Dental Treatment Case Studies

A smile is worth a thousands words and transcends all languages.

At Dater Dentistry, we take great joy in helping people smile even bigger from enacting various dental procedures. From simple, cosmetic fixes to full reconstructive efforts, we love helping people feel better both inside and out. Here are some of our dental patient case studies that make us smile back in return.

Teeth Damaged from Grinding Restored with Porcelain Crowns

This patient presented with two premolars worn down and missing enamel due to grinding of the teeth. To correct his problem we restored the teeth using two all porcelain crowns. The crowns were designed using CAD/CAM technology and made right in the office. This new technology eliminates the need for more than one appointment. One two hour appointment allows Dr. Dater and his staff to prepare the teeth and then design and make the crowns with this advanced technology.  At the end of the appointment the patient was able to go home with his new crowns permanently in place.


The patient said, “It was great to only have to come in for one appointment to get this done!”

Highly recommend Dr. Dater and staff. I no longer dread going to the dentist EXCEPT for the maize and blue loyalty. I cannot defend MSU when my mouth is full of dental instruments!
