COVID-19 UPDATE: Dentek, Inc. Dental Laboratory is fully operational at this time.

We strive to be the best quality and best priced dental lab in the United States.

Highest Quality Materials:

Only the highest quality materials are used in every restoration (supplied to us by companies like Ceramco, Ney, Dentsply, Argen, Degussa, and Pentron). We believe that if materials are compromised then more labor (which is our highest expense) will be required, not to mention the fact of less satisfactory result and a greater possibility of remakes. Our long term cost effectiveness is based on technical abilities, customer retention and minimal remakes. If you prescribe non-precious metals – “Medically Pure” Tilite® Ceramic Alloy with Titanium is the ultimate choice. Talladium’s Tilite® Alloys are I.S.O. 9002 Certified and have earned the CE mark. They have the same qualifications as artificial heart valves, joint implants and bone splints. All alloys are biocompatible with living tissue and can be used with implants. They also provide the strongest porcelain-to-metal bond of any non-precious alloy.

Accurate Occlusion:

Consistently achieving accurate occlusion is a task requiring a high level of accuracy from every technician, plus total control of all the variables associated with the materials involved in the fabrication process. For your convenience, we have developed several types of occlusion, each having a different amount of occlusal clearance. Each type is coded (for example, we have A-type, B-type, C-type occlusions) and precisely controlled. Simply tell us which type of occlusion works best for you and it will be consistently used every time.

Accurate Contacts:

Our definition of an accurate interproximal contact is a passive contact (a contact without pressure) that is correctly adapted to the contact area of the adjacent tooth. All of our contacts are double-checked on second unsectioned models to assure maximum accuracy. Extreme care is stressed when adjusting the contacts, since porcelain and contact tape can damage the delicate model, which can result in tight contacts.

Correct Shade:

Correct shades are achieved by correct combination of the dentin and incisal porcelains, utilizing color corrective lights, and making sure that the technician responsible for shade control is capable of realizing the most intricate color variations.

Precise Fit:

Precise fit is achieved by carefully trimming margins under magnification (we will call you if we are unsure about the margin), using technicians with extremely precise accuracy, and using light-cured, resin-based die spacers, which make the surface of the die virtually indestructible eliminating almost any possibility of scratching or distorting the die during the fabrication process.

Correct Contour and Anatomy:

The technicians who are responsible for contour, anatomy, and final look of every restoration are artistically inclined and are able to achieve the look that not only corresponds with clinically correct function, but also closely resembles nature, and matches characteristics of surrounding teeth.

Life-like porcelain:

Vital-looking restorations are the result of minimal (0.2 mm) thickness of metal copings and correctly applied layers of porcelain. Material handling is crucial in achieving the look of a natural dentition. Everything from porcelain storage, to mixing liquids to condensing instruments is important. Double-opaqueing method assures the strongest possible porcelain-to-metal bond.

Quality Control:

Every stage of production has to pass our quality control check before the fabrication process can continue. Everything will have to be done perfectly, no matter how much time it takes. No compromises.

Well Trained Technicians:

We believe that finding the right individuals and a high level of technical training is essential. To work in our laboratory, technicians must be quality oriented, artistically inclined, have good memory, be precise and understand that their employment advancement is directly connected to the dentist / patient satisfaction. Every aspect of fabrication is looked at as an individual task, which requires training, thorough understanding and exercise to achieve the level of quality and consistency of which we can be proud.

Carefully Read Instructions:

We consistently stress the importance of carefully reading and understanding all of the instructions accompanying the case. We will not proceed until everything is crystal clear and, if necessary, we will call you for clarification. Should you have any general instructions that you may want us to post with all of your cases – simply let us know in advance and our computerized system will automatically print them every time we receive a case from you.

“I sent a case to you because another lab tried it twice and could not get it right. Your work was absolutely beautiful. Case fit without a single adjustment. Post was a precise of a fit as I have ever seen. Tell your technician I am impressed. I am sending another difficult case to see if the above was an exception because it was the first from me, or the rule. In any case, thanks!”

“I wanted to express my gratitude for the fine work you have sent me over the years. Your work is always on time and my needs are always met. Under certain circumstances when a case is needed back early because of a patients scheduled vacation or a partial being involved Dentek promptly responds to the task. Technically your margins are perfect, shades are good, cases take very little if any adjusting at all, and your technicians pay attention to detail. It truly is a pleasure working with you all.”

“Thank you for making my patients smile! I am pleased to let you know one of my patients, (who happens to be a model), was discussing her crown with a friend and told me she was so pleased that her crown looked “so real” compared to her friends. The bottom line is when my patients are pleased, the end result is great success! Thanks again for the beautiful cosmetics.”

"Through the years I have sent numerous crown and bridge work to Dentek. I will continue to use this lab as I have found they are a accommodating lab to work with. Our cases are always back, on or before schedule. We are a very busy office and this is a big help to my staff as well as our patients. The time the patient spends in the chair is minimal with little or no adjustments or returned cases needed. Steve has also been a personal help to our office with fitting time in his busy schedule to meet with our patients and see how we can be a team in accommodating their needs. I have found Dentek to be an asset to my office and will continue to use this lab for many more preps to come.”
