Crown and Bridge


Zerconia restorations

Zerconia is the ideal form of metal free restoration for crowns & bridges offering high strength & a natural appearance.
Restorations are created using the latest CAD/CAM technologies without veneering to guarantee a perfect fit for your patients. They are made from Wieland patented Zenostar ceramics which are gentle on the tooth substance during preparation, easily withstand masticatory forces & make chipping a thing of the past.


Our ceramic Porcelain restorations are manufactured using the IPS Inline System.
Ivolcar Vivodent recommend the following cements:

  • SpeedCEM – for conventional cementation
  • Multilink Automix – for adhesive cementation


Our Composite restorations are manufactured using Ivoclar Nexco Composites.

SR Nexco Paste is a purely light-curing lab composite with micro-opal fillers which allows you to achieve a consistent shade even if space is limited, because the shade effect is tolerant to varying layer thicknesses. SR Nexco Paste restorations achieve a durable shade stability and a lasting gloss as a result of the polymerization process. You can thus fabricate restorations with a very natural appearance in any light conditions.

The following cement is advised for Cementation:

  • Multilink Automix


We currently use Argen alloys which are the largest producer of precious alloys in the world and offer a full range of alloys for all types of laboratory work.

Our Laboratory is equipped with a Straumann CadCam scanning machine.

The technology computerises much of the Laboratory design and production process. It removes the build-up and casting processes which can impair the fit and aesthetics of restorations, yet still uses the skills of technicians and ceramists in designing & finishing the restoration.

What can Straumann CADCAM be used for?

  • Veneers
  • Inlays
  • Onlays
  • Crowns & Partial Crowns
  • Bridges (conventional & screw retained)
