One of the challenges faced today for dentists is that crowns, bridges, dentures, partials and other dental appliances have to be sent off to a dental laboratory.
At Uptown Cosmetic & Implant Dentistry we offer a full-service on-site including lab, “Uptown Dental Lab & Milling Center” where our lab technicians are able to fabricate your dental restorations without having to be shipped to an outside laboratory. The latest dental digital technology is used to offer our patients the state of the art work. This allows Dr. Velasco the ability to complete every case efficiently whether it be a full mouth restoration or teeth in a day.
Dentists often struggle to ensure the correct shade of a veneer, crown, bridge and other restorations but Uptown Dental Lab & Milling Center has full ability to work with natural light and a custom shade room, allowing for you always to get the best dental restoration possible.
Zirconium crowns have quickly become the preferred material for dental crowns. Zirconium is a very strong substance that can endure wear and tear of everyday use. When looking at Zirconium crowns from an aesthetic point, it is clear and very similar to a natural tooth and reflects light the same way.
Zirconia is a very dense material that looks exactly like natural teeth with the advantage that it is extremely strong and doesn’t stain. It’s a big advantage for patients knowing that they are going to have something that is secure in their mouths, which will not break and will look fantastic year after year. Zirconium crowns can withstand the biting pressure of the front teeth as well as back teeth grinding.
The look of zirconium crowns and bridges is so close to natural teeth that it is hard to tell the difference.
Porcelain is the conventional material used for veneers offering a stronger durability and life span in the mouth than resin-based veneers. Uptown Cosmetic & Implant Dentistry now offers the latest veneer technology services, First Fit™, to allow you quicker service and less time in a dental chair. With First Fit™, we are able to insert your permanent veneers the same day we reduce your teeth for the fitting, which eliminate the need to return to our office for another visit.
At Uptown Cosmetic & Implant Dentistry, we strive to stay on the leading edge of technology to ensure our patients get the most up to date options.
