Cosmetic Dentistry and Porcelain Veneers
Before we first met Mary*, she wrote a letter to Dr. Ted Murray. Mary’s letter included the following…
“It is with a mixture of fear and shame that I await my first visit to your office. My extreme dental issues (chipping, fractured, badly worn and missing teeth, etc.) resulting from an adulthood of neglect are impacting my life in a way that cannot be ignored or put off any longer. I fear that a full mouth reconstruction (or worse) is in order.
“I have not enjoyed very positive experiences with dentists. Arguably, the dentists were competent and certainly did no injury, emotionally or physically. But I had the impression that I was very much a “lost cause” as far as they were concerned…”
She felt she was “A LOST CAUSE”. Powerful words.
Course of Treatment for a Worn Down Smile
When Dr. Murray and his assistant Amy, first met Mary, they also learned that Mary was concerned because her teeth were so badly worn down that it was affecting her speech. She expressed that she’d like to get her confidence back.
Thanks to Dr. Murray’s advanced training in cosmetic dentistry and full mouth reconstruction, Mary was given her smile back through an amazing smile transformation using porcelain veneers and crowns:
Not only does she LOVE her new smile, her speech has improved, and thanks to the neuromuscular dentistry techniques, she no longer wakes up in the morning with a headache.
Dr. Murray recently received this note from Mary:
“Dear Dr. Murray, WOW!! Thanks so much for the CD of my super duper beyond fabulous razzle dazzle smile transformation! It was amazing to compare the dismal before with the stunning after… I am speechless- which as you have come to know me, is a rare occurrence. Thank you so much for giving me my smile and my smiling life back!”
