Traditionally porcelain, or ceramic restorations are fabricated in a laboratory. Some dental practices will send an impression taken in Queensland, all the way to China and back again. Just think about how much that is adding to global warming! Furthermore, many patients can relate to the embarrassing situation when their temporary crown has fallen out.
Many of our crowns, veneers, and inlays are fabricated while you wait on site using a state-of-art CAD-CAM mill similar to a 3D printer. To learn more about this click here
At Heal Dental Care, we either use CAD-CAM while you wait, or we use local Australian dental technicians to manufacture all of our crowns, bridges, veneers and inlays. Porcelain (ceramic) is often considered the material of choice for these treatments because it is extremely strong, aesthetic and biocompatible.
