The Lab May Be More Important Than Your Dentist
The Lab May Be More Important Than Your Dentist
Are you looking for a new dentist to look after you and your family? In this 10-part series of Interview Questions for Your New Dentist, we will go through the things you should be asking your new dentist before going ahead with them.

In today’s video, we will go through the question: Which lab are you using?

If you are like most dental patients, you probably have no idea which lab your dentist is using. This lack of information could cost you dearly.

Dental labs create dentures, crowns, bridges, orthodontic appliances, and other dental restorations like implant crowns. There can be a huge difference in the quality of these labs.

Did you know that there are foreign labs? These labs may include tin, aluminium or even lead in their restorations. A reputable, first-class lab will certify that its restorations contain none of those metals and provide the dentist and patient with a warranty on their craftsmanship.

You should be particularly wary if your dentist is using a lab in a third world country, where the practice of using those metals is very common. Some of the top labs in Melbourne are Omega Ceramics, A&B dental lab, New Concepts dental lab, and I am sure there are many others.

If you don’t know where or which lab your dentist is using, you need to find out… now!

I hope you found this video useful.

After hearing numerous excellent reports about this clinic, I decided to visit myself. I must say that it was a fantastic experience, even better than I expected! The clinic is bright and modern, the receptionists and nurses are friendly and help to put you at ease. The dentist is gentle, knowledgeable and explains everything so thoroughly!
