Trends in Restorations: A 2-year comparison

Wed, 2014-11-19

We often don't notice the magnitude of gradual changes in the dental industry until reflecting on prior year comparisons. The graphs above represent the direction the industry is headed--we are seeing far less of the traditional cast metal and porcelain restorations and more zirconia and lithium-disilicate products. Why is this? Ease of estimating lab bills for patients (no variance in gold weight or fluctuating prices), and better esthetics with optimal translucency, strength, and exceptional durability. Give us a call for more information or send in a e.max® or LavaTM case to see for yourself!
