More than ever before, people are looking for ways to improve the health and appearance of their teeth. Granite City Dental Lab provides the latest technologies with time-proven treatments to meet and exceed your patients' ever increasing expectations.

New porcelains are stronger, kinder to opposing dentition and more lifelike in opalescence and color. Laser welded connections are several times the strength of soldered connections while eliminating the risk of increased oxidation and porous materials. But the latest advanced treatment that has everyone smiling is implants.


IPS emax IPS emax®

All-ceramic restorations can be used to cover even dark tooth cores (e.g. if the tooth is severely discoloured or a titanium abutment is used). As long as you convey the correct colour of the core to the laboratory, the technicians will choose the IPS e.max lithium disilicate material with the required opacity to restore the natural esthetic appearance of the tooth.

Advantages

  • True-to-nature shade behaviour and excellent light transmission for highly esthetic solutions
  • Versatile applications and comprehensive spectrum of indications
  • Natural-looking esthetics ? irrespective of the shade of the prepared tooth
  • Adhesive, self-adhesive and conventional cementation

Laser-Assembled Implant Bar Frames

Laser-Assembled Implant Bar Frames

Combining dental alloys using conventional torch soldering techniques and materials can cause corrosion and separation in the connection areas and ultimately lead to failure.

Laser welding addresses these issues, allowing our technicians to precisely join parent metal connections without the use of flux, thus eliminating the risk of increased corrosion and porous materials. In addition the yield strength of laser welded connections are said to be 2.5 times the strength of soldered connections.

laser assembly leaves milled surfaces in pristine condition



Implants have proven to be the optimal alternative to conventional crown and bridge work. Single and Multi-units can be implanted without having to grind down healthy, adjacent teeth. For over-denture, laser-assembled titanium implant bars eliminate denture slippage and give patients a truer feeling of real teeth. All of this leads to a happier, more satisfied patient. And recent studies have indicated that the profit level for Dentists is about twice as high for implants as it is for regular crown and bridge work.
