Complex Dental Reconstruction
“A smile is the light in someone’s face that tells people you’re at home”
Please share in this heartwarming story of a special patient whose smile and life we have changed, who has changed our lives at Dental Health and Wellness Boston. My assistant and I remember vividly the day we met Siobhan, as she wept with embarrassment and covered her mouth. Her husband was transferred here for business and she would be in the country for only a year. Siobhan is originally from Ireland where prevention and dental care is not at our level, and had a childhood accident that led to the loss of teeth. Her dental condition was quite compromised and complex and required the expertise of specialists and many advanced treatments to bring her to beauty and health.
Her restorative case includes all ceramic crowns and bridges and a Valplast partial …. And her smile design is an example of my Age Defying Dentalift, where her face contours that had collapsed are rejuvenated just by how we created and positioned her teeth . Providing this service to Siobhan and watching her face when she saw her new smile is the reason I love what I do, and gives purpose to why I study so hard to perfect my skills to be the best I can be.
My sincere thanks to Siobhan for allowing me to show these photos and share the letter she gave to me the day she left to return to Ireland.
“Dr. Smith you turned on the light in my face again. No longer do I smile through my eyes, I smile with my whole face and it comes from the confidence you have given back to me. I now have self confidence I never knew I had, a sense that I am good enough and that I too deserve to have people listen to what I have to say. For so long I kept my thoughts to myself because I knew people would have to look at me if I spoke. I felt so ugly.
I truly appreciate your dedication and commitment and sacrifices you have made to bring to me this new person. The day I met you is the day you changed my life. Your kind, gentle and reassuring way always put me at ease.
“A kind heart is a fountain of gladness, making everything in its vicinity freshen into smiles”
