IPS e.max Press by Klausz Dental Laboratories

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.

Available in Various Degrees of Translucency
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.

Conventional or Adhesive Bonding
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.

In order to provide our clients with the most accurate shade matching system, we have chosen the Vitapan 3D Master Shade System. The Vitapan system provides highly accurate matching whether matching a bridge, a partial denture or a single central. The Vitapan system is the only shade guide in the world that takes into consideration all three elements of color and creates a systematic, objective, and simple method for communicating the shade to our lab.

Characteristics
Proper shade communication is easier than you think when armed with the correct knowledge and tools. Consider all three elements of color when applied to a tooth; is it light in value, yellowish or reddish in hue or light in chroma? Now imagine a shade guide with an accompanying PFM and an all-ceramic system of precisely shade matched restorative materials that gives you proper and complete control over these elements. That's exactly what VITA has done.
Whether matching a bridge, partial denture or the ever-challenging single central, VITA now provides the only shade guide in the world that takes into consideration all three elements of color and creates a systematic, objective, and simple method for communicating the shade to our lab. It's called the VITAPAN 3D-MASTER Shade System.
There are many shades in the new VITAPAN 3D-MASTER guide that can't be accurately matched with standard vita shaded porcelains. Make sure you are receiving a "Certificate of Authenticity" with your restorations, so you can be sure you are getting true VITAPAN 3D-MASTER shades.
Klausz Dental Labs are an authentic VITAPAN 3D-MASTER Laboratory.

ULTRA THIN PORCELAIN VENEERS
For doctors and patients who expect the finest in aesthetic restorations

Cosmetic dentistry has made great strides since Dr. Charles Pinius first developed porcelain veneers in 1938.  Today a patient seeking cosmetic procedures often demands results that are long lasting, natural in appearance and compatible with existing structures.  Research and development of new materials enable us to meet these demands.

With the use of today’s specially formulated veneering porcelains, ultra thin veneers of 0.3mm to 0.6mm can be made with less tooth reduction, thus decreasing the probability of sensitivity.  Nature creates a tooth through a series of layers.  Our Ultra Thin Veneers are developed in the same way.  Our technicians apply a series of the finest porcelain powders to match the patient’s shade of choice.  Through this process, the technician builds chroma, value, and hues internally, the way nature meant them to.

Translucent masking dentins enhance the ability to hide badly discoloured teeth, while providing the same translucency, depth of colour and fluorescence inherent in natural teeth.

Add to this our Exclusive Bite Equilibration Technique and you’re sure to receive restorations of the highest quality. Equilibration is essential to establish the correct occlusion.  It involves eliminating incline interferences, and doing away with adjustments that lead to wasting valuable chair time.

 

 

Your patients expect you to provide the finest aesthetic restorations available. Now with Ultra Thin Veneers, you can offer them the world’s most beautiful smile. We’re eager to be a partner to your success, and are able to provide you with information on case design, preparation, and bonding techniques.

At Klausz Dental Laboratories, we take great pride in being able to provide our clients with the best dental materials science has to offer.  Staying current - just another way we are working harder and smarter for your practice.

The Next Generation of Beautiful Smiles
Premise Indirect with Biomimetic Nanotechnology

Whether a dentist, a dental technician, or a patient, your needs are the same.  You want a durable restoration that performs well both functionally and esthetically.  The “next generation” of indirect composites, Premise Indirect, incorporates advanced nanoparticle and submicron filler technology to create the most significant development in composite in the last twelve years, surpassing previous belleGlass NG benchmarks and setting new industry standards for polish, shine, and wear.

Biomimetic refers to human-made processes, substances, devices, or systems that imitate nature.  The art and science of designing and building biomimetic apparatus is called biomimetics. Nanotechnology involves the creation and manipulation of complex structures on the scale of nanometers – something organisms have done for about 3.8 billion years. Now, Kerr has incorporated these two processes in the creation of their latest composite restorative material, Premise Indirect.
Natural Look. The opalescent appearance more closely replicates enamel like no other composite-based material.
Natural Wear. Premise Indirect restorations closely match natural dentition in wear characteristics.
High Performance. Trimodal curing (light, heat, and pressure) achieves over 98% material conversion, as compared with 60-70% achieved with light cure-only materials.
Long-Lasting Smooth Polish. Particle sizes are below the wavelength of visible light, improving wear and delivering a surface that becomes smoother and shinier with time.
Proven History. Fifteen years of positive clinical studies, and tens of thousands of successful restorations placed since 1996.
Research.The combination of large prepolymerized filler (PPF) particles, 0.4 micron structural filler and small silica nanoparticles allows higher filler loading, improved physical properties, optimal handling, higher surface gloss, and reduced polymerization shrinkage.

At Kerr, they are proud of their commitment to the dental industry.  By not only constantly being at the forefront of material sciences, they are equally proud of their commitment to provide you with high quality patient information brochures that highlight the many benefits that their products provide.

Zirlux FC - Full Contour Zirconia
Aesthetics for Challenging Cases

Regardless of the clinical situation, today’s patients demand an aesthetic restorative outcome that match or even look better than their natural teeth. Traditionally, this demand has been met by the use of all-ceramic or layered restorations. However, many patients present with signs of bruxism or exhibit worn dentition that does not allow for the use of traditional ceramic restorative options.

In the past, the solution for the most challenging of cases was full metal or metal occlusal restorations.

Today’s solution is Zirlux FC full contour zirconia.

  • Low Wear to Opposing Dentition
  • Higher Translucency than Traditional Zirconia
  • Conventional Cementation Indicated
  • Extremely Strong and Resistant to Fracture/Chipping
  • Conservative Preparations
  • 0.5mm minimum thickness
  • Feather edge preparations

Zirlux FC brings beautiful aesthetics to the strength of full contour zirconia

Bringing you the latest in material science is just another way we’re working harder and smarter for your practice!

“Temporization - The first steps to patient satisfaction”


Most patients today have genuine concerns about aesthetics and function prior to proceeding with many forms of cosmetic dentistry. There are many options to help guide you and your patients to a desirable result, such as Cosmetic Digital Imaging or Diagnostic Wax-Ups (both services are available through our laboratory). Before you spend valuable time and money on final restorations, consider the many benefits to temporary restorations. These types of restorations allow an inexpensive view to the future where tooth shape, size and embrasure space can be determined; as well, possible phonetic consideration can be diagnosed. Utilizing today’s advanced light curing materials, gives us the benefits of greater translucency and shade matching and for those occasions when greater emphasis is placed on colour, the advance of light cured stains can be used. Judge for yourself the many benefits of the latest in laboratory produced temporary restorations.

Which would you choose?
A or B

*Should we place only 5 teeth instead of the usual 6?

*How wide should the gingival embrasures be?

*Would a square, tapering or ovoid mould be more appropriate?

*Should the midline coincide with the opposing arch?

*How much overbite and overjet would be appropriate
