Dental implant treatment is very cost-effective in the long-term and because we only work with the best dental surgeons and dentists, we know how predictably safe dental implant treatment can be.

Denture Reline

A common cause for dentures feeling loose or fracturing is being ill-fitting. The older the denture, usually means the older the wearer, unfortunately with age our gums change and they start to recede away leaving the denture to bounce around.

Our Journey

The Hive Dental Laboratory is the brainchild of our Laboratory Directors, Emily Pittard and Eleanor Pittard. Having worked in dentistry for over 12 years Emily decided that she wanted to develop a dental laboratory that offered a new, transparent alternative to traditional working methods, and working alongside Eleanor from a business perspective The Hive Laboratory was born.

Our laboratory works directly with dentists and patients alike to bridge the gap between aspirations and reality. We are always onsite at our laboratory in the centre of Bournemouth, Dorset. Open from Monday to Friday onsite and 24/7 for repairs, we are growing rapidly.

Speech Marks

“I first met Emily 3 years ago where I walked into the practice needing completely new dentures.

She spent a lot of time with me talking through all the options available; showing me the difference between them all and even letting me see inside the laboratory just to allay my fears about where the teeth come from. I can honestly say I have never met a more lovely person or kind dental professional in my life.

Her commitment to getting it right is second to none and I never feel like I’m wasting her time.”

Mr C Vangelder

Speech Marks

“My smile is perfect now and, I always thought false teeth were meant to look bad! or at least false, not these ones!

I’ve told everyone to come to The Hive Laboratory to get their teeth done!

Thanks guys.”

Mr E Timojenko

Speech Marks

“I cannot thank you enough for the time, care and skill given to making my implant crown.

From the moment you came in to the surgery I felt at ease, you talked through everything that was going to happen; picked the shade with me and even showed me how you design on the computer! (Isn’t technology marvellous?!).

The crown fitted beautifully and looks very natural. All round gold star!”

Mr P Roberts

Speech Marks

“It was a joy meeting Emily to discuss my new teeth. She explained the stages in the laboratory into making teeth and I now realise why dentists charge so much!

You have not only given me teeth you have given me back my confidence and my life. Thank you so much Emily.”

Mrs A Goad

Speech Marks

“Hello Emily,

I would like to thank you for your care, attention and expertise over the last couple of months when I had a replacement implant denture made and fitted. Everything was explained in full detail as to what would happen at each visit and the materials that the denture would consist of – and I was consulted at the time re the colouring of the teeth.

I am really pleased with the end result – which fits like a glove.”

Mrs C Wapshott

Speech Marks

“My dentist explained that your laboratory made my tooth from the moulds he took. I don’t know how you managed to do it but the tooth is PERFECT! I have always been skeptical of dentists stealing money but now I have completely turned my opinion around.

Thank you and your team for giving me my smile back.”
