Whether it is traditional model, or a digital scan, our talented experienced technicians use industry-leading design software from 3shape and exocad to design functional restorations that mimic the surrounding definition. All zirconia crowns are milled in-house to give us full control of the crowns produced. Our Finish technicians use high powered microscopes to to fit and finish our crowns to a higher standard than our competition. After stain and glaze all cases are subjected to a quality control inspection to ensure that the expectations of our clients are met.
Zirconia restorations are ideal for patients who:
- require extra strength for a long span bridge
- grind their teeth
- where cosmetics are important, but need the extra strength
WDL additionally utilizes Zirconia for:
- custom abutments
- inlays and onlays
- substructure for porcelain crowns
