Relationships that can create the most beautiful smiles.

January 4, 2018 by Jamie

If the feelings are mutual, the efforts will be equal.

The best relationships between dental and laboratory technicians are born of mutual respect, each person able to rely on the other to exceed their expectations and and advance their art.
One of the most important relationships a dentist who is aspiring to perform cosmetic dentistry at a top level can foster is the one with the laboratory technician, or ceramist, who creates the porcelain veneers. A dentist who is providing the records for a new smile can fall short of exceeding patient expectations, simply because they have not developed a strong relationship with a talented ceramist. While there are well over a hundred thousand dentists in the United States alone, there are far fewer talented dental technicians who are skilled as artists to make porcelain crowns and veneers look natural, create exceptional fitting veneers, and can communicate with dentists to fulfill patient expectations.

A dentist can not simply choose a talented ceramists, because the top ceramists are busy, expensive and very selective.
A dentist can not simply choose a talented ceramists, because the top ceramists are busy, expensive and very selective. They are looking to work with dentists who are experienced, send impeccable detailed records, and genuinely have a passion for aesthetic dentistry. They want to work with dentists who publish, so their work gets published, they want to work with dentists who take beautiful pictures, so that they can see their completed work on the patient, they want to work with successful dentists who are good communicators, so that their work is not sent back for many adjustments and ultimately get delivered to happy patients.

A Smile Stylist is a dentist who has fostered the type of relationship with a master ceramist in the dental laboratory required to get the best results.
One of the reasons why a patient would want to see a cosmetic dentist, or Smile Stylist, to perform these types of treatments is because of the relationships they have formed with the best dental ceramists. A Smile Stylist is a dentist who has fostered the type of relationship with a master ceramist in the dental laboratory required to get the best results. Most dentists will not perform enough cosmetic dentistry treatments to develop a relationship with a top ceramist. There is a difference between a top ceramist and a dental laboratory. A dentist can send a case to an expensive dental laboratory, but not have the top ceramist working on the case. The best way to know that the ceramist who is creating your smile is one of the best is to work with a dentist who is a Smile Stylist.

It is important to ask a dentist about their relationship with the dental ceramist. The person on the other end who is actually creating the porcelain crowns and veneers to look natural and beautiful. Its not just about the dental laboratory, because dental laboratories have dozens of technicians who create teeth. Creating relationships with master ceramists takes time to cultivate and is tremendously rewarding for dentists, technicians and patients. Look for dentists who publish, are accredited cosmetic dentists, who take beautiful pictures of their work and are good communicators.
