Sarasota Smile Makeover Leaves Patient in "Awe" of Dental Technology


“Sticker shock.” That is the best way to describe my impression after the initial consultation with Dr. Morris and the office manager, Stacy. After a thorough no-cost exam with X-rays and a CT scan, I was told that my teeth were ground down to nubs and a full mouth rehabilitation would be required. They explained that all my teeth would need to be crowned to include “crown lengthening and opening the bite.” Two terms I’d never heard before. The whole process was overwhelming and inconceivable.

Ceramic (Implant) Restoration to Prevent TMJ and Other Disorders

Ceramic Implant Restoration to Prevent TMJ and Other Disorders
When a tooth is lost due to trauma, decay or periodontal disease the surrounding bone material immediately becomes compromised.
