Dental Applications is a specialist laboratory concentrating on the preparation of dental implants and restorations for dentists in the UK. Established in 1998, we have gained a reputation for all areas of dental restorations, including dental implants, cosmetic reconstructions, ceramic restorations, and CAD/CAM designed and milled frameworks and abutments. On request, we even restore canine teeth on behalf of vetinary clients!

We are friendly and approachable and have worked with many of our customers for many years. Dentists choose us because we are helpful and knowledgeable and they have confidence that they can rely on us for high quality work that is always delivered on time. If required, we can assist with CAD/CAM assisted implant placement.

Our experience shows. Our highly skilled technicians are craftsman who take pride in their work. Many of our customers use us for their 'best' work.



dental implants & restoration

Equipped with the latest in dental implant technology at our laboratory in Earls Colne, Essex, Dental Applications specialises in the production of dental implant abutments and restorations for our long standing client base. We can if required, consult with your patients at your surgery on request to offer advice and expertise or assist with shade matching.


We specialise in all aspects of CAD/CAM design, from abutments to frameworks in a variety of materials and systems. Our products meet the ISO standards of medical devices ISO13485. Our relationship with industry leading implant providers including Atlantis, GC Europe, Dess and Nobel Procera and has proved very successful in recent years and enables us to accomodate all implant systems.

All Ceramic restorations

Where aesthetics is the priority, we recommend all-ceramic restoration. Our ceramic restorations are prepared using IPS e.max materials, with full pressed and layering techniques. Where necessary, zirconia frameworks are used. Our ceramic restorations include Crowns, Onlays, Inlays, Veneers, Bridges, Implant Crowns and more.

To achieve the best result with a ceramic restoration, designs are prepared by hand by our skilled technicians (as opposed to CAD designed)

Porcelain restorations

Where strength and function is paramount, you may prefer to restore with porcelain fused to alloy. We use only the highest quality porcelains with either high palladium or base alloys if preferred.

Having a good relationship and communication with our laboratory is vital to us to deliver the best quality of functional and aesthetics restorations to our patients, I have been impressed by the quality of work and the high standards produced by you and your team ever since I have worked with your laboratory.

I just wanted you to know that I'm very thankful for your nice work and high standards.

Many thanks again and keep up the excellent service and good work. Even though not everybody is telling you this, but working in a team with your laboratory make a difference in people lives.

Thank you

Dr Sergio Madrigal

I am a dentist in private practice and I have used Dental Applications for my crown, bridge and implant work for over 10 years. In this time I have developed a good working relationship with the technicians. I have always found them very helpful, knowledgeable and skilled in the work they produce for me.

My patients are always happy with the restorations produced from both a functional and cosmetic point of view.

I would highly recommend Dental Applications as a dental laboratory.

Private Dentist

I have known Tom Cutmore for 26 years, ever since he did work experience in my Practice. Whatever I said to him back then inspired him enough to train as a dental technician.

I have been using Tom's laboratory, Dental Applications, from its inception 18 years ago. He has grown his business and now leads a team of dental technicians in a modern, up to date and cutting edge lab.

He and his whole team offer a truly professional lab service. Whether I send in for a simple NHS crown or a complex implant case, the service and quality of the work I receive is outstanding.

I would not hesitate to recommend his lab to any other dental colleague.

Neil Chappell

Halstead Dental Care

Tom and his team at Dental Applications have been my technicians for the last 11 years and I wouldn't use anyone else. I am lucky enough to have a dental practice only a mile from their laboratory, which allows us to work closely on complex cases and provide patients the optimum quality of care and treatment. The quality of materials used and the attention to detail provided is excellent. Nothing is too much trouble as the technicians care about my patients as much as I do. The range of services is broad, from simple crowns to complex implant work.

The Dental Applications team is reliable and they consistently deliver fantastic results. I cannot recommend them highly enough.

Louise McAllister

The Essex Dental Clinic

I have been using Dental Applications for over 10 years. Tom and the team provide an excellent service - from daily collections to a quality final product. Whether a single unit gold crown or an involved full arch Implant case, Tom provides a level of service that achieves precision and confidence to both clinician and patient. Tom is always at hand to give you advice and feedback in relation to complex cases and he provides an invaluable service working with our prosthetic technician in cases that involve precision attachments and implants.

Dental Applications have been working with me in providing cast restorations for my patients for 28yrs. The quality of work, service and advice sets them apart from other laboratories. Tom has always produced work of excellent aesthetics, fit and function, independent of how much pressure I put him under!

Whilst the quality they achieve has become standard and I believe the true strength of the laboratory is how they engage with me and the other clinicians at the practice, they are always available to feedback advice, visit the practice or accept patients visiting their lab. The outcome is that the dentists improve and our life at the chairside becomes much easier in delivering the quality laboratory pieces they should expect.

Tom and his team are very knowledgeable and provide an excellent standard of work. They are always at the end of the phone if needed and the service and efficiency is second to none. They have strengthened my confidence and motivation to provide a new level of treatment to my patients. If you want to raise your standards, make your dentistry more profitable and reduce your stress, I can't recommend Dental Applications more highly.

Dr Gavin Barry (B. Dent. Sc.)

I have worked with Tom and his team since 2000 and have been consistently impressed by their professionalism and consistent high quality of work.
