Our in-office laboratory expedites the process of creating appliances and allows us to serve you in a more efficient manner.
Our lab produces aesthetic appliances for a variety of dental procedures. These appliances include dentures, crowns, bridges and other prosthetics. After Dr. Arreola provides an impression or mold of the patient's teeth, one of our laboratory technicians creates a model of the patient's mouth using plaster molds. The technician then places the model in a device that replicates the bite and movement of the patient's jaw. This model serves as the basis for producing the required appliance(s).
Dr. Arreola and the technician then examine the model and make necessary adjustments and recommendations for each patient’s appliance. The technician uses the information from this consultation to shape, mold and cast the final appliance. The final cast duplicates the exact shape, size and color of the original tooth or teeth.
