October 2020 Smile of the Month
Abigail enjoyed using social media as much as anyone, but she had just one problem, or rather, four—her front teeth. She had hated them for years, and they made her extremely self-conscious. As you can imagine, this makes taking a post-worthy selfie quite challenging! So, she finally decided to do something about it and contacted Lancaster Family Smiles.
After Abigail had a chance to sit down with Dr. Gupta and explain her goals, Dr. Gupta recommended that her teeth be covered with dental crowns. Traditionally, crowns are used to repair severely broken or decayed teeth, but when they are made of lifelike materials like dental ceramic, which perfectly replicate enamel, they can provide a tremendous cosmetic benefit for the smile.
Once they agreed on the treatment, Dr. Gupta got to work designing Abigail’s crowns, which were painstakingly custom-shaded so they matched the rest of her teeth. This ensured that the end result would be as natural-looking as possible while still giving Abigail the improvements she desired.
At first, Abigail was nervous about having her teeth done, but to hear her talk about the experience now, she couldn’t be happier with how things went:
If I could give this place 100 stars, I would! I don’t even know where to begin…I came in with the most insecure smile ever. I never smiled (and was) always ashamed of my front teeth. I went to Dr. Gupta, and I will never go to another dentist again. (She) and her whole staff are the most friendly and educated people! I had a lot of work done due to me having anxiety of (the) dentist. Dr. Gupta has changed my life and smile—I can’t believe I can smile with confidence for the first time in my life. I can’t thank her enough! You have a patient for life!”-Abigail
