Simple Inexpensive Cosmetic Dentistry

Sweet patient concerned with dark tooth which was treated with a root canal in the past. This was easily treated with internal bleaching over three quick visits and a filling to close the access opening. What fun is this !

Sometimes, A Little Stress is a Good Thing

Galvanized When George Martin first met the Beatles and became their producer, he liked their sound and their energy, but he didn’t think they could write songs. So he licensed a song, handed it to them and had them record it. John and Paul hated doing this, so they asked if they could write one. That became their first hit. […]

Shomari is a great guy. His case was one of the most challenging ones I have encountered. Although jaw surgery and extended orthodontics followed by restorative dentistry was a good option, he could not justify the time or cost.

Drive your own rode – Take charge

Along for the ride Like the pilot says, “sit back, relax, and enjoy the flight.” When you’re on one of those Disneyland boats, it takes you where Disney wants you to go. That’s why you got on. And so you are lulled, a spectator, merely a tourist. So different, isn’t it, from driving yourself, choosing your own route and owning […]
