Recently, a mother and daughter were looking forward to attending a family reunion. The 80-year old mother, however, was bothered by the space between her front teeth. Her daughter called our office, made an appointment, and brought her mom in for a cosmetic dental consultation. After just two visits that included a little gum reshaping, four veneers, and some Zoom teeth whitening, the mom had a beautiful new smile to show off at the party. She said, “I was so proud of how I looked, and I felt better than ever!” And, that feeling is sure to continue long after the party stories have faded.
With all that can be accomplished with today’s dentistry, what better present can one give than “the gift of a smile?” And with modern materials and techniques, this gift should last a long, long time, bringing lots of joy to both the giver and receiver.
