Cosmetic Case of the Day

This 55 years old patient had broken down, fractured, misaligned teeth. I crowned his front teeth to give him a healthly, younger looking smile.

Dental implant case of the day

This patient had spaces between her lower teeth that could not be corrected with orthodontics. So I fixed her spaces with dental implants.

Smile Makeover Case of The Day

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.

3D Computerized Digital Intra-oral Impression Scanning

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!!!

Digital Dentistry

I scan digital impressions of teeth, computer design the crowns, create an STL file, and 3D print out porcelain/zirconia crowns with a CAD-CAM milling machine, that fit perfectly and look beautiful.
