Can you see me? I am holding up my hand. I'll tell you why if you continue reading this post.
I looked forward to going to the dentist yesterday.
As I walked into the office I was greeted by these 3 big smiles. I always enjoy seeing each of them.
This is my dentist. He is getting ready to do a CEREC crown on one of my teeth.
This is a 3 dimensional view taken with a special camera on the computer screen. Now he will use his skill to build a crown that will fit in my mouth.
This is the almost completed image ready to be made into a cap.
My crown is being made in this top machine in 8 minutes.
While my crown was being created my friend Char who I had not seen in a long long time came in from a different operatory and we each got our calendars out and made a dinner date for next week.
I heard the word PERFECT when it came out of the machine. It fit perfectly between my other two teeth. Within minutes it was cemented in my mouth and I was on my way home with a brand new crown in less than an hour.
No temporary, no wait for 2 weeks to see if it fit and possibly had to be made again.
As I started to leave I met two more of my smiling favorite people who work there.
I always stop in the front office to see two more of my favorite people. Look at those big smiles.
I like to think my dentist inherited some of his artistic skill required to make a perfectly fitting crown on the computer from me.
The rest of the office staff are no relation, just the best office staff in an dental office anywhere.
