Lithium disilicate is an all ceramic material used to make natural looking teeth. It is the most aesthetic of all ceramic crowns and the material of choice for dentists and labs when it comes to a high aesthetic appearance, translucency, and comfortable fit for the patient.
Lithium disilicate is translucent in color and light in weight. Crowns and veneers can be made exceptionally thin which means less tooth is needed to be removed in order for the prostheses to fit. It is recommended for minimally invasive treatments and procedures and is an excellent choice for patients who are concerned about the materials that go into their mouths. Dental prostheses made from lithium disilicate are metal free and have little risk of causing allergic reactions.
At SeaBrook Dental Lab we offer lithium disilicate crowns at competitive pricing. Each crown is crafted by highly trained and qualified technicians using state-of-the-art technology. We are always happy to answer any questions you may have when it comes to planning out your aesthetic restorative cases and material selection.
