ZR Picasso / York Dental Lab
Benjamin Franford & Kathleen Ives & Vinni Abate
Tell us about your business.We started York Dental Laboratory because we wanted to provide a better quality product than what we were finding on the market. We decided we wanted to bring to market a zirconia restoration that was unmatched in strength, esthetics and usability. After 4 years of R&D we came up with ZR Picasso. ZR Picasso at its base is milled from the highest grade zirconium on the market today. Using a cutting edge 5-axis milling machine, we create unmatched tooth anatomy from our one of a kind custom built anatomical library. This anatomical library is exclusive to York Dental Lab and ZR Picasso. ZR Picasso is completely fabricated from start to finish here in the US at York Dental Lab to provide us with the utmost control over design, fabrication and quality control. Our goal is to continue leading & evolving here in the USA and grow our product line up as well as client base.
What makes your business stand out?In these times we have found that other large dental labs continue to outsource a large portion, if not all, of their work. We pride ourselves on providing quality products created for Americans by Americans.
