Whatever service you’re providing, the faster you can make the patient happy, the more viable your practice will be. Yes, of course there are other considerations, like the functionality of the restorations. And the patient’s health is the paramount concern. But when those points are covered well and you’re ready to place the restoration you’ve either prepared in your dental lab or had manufactured for you, the patient is still not going to be happy until the restoration looks perfect.
Even if it fits well and does its intended job, if it doesn’t look right, the patient is going to come back. Each repeat visit is going to slow up the patient volume through your office and down goes your profitability.
We recently talked about speeding things up chairside with our products, and in the past we’ve talked about speeding up the production line by sometimes eliminating steps or making processes faster. In this realm, appearance, we also excel.
Delivering Ni-Cr or Cr-Co Alloys, Porcelain and even Hard Gold Alloy
When you’re going to place a restoration like a hard gold alloy crown, you’ll find your polishing time cut much shorter than you might expect with our product called Brilliance. There are plenty of polishing pastes on the market but as usual, we’ve made this one different and better. It’s made of specially designed diamond particles in a very unique matrix. It’s formulated to make the most of the contact between the soft bristle brush you’ll be using and the restoration. It’s also formulated to minimize flyaway. That’s not necessarily a quality concern but if there’s less mess, your vision of the restoration is better and that should save you even more time.
Your polishing movements get the biggest result in the shortest time.
So how does this make the patient happy? You can produce beautifully polished restorations in no time. When the patient sees them in their perfectly finished state, there will be no concerns about appearance. You ensure that the fit and function are perfect and that patient is done.
You can’t always measure the return on investment for every dental lab supply you have on hand, but in the case of Brilliance, you might. If you are able to polish each restoration for a shorter time, and you run ten cases a day through your lab, you save perhaps five hours of work each week. That’s up to 260 hours of personnel time per year. Times whatever you pay your skilled staff. This is definitely a product that is going to return far more, in financial terms, than it could ever cost.
So you become more profitable at each end – in the lab, with faster production and chairside, with instant patient happiness with brilliant appearance of restorations your providing.
