SERVING LACONIA, CONCORD AND THE LAKES REGION OF NEW HAMPSHIRE
"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’re 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!"
"I had a large space between my front teeth and my teeth were small. I didn't like my smile at all, and I worried that my smile was affecting me professionally. I first came to the Center for Contemporary Dentistry because I needed my teeth cleaned. While I was here, Dr. Patel explained what she could do about making my smile look better. Other dentists had told me I could have something done, but I felt very comfortable and relaxed here. Dr. Patel placed veneers on my upper arch and gave me a necessary bridge to fill in my spaces.
I feel so much better! Everyone at the Center for Contemporary Dentistry is efficient, and they are especially friendly. I have felt known and cared for. I recommend them to a lot of people. Their work has definitely improved my confidence…I never fully smiled before. Now I smile all the time."
"My teeth were breaking down and I was losing enamel. I had horrible tooth decay as a child and I hated having lousy looking teeth. I am an original patient of this practice and so I trust these doctors completely. They are very professional and educated. They keep up on the latest procedures while most dentists don’t. I’ve been going to dentist all my life and no one has been as educated as the Patel’s! Dr. Manisha explained my options …her training at LVI really made a difference. I could tell right away how very informed she is, and that’s important to me.
Dr. Manisha decided to place veneers on my upper arch and now I smile more! I try to laugh more too. That’s important – a good laugh never hurts anyone! I just wish everyone had this opportunity."
"My teeth were worn and short... discolored, cracked. I had one really bad cap that glowed in the dark especially in black light. My teeth looked grey - like old lady teeth!. When I saw pictures of myself, it was disturbing. I knew these procedures were possible from watching the show "Extreme Makeover" and I thought, "You know. I deserve this. I work hard, my kids are grown and I've always done everything for for them. Why not do something for myself?" I have always been a patient of Patel's, so when I made the decision to have it done, I knew I wouldn't go anywhere else. I couldn't have chosen better dentists to finally do the work.
The whole team here is excellent. They were great with the color match and shaping. They use the best products - MAC Veneers. for instance, which are superior to other materials out there. I never second-guessed any of the treatment suggestions because they really know what they are doing! I would tell anyone, "Go for it... don't even hesitate! Do whatever you have to do! This has taken ten years off my age."
"I am a long time patient of this office and I really love it here. They honestly care about you and make you feel like you’re part of their team – part of their family!
I had been self conscious of my smile. I tried not to smile or covered it up. Dr. Patel placed veneers with crowns, not for cosmetic reasons but for the sake of my health. But it has made a tremendous difference in the appearance of my smile, too. My confidence level has gone up – I just had my 30th class reunion and I felt great! I think anyone should who wants to have a better smile should go for it. You’re worth it!"
"I had a permanent tooth pulled and chipped a front tooth as a young child. Even with some dental work at that time it still made me feel a little hesitant, a little like keeping my smile hidden. Over the years I’ve had crowns, root canals, fillings …you name it! During one of my visits, I was looking at the pictures in Dr. Patel’s office. That’s when I first really made note of the changes that could be made. Dr. Jay Patel informed me of what Dr. Manisha Patel could do. It’s amazing! Dr. Patel did veneers –which was the biggest procedure I’ve ever had. My smile looks wonderful! I smile with much more confidence and I smile more often. I really wish I had done it sooner!"
"My smile looked awful…uneven and yellow. I wasn’t at all comfortable with my smile so I didn’t smile often. I think it affected me both socially and professionally. Dr. Patel recommended a full-mouth reconstruction with veneers and a few crowns. The team is great and friendly, and their training makes them very trustworthy!
I am so glad I had this done. I feel good and I have more self-confidence. I don’t mind having my picture taken anymore, (obviously since I’m here for a photo shoot)! I smile more easily. It was well worth it."
"I had a closed-mouth smile: laughing aloud definitely wasn't the first thing I would do in a public situation. My teeth were uneven and weren't what I had hoped for in my smile. I had broken a tooth in elementary school and the "fix" just wasn't good. I never really knew that anything could be done about it, but Dr. Patel noticed that I was self-conscious about my teeth and explained to me what could be done. I was just ready for a change! And this seemed like a great opportunity to do it! We did veneers and crowns on the upper arch.
Dr. Patel is a great doctor. She takes what you want for your smile seriously... she would have loved to do all my teeth. It wasn't what I wanted to do at that time and she respected that. She listens to all your cares and concerns. And what beautiful work!!! It has given me more confidence and I find more reasons to smile everyday!"
"I came to the doctors Patel as a patient because they were young and had a great reputation and I stayed because they're really nice, easy to talk to and excellent doctors. My teeth were actually gnarly before I had my work done and it made me feel a little insecure. I hid behind my mustache and I think I might have actually forgotten how to smile.
I had seen what could be done for your smile in the media and in advertising, and cosmetic dental work has become more affordable so I decided to get something done. Dr Patel place crown and veneers on my teeth. Now, I smile so much more often! I've even shaved off my mustache… I haven't done that for over 20 years!!! I'm on the brink of having an empty nest and now I have even more reasons to smile!"
"I didn't smile in pictures... I TRIED not to smile in pictures! I hadn't been to the dentist for a while and it was time! I had bonding before but it didn't last - it was badly stained and I thought that there was really nothing else that I could do. But I was getting married in June and I didn't want to have that awful smile in my pictures! My wedding was pretty much the deciding factor!
Dr. Patel placed veneers on my upper arch and I smile easily now! I'm actually trying to talk someone into getting it done right now... it's so worth it!!! Being able to smile makes a huge difference!"
"My teeth were half their original size. They were badly worn down by stress and I experienced terrible headaches.
I didn’t even know that I had options – options that could not only change my smile but make me feel good as well. Dr. Manisha took me with her to LVI and performed a complete smile makeover and TMJ treatment. They’re all so sweet and caring, always optimistic and personal. Under their care, I have discovered how much fun it is to smile! I feel more self-confident with my customers – really, I just feel better all over!"
"I hadn’t seen a dentist in 10 years and my teeth were obviously neglected. My front teeth were crooked with a noticeable chip and I was always self-conscious. I never wanted to smile.
I knew there were things that could be done to improve my teeth but I never thought they were an option for me. When I came to see Dr. Patel, she explained all the things that were possible. I had just about everything available done! I had veneers placed on my upper arch, ZOOM! Whitening, cracked teeth fixed any my fillings replaced. Now, I smile a whole lot more!"
"I was an original patient from way back and, Oh, I just never smiled! I was very self-conscious. It was time - a long time ago, to get this work down. I just finally went for it! Dr. Patel convinced me that I wasn't too old to get this done even though I thought I was. Dr. Patel explained everything that I needed to know in full-detail. She is very nice and easy to talk to and explains the pros and cons of everything. The work definitely shows of it. So, first I had orthodontic treatment done, followed by several crowns and bridges after.
Now, I smile more often and more easily. I feel much better about myself - I just wish I had done this 20 years ago! I would tell anyone considering this to just go for it! I've been very happy with everything!"
