Welcome to Gator Ceramics Dental Lab. We are a local dental lab (in Bossier City, Louisiana) with national reach. We specialize in fixed restorations including crowns, bridges, veneers, attachments, and custom implant abutments.
Gator Ceramics is known in the dental industry for personalized service and cutting edge technology. Our goal is to provide products which fit exceptionally well and excite patients with a natural look and feel that changes smiles and enhances lives.
Realizing that an accurate impression is fundamental to a successful outcome in restorative dentistry, we’ve chosen to employ the most advanced technology available. We were the first lab in the state to incorporate the Cadent iTeroTM digital impression system. We continue to lead the industry in the use and application of scan technology in an effort to constantly improve our quality and efficiency.
With this system, a restorative dentist, periodontist or oral surgeon can take a digital scan of the patient’s teeth and bite and transmit the file via a wireless internet connection to our lab. The entire dental team is more efficient using this state-of-the-art process, and this approach provides significant time, cost, and accuracy benefits for the dentist and the patient.
If you are a dentist or oral surgeon, we would welcome the opportunity to partner with your practice. If you are a patient, make sure to ask for a fixed restoration from Gator Ceramics Dental Lab.
Our job is to make you look good!
Teamwork Makes the Dream Work
One of the most critical components to a successful restorative outcome is how the laboratory works with the dentist office to properly fill prescriptions. We at Gator Ceramics believe that excellent communication with our dentist partners is an absolute necessity to achieve predictable results and ultimately, happy patients. We view ourselves as an extension of the dentist's office and an integral part of the dental team. We take great pride in our ability to anticipate issues that might otherwise result in a less than desirable outcome. If we foresee any issues, we communicate with our dentist partners to avoid these potential failures. Communication is done occasionally in person, often over the phone, and sometimes through written correspondence. However, the goal is always to provide the best possible results in every case that we create.
9/13/17 - Spotlight: Full Contour Zirconia Crown
We would like to take a moment to spotlight one of our more popular products; the GatorZ Crown. GatorZ Crowns are made with an aesthetically pleasing yet functional zirconia material. While this is not the strongest material we offer, it is measured at 850 MPA (which is considered a very strong tensile strength rating). We use a multilayer puck that allows us to regulate the amount of translucency and adjust shade balance. Please note that GatorZ Crowns can be applied to anterior as well as posterior areas. For strength and aesthetics, go for GatorZ Crowns!
“The communication and accessibility we’ve experienced working with Gator Ceramics Dental Lab have been exceptional. Creation of digital impressions to improve accuracy and shorten patient chair time is where our industry is going. It’s exciting to be working together on the leading edge of this technology, making it available to patients, and delivering unparalleled restorative dentistry outcomes.”
