Lab Artistry in Fort Worth, TX
Where Art Meets Science
The dental lab technician is the artist in cosmetic dentistry. Their 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 always met.
The most challenging case is a single unit crown placed in the front area of the mouth. In order to ensure that it matches the teeth, we send our cosmetic dentistry patients to the laboratory or we have the lab technician come to our office. 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 possibly duplicate the colors at the level necessary for a natural appearance.
