So this piece of a crown was broken, and we needed to get the patient fixed up as quickly as possible.

The solution? We quickly re-bonded the piece back into place.

This was a tough deal. This poor man was on a camping trip with his kids in the middle-of-nowhere when his porcelain crown broke. He managed to slip it back into place and showed up to see us with the piece in hand.

New bonding

This tooth needed to look better.  We ruled out a crown or veneer, and rebonding the edge was the most conservative treatment.  The other teeth have some dramatic characterization so this was a tricky procedure.  But, when we finished, the patient was excited about the final result.

A fun day of boating led to this cracked tooth.  There was no hot, cold, or bite sensitivity so it became and esthetic issue.  What was the best course of action to quickly repair this tooth?

Here’s a different view of the old crowns.  You can see the spacing that recently developed and was a concern for the patient and me.

So again….let’s clean a little bit of the cavity out and see what’s hiding inside these teeth.  There’s ALWAYS more than you’d think!

Virus? Not me!

I recently had to have my laptop ‘scrubbed’ because of a virus. Now, I am VERY careful about sites I visit, try not to download any suspicious software, and run anti-virus software on a constant basis.  So how did I end up with a virus? Near as we can tell, it was from Facebook.  I have been contacted by some friends from college, and the added interaction has spelled more time on the site.  Here’s a quick read on the subject:  Facebook virus
