Benefits of an on-site laboratory with Master Technicians

What are the benefits of our laboratory to your practice?

When you refer your patients to us for implants, All-on-4 and other complex cases, you can be totally confident in our multi-level laboratory and dental studios.

At ICDS we ensure to:

• Create a high-end revenue stream
• Guarantee best quality with all certified brands
• Give samples, so your patients can see and feel the difference to the cheap alternatives (especially for anteriors where the difference is outstanding)
• Relationship building and invaluable advice given – a second opinion
• Increase your profit-to-time ratio and increase your sales on pre-treatment whitening and aftercare/maintenance offerings

Through ICDS, you can offer your patients the highest-quality options in dentistry – crowns, veneers and dentures. Increase your market share by opening into a middle to high-end market, which gives your patients more options rather than a ‘yes’ or ‘no’ choice. We are also a great referral laboratory for complex soft tissue cases.

Our mission statement

We aim for our work to be an invisible replacement while creating brilliance in quality, structure and texture. Fitting requires colour-matching, taking impressions, and with facial pictures, age, and a description of the look required.

We have a combined experience of over 50 years. Through on-going investment in the latest technology, we always keep up with technological advancements and choose which ones to follow through research, experience and facts. Vita is at the forefront of all-ceramic technology – so that’s what we use.

Our alloy casting machine and milling machine mean we can guarantee the highest accuracy in casting and milling. Digital CAD/CAM technology is used to produce substructures and crowns, and we use the latest milling techniques and devices.

Composite and porcelain combination work greatly enhances the aesthetics of soft tissue where appropriate. All metal casting is done under vacuum using precious bio-compatible metals that are porous and stress-free. All metal bridges are split-cast and then soldered.

When complications arise, our clinicians are equipped for the following:
• Failure
• Implantitis
• Bone failure – biological, graft, augmentation
• Failure following treatment abroad – assessment recommended
