Scottish Centre for Excellence in Dentistry has an on-site laboratory which provides our patients with the highest standard of dentures and implant bridges. Our technicians work side by side with the dentists to achieve the best possible result aesthetically. We can also complete the treatments in a shorter time with less visits. Same day repairs of dentures can be carried out on-site as well which is much more convenient for our patients.
