Custom Dental Lab

At the office of Dr James A Miller, we use a custom full service crown, veneer, and bridge lab located next door. Unlike most dental offices our restorations are not sent out to a large commercial laboratories nor are  digitally created (“crowns in a day”) by a  dental assistant.  Instead  we use a private lab located next door which allows Dr. Miller to coordinate with the lab and ceramist technician.  This coordination ensures each restoration is custom designed has a superior fit and is seamlessly color matched to a patient’s natural tooth shade.
As a ceramist and dental lab technician, with over 20 years experience Donnas began creating custom restorations for Dr. Miller in 2013. Donna creates “artful” custom restorations for each  patient but only after Dr. Miller checks for accuracy.  Dr. Miller makes needed adjustments prior to the fabrication which ensures the restoration has a superior functional fit and meets a patient’s esthetic needs. 

The goal of custom esthetic restorations is to continually improve, correct, and perfect a patient’s smile esthetics, bite, and function. Our restoration models are fabricated on dental articulators (jaw movement simulators). Our patients’ restorations are beautiful, handcrafted porcelain pieces meticulously custom designed.
