The diagnostic wax-up is often the most important tool for selling treatment, case presentation, and case planning. At the Dental Laboratory Group, we have a group of highly skilled technicians who are able to create detailed, fully functional diagnostic wax ups that you can use to assure function and esthetics for your case. The unrivaled communication that the diagnostic wax-up is able to provide dramatically increases case acceptance. In this technique, the dental lab removes the desired amount of tooth structure from the preoperative model and the restoration is waxed onto the patient’s prepped teeth. Along with a diagnostic wax-up it is also suggested to request a lab putty to place over the wax up to mimic the exact contour /shape of the teeth for temporaries to be fabricated.
With our PMMA/wire re-enforced temporaries, you can provide your patients with a beautiful smile as soon as you prepare their teeth. Your patients no longer need to postpone treatment for fear their temporaries will look unnatural. Send us your impression and preoperative model, and we will do the rest. After preparation, you simply reline and cement the temporaries in the mouth. This provisional restoration is recommended by periodontists for patients who will undergo tissue therapy, and is ideally indicated for larger cases when you wish to obtain patient acceptance prior to prescribing the final restoration. In these cases, you can take an impression of the temporaries so that the laboratory can duplicate the dimensions and morphology in the final ceramic restoration. Our PMMA Provisionals offer durability and esthetics for a temporary restorative solution. This restoration is milled out of a dense block of PMMA, which provides the provisional with natural esthetics due to the material’s translucency. Available in 16 VITA® classical and bleached shades in both monocolor and multilayer options.
Our custom implant abutments are available in titanium and zirconia both available as screw retained or cement retained to fit your patients’ individual needs. All of our custom implant abutments are precisely milled using CAD/CAM technology to facilitate a natural-looking emergence and optimize soft-tissue contours and crown esthetics. This precise interface also ensures comfortable delivery of the final restoration and excellent gingival health. Our implant abutments are compatible with most popular implant systems and are competitively priced. Our implant department is focused on creating superior implant attachments. Whether you need a single restoration or a full mouth case, consider implants as a viable and practical option. A “screwmentable” is a hybrid of a cement-retained crown with a screw access hole for retrievability and an abutment. The crown is cemented to the abutment extra-orally, creating a single-piece restoration. Screwmentables are usually custom abutments due to angulation and exit of the abutment screw. We work with several manufacturers in order to ensure you are using the best implant system for your specific case. Our technicians undergo substantial training and are up to date on the various implant systems and latest technology to maintain the quality restorations you would expect from the Dental Laboratory Group, the largest milling center in the northeast!
Dental Laboratory Group can fabricate surgical stents to facilitate implant placement in respect to position and angulations. A successful implant restoration is dependent on proper position. Correct implant placement is more predictable when a surgical stent is used.
Flexible partials allow you to offer your patients a strong partial without metal clasps. This flexible resin system is stronger, more stain resistant, and less likely to fracture than similar systems in the past. These flexible partials are processed using an injection system that insures great accuracy. Being a thermo-plastic material that has great adjustment characteristics, and can have clear clasping, it provides your patients with a strong, adjustable, and flexible partial.
Acrylic Partial Denture
These removable partials are constructed almost entirely out of acrylic, and include wrought wire clasps to hold the prosthesis in place. They are designed for patients who have one or more missing teeth but are not fully edentulous, and are made by a press pack method with Lucitone 199 acrylic and Artic teeth by Kulzer.

Full dentures incorporate the very best craftsmanship that our talented technicians have to offer. When maximum aesthetics are required, let us deliver a denture that has meticulous festooning and stippling, anatomical palate and muscle tone, and lifelike tissue toning. Premium teeth are available for higher aesthetics. Industry standard, Lucitone 199 is the premium choice for both tissue and implant-supported full and partial dentures, offering outstanding aesthetics, high impact resistance and superb flexural strength. Excellent aesthetics are paired with balanced translucency and lifelike vein simulation. Shade choices are original, light, light reddish-pink and dark pink gum color.
The future is digital, and this includes denture construction. At the Dental Laboratory Group we’ve been working hard over the past several years to develop our own method for designing and fabricating digital dentures using the most advanced software and materials. The result is an excellent fitting appliance with outstanding aesthetics, and a workflow that integrates with digital technology.
Metal Partial Frameworks
This premium cobalt-chrome partial denture alloy maintains a high luster and will not tarnish or corrode. This alloy is also nickel- and beryllium-free, resulting in a biocompatible appliance for the patient. Metal partial framework can be designed in many different ways to create the most retention for a patient. Partial framework is made out of chrome cobalt for durability and is a sustainable material. We design our frameworks to fit the specific needs of every patient. Your patients will be highly satisfied with its excellent fit, function, and longevity that is not found in competing restorative partials.
A precision attachment denture is a kind of partial framework that contains precision attachment(s) to lock the denture onto a fixed restoration. Precision attachment dentures are made up of two components. The ‘male’ part is fixed to the fixed and the corresponding ‘female’ section is incorporated into the partial denture interlocking them together.
Hybrid Partial Frameworks
Hybrid partial frameworks are the same in material as metal partial frameworks but instead of metal clasping, they are fabricated with flexi clasps around anterior teeth. The flexi clasp is adhered to the metal partial framework to mimic gum shading. Shade choices are original, light, light reddish-pink and dark gum color. Clasping is also available in tooth colored clasps.
Flexi Nesbit/Acrylic Flipper
Flexi nesbits and acrylic flippers are used for 1-3 teeth replacement and the shade choices are original, light, and dark meharry. Flexi nesbits are all flexi material and flexi clasping. Acrylic flippers are fabricated from acrylic resin & wrought wire clasps. Flexi nesbits and acrylic flippers are used temporarily most of the time before implant placement.

Dental Bar Over Denture
Fixed-Removable restorations are implant-retained. While they can be removed by the patient for hygiene, they feel fixed in the mouth to the patient. They can provide proper lip support. Types of attachments include locator abutments, bar, clip or ball type attachments. Each type of attachment provides varying levels of fixture. Bars are fabricated of titanium or cobalt-chrome using CAD/CAM methods, and connect to the implants with screws. Protocol for this restoration follows traditional denture protocol. For strength and durability, the restorations may have a metal framework incorporated in the denture. Bar shapes come in many different profiles. Pricing is determined by the number of implants and the type of bar profile. Please call to discuss treatment planning options for this type of restoration.
All-on-Four Zirconia Prettau Restorations
Prettau Zircona is the material of choice for frequently occurring problems like reduced available space bruxism or ceramic chipping. If offers a functional and at the same time aesthetical solution. This highly biocompatible and no-porous material distinguishes itself through its extremely high translucency and perfectly natural appearance. Due to these characteristics and if used in conjunction with our special coloring technique, these aesthetic expectations can be met with the Prettau Zirconia All-on-4/6. Hybrid permanent restorations can also be milled from monolithic zirconia. Like the conventional Hybrid, it is secured to the implants with screws. The All-Zirconia restoration offers increased durability by eliminating issues associated with veneered porcelain, acrylic teeth and acrylic bases. Full Zirconia Bridges can be as short as 3 units up to a full arch restoration.
Having a beautiful smile may be even easier than you think. Many people achieve the look they’ve been dreaming of with our simple “bleaching” procedure. Bleaching stents are ideal to use in situations where a solution is needed to improve heavy staining. This popular procedure that is recognized as non-invasive way to improve esthetics can be done at home. A thin (0.035) vinyl material that is vacuum formed over either an upper or lower arch. A light cured block-out material is applied to the buccal surface of the model and acts as a reservoir for the fluoride or bleaching solution.
Custom bite splints and night guards that are made to your occlusal plane specifications on upper or lower models are very important to those who suffer from heavy bruxism. Thanks to research and developments night guards can be solution to those migraines and headaches. Many don’t realize that grinding and clenching the jaw can attribute to jaw pain and headaches. There are a couple options for night guards that can protect and help maintain teeth healthy. Thermoformed soft, hard or semi-hard materials are used for the fabrication of night guards. Night guards are designed for moderate to severe teeth grinding / bruxism. Made of a hard acrylic outside for durability with soft inside for comfort is the most popular choice.
