06/04 - ULTIMATE MAKEOVER

Hardly a day in the office goes by without our patients inquiring about the results seen on shows like “Ultimate Makeover” and “The Swan”. These shows, and others like them, have delivered a very strong message to the American public – that cosmetic dentistry is not only a beauty enhancing vehicle, but a methodology through which one’s entire persona can be transformed.

It is a wonderful feeling to see how our cosmetic patients smile more broadly each and every time they come into our office. We love hearing the numerous reports on how their new veneers, their whitening procedures, or even their simple tooth reshaping procedures have been a cause for positive change in their lives.

You needn’t be paraded before the television cameras to achieve the dramatic oral results seen on Ultimate Makeover” and “The Swan”. Our office provides a private personal setting in which you can reap the rewards of the new smile you’ve wanted for years. Feel free to visit the Smile Gallery on this site or call us for a complete cosmetic consultation.
