Digital Dentistry

Digital dentistry has many clear advantages than traditional lab technology and procedures. There are three main advantages of digital dentistry: improved efficiency, accuracy and predictability. We feel that by harnessing these three advantages, we can offer our clients the highest quality restorations on the market. We use top of the line technologies from some of the biggest names in the dental industry.

Our 3Shape scanner and 3Shape CAD Design – Dental System™ is an “open” system, meaning that it is compatible with any company’s scan files. For example, we are able to accept your iTero or E4D scans, although we use 3Shape CAD software.

Our Roland DWX-50 milling machine is a workhorse. The DWX-50 is a 5-axis, dry mill. We use it to mill wax, zirconia and PMMA, which allows us the ability to use our digital software to create any type of restoration.

The future of dentistry is right now.

  • Emerick Crown and Bridge delivers the best restorations I have seen. We have been sending our impressions to them for years and have never been disappointed. Their talented technicians fabricate highly esthetic restorations with precise fitting margins. Now I have such high expectations for a lab that I wouldn’t think of sending my business elsewhere.

  • I have been working with Emerick Lab for over thirteen years. During this time, I have grown through numerous continuing education classes and have needed a key team lab specialist to grow with me. Mike has been that partner for me.  We collaborate on cases and learn from one another. Mike frequently attends continuing education and also invests in the latest technology, benefiting me as well as my patients. I also appreciate that Emerick Lab is a smaller, intimate lab.  Because of this, I know my work is consistently done by the same technicians and checked for quality control to my specifications. Even when cases do not go as planned (which is not often), Mike and his team are invested in making the necessary changes in a timely manner to minimize my loss of chair time and the patient's time as well. It is evident when you talk to Mike that he loves what he does and he gives his best daily, as does his team.
