AFFILIATED DENTAL LABORATORY

Henning du Plessis Dental Laboratory
Henning du Plessis Dental Laboratory is an established Dental Laboratory in Pretoria. 

We believe that function on dental restorations is as important as good aesthetics and therefor believe that Dental Technology is an art and science of manufacturing corrective devices and replacements for natural teeth. Restorative restorations are when we lose our teeth and they need to be replaced to maintain normal functions. Cosmetic restorations are the comprehensive oral care that combines art and science to optimally improve dental health, aesthetics and function. In both cases, we make use of state of the art materials and systems.

We have an in-lab Zirconium Oxide milling unit and an EMAX Press Lithium Disilicate System to produce some of the finest metal free restorations. Implantology and the restorations of implants are also one of our specialized fields.  Henning du Plessis completed various courses on implantology, nationally as well as abroad to make sure we can deliver the best outcome to patients. Each restoration will be different and each must simulate the function of the natural teeth, but beyond that, the greatest challenge is to capture and recreate both the perfection and the imperfection of natural teeth. 

Working side-by-side with Dr Truscott and his dedicated team at Smile Connection Dental Studio, each patient is in professional hands and make the whole process something to smile about!
