THE IMPORTANCE OF AN IN-HOUSE DENTAL LAB

When a patient is having a tooth or teeth replaced, your cosmetic dentist will send a mold and the specifications to an off-site lab for the teeth to be created.  When your brand new teeth are shipped back, the dental office will verify the quality, condition, and appearance of your new teeth.  If the patient or the dentist is not completely satisfied, the teeth are then returned to the off-site dental lab for readjustment.  This process of sending and verification can potentially prolong  a procedure for weeks.

Meet With The Lab Technician

When there is an in-house lab available, a patient can meet with the lab technician face to face and get any questions or concerns answered.  An additional advantage is that the lab technician can now see the symmetry of the patient’s face and can create better fitting dental implants or fittings. There is no need for compromise because the patient can meet with the technician, face to face, and their crowns can be adjusted “while they wait.”

Accountability

With an in-house dental laboratory, there is instant accountability on the technicians.  They take pride in their work and can produce Higher Aesthetic Quality because minute details can be immediately adjusted.
