It’s happened again…
While wrapping up a session with a client who had chosen a SmileBond restoration, we finished polishing, sat her up, and handed her a mirror.  There was eager anticipation, then surprise, and then – Tears of Joy!

This restoration is a very dramatic before and after result, and frankly even I was surprised. The front two teeth (central incisors) were both previously placed crowns by another dentist.  The incisors were somewhat asymmetrical and not quite the same color, but the client was unable to proceed with remakes at that time.  As a result, we were working on the next few lateral teeth, to balance out color and symmetry.  So, I was not expecting miracles.  We diligently did our thing – and Wow!, the results were stunning.  (Go figure.  I’ve only been doing this for 15 years, and even I can take for granted the power of designed smile enhancements with SmileBond restorations).
When one feels confident of one’s smile, the (7th cranial nerve) muscles can relax and participate fully in joyous facial expression.  Prior to treatment, our client’s exact words were: “Oh – I never smile with my teeth.” (Meaning: “I never smile showing my teeth.”).  How sad is that?  She is an attractive and affable lady.  So when she saw her balanced, improved/restored smile, the impact was instant, and thrilling.  The SmileBond process provided our client the final piece of the puzzle, to unlock the hidden beauty of her smile.

We just completed another SmileBond make-over.  This one involved eight upper front teeth and was notable because of uneven and asymmetrical tooth positions, as well as moderate to severe underlying localized staining.  The process took a relaxed 3.5 hours with several “stand-up-and-stretch” breaks.  Again we achieved stunning results with another true transformation, exceeding our collective expectations.  We are so pleased to be able to offer this life-changing service!  This client had described lifelong problems and dissatisfaction with her teeth and yet, in one restorative SmileBond session, the transformation was complete!  (The staff happily dubbed March 2011 as “Sleeping Beauty Month” because some of our wonderful clients have “awakened” to the joy of a beautiful smile, and will now allow their hidden inner and outer beauty to shine with confidence, because of SmileBond Systems).

Time Flies When…
It’s hard to believe that we’ve already completed the first quarter of 2011. Here are a few recent updates regarding the SmileBond business model:

  • We were invited to demonstrate SmileBond Systems for a major US-based international dental products manufacturing company.  Conversations with one of their reps lead to meetings with their new products director and an exchange of non-disclosure agreements.  I was then flown out to company headquarters for a facilities tour and to present a live demonstration of the SmileBond process.  Because of differing long-term objectives, we’ve mutually agreed not to proceed, but my sense of purpose and excitement for the continuing development of the SBS business model was greatly enhanced.  Meetings have been scheduled with other interested parties as we seek to build a team approach for making the joys of SmileBond Systems available to a worldwide market.
  • We have also been granted trademark rights for the SmileBond Systems name and logo.  Kudos to owner Bob Bishop, and graphic artist Brad Douglas of Future Media of Okemos MI on a fabulous job of logo and website design.  I can’t help but smile every time I see the SmileBond logo.  I think it turned out perfectly and instantly expresses what SmileBond Systems is all about.
  • Also, our second SmileBond technical patent request is currently under review by the US Patent Office.  It can take up to two years to complete this process and we are about half way through it.  We have also secured foreign patent rights on this second patent idea.
  • Again, thanks to all our SmileBond clients who prove the benefits of SmileBond restoration every day, and for all of you who have read my blogs.  Your comments are very much appreciated.  If we can be of service to you and your loved ones, please contact us.   If you have questions about SmileBond Systems or dentistry in general, post them to our blog or send an email, and we will try a Q&A format if that is helpful.

Healthy Smiles,

Dr. Bill

  • Carole says:

    When I was about 12 years old, I chipped the inside lower edges of my top two front teeth, making an inverted “v” between them at the bottom. In my mid-30s I finally had my dentist bond fill the chips to restore my teeth to look natural. They looked great. Over the last 30 years since the initial bonding, I’ve had the bonding fixed a few times due to damage from a fall, from it separating from the teeth, from coffee/tea discoloration (less than a cup a day). The bonding material and my teeth are again stained and the bonding is separating again. I last had it repaired about a year or so ago. The procedure is not painful and it goes fast, but how many years / how much wear and tear should a 64 year old woman expect to get out of “standard dental bonding” please? Any advice? I’ve read about your SmileBond process on your website.
