Roger Smith has been coming to Gateway Oaks Family Dentistry for three years. Him and his dad have been regular visitors of the office and the team enjoys when they come in. Roger’s jokes are endless and always have a way of brightening the team’s day. So when Dr. Truong was given the opportunity to provide cosmetic dental work to one lucky patient, Roger was a no-brainer. (See Roger’s case and other Cosmetic Dentistry cases)
Dr. Truong and Roger teamed up with California Center for Advanced Dental Studies (CCADS) in San Francisco to perform the advanced cosmetic procedure. Roger came in for his first appointment where Dr. Truong consulted with Roger about his expectations, took pictures and impressions.
At Roger’s next appointment in San Francisco the entire team came to watch Dr. Truong prepare his teeth, a procedure where the teeth are made the perfect shape to fit the veneers. Then he was fitted with natural looking temporary teeth. At Roger’s final and long anticipated appointment he was fitted with eight permanent, and beautiful, veneers. As long as Roger maintains good oral hygiene at home and continues to see us for his regular cleanings his veneers will last him a long time.
Q & A with Roger
What has been your experience with Dr. Truong & the Gateway Oaks Family Dentistry Team? Everyone is always professional, informative, enthusiastic, friendly and sincerely caring.
Before your veneers what were your concerns in regards to the way your smile looked? I was hesitant to smile and embarrassed to show my teeth
What was the process like getting veneers? The process was pleasant. The preparation was simple and the measurements were exact. The placement of the veneers was painless and did not take long.
Are you happy with your results? Extremely. I feel more confident and I am no longer hesitant to “show off” my new smile.
What are you most happy about? My top teeth are now straight, even, aligned, and bright!
What is the next step you will take to complete your smile? I’m going to the orthodontist to correct my bottom teeth with braces first and then I will finish with veneers.
