Brandon Trice uses a state of the art porcelain oven. He fires porcelain to make it tooth colored. Once he has the desired shade, the porcelain is vitrified in the oven to become a tooth. A computer component in the equipment automates and controls this process. The use of computers has changed – and improved – a lot of processes in dental labs.
Brandon also uses a surveyor to help build a removable prosthesis. At the same station the microscope is used by the techs to check the quality of the restorations made in our lab. Brandon classify the lab as a “Boutique Lab,” adding that with a limited amount of space and personnel this innovative dental lab provides a full range of services.
