A dental laboratory produces dental restorations on the order of a dentist. Dental laboratories create dentures, partials, crowns, bridges, orthodontic appliances, or other dental restorations such as implant crowns. A dentist sends a specification (or prescription) of the dental restoration to be produced, along with an impression (mold)or digital scan of the patient’s teeth to the dental laboratory to be custom made by a dental laboratory technician.
Dental laboratory technicians are the individuals who create custom made dental restorations for dentists. They can specialize in several areas: orthodontic appliances, crowns and bridges, complete dentures, partial dentures, ceramics or implants. Each restoration the technician makes will be different and each must simulate the function of the natural teeth. But, beyond that, the technician’s great challenge is to capture and recreate both the perfection and the imperfection of natural teeth.
