I felt weird going to this dentist office because everyone there (except the dentist) is younger than my filing from 1979. The young people are personable and respectful.
If you are a techie, you will like the dentist; he gets excited about dental technology and loves to talk about it. He took 3D pictures of my tooth. The old filing had big cavity behind it, so 50% of the tooth above the gum line had to go. He then took another set 3D pictures. These two sets of pictures were then inputted into a on-site computer controlled lathe where a porcelain block was chiseled into perfectly fit replacement. The replacement fit like a glove. Old filing gone, cavity gone, and the tooth looks like it has been perfectly preserved since forever.
The staff is good at managing my insurance. I will be back in a few weeks (January). This is about a filing from 1976.... anyone remember the first Rocky movie?
