At Island Dental Associates, our cutting-edge on-site lab facilities use computer-aided design (CAD) and computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) technology to construct dental restorations and prostheses. A combination of art and science to fabricate oral appliances for missing teeth.
The goal is to duplicate all the functional and esthetic parameters that our dentists have defined into a precise and accurate restorative solution. Employing these CAD/CAM technologies makes it possible for our dental professionals to perform complex restorations faster, more efficiently, and more accurately. This proven method allows for Predictable Results while saving time and money for our beloved patients.
Contrary to what many dental patients believe, dental crowns, bridges, implants, dentures, orthodontics, and more aren’t created on-site in most dental offices. Usually, these appliances are outsourced to a dental lab, where fabrication occurs over several days or weeks. They are then returned to the dentist’s office to be inserted. If any adjustments are needed, an office without a dental lab will have to send them back to the lab. To save on cost, some dentists may outsource the fabrication of dental appliances to foreign labs, such as those in China or Mexico, that may not be using FDA-approved materials.
Throughout the entire restorative process, from the initial free consultation, diagnosis, and treatment planning to final restoration placement, the communication routes between you, our dentists, and the laboratory technicians to provide a transparent transfer of information. It eliminates the need for scheduling – and paying for – additional appointments, which can require taking time off work, rearranging schedules, or driving to various locations.
