Digital Services and Mold Making

Udell Dental Laboratory uses advanced digital technology to produce great fitting restorations. We can receive digital impressions in STL format from any intra-oral scanner. Files can be sent through CEREC Connect, or directly to the lab via secure email.

We use computer aided design (CAD) to create crowns, bridges and cast partial frameworks, and output to milling equipment or 3D printers. We provide high-quality milled crowns, bridges, veneers or copings in zirconia or lithium disilicate. Partial denture frames are computer designed and 3D printed to be cast in CoCr alloy or processed in Valplast. Additionally, we manufacture milled partials in other specialized materials. We are also your source for titanium or zirconia custom milled bars and implant abutments.

The efficiency, quality and improved communications made possible with digital dentistry has revolutionized the dental industry. It gives patients and dentists a more comfortable, less invasive way to get the data necessary for crowns, reduces time lost for pick-ups, eliminates chemical-based processes and expedites delivery of restorations. The improved esthetics and fit results in fewer remakes and reduced seating time.

Atlantis™ Components for Implants

A virtual image is generated with 3D scanning of the upper and lower models. The scanned image allows each AtlantisT abutment to be individually designed and produced for the specific space it will fit, and also in relation to the surrounding teeth. By using the Atlantis VAD™ (Virtual Abutment Design) software, Astra Tech designs the abutments from the final tooth shape, which achieves a more natural, esthetic result.
