Who we are and our experience…

Dental Lab Direct’s founder has been in the dental and orthodontic industry for 30+ years and has done dental lab work for over 800 dentists & orthodontists all over the United States.  His years of work & research for the dental/orthodontic community have yielded the finest process & products found in the market, which dentists and orthodontists today provide to their clients.  In 1997, he earned a U.S. Patent for another dental appliance “sports mouthpiece” that can be used to prevent snoring.  Our products include: Invisible Braces (coming soon), Retainers, Nightguards, Partial Dentures, Snoring Appliances, Whitening Gel, & Whitening Trays.

Here's how it works:

When you receive your kit, review the steps and instructions first. Then take out 1 set of the YELLOW & BLUE impression material (putty).


Mix the two pieces of putty together for 45 seconds to get one solid color (blue).


When your putty is one solid color, simply roll it and shape it like a finger.  Pick up your tray.


Put the finger shaped putty into the tray, making sure to cover all parts of the tray.


Take the tray and place it over the center of your upper or lower teeth (remember that this putty will harden in under two (2) minutes). Push the tray over your teeth. Hold for four (4) minutes, then remove.


 Send your impressions back to our dental lab using the pre-paid envelope that came with your kit. We make your mouthpiece (s) & send it back to you. As a member of the National Association of Dental Laboratories, you can rest assured knowing you're getting a quality custom made dental appliance!

Dental Lab Direct™ Whitening Trays

Our Professional Tooth Whitening System consists of customized whitening trays (made of a thin flexible plastic to fit your teeth exclusively) and three (3) syringes of 22% tooth whitener Carbamide Peroxide tooth whitening-gel.  We construct the whitening trays from the impression trays and putty contained in our 'Impression Kit'; Impressions that you make and ship back to our lab.

Upon receiving your Custom Professional Tooth Whitening Trays, a very small amount of tooth whitening gel from a pre-loaded gel-syringe are placed into them, and then placed over teeth.  The trays are worn for thirty minutes to an hour, depending on sensitivity.

Trays are worn for the first 5 days, then twice a week to maintain desired tooth brightness.  Compare ours versus the dentists versus the OTC (over the counter) type.  You’ll easily see the value of NeonBrite’s products and services.

The uses of Custom Professional Tooth Whitening trays are by far the most comfortable.  The trays are form fitted, not bulky like the type one boils.  They stay in place unlike whitening strips; trays can be worn anytime, not specifically at night and provide for a more even whitening of your teeth.

Our Tooth Whitening Gel is a 22% tooth whitener Carbamide Peroxide.  The boil, strip, & applicator type is only 3-4 % and must be worn much, much longer for the same desired effect. Ensure to purchase sensitivity toothpaste prior to using the system.


Dental Lab Direct™ Invisible Retainers

 Dental Lab Direct™ announces that Invisible clear retainers are now available for individuals with concern over their teeth “crowding”.  These Invisible clear retainers are made of a thin, clear, durable plastic that snaps into place over the teeth and prevents teeth rotation & migration.  When using this transparent dental retainer, teeth and gums show through the plastic, unlike the “Hawley” retainer (metal wire & denture plastic).  When one smiles others are not able to see the dental retainer.  Mouth retainers with the wire across the front teeth are used mostly to keep teeth from shifting, but can also be used to move teeth. Dental night guards are worn at night to protect the teeth.

 Dental Lab Direct™’s invisible retainers do not move teeth; they simply keep teeth in their current position & eliminate further crowding.  By wearing these for just 15-30 minutes per day, it will prevent teeth from rotation or migration.  These clear retainers are made of the same materials that dentists use and manufactured by the same lab as well.

 Dental Lab Direct™ saves its customers hundreds of dollars by sending them a “Teeth Impression Kit” - for retainers, instead of another "TRIP TO THE DENTIST".  The cost of these clear retainers at a dental office ranges from $300 to $500 and usually includes a full examination.

Clear or Essix Retainers


Retainers After Braces

Purpose: The dental retainers are important to hold the teeth after braces are removed. New bone and supporting fibers of the teeth are being completed for the new tooth positions.

Time of Use: Mouth retainers are usually worn until eruption of the permanent teeth makes wearing a mouth retainer difficult. You will start with full time wear and phase slowly into night time wear as a dental night guard. Experiencing tightness when placing the retainers after leaving them out for a period of time is an indication of how often you need to wear the retainers.

Care: To keep your dental retainers fresh and clean, scrub them before putting them in their case. Use warm or cool water and soap. Hot water will warp the retainers. Limit the soaking time to 15 minutes if you choose to use Efferdent. We have found that over time Efferdent weakens the solder joints. Brushing with Listerine will decrease bacteria and give your retainer a fresh taste.

Adapting: Most people get used to mouth retainers within a day or two. At first there may be a new plastic taste and you may have extra saliva in your mouth. Reading aloud the first day will help your speech adapt. The habit of flipping a dental retainer in and out with your tongue will loosen the dental retainer and may break the wires and/or plastic.

Visits: Upon completion of early phase orthodontic treatment, you will be checked periodically with visits to the dentist. Bring the dental retainer to your visits. If the dental retainer does not fit or if there is any tissue soreness, call us for an appointment as soon as possible.

Breakage/Loss: The common habit of flipping the retainers in and out with your tongue will make it become loose and can introduce stresses in the plastic or wires which will result in breakage. 

Relapse: Failure to use dental retainers regularly may result in unfavorable tooth movement. If brought to your dentist's attention early it may be corrected with another retainer. If not caught early, retreatment with braces may be necessary.

Dental Lab Direct™ Night Guard

Dental Lab Direct™ announces the Custom Comfort NiteGard® is now available for individuals for bruxism treatment. Bruxism \‘brək˛si-zəm\ n [Gk brychein to gnash the teeth]: the habit of unconsciously gritting or grinding the teeth especially in situations of stress or during sleep.

The Custom Comfort NiteGard® consists of a clear soft plastic that one wears to relieve tooth grinding and clenching when asleep. This night mouth guard fits comfortably over either the upper or lower teeth only. It is 3mm thick and will allow an individual to completely close their mouth while asleep, unlike other bruxism mouth guards. The night guard is made of exactly the same material dentists/orthodontist use to prepare their devices for patients with bruxism.

The cost of a nightguard prepared by a dentist/orthodontist will range from $250.00 to $600.00. It is smaller and much more comfortable than the “boil & bite” nightguard types found at the store, due simply because they are specifically customized to that particular individual.

Dental Lab Direct will save those individuals hundreds of dollars by providing them with the Custom Comfort NiteGard® “Personal Impression Kit” for bruxism treatment. This kit will instruct exactly how to take one’s own teeth impression. The kit will also provide a SASE (Self Addressed Stamped Envelope) to deliver it to the NeonBrite dental lab, which will be returned usually within a week. 


UNTIL RECENTLY, customized dental appliances were available to the public only through your dentist.  This was largely due to the level of skill in taking one’s teeth impression, the impression required to cast a mold and form customized tooth whitening trays.  Most dentists send teeth IMPRESSION  trays to dental labs to be cast and molded, & finally customized into form fitting trays delivered back to the patient a few days later.  Typically, the cost for upper & lower whitening trays range between $300.00 and $800.00!

Today, with the advent of NeonBrite’s Personal Impression Kit, it’s possible to take one’s own teeth impression with detailed step by step photo instructions, usually taking less than five minutes for both the upper and lower teeth.  Our kit along with your impressions are then sent via a Postage Paid Envelope to our lab…the same lab local dentists use, yet costing 60-90% less by “skipping” the dentist…eliminating the need for a D.D.S. to fit a professional dental mouthpiece.

Teeth Whitening Tray


My name is Robert S. Owen; I'm the managing partner for a new concept in orthodontics called Dental Lab Direct is the new front-end for a dental lab of 30 years that has serviced over 800 dentists and orthodontists.

Dentists charge anywhere from $300 to $800 dollars for Professional Tooth Whitening, and are doing extremely well at those exorbitant prices.  Our company provides the EXACT same service, but at half the cost, by doing our at-home tooth whitening system. Our service is an excellent alternative to the DENTIST'S CHAIR!

The average is cost is $160, and the dentists charge $300 to $800!  The reason we're able to do this is in the processing.  We’ve done work for over 800 dentists/orthodontists for 30+ years.

Because we are a lab, we've the capability for other products like Tooth Aligners (Invisible Braces) Invisible Retainers, Bruxism Devices (Night Guards), Snoring Appliances, Temporary Bridges (Partial Dentures) and Athletic mouth guards (much like professional athletes use)...All for a similar price!  There are other technical superiorities, too many to list...I know we have the BEST on the market!  When you look closely, you'll feel the same way.

Who would WANT to take a trip to the dentist & who wouldn't want neon bright white teeth?

·   Look for active ingredient of Carbamide Peroxide, not Hydrogen Peroxide.

·   Ensure that the compound has a Fluoride Ion to strengthen the tooth.

·   Ethical FDA regulated manufacturers produce strengths from 10% to 22%.
(Bleach strengths of 9% or lower are not practical due to low efficacy and slow whitening process i.e., OTC strips, wands, etc.)
(Bleach strengths of 23% or higher are unsafe and may cause extreme sensitivity or be a fraudulent 'garage-brewed' formula.)

·   People with known sensitivities should use for 30 minutes maximum.

·   Compute the amount of gel you receive by checking the size and number of syringes. (Disregard claims about the number of whitening applications since they can be extremely exaggerated.)

·   Look for non-glycerin formula for faster whitening and lower sensitivity.

·   Choose high viscosity (thick and sticky) gel for the fastest whitening.

·   Do not expose to heat and direct sunlight.

·   Do not freeze, but you may refrigerate.
