"I was on the computer before I even finished looking at the pictures, checking local dental practices out, researching some common cosmetic dentistry procedures. A few weeks later I was in possession of a shiny, new, anchor person type smile. I am so much more aware of my teeth now; I smile and laugh a lot so it’s great to not have to worry about trying to hide something. Thank goodness I took care of my teeth, and went full tilt on the cosmetic dentistry - I don’t regret it one bit, and I think it was the best money I ever spent."
