When I design a smile for my patients, I obtain study models and photographs. Designing the smile truly begins when my staff and I speak to the patient.
We can see the possibilities and just as an architect envisions a concept and then executes the thoughts on paper, we develop the new smile with wax on stone models.
I enjoy my vision with private laboratories located in the USA. Aaron Darvish of Pearl Dental Studios http://pearldentalstudio.com is a ceramist and artist. He and I work together to achieve the smile makeovers that my patients receive with their crowns and veneers. He has helped me deliver smiles to my patients.
I have used his laboratory for single unit crowns and also smile makeovers. It is has been especially helpful to have this laboratory located in Massachusetts. Aaron and I meet and discuss the complicated patient cases so that the patient is given the best result that he and I can deliver.
In my cases, my ceramist is armed with as much information that I can provide. Utilizing quality digital photography enhances our ability to communicate. I even provide the ceramist with a video of the patient speaking so that the ceramist may understand the patients phonetics.
Building a like minded TEAM is critical for optimum patient care. My journey in dentistry has allowed me to develop excellent collaborative relationships with ceramists and specialists.
