"My smile got worse as I got older and I became more introverted. I stopped smiling and laughing freely and was careful about what made me smile. I had my own business and did a lot of speaking before I became so self-conscious of my smile. Not being comfortable with the appearance of your teeth is limiting in so many different ways. An associate from work referred me to the Center for Contemporary Dentistry. I’m so glad I took the recommendation. I feel very comfortable here – it’s like you are part of the family, it’s never cold and clinical and you are received like a friend. Everything about your procedures is very well explained. Dr. Patel gave me an implant, veneers and we are working on my larger issues. I didn’t really realize what a weight I was carrying just because of my smile, but now there is a huge weight off my shoulders! I didn’t want to look younger…I just wanted to feel good. And now I do!"
