Zirconia Dental Laboratory in Santa Rosa CA
The Art Of Aesthetics is a zirconia dental laboratory in Santa Rosa CA, just a few minutes north of San Francisco CA. We have been conducting research and testing our zirconia for the past 20 years to determine the best raw materials, processes, formulation, and milling systems to bring you the best quality zirconia dental laboratory in Santa Rosa CA. Our successful production methods, precise scanning, milling process, sintering, and porcelain fabrications are second to none. Our precise shading can be noticed in our layered zirconia crowns and bridges. Send us a few cases and see what you have been missing. Your patients will be grateful for many years to come. In addition, we guarantee the fit.
The high quality layered zirconia crowns and bridges are porcelain fused to computer-aided design (PFZ), computer-aided manufacturing (CAD-CAM). Zirconia coping is metal-strength-framed and layered using the most aesthetic porcelain powders. It has approximately 60% opacity and covers light to medium-dark dentin shades. It is not to be confused with full zirconia crowns and bridges (CAD-CAM monolithic). Layered zirconia crowns and bridges are similar to PFM restorations, except that the framework is made of strong CAD-CAM zirconia material. It is the best possible combination of advanced CAD-CAM technology with the precision of highly trained and experienced ceramists at the best quality zirconia dental laboratory in Santa Rosa CA. Depending on the case, we use e.max (emax) powder for superior aesthetics or zirconia power for superior durability.
The high quality layered zirconia crowns and bridges are comparable with the human body in that they contain no metal. Zirconium oxide (ZrO2) is the next generation of ceramic materials. Zirconia consists of pre-sintered zirconium oxide, which is milled in its soft state and sintered overnight. Zirconia is a top-of-the-line dental restoration material. No other restorations can match zirconia in strength, fit, aesthetic appearance, biocompatibility, comfort, and durability.
The high quality layered zirconia crowns and bridges have superior properties, such as steel-like strength (3-point flexural strength is approximately 1,150 MPa), superior aesthetic appearance, biocompatibility, and low thermal conductivity. Aesthetic layered zirconia crowns and bridges can only be obtained from The Art of Aesthetics zirconia dental laboratory in San Francisco CA North Bay.
The indications for layered zirconia crowns and bridges are anterior and posterior crowns and bridges up to 4 units. It is possible to fabricate them as thin as 0.5 mm; however, we strongly recommend at least 1.5 mm for a stronger framework and to provide ample clearances for aesthetic layers for porcelain powders with shade built-in.
