  • What information is your custom abutment milling center providing you on the materials and screws?

    The goal of this is to learn from our experiences how to avoid these types of companies.

    We recently met with a custom abutment milling center- a smaller local player in southern california and ran into numerous issues regarding the source of their materials, quality control processes and their willingness to reverse engineer every implant system they could get their hands on.

    As a supplier of components we adhere to FDA guidelines and the manufacturing complies with ISO 13485-2003 quality management.

  • Debra Zerbe · President at Precision Dental Lab

    I would some feedback on porcelain to titanium.
    Does anyone know if the bond is still an issue?

  • Richard Knauf · Owner at Northern Dental Lab, LLC

    Has anyone had any experiance with porcelain fused to MILLED titanium. The research I have done has conflicting information, although most of the info is not real current. Is working with titanium technique sensitive, and what compatible porcelains are on the market? What problems have you encountered working with titanium, shade match, bond failure, technique? Thank you for your input.
