Implant Abutments, Crowns and Bridges

EP Laboratory provides a broad range of implant services. Diagnostic services include CT scans, surgical and x-ray stents, diagnostic wax ups and case planning with Dr. Bruce J. Crispin (Board Certified Prosthodontist) In addition, EP laboratory can fabricate the appropriate abutment type to meet your needs and a broad range of prosthetic alternatives.

Abutment Choices:

  • Metal custom abutments can be used under ceramometal or posterior restorations. Ti abutments are milled using the latest CAD/CAM technology


  • Ceramometal custom abutments are used under all ceramic restorations when optimal esthetic results are required. These are a great alternative to Zr custom abutments because they can be made in many colors, the ceramic is bonded to the metal abutment thus they are stronger that cemented Zr custom abutments.
