While on this "Cooling Off" period let me share some

 

Tips and Tricks

 

I have found these disposable shade tabs a blessing.  They are a wonderful comunication tool to use for a very reasonable price I think they come in packages of 10 for only a Buck.  Can't beat that deal;-)  

 

Whenever I want a white, monochromatic, and lifeless crowns I send my trusty disposable shade tab.  

 

My concern with lab techs is they sometimes want to be a Rembrandt or a Da Vinci!  I don't want that!  I do not need incisal translucency!  

 

Patient desires are my primary concern. So when my patient shows me cartoons of what a smile should look like, it is not up to me or the lab to create nature. In cases like these this is when the disposable tabs come in handy.  I am a retailer so if you want more info Email me.

It is understandable..no one needs that kind of pressure.

I would like to sincerely apologize.  I admit I have lashed out.  I am truly sorry. 

I have been under some stress having received letters this month from the CSP under the direction of the AAP, and one from the CDA under the direction of the ADA with threats against my livelihood my dental license with copies to the dental board for reasons directly and indirectly related to this case and my use of LANAP.

This is a good contest..keep it clean and easy going. Your are all, I am sure, great clinicians, with different approaches to prosthetics. This is a good way to share ideas and learn from each other.

IMO some of these cases the lab should be given credit for the work.  Unless the preps are shown.  Anyone can slap on chiclete white porcelain.

Kevin,  If I were you I would want to see the preps and the original pics.  Look closely.  Could photoshop been used??
Comment by john McAllister on March 15, 2011 at 10:54pm

Kevin,  Is this a rigged competition?  Are you wasting our time?

Next year 
I just wanted to share my first case with the new "Chicle-Neers" porcelain. Normally, I''m not a fan of no-prep veneers, but this is a system that provides superior esthetics to other no-prep systems, and its totally reversible!

See what you think!
