Products & Services

Crowns & Bridges

Free Shade Consultations

Studio 12 provides free shade taking services for all cases involving ceramics to ensure an optimum aesthetic result. This gives our ceramists the opportunity to discuss desired results directly with the patient, which reduces the number of necessary chairside adjustments. Shade appointments can be organised by contacting Studio 12 directly, or alternatively, we can help you arrange a mutually convenient time.
