Before and After...
Trevor ?
after prop  



I have worked at Hornseth and Curless Dental for almost 20 years and see many dental traumas. One of those happened to our family. My son, Trevor celebrated his 8th birthday with a laser tag party. Trevor got hit directly in the mouth with the laser gun.  His two front teeth were fractured off 3 mm x 4 mm. The teeth were mobile and very sensitive but no root canals were needed. 
Dr. Hornseth placed composite fillings on these teeth as seen in the before picture. He knew as a young adult he would need veneers.

The summer of his senior year, Trevor had his 4 front teeth treated with 2 veneers and 2 crowns by Dr. Curless. He is pleased with the way they look. He feels very confident and he enjoys the compliments he receives with his new smile.

Clinpro 5000 Anti-Cavity ToothpasteClinpro

Our office takes pride in dispensing the newest products to help prevent tooth decay and remineralize the tooth. Clinpro 5000 will replace Fluoridex and MI Paste Plus toothpaste in our office.  Clinpro 5000 takes the best of these two products (5000 ppm fluoride in Fluoridex, plus calcium and phosphate for remineralization in MI Paste Plus).  The formula is an easy to use, tasty toothpaste that you brush with for two minutes and spit out. Try not to rinse or all the benefits of the toothpaste get washed away.
