Occasionally we are asked to undertake slightly unusual projects that call
for prosthetics outside the normal range of our work. Although these are a
departure from our day-to-day dental work, the same basic skills are employed,
sometimes stretching them to the limit.
If you need an unusual casting, why not contact us and see if we can make it for you?
We have documented some of our more interesting cases here. Click on the links

Daimler Engine Badge
Classic car enthusiasts often find it difficult to obtain replacement badges, particularly for rare models. When one dental surgeon needed an engine badge for his Daimler, he solved the problem by taking an impression from the badge on a friend's car. From this, we were able to create a new casting which preserves the sand-cast texture of the original component. Unlike Daimler's badges, which were manufactured in chrome-plated brass, our badge was cast in solid Biosil 'f' cobalt chrome, which should long outlast the car.
