Hear from experts who we have worked with.

‘‘I had the opportunity to work with Matt 2 years ago on my first case. I've worked with lots of lab technicians, but Matt's knowledge and attention to detail are unmatched. He delivered beyond my expectations and certainly my patients' as well; I'd recommend him to anyone who wants the best. He will deliver.’’

‘‘This is at least the 10th crown and bridge lab I've worked with in my career. This delivery of 6 anterior units was the smoothest delivery I've ever made and, by far, the most beautiful porcelain work. Pristine margins, even interproximal, and balanced incisal contacts. Even having worked with other AACD-accredited technicians, I've never experienced anything like this. Well worth the extra 3-4 week wait. CMR gave me back a perfect showcase result!’’

What to Send to CMR Dental Lab

Our experts will handle the rest.

To ensure the seamless fabrication of your restorations, please send us the following information (as relevant to your needs) when sending cases to us:

  • Master Impression or Scan
    Include precise impressions of both the maxillary and mandibular arches. These impressions serve as the foundation for creating accurate restorations.

    You can send a scan, and we accept iTero, Trios, or STL files.

  • Provisional Restoration Scan or Model
    Provide detailed impressions, models, or scan of any provisional restorations that have been placed.

    This allows us to tailor our fabrication process to align with the existing provisional work.

  • Preoperative Scan or Models
    Provide detailed impressions, models, or scan of any preoperative restorations.
  • Bite Registrations or Scans
    Include bite registrations for master models/scans specifying whether the bite is taken at Maximum Intercuspation (MIP), Centric Relation (CR), or a neuromuscular position. This crucial information helps us ensure proper mounting of the case on an articulator. You can send both physical and scan bites if you prefer.

    Please supply bite registrations or a bite scan of the approved adjusted provisionals, which allows us to cross reference the prep bite and the temp bite to also ensure proper mounting of the case.

  • Photos for Communication

    Provide photos illustrating the clinical condition and goals of the case. These visuals aid in effective communication and treatment planning. Ensure to refer to the sample set for guidance here.

  • Detailed Lab Slip

Photo Guide

To ensure precise treatment planning and fabrication, follow these steps when capturing and sending photos for diagnostic evaluation and treatment:

These first four photos plus a stick bite photo are required for a diagnostic wax-up or PMMA Esthetic overlays. The final treatment of the case requires the other photos to be taken.

A full face photo is a mandatory photo for anterior cases.

  1. Straight on 1:2 photo of the preoperative condition. (In this case, the patient initially presented with previous dental work that was in need of being redone).
  2. Left Lateral 1:2.
  3. Right Lateral 1:2.
  4. Straight on, big smile with the incisal edges visible. Ask the patient to “open and smile” if needed to see the teeth.

Photos of Temporaries

  1. 1:2 straight on. This provides a closer look at how the provisional restorations are shaped and how they interact with the lips.
  2. Temps right lateral view 1:2. This helps evaluate the incisal edge vs. the wet-dry line on the lip.
  3. Right lateral 1:2. This also helps evaluate how the teeth interact with the lips.
  4. Full-face photo of the temps, with a big smile. Be sure the patient is looking right into the camera. Use a high-resolution photo that will allow us to zoom in and crop the photo to see more detail. Have the patient open while smiling if necessary to expose the incisal edges. You want to see the bicuspid cusp tips as well. This is the photo that will direct the final design of the smile.

For Final Smile Design

  1. Face bow verification photo. Be sure the photo angle is straight on, or you will not be able to evaluate the photo properly.
  2. Stick bite photo. Be sure the patient is looking straight into the camera. If the photo is taken from a slightly lateral angle, it will appear that the stick is canting one way or the other. Patients do not need to bite hard into this!
  3. Bigger full-face smile showing the gingival display. This is another “open slightly and smile” shot. This is something that people don’t naturally do without instruction; professional models are taught to do this. It is a great shot for smile design, everything is visible and can be evaluated.
  4. Looking down on the midline shows the wet dry line and how the centrals relate to the lips.
  5. Shade communication of gingival color is only necessary for cases where we are using pink ceramic to match the patient’s natural gingiva.
  6. Shade matching photos. Try to keep shade tabs in the same focal plane as the teeth. Be sure the shade tabs can be identified in the photo. It is good to take this photo from several different angles if we are trying to match a single existing tooth. In this case, one photo like this is adequate to show the color of the provisionals and let us know what shade the patient would like for their final restorations.

Ensure all photos are clear, well-lit, and taken at the correct angles to facilitate accurate treatment planning and fabrication. These photos serve as invaluable communication tools between clinicians and our lab, ensuring optimal treatment outcomes for your patients.
