My latest article published in The Journal of The New York State Academy of General Dentistry.
This patient was told by his dentist that his lower front broken incisor tooth could not be saved, and only option was to extract it. He came to me for a 2nd opinion. This is how I saved his tooth:
This patient had spaces between her lower teeth that could not be corrected with orthodontics. So I fixed her spaces with dental implants.
This patient wanted a younger youthful smile for his 60th birthday. So I made him 6 beautiful porcelain crowns for his upper front teeth. This cell-phone video shows me placing the crowns. He was very happy :-)))
I took a 3D digital computer scan of his teeth and gums, and we computer designed his smile beautiful new teeth and 3D printed out his 6 teeth crowns.
This nice lady came to me to fix her teeth so she could smile again. I made her porcelain crowns for her 4 upper anterior teeth. Quick and easy and looks great!!!
I use the state-of-the-art, most advanced, 3Shape Trios digital scanner. This eliminates the need for unpleasant traditional gooey impressions—no more messy goop in your mouth! With our computerized digital 3D scanner, we can digitally capture a detailed, 3D model of your teeth and gums. Not only is our digital scan far more comfortable than the old putty-based impressions, but it’s faster and provides images that are more precise. We definitely make a great first impression.
With this computerized model of your mouth we can computer design your teeth restorations and orthodontic aligners and 3D print them out. Totally awesome!!!
This patients upper teeth were badly decayed and could not be saved. I extracted all her upper teeth and made an immediate denture. Next I will work on her lower teeth.
