The Benefits of an In-house Dental Laboratory
We are able to cut the costs and timing associated with outside dental laboratory work, and pass that value and convenience on to you. Instead of waiting on a laboratory that serves multiple dentists, our in-house lab allows us to immediately get to work on your dental restorations. We do not have to wait for our orders to be completed after others, or wait for a shipment to bring you your restorations. We are also able to provide more affordable prostheses because we determine the entire cost of your treatment. There is no need to negotiate the price of your restorations with an outside provider.
We value your smile and your time, and we proudly use our in-house laboratory to deliver beautiful restorations quickly and efficiently.
Creating Your Restoration
Astoria Dental Group has highly-trained on-site ceramists who fabricate all of our restorations. These professionals are able to create advanced, precise prostheses for a comfortable fit, and work closely with our doctors to understand your specific dental needs. Our ceramists are also experienced creating highly artistic restorations that perfectly match the shade, shape, and symmetry of your gums and teeth. We can make your customized restoration out of porcelain, porcelain fused to metal, and zirconia. These materials offer a variety of individual benefits, and your doctor will discuss what these materials can offer for your specific restoration during your consultation.
After taking detailed measurements and choosing a restoration material, our doctors will send your order to the laboratory. Our ceramists begin work immediately, and keep us informed of their progress. Our doctors can also regularly inspect their work, ensuring your restoration matches your exact specifications. If we discover any changes need to be made before we can properly place your restoration, our ceramists are on-hand to complete them as quickly as possible.
Technology We Use in the Lab
Our practice uses state-of-the-art technology to work more quickly and efficiently. With SmilePix, our doctors can digitally enhance a portrait of your current smile with computer smile imaging. This technology renders an image with virtual porcelain veneers, porcelain crowns, full smile makeovers, and many other treatments. You are able to see the results you can achieve with the help of our lab, make an informed decision, and allow our ceramists to begin work immediately.
SIMPLANT® digital scan and design for dental implants and restorations.
We are also proud to offer one-day dental implants to our patients. Astoria Dental Group is one of very few practices to use the SIMPLANT® system, allowing us to install long-lasting dental implants during just one visit. Our in-house dental laboratory uses the advanced scans we take to create an immediate restoration, allowing us to both create and secure dental implants faster than a large majority of other practices.
We value your smile and your time, and we proudly use our in-house laboratory to deliver beautiful restorations quickly and efficiently. To learn more about how our in-house dental laboratory can conveniently restore the health, comfort, and aesthetics of your smile, contact us today.
