This 49 year old male came to us mostly concerned about his crooked teeth and crossed bite. The smile line was also uneven and the tooth colour a little dark.
Certainly, members of my team, as well as many of my patients know I love to tell “Dad jokes”. Some get the roll of the eyes, but usually always a smile, if they haven’t gone right over the head of the poor, captured listener.
Anyhow, coming to a screen near you in the near future, I will be making a guest appearance on Disney’s Hanging With, where my daughter, Ashleigh is a co-host with Tim. Last year I was asked to help out with International Dentists’ Day, and I must have done something right, as they asked me back for a segment for Daddy/Daughter Day.
This lovely lady came to us requested a natural smile, with whiter colouring and changes to the teeth proportions as well as a request to even out the colour.
This bubbly, vivacious young woman, in her early 20s, had a ‘gummy’ smile with very weak teeth. Her teeth were so weak that pieces would chip off and she suffered nightmares worrying about her teeth. The patient was also embarrassed and unhappy with her smile. Her directive to our younger dentist, Dr Andrew Peterson, was that she wanted to strengthen her teeth and restore them to how she remembered them when she was younger.
