Implants

HiCeram Dental Laboratories specialize in fabrication of all kinds of implant restorations including custom abutments. The range of dental implants we restore include tissue-level and bone-level implants.

In general, there are two types of implant abutments: stock abutment and custom abutment. While the stock abutments purchased from the manufacturer are still widely popular, the benefits of using custom abutments are more evident. The precise fit and ability to maintain tissue support and inter proximal bone height distinguish custom abutments and make them the most demanded product manufactured by our laboratories.

At custom abutments Dental Laboratories we fabricate custom abutments using latest CAD/CAM technologies combined with special manual techniques. Custom abutments may be fabricated in Titanium, Zirconia,UCLA Gold adopt abutment, and Zirconia with Titanium interface (Hybrid.) Hybrid custom abutments become the most popular type of abutments for their durability and esthetics. For your case planning we strongly recommend contacting our implant specialists at (877) 448-3726 (877) HICERAM.

We fabricate custom abutments for the following implant manufacturers/systems:

  • Ankylos & Xive

Crown & Bridge

Crown & Bridge Restorations are still a very popular line of product we continue to offer to our clients. We use only the latest ADA approved materials. The composition of Alloys we use to fabricate your crowns is available upon request. Veneering porcelain used for Crown & Bridge Restorations is a high or low fusing material from the most famous porcelain maker on the market such as Noritake EX-3, Vita VM-13, IPS D.Sign, VMK MASTER, Creation CC.

To ensure the accuracy of the fit every step of the fabrication is checked under 20x microscope. The proximal contacts are checked on the solid model and occlusal contacts are fitted strictly to your specifications.

We exercise the highest precision of shade matching using VITA 3D-MASTER shade system,original VITA shade guide, Ivoclar’s Chromoscope, and other available shade guide systems on the market. For fabrication of gingival porcelain we will provide you with our very own shade guide system containing 6 different shades of gingival porcelain.

To discuss your preferences or other details please contact our certified technicians (877) 442-3726 | (877) HICERAM. We emphasis the importance of personal contact and one on one communication with our dentists.

Captek

The new Captek Nano™ group of materials is a new improved type of Captek that is stronger and more adaptable. This material can be used for any crown or bridge application.

Through the use of Nano technology, Captek engineers have developed three unique materials:Nano Bridge & Implant™ for all areas and high-stress uses whereas in the past only cast PFMs could be utilized, Universal for bicuspids and anterior’s requiring strength and esthetics, and Nano Esthetic Zone™ for incisors and lower cuspids where an extra thin coping offers aesthetic benefits. Captek Nano™ materials provide the same unrivaled fit and health as well as a life-like aesthetics Captek™ has always been praised for.

Please visit www.captek.com for complete details on Captek Nano™ materials, their specifications and uses.

Captek offers complete color control, regardless of the primary tooth structure.

  • Warm gold color simulates the vitality of living tooth structures, whereas ceramic cores are too transparent, grayish, or too white, which clearly increases the chroma.
  • Patented reflective surface is able to refract and reflect light. This ability to capture and scatter reflected light adds a superior vigor and unifying effect.
  • Captek substructure makes crown look beautifully and the tissue condition healthy.
  • Less aggressive preparation compared to the all-ceramic prep
  • Perfect biocompatibility and plaque resistance

Research from Harvard School of Dental Medicine has found that “the tissue surrounding Captek™ crowns had the most proximate appearance to the gingival surrounding of the adjacent teeth when compared to all-ceramics, aluminum and metal cores.”

CAD/CAM

Zirconia is a natural resource material. It is one of the oldest and most common elements in the terrestrial crust of Earth and it is the base for Zirconia (Zirconium dioxide ZrO2.) The studies of Zirconium dioxide show that it has outstanding fracture toughness and chemical resistance. Tests conducted on Zirconia prove that there is no allergic reaction to this material. We back up our Zirconia restorations with a life-time warranty.

It is a naturally translucent material. Zirconia’s qualities allow create naturally looking, durable, and highly aesthetic restorations. Biocompatibility of this material is superb, homogenic surface allows smooth polishing with no abrasion. The material is extremely acid-proof that does not allow absorption of pollutants which helps during chair side cleaning. Overall, the strength, natural whiteness, translucency, and excellent biocompatibility makes it perfect for all the dental products listed below.

Indication:

  • Anterior and posterior crowns, bridges of any span, cemented or screw retained implants.
  • Features/Benefits Metal-free Natural aesthetics, superior strength, high translucency, marginal integrity, wear compatibility
  • Preparation Chamfer margin design 1.2 mm Min. at the margin 1.5 – 2.0 mm reduction at incisal, facial, lingual.
  • Cementation Conventional cement (e.g. resin-modified glass ionomer) or dual cured
  • Adhesive resin Conventional cement (e.g. resin-modified glass ionomer) or dual cured
  • Adhesive resin  Composition Yttria stabilized Ytrium Zirconia  Physical Properties Flexural strength Fracture toughness CTE Modulus of elasticity >1500 MPa

Feldspathic Porcelain

Feldspathic veneers and crowns use a layering technique where layers of porcelain are laid down and the tooth is grown, much like a pearl or natural tooth grows to create Feldspathic veneers. This gives a natural, vivid, lustrous appearance to the veneers that create the most natural, life-like, smile makeovers that can be achieved.

We use both platinum foil and refractory model technique depending on the case condition. By hand layering Feldspathic porcelain, our ceramists create veneers of dynamic beauty and pearl-like translucency. Feldspathic veneers can be made as thin as 0.3 mm to 0.5 mm which requires far less tooth reduction than other veneering alternatives. These remarkable veneers are indicated for slight contour and color changes, and are available in bleach shades. Utilizing diagnostic wax-up and study models are imperative to create an ultimate result for your patients.

Indication:

  • Features/Benefits: Highly cosmetic with minimal thickness, hand layered for dynamic beauty, pearl-like translucency, may be fabricated as thin as 0.3 mm to 0.5 mm, available in bleach shades, indicated for slight contour & color changes
  • Preparation Shoulder/chamfer margin design 1.0 mm Min. at the margin 1.5 – 2.0 mm reduction at incisal, facial lingual
  • Cementation Light cured bonding (e.g. veneer, thin/translucent) or dual cured adhesive resin
  • Anterior/ Posterior, Veneers, Crowns, Inlays/ Onlays
