hen we talk about crowns and crowns versus fillings, you have to think about the structure of the tooth. Most of the time if I'm recommending that you have a crown, it's because we need to protect the tooth. A crown sometimes called a cap covers the entire tooth, and we have other videos to show exactly what a crown looks like. But if your filling gets really, really, really big you’ve had filled, then you’ve had it filled again, every time you have that tooth filled, then there's less and less tooth. And if I made a giant filling, you go to eat something and the tooth would just break. Fillings are not meant to support teeth in order for chewing.

Dr. Tamisha Denis: Hello everyone. My name is Dr. Tamisha Denis of Modern Smile and Implant Center.

Initially when you come into the office, we will spend some time talking about what yours needs and your wants are in terms of braces. In her case, what we did is the first time she came in, we discuss the fact that she had a lot of gaps and spaces between her teeth and she wanted to close them.

It not only helps us to see all new ones as of what we have to do in order to fix those gaps and spaces but it also helps to see if she is a candidate for closing her braces with ClearCorrect. .......Read More
ABOUT THIS BLOG
Hi, I’m Dr Tamisha Denis a Dentist here in South Florida. Looks like you’ve found my blog. This is where I write about Patient related stuff about Dentistry.
I try to keep it practical, and tend to focus on the perspective of current and future patients in our practice. You could say the main theme throughout this blog is our Patient formula which is: “I Care + You Care = We Care”. Since “I Care”, my staff and will provide a lot of content that helps fill in the gap of all things Dentistry; and since you care, some if not all of the videos and blogs, you will find interesting. I think it’s incredible to be living in an age where we send out this message and help educate our patients and world about dentistry, and how it relates to them. Given that you are reading on one right now, perhaps you think so too.
