The results are truly amazing. I still can’t believe what a beautiful smile I have, and it’s been a year now.
Dear Dr. Anderson, Thank you so much for what you did for me! The change in my mouth, in my appearance, is unbelievable.
I have been very self-conscious about my smile for my whole 49 years- as a child, it was because my teeth were too little and my gums showed too much. In my mid 20's I had extensive periodontal surgery- my gums didn't show anymore( they all got cut off!) but I had these huge spaces between my teeth where my gums used to be. After that surgery, although I took meticulous care of my teeth, the appearance was terrible. See more
I almost... almost ...made a mistake and had another dentist do this work. I stopped seeing Dr. ... Anderson when I moved to the Worcester area, and found a local dentist. The office sold me on the idea of cosmetic dentistry- the "sale" was very professionally done by several members of the staff ...frequent contacts ...photos mailed to me ...computer-generated images of what my smile would look like, etc. I did the whitening ...had the impressions made ...but something made me hesitate before we actually began with the procedure, and I called Dr. Anderson and requested a consult because I had ultimate trust in him and in his work. We met, and I knew immediately that I almost made a terrible mistake. Dr. Anderson went through an incredible amount of "Pre- Work" including measuring, checking angles, my bite and I don't know what else. All I know is that he took hours doing things that other dentists never bothered to do.
All I kept thinking was two things: #1- this is a big financial investment- I want it to be good. #2-if it's not good, if it's not perfect- well, I'm going to have to look at it and live with it for the rest of my life… and have regrets every single day about spending all that money on something I may not be happy with. I decided I wanted a perfectionist to do this work. I only knew one.
We went forward and Dr. Anderson "did" 10 of my teeth, on the top. The results are truly amazing. I still can't believe what a beautiful smile I have, and it's been a year now. People I don't know comment about my smile. Once, a dental hygienist stopped me on the street to talk about my teeth and once I told her, she wanted to have a closer look- she was really impressed with the work. My own periodontist and his hygienists are impressed. THAT'S when you know someone did an awesome job- when his peers are impressed!
People I know and work with were funny- they knew something was different about me (hair? makeup?) but weren't sure what. They knew I looked good. Of course, I eventually told them, and also told them WHO did it. But the point is that although my teeth are beautiful, they are very natural looking too. You don't look at my face and see TEETH- disproportionately large, or white, or angled wrong, or whatever. They look great, but they don't look fake. All I can say is that they look awesome.
I have no regrets. Well, maybe one. I wished that I had done this 20 years ago. I just couldn't be happier with my teeth and my smile and my dentist. Thank you Dr. Anderson. You have made a big difference in my life.
