While the main role of a dental lab is relatively straightforward, the day-to-day inner workings of a lab are complex and often require a great deal of skill, artistry, and technique on behalf of the lab technician. The purpose of a modern dental lab is to produce the tangible products (i.e. crowns, bridges, and restoration teeth) that are needed by the dentist in order to restore a patient’s oral health and smile. As a dentist, the in-house dental lab at Dr. Heath A. Lampee’s Teeth in 24 practice is primarily used to fabricate custom restorations for full mouth dental implants. Each and every patient’s oral architecture is unique, which is why a unique protocol must be taken in order to produce perfect, stunning results and a beautiful smile for every patient that walks through doors. With our state-of-the-art full mouth dental implant lab, accomplishing this goal is easier, faster, and more streamlined than ever before.
In many instances, communication between a dental practice and an off-site dental laboratory end up causing treatment delays for the patient. During the dental implant process, from a patient’s first consultation to the diagnosis, surgery, and placement of the final restoration, communication between Dr. Lampee and the dental lab is ever-present. In order to produce beautiful, functional restorations that perfectly suit the needs of each unique patient, a variety of information must be shared and communicated between the dentist and the dental lab on a daily basis. Having our lab services in-house all under one roof allows us to carry out an entire implant restoration quickly, seamlessly, and with near perfect results, every single time.
The main benefit of our in-house dental lab is that, thanks to our ability to customize and print our own PMMA provisional restorations, patients can come in for their implant surgery at Beaverton, OR practice, and in 24 hours, walk out of the office with a brand-new set of gorgeous, fully functional teeth.
As one of the most advanced 3D dental printers on the market, our in-house SprintRay machine allows for unrivaled accuracy to produce the highest level of customized provisional restorations, as well as a perfect fit and finish for each patient's unique needs.
Using our in-house milling machine, we can produce laboratory analogs that allow us to reproduce the exact position and precise connection in order to perfect the placement and fitting of the implant hardware before we reach the day of surgery.
Using cutting-edge digital technology and a state-of-the-art intraoral scanner, our in-house lab allows us to design and mill dental crowns and bridges in as little as two visits.
