WOW! The world has changed. Less than 10 years ago, more than 70% of all dental restorations were porcelain fused to metal. As we start 2014, this figure has flipped. At Yes! Dental Laboratory, more than 70% of the teeth we create this year will be completely metal-free. And, full zirconia crowns are leading the way. In fact, YES! was the first dental laboratory in the United States to begin fabricating our own full zirconia restorations utilizing the Amann Girrbach Ceramill CAD/CAM System.
We reviewed and tested many systems, and Ceramill offers an unmatched combination of strength, accuracy, fit and aesthetics. Its German engineering is based on years of testing, and it is one of the few machines capable of both wet and dry milling. In addition, zirconia is a low-cost, predictable material that is 100% biocompatible.
By making this significant investment in the latest technology, Lawrence Johnson and Evan Krouse have given YES! a huge competitive advantage. Less than 10% of all dental laboratories in the United States scan, design, and mill their own full zirconia restorations. YES! is proud to be one of these elite labs. This provides our customers with more control, lower costs and faster turnaround times. There is no middle man, and there are no excuses.
In reality, this commitment is just an extension of the core philosophy that has helped YES! attracts some of the finest clinicians from across the United States as long-term customers. We believe personal relationships are at the core of our success, and we want to do everything we can to help your practice win. This commitment includes our team of technical experts that are always here to answer your case design, preparation, cementation and adjustment questions.
