Fun 8am Friday Morning Teeth Whitening Appointments :-)))

Teeth whitening is very popular. I whitened these patient’s teeth this morning and wanted to share these photos. It’s always a lot of fun :-))) I have embeded a video below explaining the procedure. Please feel free to call or email me if you have any questions.  We need to clean your teeth and check for any cavities before doing the whitening.

For a brighter, whiter smile I use Opalescence Boost, an in-office, chemically activated whitening treatment that offers results in about an hour. It’s ideal for people who want instant whitening gratification or those who have that special event coming up that requires a bright, white smile.

  • Opalescence tooth whitening gel contains PF (potassium nitrate and fluoride)
  • Chemically activated, so no hot, uncomfortable light is needed
  • Dentist-applied treatment
  • Provides dramatic results in one hour


Dental implant case of the day

This patient presented with a broken off upper right bicuspid tooth. The tooth was extracted and implant placed. Following healing I delivered a beautiful computer designed-3D printed, screw retained zirconia/titanium implant abutment and crown- awesome!!!

Dental Implant Bridge Case of the Day

For this implant bridge case I digitally scanned in the impression of his teeth, implant abutments, and bite. Then computer designed and 3D printed out the bridge. Then screwed it into his mouth. Turned out perfect and the patient was very pleased :-)))

Broken dental implant case

This patient presented with a broken lower implant. I originally restored this implant crown a few years ago, and I was quite surprised and curious as to why it broke. This is very rare, and I used all the best, highest quality, Swiss made, Straumann Implant parts. The implant porcelain crown and titanium abutment broke apart leaving the screw still in the implant. She clenches and grinds her teeth, but still, this should not have occurred. I redid the implant crown and did not charge the patient. These are the clinical pictures:
