March/April 2012
An O.I.C. Specialty Laboratory
Occlusion - Implant - Cosmetic

We've grown into an O.I.C. Laboratory!
At Klausz Dental Laboratories, we are committed to providing our clients with a full range of services, restorations, and appliances to meet all aspects of clinical dentistry. To meet your expectations we have grown into an Occlusal-Implant-Cosmetic (O.I.C.) Laboratory.

We view the role of the dental lab as a partner to our clients, in both determining their goals and objectives and going out of our way in helping to achieve them. When we say, "Working Harder And Smarter For Your Practice!", we mean that we're finding solutions for each of our client's specific needs and challenges, whatever they may be. We consider ourselves to be an extension of your dental practice. That is the changing role of the dentist/laboratory relationship, and we believe it has led to the continued success of our clients and our laboratory.

We hope our e-Newsletters prove to be informative, educational, and beneficial. Each issue will cover different topics on materials, techniques, services and educational opportunities.
Please do not hesitate to contact us with specific questions. We look forward to working with you.

Klausz Dental Lab now offers...

e.max Press - Lithium Disilicate - Aesthetics AND Strength
Comprised of biocompatible lithium disilicate, IPS e.max Press provides the fit, form and function of a pressed ceramic with maximum aesthetic characteristics, and exceptional flexural strength at 400 MPa.

A Variety of Shades and Translucencies
IPS e.max Press ingots are available in varying degrees of translucency for maximum versatility. Ingots come in the High Translucency (HT) created for inlays, onlays and veneers, Low Translucency (LT) which is ideal for creating one-step fully anatomical restorations, Medium Opacity (MO) is intended for devitalized, slightly discolored preparations, and High Opacity (HO) is for preparations that are non-vital and severely discolored. The LT ingots are available in the 9 most popular A-D shades as well as 4 contemporary bleach shades.

Strong Enough for Conventional Cementation
Due to their high strength, the restorations can be conventionally cemented. Alternatively, they can be adhesively bonded. This provides maximum flexibility to address clinical needs.

Full Contour OR Build-up Technique
IPS e.max restorations are available in two forms. You can choose full contour that provides high strength and beautiful aesthetics as an alternative to zirconia and precious metal. For more demanding cases, we can fabricate restorations utilizing the cut-back and build-up technique. Final veneering with IPS e.max Ceram, a proprietary nano-fluorapatite layering ceramic, offers unparalleled aesthetics.

IPS e.max Press provides the ultimate in all ceramic restorations:

  • Outstanding aesthetics combined with high flexural strength
  • Exceptional wear profile on the antagonist tooth, even kinder than natural enamel
  • 5 year clinical data
  • Conventional or adhesive cementation options for clinical flexibility

We are confident that we can provide you with the high quality you have come to expect from our laboratory in this new and versatile all-ceramic restoration.

Klausz Cosmetic Consultation
More Than A Quick Colour Match

The Challenge of Shade Taking
One of the most difficult and frustrating tasks in modern aesthetic dentistry is the taking of shades, and then relating this crucial information to the lab. The challenges involved in trying to match a single central incisor can be extremely stressful.

Porcelains CAN Mimic Natural Dentition
Correct shade selection is more than just choosing the right base shade. It involves determining which incisal porcelains to use and where to place them to mimic the natural dentition. Let’s not forget about those areas of intense colours, decalcification, and staining which are next to impossible to relate.

The Klausz Solution to Difficult Shade Taking - Cosmetic Consultations
We have a solution to this daunting task. We have refined our in-lab shade taking process and integrated digital photo technology to provide our clients with what we call Cosmetic Consultations. Let one of our experienced ceramists create a detailed shade mapping while taking note of such details as: surface anatomy, translucency, and incisal characteristics.

Included - Digital Photos - Dentition and Portrait
To complement the shade selection, we take a series of digital photographs that will serve as a guide to tooth contour and individual facial characteristics. A full colour printout of the digital photos and Cosmetic Consultation form is returned to your office with the completed restoration.

Want to know more? Call us.
The next time you’re faced with the disheartening task of a difficult shade match, why not take advantage of a Cosmetic Consultation.

Just another way we try to improve on the restorations and services we provide to our clients.
