This lovely lady in her early 30's had severe wear of her front teeth, in fact more than 40% biting edge wear. The wear is caused by excessive night time teeth grinding and clenching. Unfortunately, her teeth appeared much older than she was. The other downside of this destructive bite/grinding pattern is premature wear and aging of the back teeth as well.
This lovely young lady in her late 20’s, was concerned about her smile. Her teeth were mildly crowded, discoloured, mottled with dental hypoplasia and she had multiple failing dental white fillings. The goal for her treatment was a beautiful smile, with straighter, whiter teeth.
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.
