Personal Service

Berkeley Dental Laboratory was established in 1971 and has been a successful laboratory for over 40 years. We specialize in making doctors and patients happy by offering a full line of dental options from highly aesthetic crowns and bridges to night guards for your patients' comfort.

With a commitment to excellence, we will do our best to meet your specific needs and schedule. We provide restorations with the finest materials, consistent precise fit, and beautiful natural aesthetics which will give you an exceptional value that you expect from your dependable lab partner.

We use and invest in the latest advancements in digital dentistry. We are equipped with the Sirona inLab CAD/CAM system. Every step of the manufacturing process from scanning and designing digitally to the milling and final glazing procedure is done in lab in California. Having this most advanced complete digital system in house, we are able to offer restorations with any material or brand you prescribe and fabricate them with consistent digital precision. We accept your in coming cases via digital impression scans and will provide same day finished cases when needed. We receive your digital image scan while your patient is still in the chair. This provides simultaneous communication between your practice and our lab and we can plan the case together and make any recommendations for adjustments to the prep or the opposing or proximal contacts to achieve the best outcome of the final restoration.

Darrell began his dental career at Berkeley Dental Laboratory in 1992, while still in dental school and graduated in 1994. In 2008 he became owner and invested in new CAD/CAM equipment and is always searching for new ways to stay innovative and improve his craft. Their current dentists, many of them loyal customers of over 20 years value the extra personal attention and quality of the products they are receiving due to the new ownership. Since then, Berkeley Dental Laboratory has experienced a constant growth despite the economic melt down. Darrell credits his success to having very high standards and his ability to provide consistent quality restorations and great personal service.

Outside of the lab, Darrell and his wife enjoy spending time with their 4 daughters and especially sharing their interest in youth sports.

SZ - BruxZir Full Contour Solid Zirconia

BruxZir is the #1 prescribed brand of full contour solid zirconia in North America and is virtually chip-proof and extremely durable. Our BruxZir full contour solid zirconia restorations are digitally designed and manufactured using CAD/CAM technology. We use our advanced computer software to design to your specific contact and contour preferences and mill with our 5-axis milling unit for a consistent precise digital fit that seats with little to no chair side adjustments. We are an Authorized BruxZir Laboratory and use authentic BruxZir zirconia and BruxZir Anterior. We apply a glaze to the final BruxZir restoration to give it a smooth surface, which prevents plaque accumulation and wear to the opposing dentition.

PFZ - Porcelain Fused to Zirconia

Our Porcelain Fused to Zirconia crown is digitally designed and milled using our in house CAD/CAM system. We use our computer software to produce a zirconia substructure with the proper design for porcelain support and use our sophisticated milling machine to mill with digital precision. Multiple powders of veneering ceramic are layered by hand over the zirconia substructure for a natural translucent restoration. We apply a final glaze to prevent plaque accumulation and wear to opposing dentition.

IPS e.max

IPS e.max is a monolithic lithium disilicate ceramic that has been optimized for translucency, durability and strength. Our IPS e.max approved, Sirona inLab system is used to design and mill with a consistent precise digital fit. We use our shade knowledge and experience when we perform the stain and glaze procedure to give the restoration a natural appearance. In situations when more translucency or a custom shade is needed, we will cutback in the appropriate areas and veneer layering ceramic over the restoration before we apply the final glaze. The smooth surface of the final e.max restoration prevents plaque buildup and opposing dentition wear.

PFM - Porcelain Fused to Metal

Our Porcelain Fused to Metal crown is designed digitally using our computer's advanced dental software. This method gives the substructure the best design for porcelain support and a consistent precise fit. We hand layer the substructure with Dentsply Ceramco porcelain and use a custom combination of powders to achieve a natural aesthetic and translucent restoration. The glazed smooth surface of the final PFM restoration prevents plaque buildup and wear to the opposing dentition.

FMC - Full Metal Crown

Our Full Metal Crown is digitally designed using our computer's advanced dental designing software. Designing digitally provides a consistent precise fit that seats with little to no chair side adjustments to the proximal and occlusal contacts. After the designing stage, we will fabricate the restoration with your preferred alloy. We finish the FMC to a smooth surface and polish to a beautiful shine.

Night Guard

Let us help you show your patients that you genuinely care about their comfort. Your patients that grind their teeth and clench their jaws, commonly experience jaw pain and even headaches. Offer to have a custom made night guard fabricated just for them. We will construct a night guard to your occlusal plane specifications on the upper or lower arch. Our night guards will provide excellent fit and retention and will relieve the discomforts that your patients may be experiencing from grinding. Our night guards will also prevent any further destruction and wear to their existing dentition.
