Exciting new technological developments are revolutionizing the laboratory industry. The technology, materials, and techniques may be changing, but the concepts of occlusion, fit , contact, and proper contours remain the same. The 75 year history of Bay View Dental Laboratory was built on general restorative dentistry and we are proud to continue that tradition today by offering our customers a variety of beautiful, affordable restorations.
IPS e.max Crowns and All-Ceramics
IPS e.max has become the industry standard material for metal-free, all-ceramic restorations. IPS e.max provides unmatched strength (360 – 400 MPa flexural strength) and versatility. At Bay View Dental Lab, we use e.max as the primary ceramic material for our layered crowns, pressed monolithic crowns, veneers, and inlay / onlays.
Layered e.max Crowns
In 1987 Bay View was the first commercial lab in the country to offer IPS empress. Over twenty five years later, we continue as a leader in the esthetic field with IPS e.max. You will see our work featured in various journals and at seminars around the country. You can even see our layered e.max featured on Ivoclar’s e.max web site.
Pressed e.max Crowns
Pressed full contour all-ceramic crowns provide your best choice for strong, metal free, and highly esthetic restorations. The high translucency lithium disilicate material allows natural tooth color to show through and picks up chameleon effects from the prep and adjacent teeth.
Recent advances in the field of CAD/CAM design have opened a new door in the field of dentistry. This advanced technology, teamed with the high strength of zirconia are creating beautiful, strong, and highly accurate restorations.
Full-Contour Zirconia Crowns
Full-contour zirconia crowns are the strongest, most fracture resistant, tooth colored restorations in dentistry today. When a full-cast gold crown is contraindicated due to cost or color, our full-contour zirconia is a material you can prescribe with total confidence.
Layered Zirconia Crowns
Layered zirconia restorations are esthetically exceptional and have shown a lower failure and fracture rate than either metal-ceramic or metal-free ceramic restorations. We offer zirconia bridges, splinted single units, and free standing single unit crowns.
Metal Ceramic Crowns (PFM)
The porcelain fused to metal crown has been the standard in restorative dentistry for decades. The predictability and reliability of PFM crowns have allowed them to stand the tests of both time, and technology. At Bay View Dental Laboratory, we still make all of our crowns in-house, refusing to outsource overseas.
Full Cast Gold Crowns
While most patients request tooth color for their restorations, a significant number still opt for the beauty and functional stability of gold. Gold work is a lost art in many labs, but not here at Bay View. We use only ADA approved Type II, III, and IV High Noble Alloy.
