About us

Master ceramist Norio Furuta immigrated to Australia in 1996, where he worked in three high end Brisbane dental laboratories before successfully establishing Live Ceramics Dental Laboratory in 2005 on the Gold Coast. In 2012, Live Ceramics began operations as an independent dental laboratory from within the clinic of specialist Prosthodontist Dr. Mark Gervais.

In 2020, due to the increasing demand for cases from Prosthodontists and dentists with a passion for high-end natural aesthetics, Live Ceramics relocated to a new, state-of-the-art office in the Southport Central Building.

Through our mastery of the most advanced technologies and our unparalleled workmanship, we pride ourselves on consistently producing excellent results for our clinical partners: from simple single unit posteriors, to the most challenging polychromatic central incisor matching.

We are extremely appreciative to each and every one of the dentists who have worked alongside us in our mission to provide the finest quality dental restorations for our patients.

I, Norio Furuta, will continue developing relationships with all dentists and technicians in order to share technical knowledge and skills. Through this growth and collaboration with our trusted and talented colleagues, my goal is to create the most reputable dental aesthetic group in Australia.
