Diagnostic wax-up

A diagnostic wax-up is the most important tool in planning for a potential restoration. This step gives you a preview of the desired look, while also considering the functional aspect of the process of transforming a patient's smile. Summum Dental Laboratory has extensive expertise in wax-ups for full-mouth reconstructions.

Fixed prostheses (bridges)

Using CAD/CAM technology, bridges are crafted from zirconia, non-precious and precious metals, and titanium. We also offer the possibility of pressing porcelain to a zirconia structure in specific cases. Being very familiar with zirconia, we are capable of producing monolithic zirconia bridges (up to two adjacent pontics) of any colour, with impressive degrees of characterization.

e.max/Empress crowns

Ceramic restorations have proven effective in recent years. An e.max crown of course provides a higher level of opacity and strength (360 Mpa), while an Empress crown provides greater translucence and less strength (160 Mpa). Both materials can be used for veneers and leave you plenty of flexibility in terms of treatment options. Summum Dental Laboratory is perfectly at ease working with these materials and can help you achieve a natural, even smile.

Zirconia crowns

Great strides have been made with zirconia in the last five years—more than with any other material. Historically known for being overly opaque, monolithic zirconia can now be used in several techniques that provide a more natural-looking translucence and remarkable strength (900 Mpa). Summum Dental Laboratory has gained undeniable expertise in manufacturing anterior zirconia crowns offering the possibility of custom characterization.

PFM crowns

Porcelain-fused-to-metal (PFM) crowns are an excellent choice for patients with bruxism. This type of material is handy when crowns and bridges are used in conjunction with attachments and partials. We can also provide substructures made of precious or non-precious metals, or titanium. Over the years, these have proven highly effective and durable with this kind of fixed prosthesis.
