Q: What does “full-service” mean with regards to a catering company?
A: A full-service caterer is one who will handle everything pertaining to food, beverages and service. This entails a site visit to see what the client has in mind, organizing and handling rental orders and assuring rentals are accurate, setting up the rentals and table settings, setting up the buffet and dessert stations with waitstaff to serve guests, handling all beverages and beverage service, and breaking down the event including cleanup.

Q: I’d like to reshape some of my teeth. What are my options?
A: For an esthetically pleasing smile with comfortably functioning teeth, there are several options available, with consideration of function, pulpal (nerve) integrity, symmetry and patient satisfaction. Before reshaping malformed or misshapen teeth, positioning should be evaluated; if teeth aren’t properly aligned, an orthodontist should be consulted beforehand. Tooth reshaping can be achieved by:
1. Removal and polishing of over-contoured enamel
2. Reshaping under contoured teeth with the addition of bonded composite resin filling material
3. Reshaping malformed, damaged or unsightly teeth with selective tooth removal and replacement with porcelain veneers or crowns
