Because you haven’t “gone digital” does not mean you can’t benefit from digital dentistry’s finer points. We can work with traditional PVS (polyvinylsiloxane) impressions utilizing our digital scanning technologies. Using a clean PVS impression, we will “digitalize” the models derived from your PVS impressions and design your crown to exacting parameters and aesthetic desires. Utilizing our digital resin 3D printers, Resin models can be “printed” to check fit, contacts and occlusion. The ability to digitally view dies at great magnification ensures clean margins and excellent fit. Go “model-less” and save! So accurate is the digital impression that we forgo making a model returning only the final crown to you.

Porcelain Fused to Metal (PFM)
In a world of growing all-ceramic options, metal based crowns remain a viable restorative solution. There are still PLENTY of situations when PFM or full-cast restorations are the best option.
