    Frequently Asked Questions


    What are the trends in dental lab market?

    During recent years, the rise in the use of 3D printing has been observed in dental laboratories. A 3D printed model is more accurate in matters of size and shape and can be taken directly from a doctor-supplied intraoral scan. Through this technique, a large number of models can also be printed simultaneously, which highly saves the amount of time required. Also, 3D printing technology continues to advance; moreover, the prices are expected to come down during the future years. For instance, the cost incurred by dental laboratories to develop a 3D printed model using an intraoral scan and CAD/CAM processes is less compared to the expenses of making it conventionally. Moreover, the technicians involved require less time to carry out the procedure, which reduced the labor cost.

    What are dental lab?

    A dental lab is an organization that manufactures or customizes dental products such as dentures, implants, a crown (cap), veneers, and others. Dental laboratory plays a vital role in the restorative dentistry. It is responsible for manufacturing and providing outsourcing of dental aesthetic products. It is owned by a dentist, and dental technicians are employed for assistance.

    What are the factors that can hinder the market growth?

    The high cost of equipment and installation and dearth of skilled professionals in the dental laboratories across the globe are the major factors expected to hamper the market growth in the coming years. The cost of equipment required in the dental laboratories is much higher; the cost associated with installation is also higher. For instance, the cost of dental CAD/CAM equipment is approximately US$ 100,000. The dentist or the owner of the dental laboratory incurs additional cost to install the equipment and train a technician. Thus, the high cost is responsible for the expensive usual and customized fees for making crowns, bridges, and others.
