An instantaneous smile: Is Same Day Teeth right for you?

The process for a new smile doesn’t happen overnight, or does it? In the past, the only option dental implant patients had was to go through multiple in-office appointments over the course of many months before permanent implants could ever be placed and loaded. But with today’s advancements in digital technology, implant supported smile makeovers… Read More

Dental commercials: Should you believe the hype?

You’ve seen the commercials — the ones that remind you of the diligent dental regiment you need for great, long lasting teeth. But do those recommendations actually work? It’s time to stop believing the hype and get to know the truth about the priorities you need to have when it comes to your dental health…. Read More


A dentist for men

Most men won’t willingly go to the doctor. Majority of men aren’t eager to have their aches and pains evaluated. Most men have no interest in having their teeth cleaned regularly — that’s what they made toothbrushes for, right? Those are general statements about my own gender, but they are fact based. For whatever reason,… Read More


The dotted line between oral health and overall health

There is no separation between oral health and overall health. While your primary physician isn’t responsible for evaluating your gums, and your dentist isn’t responsible for analyzing your blood work, there are clear connections between what’s happening inside your mouth and what’s happening to the rest of your body. We’ve put together the conditions and… Read More

While we all begin our career as dentists with the same education and training, the way we practice and approach dental health can differ. So, how do you identify the dentist that’s right for you?

Say NO to temporary crowns!

When I say the word crown, what comes to mind? I’d like to think I was wrong, but I assume anxiety immediately starts to set in.  Visions of relatives and friends with that dark gum line begin to surface. You remember the stories of people on vacation who had a temporary crown that kept falling… Read More


Say YES to dental crown alternatives!

I’ll be honest – earlier in my career there were fewer options to fix teeth. For general dentistry fillings you got either a silver-mercury tooth filling or a resin plastic composite tooth filling. And, if a filling wasn’t an appropriate treatment option – whether it be a dental financing reason or dental insurance reason, you… Read More


Why do I need a dental crown anyways?

I hear time and time again in my top-rated Raleigh, NC aesthetic dental practice:   “Doc, why can’t you just refill it?”, which usually pertains to a tooth that has a large 3 or 4 surface filling that either, has decay, or fracturing in the tooth supporting the fillings.     My response is: “I… Read More
