  Debbie had always been afraid to show her smile. She had always wanted to fix her teeth, but she was short on time and had a limited budget….   Good thing she met me.   After a consultation, Debbie was ready to have a smile she can be proud of! We removed the cavities and internal silver fillings, and prepared the teeth as conservatively as we could. Our expert staff then scanned her teeth using a digital impression. No putty, no mess, no gagging! We Read more […]

Why Large Fillings Don’t Work

Posted by & filed under 3D Printing, Cosmetic Dentistry, EDUCATIONAL, Fillings, SAME DAY CROWNS.


Today’s post is an important topic that has come up a lot in my offices. It is more educational than it is entertaining. Sorry.                          Tooth colored fillings, known as ”composites”, are one of the major advancements in modern cosmetic dentistry. For a small cavity or a chip on one of your front teeth, composites can be a perfect fix. They can look natural, and a tooth colored filling does not need a lot of additional drilling to put one Read more […]

WHAT IS ZOOM! WHITENING? ZOOM! WHITENING is one of the most well-known IN-OFFICE whitening systems. You’ve probably seen it on TV shows, like Keeping Up with the Kardashians, Extreme Makeover, and The Swan. ZOOM! has been around longer than most whitening systems. Our offices have been using it for over a decade. In my opinion, and in the opinion of the majority of the top cosmetic dentists, it remains the ”gold standard” for same-day whitening (there are other very effective multi-visit ”deep Read more […]

Quick Blurb on Same Day Crowns

Posted by & filed under 3D Printing, Cosmetic Dentistry, Fillings, Our Office, SAME DAY CROWNS.


You keep hearing or reading about me discussing the benefits of a Same Day Crowns. I just wanted to show you a before and after of a recent case. The patient had an old silver filling, which broke out (luckily, it didn’t do more damage) and had a lot of decay under the filling. Before Same Day Crown technology, this was an obvious crown case for a dentist. Old fashioned crowns involve drilling the tooth down in all directions. Unfortunately, there is not much tooth structure left if a Read more […]

We received a beautiful testimonial/email from Joe T. I really feel like his experience gives a nice survey of a few of the key procedures we perform at our offices. It also shows how our procedures, equipment, and technology really can make a huge difference. Joe was kind enough to allow us to share his X Rays and images. Here it is:   ” At 10pm on a Saturday night my tooth started aching. It was hypersensitive to anything cold that i put in my mouth. I texted Dr. Gabe and asked Read more […]

Are You My Victim?

Are You My Victim? Terrible motto for a dental office, but the title of a brilliant book by author/artist Richard Moore of Robot Chicken and The Legendary Vlad fame.   Richard was nice enough to give our office a shout out in his latest masterpiece. We do want to mention that we take pride in providing gentle dentistry in a calm and relaxing environment. No scary gigantic drills, like the one seen in this picture 🙂 Read more […]
