Dan's Story: Restorative Dentistry


Dan explains that before undergoing restorative dentistry treatment, his unconscious teeth grinding habit wore down his smile. Although he first went to Advanced Dentistry of Blakeney for general dental maintenance, the attentive staff was able to identify the issue and the cause quickly. Consequently, they were able to repair the damage before it became too extensive.

My daughter, Lauren, she's worked in several different dental offices and this is the most close-knit, camaraderie-driven firm that she's worked with. A couple of firms that she used to work with, it was very stressful, a lot of bickering between the girls, but these girls just all gel together, it seems. I can say they're very nice to me when I come in here. It gives me a big ego boost. I came in here to the dental office to just have general cleaning, things of that nature. My daughter, Lauren, had always been on me about me grinding my teeth, I grind my teeth. I didn't realize it but I grind my teeth a lot. My teeth had no character. It was just straight across. You may not notice it yourself, but other people notice it. Myself, I didn't notice it because I saw them every day and I thought maybe that's the way the teeth were. I would highly recommend it because your smile is a lasting impression. A lot of people they can really judge how your character is by how you show your teeth. I'm a happy-go-lucky kind of guy. I laugh a lot so I show my teeth a lot.
