Artech Ceramics' state of the art laboratory is designed to produce small volumes of high quality, Australian-made crown and bridgework and it is from here that we can offer a full range of crown and bridge products including zirconia, emax , and porcelain fused to metal.
Artech's owner and head ceramist, Sophie Lewis, is a fully qualified Dental Ceramist/Technician with 28 years experience in dental technology.
She commenced her apprenticeship in 1992 at Omega Ceramics in Melbourne and it was there through watching and learning from world renowned ceramist Russell Young that she was inspired to devote her working life to the art of dental technology.
Over the last two decades she has worked consistently in crown and bridge labs both large and small and has had the opportunity to work with such respected technicians as Peter Vryonis (inventor of the porcelain margin), Jurgen Braunwarth (designer of the KISS ceramic for DeguDent) and master ceramist, Yugo Hatai, amongst others.
Sophie has a vast knowledge of all aspects of crown and bridge work, specializing in metal-free e.max and zirconia applications. She is continually keeping up to date with the latest industry developments through ongoing dental education, attending various Ivoclar Vivadent, 3M and Vita courses and was recently asked to produce ceramic work to be used as demonstration models for Nobel Biocare.
At Artech Ceramics it's the combination of state of the art equipment, best materials and latest techniques that guarantee exceptional quality restorations. We only use the highest quality materials approved and regulated by the Therapeutic Goods Administration.
