Listen & Learn

Hello there! It’s Loren Wulf from Olivia Dental Lab, your guide to the world of dental craftsmanship. Today, I’m taking you behind the scenes at Olivia Dental Lab, where we blend artistry with technology to create dental masterpieces. Let’s dive into the fascinating journey of crafting a dental crown, shall we?

1) Data Acquisition: The iTero Scanners
Our day begins with the most crucial step: data acquisition. At Olivia Dental Lab, we trust none other than the iTero Scanners for this task. These state-of-the-art devices capture every nook and cranny of the patient’s mouth, ensuring that our crowns fit like a glove. But it’s not just about collecting data; it’s about quality control (QC). We meticulously review the scans to ensure accuracy because precision is our middle name!

2) Crown Design: The Magic of Exocad
Once we have the perfect scan, it’s time to bring our crown to life. Enter Exocad, our trusted design software. With its intuitive interface and advanced tools, we sculpt the crown, ensuring it’s not just functional but also aesthetically pleasing. Every curve, every edge is designed with the patient’s comfort and smile in mind.

3) Milling Perfection: The Armann Girrbach Matik Mill
Now, this is where the magic happens! Our design is sent to the Armann Girrbach Matik Mill, a marvel of modern technology. This machine carves out our crown from a block of Evolve Zirconia with unparalleled precision. The result? A crown that’s strong, durable, and ready for the next step.

4) The Finishing Touch: Master Ceramics
The milled crown is impressive, but it’s not complete without the artistry of our master ceramists. They hand-paint and glaze the crown, giving it a natural look that mimics real teeth. It’s this blend of technology and craftsmanship that sets Olivia Dental Lab apart.

From the initial scan to the final brushstroke, every crown we create is a testament to our dedication, expertise, and passion. At Olivia Dental Lab, we don’t just make crowns; we craft smiles. So, the next time you see a dazzling smile, remember the art and science that went into it. Until next time, keep smiling!
