Dental implant restorations have become one of the fastest growing areas of dentistry today. It is an indispensable part of most practices. Burbank Dental Laboratory is dedicated to staying ahead of the curve on the developments of implant solutions. But that is nothing new. Here at Burbank, President Tony Sedler initiated the commitment to our implant department in 1983 when he took on the challenge of becoming Nobel Certified. Ever since this birth of Burbank’s implant program, the lab has grown our implant-related restoration offerings and expertise.
In 2010 Burbank took a giant step forward into the future of implant-supported lab fabricated restorative dentistry. Burbank invested over $3,000,000 in CNC milling systems and CAD/CAM technology and brought some of the brightest technicians in the digital dental lab world to Burbank Dental Lab. Over the last 7 years, Burbank Dental Lab has developed even more intellectual properties and acquired additional software and hardware that allow us to produce some of the world's finest implant abutments, bars, and hybrid restorations.
