What is a dental lab?

Dental laboratories manufacture and customize dental products and restorations. These typically include dental crowns, bridges, veneers, dentures, inlays, onlays, and more. Dental labs also manufacture products like orthodontic appliances and splints. If you need a custom dental restoration, it will be made at a dental laboratory by a certified laboratory technician. Dental laboratory technicians have special training in creating and customizing dental products according to your dentist’s specifications for optimal results.

We are pleased to have an on-site dental laboratory at Oradent Associates, where we are able to create and customize most dental restorations and products you may need.

What are the benefits of having an on-site dental lab?

Our on-site dental laboratory offers us several advantages. First, we are typically able to complete your dental appliances and restorations in a shorter period of time because they are made on-site. This reduces the time usually required to send the orders to the lab and the completed product back to our office from the lab. Our on-site dental lab also means that your dental restoration will be of the highest possible quality and will be made from the best available materials. In addition, we can complete any repairs or fixes in a shorter period of time thanks to our on-site lab.
