Behind Bensonhurst Dental
One of Bensonhurst Dental Care’s unique assets is its in-house lab, where technicians craft veneers, crowns, and other cosmetic and surgical pieces using a mixture of highly trained manual handy craft, and the latest in 3d printing
technology. This cuts out the usual back and forth that happens between dentist, patient and remote lab, allowing for a more efficient, customized and high quality result, in a quicker time frame. Dr. Rubinshtein says going to the lab and
seeing the technicians work is one of the best parts of his day.
“It’s so amazing to see,” he says. “There’s so much artwork and detail involved. We have multiple technicians working tirelessly by hand to ensure the perfect natural match, and if it’s not perfect, we go back and fix it. In cosmetic
procedures like this, often times, the skill of the lab technicians can be just as crucial to patient satisfaction as the dentist themselves!”
In terms of technology, Bensonhurst uses a state-of-the-art 3D scanner to provide hyper-detailed 3D impressions of a patient’s mouth, which are then manipulated on the computer and brought to life on a 3D printer to give the handcraft
technicians a 100% accurate platform on which to finalize the veneers and crowns.
“With all these different technologies, you get where you want to be in a very short period of time and very efficiently,” he says. “When you do anything with scanning, it’s as precise as it gets,” Dr. Rubinshtein says. “But cosmetic
surgery is only the end point of a sometimes multi-step process. We have an array of services in our practice, from hygienists and periodontists to surgeons and TMJ specialist that help with specialist bone and joint consultation. Whatever
it takes to provide a healthy smile, we want to be able to provide under one roof.”
