quality at every step. I was especially excited about new porcelain systems’ capabilities to reproduce natural vitality. That was in 1997, and it is still my passion today. I have stayed a small lab in order to limit the number of hands that are involved in the production process. I do it this way because to me, this is not just a job. It is the responsibility of improving the patient’s quality of life.

Here it is 2020. This marks our 20th year in our present location, and the 23rd year of continuing our passion to create exceptional restorations. It has been 8 years since we first began integrating ourselves into digital production. We are very proud to have taken steps to join the Align Technology Inc. (iTero™ network) so we can process the digital scans from a dental office, and return a quality restoration, plus models milled by iTero™ to the dental office.

2017 marked an important change in lithium disilicate ceramics with the expiration of the patent held in the United States. This allowed other companies who have been researching and improving the formulation of the lithium disilicate ingots to sell their product in the U.S.. For 2 years now, I have been using the LiSi Press lithium disilicate ingots and overlay porcelain. It is a great, improved system that produces fantastic pressings.

I have been working with the MiYo® system from Jensen for finishing all the ceramic restorations I produce. This is another great system that allows me to add color and characterization to zirconia monolithic crowns, lithium disilicate pressings, and PFM restorations.

The investment in continuing education is very important to this profession. I have participated in numerous courses offered by implant manufacturers in order to expand my knowledge of the different systems available today.
