ADVANCING THE ART AND SCIENCE OF DENTISTRY

All-ceramic crowns and veneers can be fabricated from either a refractory dye technique or pressed ceramic. While either fabrication technique can be a viable solution for most ceramic veneer cases, there are distinct advantages and disadvantages to both techniques. The key to aesthetic success remains largely in the artistic capabilities of the ceramist. Materials and techniques work differently in different hands. Therefore, it is imperative to build a relationship with the laboratory that suits your needs both functionally and aesthetically. Sending preoperative, preparation and provisional photographs and study models as references will provide the best chances of creating the smile envisioned by you and the patient.

We invite you to contact Reconstructive and Implant Dental Center at 913-492-2233 to learn more about laboratory-created all-ceramic crowns and veneers in Overland Park, Kansas, and book a visit with our prosthodontist, Dr. EDward M. Amet.
