Whatcom Dental Lab has significant experience creating restorations of all types on implants. We work with all major manufactures and a number of trusted third party companies to give our clients maximum restorative options.


Custom abutments, titanium bases, or stock abutments; single unit to full arch, cement retained or screw retained; zirconia or PFM. Every implant case is unique. WDL has worked with an endless combinations of options and is proficient in finding solutions for complex situations. We aim to be a comprehensive resource for our clients as they are planning implant-based restorative treatments.

We also make our own custom abutments out of a variety of materials.


After the initial impression is received at the lab or submitted by a 3D scan our technicians are able to begin designing the case on our specialized CAD/CAM software. We will work with the dentist’s preferences to pick the perfect implant parts to make the case a success.  The restorations are then built from the chosen material and parts. Once the structure is fabricated and refined, our technicians will add details and prefect the shade to make the crown or bridge blend in seamlessly with the patient’s mouth.  The case can ether be cemented in-house or by the doctor during the seat appointment.

ideal applications:

Implants are preferred in situations where:

  • the patient wants something more permanent or secure than a flipper or partial
  • only one tooth needs to be replaced and its unwise to compromise the healthy surrounding teeth with a bridge
  • the patient desires the most effective option for their tooth-loss regardless of cost or time frame

WDL is proficient in fabricating  many types of restorations on implants, such as:
