material is stronger. It also has a better fit and esthetics due to it being hand waxed vs. computer designed. Pressing is the method I use when fabrication the restoration, whether it be a full crown, veneer, or a bridge. Tell me about your experiences with E-max and how long you have been metal free.
