The Benefits of Your Dentist Having an In-Office Lab
Sometimes, patient dental care involves more than a general cleaning and examination. When that happens, you may require a dental restoration, which will require the work of a dental lab.
In some offices, the dental lab responsible for fabricating your restoration is located outside of the dental office — sometimes in a completely different city or state. But at The Dental Group, the lab is housed right inside the office, which provides several benefits for you.
Receive Your Restoration in Days, Not Weeks
When a dental lab is located outside of the office responsible for placing your restoration, it can take weeks to receive your crown or denture, which means that you may have to wear a temporary prosthetic until your permanent ones are ready.
Labs inside of a dental office are capable of producing restorations in a matter of days, which means you can start improving your smile faster. Because your treatment time is nearly cut in half, temporary restorations may not be necessary at all, and you can start to enjoy your new set of teeth sooner.
One Doctor for Your Treatment Needs
Although outside dental labs work closely with dental offices to produce the best restorations possible, there is something to be said for dentists who fabricate and place restorations under the same roof.
At The Dental Group, your treatment is monitored by the same caring staff from start to finish. From your initial diagnosis to securing your restoration, the procedure is performed by the same staff, who will understand every detail of your treatment. When you’re able to build a close relationship with your dentist, you can anticipate the best result.
Faster Treatments Means Faster Results
With an in-house dental lab, you can receive your restorations in a matter of days, which means that you can expect to start enjoying your results sooner. Shorter treatment times mean faster results, allowing you to spend more time outside of the operatory and more time doing the things you love.
