Bonded Crown and Bridge

PFM (porcelain fused to metal) restorations are the most cost effective solutions for your patients. Strong, durable, light weight and are suitable in all situations including long span bridge work. All our bonded cases are made with non precious nickel free alloy. We work with all vita shades including bleach shades.

Cast and ¾ Crowns

Full-cast restorations are the standard for long-term durability of posterior crowns and are as popular today as always. All of our metals are nickel free and we can offer you a choice of 4 alloys for different cases.

  • Non-precious gold colour metal
  • Non-precious silver colour metal
  • 10s pale yellow precious alloy
  • 60% rich yellow precious alloy

You may already know that the NHS do have very specific rules for the type of alloys allowed for use, if you are unsure please contact us for advise. A common example is non-precious metal NHS crowns for practices based in England can only be made in silver coloured alloy NOT Gold.

Gold Onlay

Onlays are primarily used to strengthen posterior teeth where a chair-side procedure may not be enough. We can fabricate your patients onlays, inlays or overlays in either precious or non precious alloys from the following:

  • Non-precious gold colour metal
  • Non-precious silver colour metal
  • 10s pale yellow precious alloy
  • 60% rich yellow precious alloy

As with metal crowns the NHS dictate the alloys that are acceptable for patient’s onlays.

In the case of NHS metal onlays for practices based in England the only alloy that is acceptable is 60% precious metal.

Composite Inlay

For situations when a chair side composite filling is not an appropriate option, ask for our competitively priced composite inlays. Natural, strong and kind to opposing and adjacent teeth. We have all vita shades including bleach shades.

Smile Design

We realise that, increasingly patients are demanding higher aesthetics in their cosmetic dental procedures and here at Apple Dental Ceramics we can help make that process smoother for you. We consciously employ the golden proportions principals to every case we design to ensure aesthetic subtleties.

We can offer you advise every step of the way including diagnostic wax ups, preparation and cementation techniques.

e.max lithium disilcicate has a fabulous esthetics and translucency like no other restorative product. e.max can be used on most situations including anterior crowns, veneers, inlays, onlays and small span bridges of up to 3 units

Full Contour Zirconia

Zirconia has a long-standing reputation for quality, durability and biocompatibility. Now the Zirconia of today also has beautiful translucency, giving fantastic aesthetics. All of our Zirconia substructures are produced using CAD/CAM technology, which offers a very accurate result.

Emax Zirconia

As with a full contour zirconia case the restoration is fabricated using our state of the art scanning and milling technology. The Zirconia coping is then multi-layer veneered with e.max lithium disilicate, to give natural shading and aesthetics. The perfect combination strength and beauty. We recommend emax zirconia to be used for all long span bridges of 3 or more units, all posterior singles and also in the case of a patient with a heavy bite or if more strength is required.

Ultra-thin Veneers

Our no-prep veneers are one of the most popular smile makeover treatments we manufacture. Our ultra-thin porcelain veneers need no preparation and can be placed over existing teeth without the need to remove any of the healthy tooth substance, unlike traditional veneers.

No-prep veneers can improve the aesthetics of your patient’s teeth to eliminate diastemas, alter shade or alignment or short or small teeth and also address issues such as a ‘gummy smile’.
