Crowns & Bridges

Layered e.Max or Zirconia

At Schack Dental, we provide a naturally looking finish for your crowns and bridges with layered e. Max or Zirconia. Our process of layering is achieved by creating a cutback restoration, then layering porcelain to provide natural looking aesthetic and strength.

Monolithic e.Max or Zirconia

Monolithic e. Max is a strong restoration that does not include a cutback for layering of porcelain. These restorations are custom stained to provide a natural colour and translucency and can be fixed using conventional cement. The improved aesthetic characteristics make it an excellent choice for both appearance and strength.

Aesthetic Zirconia

Aesthetic zirconia provides strength and a natural finish as it balances both layered and monolithic materials. These restorations are ideal for anterior or posterior placements.

Porcelain Fused to Metals

Porcelain Fused to Metals (PFMs) offer a long-term, functional restoration in areas that require sufficient room to layer ceramic. PFMs are a standard restorative technique that can utilize various types of alloy. Depending on the type, these restorations will vary in price and performance.

Full Gold

Full gold is a highly malleable material that allows for a exceptionally accurate crown-to-tooth fit. Full gold provides the same strength as natural enamel, which protects opposing teeth from being worn down. These restorations are ideal for posterior placements.


Veneers are thin tooth coverings that attach to the front part of a patient’s teeth used to re-create the natural look of teeth, while also providing strength and resilience comparable to natural tooth enamel.

They are typically made of porcelain or composite resin. Veneers are an ideal option for achieving a quick and beautiful, straight, white smile. This treatment is perfect for people with teeth that are stained, chipped or have gaps.

Porcelain veneers are long-lasting and strong option. They do not stain or change colour. On average, porcelain veneers take a minimum of two dental visits to apply while composite resin veneers are often completed in one visit.


The diagnostic wax-up takes the treatment plan from conception to a full-scale model, resulting in a visual communication tool for all the treatment partners. This includes the patient, dentist and lab technician. The wax-up is an important stage of the restoration process as it not only helps the dentist and technician visualize the treatment plan, but allows the patient to see how their concerns can be addressed.

Wax-ups are done by hand or digitally. Then are printed digitally using a 3D printer. The Patient can take the 3D print of their wax up home.
