Our Mission – The Image Difference

At Image we believe very strongly that the finest aesthetic and functional quality comes from combining experience and craftsmanship with the highest standard of materials, the latest in digital technologies, and a fully collaborative approach between Clinician and Laboratory.
Our third generation Master Ceramist, Alan Abrams, personally checks every single unit leaving our lab, for every single case, every single time thus ensuring consistent, repeatable results that Doctors can depend on with every case.
Our consistency and expertise in restorative dentistry truly saves our clinicians time and helps retain and grow their patient base.

The Image Process

  • We work with our Doctors from beginning to the end of every case, minimizing any instances of remakes and greatly reducing your chair times
  • We customize each case to the Doctor’s specific instructions ensuring every construction meets the Doctor’s specific vision and is ideal for the patient’s health.
  • We provide: treatment plan consultations, diagnostic models, diagnostic functional aesthetic waxups, preparation models/preparation guides, and implant design and cost consultations.
  • All work is quality controlled by our head technician at every step of the process, thus work results are absolutely consistent, every time.

key features Our Laboratory Technologies Include:

  1. 3Shape Lab Scanners

    3Shape’s proven technologies are successfully servicing thousands of labs worldwide. New groundbreaking technologies provide revolutionary performance and productivity.

  2. Amann Girrbach Ceramill CAD/CAM Scanners

    The Ceramill Map400 stands for a high degree of operating comfort and high-resolution scan data, which are created using strip light projection. Highly sensitive 3D sensors provide a precise image of the model.

  3. State of the art milling machines (fabricate):

    Our mills are designed to cut crowns, bridges, copings, frameworks, implant abutments and more from materials such as ceramics, zirconia, alloys, resins or wax

  4. Titanium abutments

    Abutments are precisely milled using CAD/CAM technology to facilitate a natural-looking emergence and optimize soft-tissue contours and crown esthetics. This precise interface also ensures comfortable delivery of the final restoration and excellent gingival health.

  5. Zirconia Crowns

    Zirconia is a monolithic zirconia crown, bridge, screw-retained implant crown, inlay or onlay with no porcelain overlay. First launched as being “More Brawn Than Beauty,” the material was originally intended to provide a durable, more esthetic alternative to posterior metal occlusal PFMs or cast gold restorations for demanding situations like bruxers, implant restorations and areas with limited occlusal space. Now, thanks to the new BruxZir Shaded formulation, BruxZir restorations exhibit improved translucency and color similar to natural dentition, making them a restorative option in the anterior as well. Complete color penetration all the way through the restorations ensures greater shade consistency and prevents any shade changes after occlusal adjustment.

    Designed and milled using CAD/CAM technology, BruxZir Solid Zirconia is sintered for 2.5 hours at 1,580 degrees Celsius to achieve optimum strength. The final BruxZir crown or bridge is then glazed to a smooth surface

  6. Lithium Disilicate Crowns

    he IPS e.max lithium disilicate is composed of quartz, lithium dioxide, phosphoroxide, alumina, potassium oxide, and trace elements. These powders are combined to produce a glass melt. Once the proper viscosity is achieved, similar to that of honey, the glass melt is poured into a steel mold and left to cool. This glass flow process produces minimal pores or other internal defects and provides for easy quality control due to the translucent nature of the glass.
    The ingots are produced in one batch depending on the shade and size of the materials. This manufacturing process yields a shock-resistant glass ceramic due to low thermal expansion. The glass ingots are then processed using state-of-the-art CAD/CAM procedures.

  7. Sintron Crowns

    This non-precious metal revolutionises the manufacturing process, as the wax-like texture of the Ceramill Sintron blanks (CoCr blanks) allows them to be effortlessly dry milled on in-house benchtop machines such as the Ceramill Motion 2 or Ceramill Mikro. The labor-intensive and error-prone casting procedure and therefore time-consuming manual working stages are no longer required.
