Crown Bridge Fabrication

Spokane-based Miller Dental Lab provides comprehensive crown and bridge fabrication services for dentists looking for the best precision-crafted solutions to restore their patients’ oral health and smiles.

We know how patients today demand a high level of aesthetics as well as functionality in treatments to repair or replace teeth, and our crowns and bridges will enable you to consistently meet those expectations.

Miller Dental Lab has played a key role in restorative dentistry in the Northwest for 70 years. During that time, we’ve seen incredible progress in crown and bridge technology, and we’ve kept up to date with these advances while never losing sight of our core values in offering outstanding customer service.

Our Crown and Bridge Fabrication Services

Miller Dental lab technicians are skilled in the science and artistry of producing crowns and bridges, and they work with premium materials from leading industry brands.

Our streamlined, start-to-finish crown and bridge fabrication services – with fast delivery without sacrificing quality and precision – include E.Max crowns, PFM single-unit crowns, single posterior and anterior zirconia crowns, and full gold crowns, plus:

Full Zirconia Bridges

The introduction of zirconia bridges has enabled dentists to offer patients highly durable and aesthetic restorations that also benefit gum health by using smaller connectors than those typically found in all-ceramic bridges.

Zirconia bridges also provide an attractive option for patients who may have concerns over allergies from metal bridges.

Our full zirconia bridges are designed and fabricated for a precise fit, which combined with exceptional aesthetics, will delight your patients.

PFM Bridges

PFM (porcelain fused to metal) bridges – two PFM crowns with a pontic in the middle –have provided a standard restoration treatment since the 1960s and continue to be a popular choice for patients looking for an affordable tooth replacement solution to enhance their smile.

They are highly aesthetic like all-ceramic crowns but a lot less expensive and more dependable.

Our PFM crowns and bridges are extremely durable and can last for 10 to 15 years – making them a preferred choice for replacing back teeth. They also provide the aesthetic option that’s most resistant to cracks and chips, even with patients who clench or grind their teeth.

PMMA Temporary Crowns

Miller Dental Lab PMMA (polymethyl methacrylate) temporary crowns are used across a wide range of cases, including large-span bridges and implants.

Traditionally, these temporary restorations were produced solely by hand. Today, the availability of CAD (computer-aided design) and CAM (computer-aided manufacturing) facilities enables a faster process, from the design stage through to milling.

Our PMMA temporary crowns are color-stable and we fabricate them from a choice of multiple shades to provide an effective aesthetic temporary solution for your patients.

Types of Bridge and Crown Fabrications

We offer bridge and crown fabrication services for a variety of types of bridges, including:

  • Traditional bridges (the most popular) – one or more artificial teeth held in place by crowns on adjacent natural teeth.
  • Cantilever bridges – used when natural teeth are only present on one side of a gap and abutment teeth are prepared on the other side.
  • Maryland bridges – using porcelain or metal bands to bind a pontic to the backs of surrounding natural teeth.
  • Implant-supported bridges – anchored by dental implants, typically to replace more than one missing tooth.

Our Customer Service Goals

Miller Dental Lab places a strong emphasis on customer service in the manufacture and supply of crowns and bridges to our clients – a crucial factor in enabling you to ensure your patients get the best dental care. We have a deep understanding of how dental practices work and exactly what they need – and expect – from their dental lab, and we strive to offer customer service capabilities that fulfill or exceed our clients’ expectations. We do this through factors such as:

  • Fast response. When dentists contact us about current or potential cases, we realize the importance of responding quickly – whether it’s a quick question about billing or a more involved technical query. We believe that replying in a timely manner helps to build a strong working relationship with our partner dentists.
  • Solving problems. However challenging a particular crown or bridge case is, we’ll work with you to achieve the optimum solution for your patient – reassessing the approach or refabricating a product, for example. Our customers find that our experience in difficult cases enables us to think creatively to find the best solution.
  • Getting fabrications right the first time. Although some extra crown and bridge fabrication work may be required in some cases, we maintain a high standard of quality control aimed at providing an end product that satisfies our dentists and their patients first time.

Each member of our dental lab team understands the importance of customer satisfaction and always interacts with our clients in a professional, courteous manner with a friendly, helpful approach in providing whatever help they need.

Our focus on customer service comes from being a family-owned and run business since 1951, and these traditional family business values are as important to us as keeping abreast with advances in technology.
