Thompson Suburban Dental Lab uses the GC Initial™ IQ porcelain as our porcelain of choice to provide your patients and your practice with the best PFM available. The GC Initial crown is beautifully natural. The porcelain’s optical properties such as diffuse reflection, fluorescence, opalescence and translucency mimic those of natural teeth. Its surface can be easily polished, enabling realistic mirror reflection.
While metal-free restorations increase in popularity, a large majority of our practices still prescribe porcelain fused to metal single and bridge units. At Thompson Suburban, we are committed to stringent quality control procedures. Our goal is to guarantee that each case is designed to meet or exceed your expectations and is delivered to you exactly as you prescribed.
