Dental Lab Materials
Whether seeing a patient for a routine prophy appointment, or providing more complex restorative, periodontal or endodontic treatment, a variety of dental materials will be a part of the workflow. From capturing an impression to placing a crown to performing cosmetic whitening, highly specialized materials are needed to complete your task. Finding the right material for your practice and the case at hand is important.
New dental materials are coming to the market at a rapid pace, so staying on top of your options is an ongoing part of practicing dentistry. Learning to properly use these materials is another key part of the process. It’s important to remember that almost all dental materials will be placed in a patient’s mouth either temporarily or permanently, so using materials according to protocols developed by the manufacturer should always be the way to go.
