Prior to initiating dental restoration work in your mouth our laboratory carries out several steps:
When fabricating the dental restoration, the concept for the restoration is designed in the laboratory prior to initiating work in your mouth. By the time your teeth are prepared, the work for the provisional restorations has already been initiated. After preparing the teeth and making an impression, the impression is examined under microscopes in the laboratory prior to finishing the treatment.
The models of your teeth are then mounted on an articulator, a machine that mimics your bite and the movement of your jaws. The restorations are then created and fitted under microscopes in a form to fit perfectly to your bite and jaw movement.
Using incremental bits of porcelain powders, each ceramic restoration is created to mimic the color and light reflectance of a natural tooth. Some aspects of our cases may be accomplished by German trained dental technicians outside our office.
At the insertion appointment, final modification of color and shape of all restorations may be done while you are in the chair. This allows us to match your teeth perfectly while you are seated.
