All Metal – Gold Crowns, Bridges, Onlays & Inlays

At VL Dental Lab, we create a variety of dental restorations with
professional, high-quality materials.

Dental Bridge

Dental bridges are used in order to replace missing teeth. The
existing teeth are used to create a bridge to cross the area where
the tooth is missing. The bridge can be made of gold, alloys,
porcelain or metal. This makes them strong and durable. A bridge
begins by creating abutments out of existing teeth where the
bridge is attached. The existing teeth are recontoured to provide
a strong base for the bridge. After these abutments are created, a
mold is taken and sent to our lab. From there, we use the mold to
create this customized bridge that will fit properly and feel as
close to a natural tooth as possible. The bridge will consist of two
crowns on each side to place the abutments and a pontic, which
is a new tooth.

Full Cast Crowns

A full cast crown can last for a lifetime. This type of restoration holds up through normal function well. It is a conservative restorative choice when it comes to longevity and durability of the crown. They can be made of solid metal or full gold. There is minimal preparation required before they are installed. They are created digitally for consistent results. The dentist will send these specifics to our lab for custom creation. They are great for posterior teeth where there is minimal room to add an appliance.

Onlays/Inlays

An inlay or onlay for a tooth doesn’t need a full crown, but does need a restoration to restore the shape of the tooth. An inlay is placed between bumps on the surface of chewing teeth, while an onlay covers just one or two bumps. Crowns, inlays and onlays usually require two dental visits in order to design and place. Your dentist will examine your teeth and take proper measurements to send to our lab to create your restoration. A skilled ceramist hand produces your custom dental work here.
