And here’s the results. It didn’t take long, wasn’t too expensive, and made a dramatic difference in the final appearance of these two teeth.
After whitening we placed crowns on some front teeth DRAMATICALLY improving their appearance! But….can you tell which teeth have the crowns and which are natural??? Look closely…..
Here’s a nice case. This sweet lady had wanted to fix her front teeth for years but could never get the nerve up. Finally she decided it was time. This is what the teeth looked like before hand:
The NC Dental Society is sponsoring a free dental clinic this summer here in Charlotte. This is a fantastic effort by organized dentistry to help those truly in need. Watch the video and you’ll want to help too!
Yes, there really IS a difference in where you get your dental supplies. I can order the SAME EXACT products through Darby Dental (which is who Synergy has contracted with) only they’re SUBSTANTIALLY less money. And as an added bonus, the reps are extremely knowledgeable. In fact, if they don’t have the answer to a particular question they’ll often 3-way call the manufacturer and get the answer…..right then. You can’t beat it. Read more about Synergy dental here.
I’ve been working on a video for the website. Stay tuned for more details!
This sweet lady had been seeing another dentist for many years, but continues to have problems with her front teeth. The bonding she has on these teeth continues to periodically fracture and has started to look bad. She wanted to know her alternatives, as she is tired of continually having these teeth broken and repaired. Look at how they meet the bottom teeth. What would you see as your possible options?
The easiest, fastest way to at least temporarily fix this tooth was some bonding. Yes, it will DEFINITELY need a more definitive restoration (a crown) in the near future. But this will get him out the door and looking presentable!
And here’s the other side, with a much smaller original-sized tooth, and the bonding afterwards:
The second option is for the orthodontist to move the laterals into the middle of the space. The restorative dentist can then create ideally sized teeth. This gives the orthodontist the correct proportions for all the front teeth and allows the orthodontics to be finished without worrying about leaving spaces that are exact. However, it is a more difficult task for the restorative dentist.
