Lab

The behind-the-scenes support network of restorative dentistry, Dental Laboratories design and fabricate a majority of both fixed and removable dental prostheses. Based on a prescription along with anatomical and shade information provided by a dentist, a dental laboratory technician can create an esthetic and functional replacement for a patient’s missing or damaged teeth. A wide range of specialized dental laboratory materials, supplies, equipment and technologies are used to fabricate theses crowns, bridges, implant-borne restorations, full dentures, removable partials and more. A mix of artistic skill, anatomical expertise and technological know-how, the work of a trained dental lab technician is designed to fit seamlessly into a patient’s mouth to restore both function and esthetics. While some dental lab techniques have evolved little over time, new technologies and materials are rapidly changing what a dental lab looks like, and these changes are impacting the dental laboratory products needed to operate a successful lab business. CAD/CAM systems have revolutionized the industry and have opened up new business models for a range of dental laboratories.
