My latest article published in The Journal of The New York State Academy of General Dentistry.
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.
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!!!
computer design and 3D printing/milling out the crown-I filmed these videos with my phone to demonstrate how we do it
This patient presented with a broken 25 year old bridge replacing a missing front tooth. I re-prepped the teeth, digitally scanned the impression, computer designed a new bridge, 3D printed it out and cemented it in. Totally awesome!!!
