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?

And here’s the final result, only a few minutes later.  Look how nicely the shade of the filling blends with his tooth color.  And the little redness at the gumline is from finishing and polishing the filling in this area and should heal uneventfully within a few short days.

This is a quicky, but shows how nice a little bonding can make a big change. These two teeth obviously have cavities at the gumline:

Here’s the result after replacing the old dental work.  Our pretty patient got some new teeth, and a beautiful rejuvenated smile. The shade is clean and bright without being TOO white (like SO many crowns tend to be!!).

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.

This pretty patient had been very happy with the crowns on her front teeth for MANY years.  But recently they started to show signs of aging, and we decided it was time to replace them.  When you look closely, they seem to be angled slightly to one side and there are spaces that have developed between them.

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
