You might remember a blog post recently about a tough kid with a broken tooth. If not, click here to read about Jarad’s dental emergency. It’s pretty scary to break a tooth and have to go see the dentist unexpectedly, but Jarad was pretty optimistic when he came to our office. We like to think he had good reason for his attitude because the only thing we like better than creating a beautiful smile is sharing those smiles in a selfie with our patients.
Check out Jarad’s second visit. That’s Michelle Webber, our Expanded Function Dental Auxiliary (EFDA for short) working on him, with Brenda assisting her. We’re really proud of Michelle getting her EFDA license so that she could do more for our patient’s smiles. When Jarad came in for his second visit, it was exciting to see that the tooth had not changed color and was not painful. That’s great news because it means a root canal may not be necessary! There’s a lot of ways to restore a broken tooth. In Jarad’s case, Michelle went with a chairside veneer.
Here’s what she had to say about it.
As an EFDA, one of my favorite things to do is chairside veneers. So when I create a veneer, I create them with all the love and appreciation that I can. I am looking for symmetry with no margins. I have many colors to play with, but I want the one with the best match. I want it to look like the twin tooth as much as possible and for the patient to be able to smile with confidence. – Michelle Webber EFDA
We didn’t think Jarad could smile any brighter than he did on his first visit but look at him now! You can really see what Michelle means when she says she puts all her love into her work. It’s hard to say who looks happier, Jarad or Michelle!
