Behind the Scenes at a Dental Laboratory
en you visit the dentist, you probably don't think about the work that goes on behind the scenes in the dental laboratory. But the truth is, the work of dental technicians is essential to the success of your dental treatment.
Dental laboratories are where dental technicians create custom-made dental restorations, such as crowns, bridges, and dentures. These restorations are made to fit your mouth exactly, ensuring a comfortable and natural-looking result.
The process of creating a dental restoration in a laboratory typically involves several steps. First, the dentist takes impressions of your teeth, which are used to create a model of your mouth. This model is then used by the dental technician to create a custom-made restoration that will fit your mouth perfectly.
Next, the dental technician uses a variety of tools and materials to create the restoration. This can include a variety of ceramics, metals, and other materials, depending on the specific needs of the patient. The technician will carefully craft the restoration, paying close attention to details such as the shape, size, and color of the restoration, to ensure a natural-looking result.
Once the restoration is complete, it is sent back to the dentist, who will place it in the patient's mouth. The dentist will make any necessary adjustments to ensure a comfortable and natural-looking fit.
