Digitising Dentistry with Our In-House Digital Dental Lab

Digital Dental Lab

As a flagship dental facility, SmileBay Signature Advanced Implant Centre strives to provide patients with an exceptional dental experience through innovative dental procedures in addition to having the latest world-class dental facilities. This is made even easier with its dedicated Digital Dental Lab.

“Our in-house Digital Dental Lab enables us to prioritise and provide patients with higher standards of quality and comfort, while also practising the latest dental techniques. The availability of cutting-edge dental technology at our disposal ensures that all our patients receive excellent dental care,” said Dr. Ian Foo, a dentist at SmileBay Signature Advanced Implant Centre.

“We have a large selection of cutting-edge, top-notch dental equipment, including the CEREC CAD-CAM (computer-aided design/computer-aided manufacturing) system and the Zirkonzahn CAD-CAM system, which spares us the trouble of scheduling extra appointments for cases like permanent restoration procedures,” he shared, before illustrating how the workflow is facilitated through the in-house Digital Dental Lab.

“In the Digital Dental Lab, we use the CAD-CAM technology to quickly scan the teeth and determine whether one needs a veneer or crown, design it in the software, and then mill it from a block of ceramic or any other material selected,” he continued.

Besides that, the dental team is able to troubleshoot various dental issues, thanks to the easy access to cutting-edge dental equipment like the 3Shape TRIOS 3 intraoral scanner, dental intraoral camera and other types of dental technologies, which may prevent the need for more invasive dental treatments. For example, the dental intraoral camera’s revolutionary lens technology allows for simple image capture and the production of sharp, clear pictures for easier identification of the issue at hand without compromising patients’ comfort.

With the in-house Digital Dental Lab, patients can skip longer waiting times and alternating visits just to get the perfect prostheses. With the streamlined workflow, it’s just faster, simply put. “Our expansive laboratory, one of only a few in the country, is equipped with state-of-the-art dental technology and equipment,” Dr. Ian emphasised.

To ensure proper quality control is maintained with quicker turnaround times, these are managed by qualified in-house lab technicians and specialists. Thus, patients are guaranteed the most practical and relaxing dental experience while receiving excellent care. 

It is also worth noting that the Digital Dental Lab allows for greater control over patients’ treatments from beginning to end. According to Dr. Ian, in addition to digital scanning and software design for dental restorations, SmileBay Signature Advanced Implant Centre uses 3D printing technology to create digitally developed devices that can help with diagnostics and treatment planning. “The vast majority of our 3D printing is used to make crowns and bridges, as well as surgical stents for computer-guided surgery,” he added.

As a premium flagship dental outlet in the northern region of Malaysia, SmileBay Signature Advanced Implant Centre is consistently at the forefront of identifying and implementing the most recent technological advances in the dental industry. If you would like to be a part of this leading dental establishment, this is your chance to get up close and personal with a wide range of cutting-edge dental equipment and highly skilled dental surgeons!
