Crown & Bridge


K-Fast is a one, two or three day crown service. The K-Fast crown is ideal for the patient that does not want to wait the typical seven to ten days for their restoration to be processed.

To start a K-Fast crown just call Kaylor Dental Lab., Inc. at 316-943-3226 or 1-800-657-2549 to schedule your case

The K-Fast crown can be a single unit up to a six unit bridge.

  • One Day K-Fast porcelain to NBF metal
  • One Day K-Fast full cast
  • Two Day K-Fast porcelain to NBF metal
  • Two Day K-Fast full cast
  • Three Day K-Fast porcelain to NBF metal
  • Three Day K-Fast full cast

The Three Day K-Fast crown is perfect for crown under partial restorations for an additional fee.

Overnight shipping is available for an additional fee.

IPS E-Max®

Lithium disilicate glass-ceramic block for the CAD/CAM technique

The Material

The IPS e.max CAD blocks are made of lithium disilicate. The characteristic and striking colors of the blocks range from white and blue to bluish-grey. The color is the result of the composition of the glass ceramic.

Thanks to an innovative manufacturing process, IPS e.max CAD features an impressive homogeneity and can be easily processed using the inLab or Everest system. The strength of the material in the pre-crystal «blue» phase can be compared with that of other glass ceramics currently available on the market.

After the blocks have been milled, the material undergoes a crystallization process in the P200 or EP 600 Combi furnace. The crystallization process results in a change of structure, which imparts the glass-ceramic with a strength of 360 MPa and the actual optical properties, such as shade, translucency and brightness.

The tooth-shaded IPS e.max CAD frameworks form the ideal basis for the fabrication of aesthetic crowns and anterior bridges, which are completed with the optimally coordinated veneering ceramic IPS e.max Ceram.

The Highlights

  • Efficient, economical processing due to easy grinding properties
  • High final strength of 360 MPa
  • Easy and fast crystallization (850 °C, 30 minutes)
  • Crystallization without shrinkage and complex infiltration processes
  • Lifelike and translucent aesthetics
  • Can be processed using 2 CAD/CAM systems: inLab (Sirona) and Everest (KaVo)

Zirconium oxide block for the CAD/CAM technique

The Material

IPS e.max ZirCAD blocks are made of yttrium oxide-stabilized zirconium oxide. In the partially sintered, «chalk-like» state, IPS e.max ZirCAD can be easily milled in the inLab (Sirona) unit. The milling process is conducted by enlarging the framework by 20 %.

During the subsequent controlled sintering process in the Sintramat high-temperature furnace, the frameworks shrink to their final size and are imparted with the high fracture strength and high fracture toughness.

With its outstanding strength, IPS e.max ZirCAD thus also fulfils clinical requirements related to masticatory forces, particularly in the posterior region.

A specially designed fluorescent zircon liner provides an optimum bond and is used to apply the basic shade on the frameworks. Subsequently, IPS e.max ZirPress is pressed in a fully or partially anatomical manner onto the crown copings and bridge frameworks or IPS e.max Ceram layering ceramic is used to apply the veneers.

The Highlights

  • Extended range of indications thanks to the outstanding strength of 900 MPa and high fracture toughness
  • Optimum bond and application of the basic shade with the specially developed IPS e.max Ceram ZirLiner
  • Highly aesthetic fluorapatite glass-ceramic ingot IPS e.max ZirPress for efficient use in the presson technique
  • Conventional cementation


Facial Enamel Reduction

0.6 mm depth cuts are made to establish a uniform preparation and porcelain


Uniform Facial Preparation

A medium grit rounded diamond bur is used to remove a uniform thickness of facial enamel by joining the depth-cut groves


Uniform Facial Preparation

The depth of the grooves are joined in three planes by angling the diamond bur to the corresponding gingival, middle, or incisal plane of the tooth.


Chamfer Margins

Correct preparation of the chamfer margins interproximally allow the appropriate bulk of porcelain.


Interproximal Extention

Using the same diamond bur, the interproximal preparation is extended from the gingival chamfer into the proximal space.


Incisal Preparation

The diamond bur is angled to bevel back the incisal edge.


Linqual Reduction to Increase Length

The diamond bur is angled to eliminate undercuts and establish a deep chamfer on the lingual aspect of the preparation to ensure a passive fit. The incisal should be rounded. Avoid sharp line angles.
