Lab Artistry in Fort Worth, TX

The Lab Technician is the artist in cosmetic dentistry. His skill and artistic ability play a very important role in the appearance and function of the final result. Most cosmetic dentistry patients do not realize the amount of color and characterization that goes into creating a natural looking tooth. Each tooth has a special chewing function in the mouth that must be replicated accurately. Communication with the lab technician ensures these subtle nuances are met and our cosmetic patients’ expectations are met.

The most challenging case is the single unit crown in the front area of the mouth. In order to match the teeth, we send our cosmetic dentistry patients to the laboratory for a custom shade. This will enable the lab technician to see, up close and personal, all the many shades of color in the teeth. Without this visit, the lab cannot possible duplicate the colors at the level necessary for a natural appearance.
