About Us

Quality Ceramics was established in 1985 and became Quality Ceramics Limited in 2013. Throughout the years our company has grown in staff and technology. We have 2 Armann Girbach Milling machines in house with a 3shape scanner used for designing. Having the 5 axis milling machine available it has opened up opportunities for a range of materials that we can use to create the desired restoration.

 

Quality Ceramics Limited has always understood the importance of keeping a high standard of customer service and also a high level across all elements of the laboratory. To ensure we offer this high standard we pride ourselves in being registered with DLA, British Dental Technology, British Bite Mark and DAMAS. If you require any of the certificates regarding these registrations please contact the laboratory and we can offer emailed copies or hard copies.
