Looking to improve your smile? It’s easier than you think. You don’t need exuberantly expensive treatments to restore your smile. Our very own Dr. Tim Lin shows us his dental restoration skills with a treatment he did for one of our patients here at Kildonan Crossing Dental Centre. Using simple methods, Dr. Lin was able to bring his patient’s smile back to the forefront.
Kildonan Crossing Dental Centre is excited to share this treatment process with you. His patient had dental caries, commonly known as tooth decay, and he was able to enhance the patient’s smile with basic fillings. Check out what he and his team were able to pull off with just our regular treatments.
Here’s what Dr. Lin’s patient’s teeth looked like before we started the treatments.
The treatment took a few stages. After the diagnosis and treatment plan was decided, Dr. Lin and his team cleaned everything. They temporized* the caries in white, cavity resistant (long-term temporary) restorations which you can see in the next photo.
*Temporization is a standard dental procedure used to create restorations.
Once all his caries were under control, Dr. Lin and the team took their time replacing the temporary fillings with permanent restorations.
It took time and effort but after everything was completed, he had a whole new smile. Here’s his teeth after the restoration treatment was completed.
“My patient’s case wasn’t easy by any means, but it was very simple dentistry we did for him,” says Dr. Lin. “The front teeth are all direct composite I did by hand. The final photo was taken after a final cleaning which helped the gums as well. There wasn’t any whitening done.”
Now, all our patient has to do to maintain his improved smile is come back for regular checkups, and brush and floss his teeth like everyone else.
The treatments went well and we’re all so happy for our patient’s new smile! We can’t be any prouder of what Dr. Lin and his team achieved.
If you are suffering from tooth decay and looking for a dentist who will work hard in fixing your teeth, look no further!
