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

monarch-floral 1

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.

Advanced Technology

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.

During the osseointegration process, bone cells in the jaw will begin to attach directly to the surface of the titanium posts.

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.

Treatments and Restorations

We can also create custom porcelain veneers, as well as perform quick repairs and fit adjustments, as needed.

Throughout my life, my dental journey has been difficult, painful, and has caused me a lot of anxiety. I am very happy to have found Astoria Dental Group – everyone has been so kind and have taken the time to explain everything to me thoroughly and make sure I am comfortable. Dr. Degel is absolutely wonderful. I know I’m putting my teeth in the right hands and I will soon have my dream smile!

Astoria’s finest! The team here is exceptional – a warm and welcoming staff coupled with highly professional dentists, a husband-and-wife duo who each dedicate three days a week. Their flexibility in scheduling and acceptance of various insurances make it hassle-free. I’ve been a loyal client for years, personally attended to by Dr. Carmen. She’s not only super nice but also patiently listens, possesses extensive knowledge, and most importantly, operates with utmost integrity – you can trust them without a doubt.

Absolutely the best dentist/dental group I have ever been to. Little to no wait time, they fully explain your issues and possible treatment options, and every single person front and back have been incredibly fortunate.
