One of the challenges today for dentists is that crowns, bridges, dentures, partials and other dental appliances have to be sent off to a dental laboratory.
Uptown Cosmetic & Implant Dentistry has a full service Hi-Tech Dental Lab onsite including lab technicians allowing our doctors to complete any case efficiently, including full-mouth reconstructions, teeth in a day with fixed implant bridges, or fixed implant dentures.
For Cosmetic Dentistry, this is extremely important. Dentists often have to struggle to ensure the correct shade of a veneer, porcelain crown or bridge. Hi-Tech Dental Lab has full availability with natural light to a custom shade room, allowing for you always to get the best dental restoration possible.
And now, Dr. Velasco has added Zirconia, an advanced treatment option, to Uptown’s high-tech lab capabilities. Uptown Cosmetic and Implant Dentistry is one of the only dental implant centers in the Houston area with its own onsite zirconia lab.
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, that will not break and will look fantastic year after year.
At Uptown, the zirconia is all made in-house so we control every aspect of the fabrication starting from the base material to the end product. Here we can control the quality, and ensure a higher-grade outcome.
