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.

Pretty front teeth

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:

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.

As I have been recently ordering my dental supplies through Synergy the biggest advantage has been the price savings.  I’m averaging close to 20% savings on the same exact products.  Let me say that again…..20% on the same stuff!!  It comes in about the same amount of time, in a different shipping box.  That’s the only difference.  Read more about Synergy Dental.

Front teeth with Fractured Bonding

Charlotte cosmetic dentist, Charlotte dentistry, Charlotte NC Dentist, Cosmetic Dentist in Charlotteon October 22nd, 2010Comments Off on Front teeth with Fractured Bonding

Here’s another view of these teeth.  You can see some of the fractured bonding, but more importantly, look at the relation of the top and bottom teeth and the inward angulation of the top teeth.  The primary reason these teeth, and the bonding that is on them, continue to fracture is a ‘tooth-positional’ problem.  They are in the wrong place.  So the obvious solution would be to move edge of the top front teeth OUT, and the edge of the bottom front teeth IN.  This would position these teeth more ideally, so that when we restored them with veneers they would function properly and last a long time.  Would you consider orthodontics if you were in this situation??

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!

Dental Purchasing Group

For those of you involved in the dental industry, here’s a quick story. I had been purchasing my dental supplies for years and years from one of the ‘big’ dental supply companies. I really liked my dental rep, but the company basically treated my like dirt. Anyway, along comes Synergy Dental. They’re a group purchasing organization that has gotten special pricing from Darby Dental Supply, Brasseler USA, Orascoptic, and others. Anyway, I’ve already saved a bunch of money just by ordering the SAME supplies through them. You really should check it out.

And FYI, I have NO financial interest in the company at all.

Final ortho bonding

….and the laterals were bonded to close the spaces and make ideally-sized teeth:

And here’s the other side, with a much smaller original-sized tooth, and the bonding afterwards:
