Should I use different shade guides for different products?
This is not necessary; however, we routinely use the most popular shade guides (Vita, Chromascop, Illuminé, Bioform etc) and can convert and modify the shade you provide to perfectly match the desired restoration.
Other than the impression and completed prescription, what else should I send with my case?
For a successful case, we recommend you send the following:
|A Full-Arch Impression
|Length of Centrals from Cervical Tissue
Stump Shade (for all-ceramic restorations)
Facebow or Stick Bite
What types of articulators do you use?
We use a variety of articulators available to suit every case requirement:
|Kavo Protar 5
Whipmix model 2240
How do I block out a dark prep?
There are a number of ways to successfully block out a dark preparation, we routinely recommend utilizing a composite material on the prepared tooth before bonding (you can bond on top of the composite) or you can also utilize opaque cement.
