Our On-Site Dental Laboratory Enhances Patient Experience
Modern dental technologies bring increased precision, comfort and convenience to dental treatments. Drs. Clifford Degel and Carmen Every-Degel are dedicated to providing patients with cutting-edge dental care. At our Astoria, NY, dental practice, we are able to offer patients the benefits of our advanced, on-site dental laboratory, providing same-day service for many cosmetic and restorative dentistry procedures. Our lab utilizes the very latest dental technologies to provide the most customized restorations and enhance your treatment experience.
Benefits of Our In-House Lab
Not long ago, custom dental fabrications, such as dental crowns and other prosthetics, had to be sent out to an off-site dental laboratory. This meant an extended waiting period for patients, who were often forced to rely on less stable temporary restorations for weeks at a time. In addition, if any issues with the restoration became apparent, dentists were often unable to correct fit or appearance without sending the restoration back to the off-site lab.
Our practice takes advantage of new, digital technology that enables on-site fabrication processes. For the benefit of our patients, Astoria Dental Group uses a computerized, on-site dental lab staffed with a highly-trained technician. This arrangement allows patients to receive timely dental restorations that meet their needs. We can often provide same-day or next-day treatment, including our Teeth Tomorrow® services, which allow patients to receive a full implant-supported arch the day of or after dental implants surgery. Our doctors are also able to oversee the creation of your restoration, ensuring better aesthetics. We can make all adjustments on-site as well, helping you to achieve a better fit and more stable smile.
Our laboratory takes advantage of advanced CAD/CAM (computer-aided design and computer-aided manufacturing) technology, which allows for precise, digital design and fabrication. The process starts with digital x-rays and tomographic imaging, providing the Drs. Degel and Every-Degel with highly detailed 3-D images of your entire oral structure. These scans allows the doctors to design the most customized restorations possible.
Our dentists and staff are dedicated to consistently meeting and exceeding expectations for our patients. You can always expect a comfortable, state-of-the-art dental experience at our family practice office in Astoria.
Our ceramics technician is often present in the treatment room to collaborate with the doctor, ensuring a seamless fabrication and shade-matching process. The technology provides for superior accuracy, fit, and aesthetics, so patients can expect a premium quality outcome.
