B&B Dental Tech offers a variety of Ceramic, Lucite, and Fiberglass dental products. From Bruxzir to Zirconia, we can produce extremely durable and aesthetically pleasing prosthetics.
- Each completed design is inspected for quality before and after milling.
- We mill only medical grade, isostatically pressed zirconia.
- We maintain our mill and tools for high precision, micro fracture free restorations.
Zirconia bridges offer flexural strength equivalent to traditional porcelain-fused-to-metal restorations, but eliminates the gingival darkening some patients experience with non-precious or semi-precious PFMs. Since the zirconia is stained to the color of the patient’s tooth, exposed metal margins due to gingival recession are a thing of the past.
We design each bridge to maximize marginal integrity and enhance aesthetic quality. Our Zirconia bridges seat easily, maximize patient satisfaction, and generate referrals.
Once placed, zirconia bridges easily blend with the patient’s existing dentition through its ability to transmit the color of adjacent teeth. Our master ceramists can match the shade and character of any natural dentition and we excel at mimicking Mother Nature.
B&B FibreSmile (Trinia)
B&B FibreSmile is composed of lightweight composite of layered fiberglass and resin. Although FibreSmile is not a ceramic, it is equal to, if not surpassing, the aesthetic qualities of Dental Ceramics. B&B Dental Tech has received enormous positive feedback. Dentists are very satisfied with this material's chair control and easy adjustment. Patients are highly satisfied with its weight and the natural comfort once placed in the mouth. Trinia also demonstrates the same versatility as typical ceramics. As with all materials there are few contraindications. Specifically, FibreSmile is not recommended for patients with para-functional habits, such as bruxism.
E.Max Porcelain Crowns
What is E.MAX ?E.Max is a lithium disilicate used when aesthetics are paramount to your case. It is also one of the most versatile restorative options available. Pressed E.Max simulates the opalescence, translucency and light diffusion properties of a natural tooth for ideal beauty and undetectable porcelain crowns.
Why E.MAX ?Consider its characteristics:
- 400 MPa flexural strength in vivo wear rates comparable to normal enamel
- Pressed to contour
- Can layer enamel porcelains
- Bondable and cementable
- Stronger than Lucite reinforced
- Natural variations of color and translucency
Considerations for Use:
- Single esthetic crowns and some bridges
- When translucency is desirable
