We design and mill all zirconia restorations in-house and offer a discounted rate for digitally-submitted cases. 

FCZ (Full Contour Zirconia) is an ideal option for bruxir patients. At a microscopic level, its monolithic crystalline structure is smooth, which aids in decreasing wear on opposing teeth while providing impressive strength of 700-1100 MPa.

Our PFZ (Porcelain Fused to Zirconia) has a flexural strength of 1200 MPa. It can be milled as a traditional coping, or in cases where anterior incisal function is heavy, we mill the lingual in zirconia and add a porcelain facial.

Ivoclar Vivadent has made continuous advancements in the field of pressable ceramics. With its incredibly realistic shades and translucency, IPS e.max is ideal for anterior crowns, veneers and bridges. 

IPS e.max Press are lithium disilicate glass-ceramic ingots in different shades and levels of translucency. They offer a strength of 500 MPa. The pressed, tooth-colored, highly-aesthetic restorations are stained and/or veneered with IPS e.max Ceram and glazed.


Review the indications and minimum thickness for IPS e.max restorations. Review the general prep guide for IPS e.max restorations.



CELTRA is a similar product to e.max. Celtra combines the strength of zirconia with the translucency of glass ceramic to produce an extraordinarily natural result.

Celtra creates an opalescent effect with its translucent exterior, blending seamlessly with natural dentition, which makes this material ideal for anterior crowns and veneers. 

The zirconia-reinforced lithium silicate (ZLS) strength of 500+ MPa makes this material ideal for posterior restorations as well.

LiSi is a high-strength lithium disilicate ingot with proprietary HDM (High Density Micronization) technology that equally disperses micro-crystals (rather than traditional larger-size crystals) to fill the entire glass matrix.

It has a biaxial flexural strength of >500MPa and virtually no reaction layer when divested. The material is antagonist-friendly and wear-resistant. 

The result is the ultimate combination of strength and aesthetics, making GC Initial® LiSi Press perfectly suitable for all types of restorations through all levels of transparency

Indications include single-unit crowns and up to 3-unit bridges.
