Cassie's smile make over with zoom whitening and 8 porcelain veneers. "They're perfect! I haven't stopped smiling literally since I left the office week."

Healthier Than Ever!

Christina is feeling healthier than ever! All thanks to Dr. Gary Michaelson.

Smiling Again

David was unhappy with his smile for years and never wanted to show teeth. He had crowding and crooked upper front teeth and worn down edges. He also was unhappy with the shade of his teeth. We did zoom whitening and a combination of porcelain crowns and veneers on his 6 front teeth. The treatment was complete in 2 visits.

Laughing Again

Dental patient review on cosmetic porcelain veneers. Dental laminates are often used to enhance smiles. Veneers can close spaces, lengthen teeth, and make teeth brighter. This patient had her teeth whitened prior to her dental veneers. Orlando Florida

Confident Smile

Anthony had six month smiles orthodontics done to close spaces and straighten his teeth. After his braces came off he had his teeth whitened and then cosmetic bonding done. He is now able to smile confidently and laugh without hesitation!

Happy Every Single Time

Debbie is a long time customer who recommends our dental practice to family and friends. She has always left happy, at ease, and of course smiling.

Fixed Smile

Fixed Smile

When I was younger I was in an accident that broke my 2 front teeth. I suffered through my teen years and early adult life with discolored unnatural looking bondings. I am so glad I decided to fix my smile. The procedure was easy and painless and the end result is amazing. I love my new smile! I am so much more confident and get endless compliments on my smile. Thanks!

New Smile, New Confidence

New Smile, New Confidence

Since I was a teenager (many years ago), I wouldn't show my teeth when I smiled. My teeth were crooked and yellow. I envied other people who had nice, straight, white teeth. Now I love to show my teeth when I smile. Just last week my hairdresser commented how nice my teeth were looking. I can't thank my daughter and Dr. Michaelson enough. They've changed my life.

Happy Smile

Happy Smile

I am very happy with my new smile. It is difficult to remember what my old smile ever looked like. However, I remember always being self conscious of smiling and never liking the way my teeth looked. I am no longer uncomfortable smiling which is a huge change on a daily basis! Those that know I had dental work done are very impressed with the outcome, those who don't know me can't easily figure out what is different. My teeth and smile look like the one I should have been born with. I am happy with the smile lift. Dr. Perelmuter did a great job. Dr. Michaelson and Christina were genuine and kind during the entire process. I knew what to expect and when, which is comforting with such a big change. The entire staff was wonderful, caring and always energetic and upbeat. I have and will continue to positively recommend Dr. Michaelson and his team. Best wishes to you all!
-Kathryn

Easy & Painless

Easy & Painless

I have worked with Dr. Michaelson for over 15 years and see the result of his work daily. I never liked the uneven edges of my teeth and decided to do cosmetic treatment myself. The procedure was easy and painless and I love the results. I get to enjoy my new smile everyday!
-Ivette

Beautiful Smile

Beautiful Smile

I want to thank you so much for my beautiful smile. You have no idea how long I have waited for this day. All my life I hated my front teeth and you made them beautiful. Not only was your job perfect, but also the way your office staff and you treated me was beyond any other experience I have had in a long time. You made me feel welcome and special and not very many dentists know how to do that. From the moment I walked into your practice I felt great, the ambiance and the treatment is top-of-the-line. Your staff is pleasant and very professional, always willing to please, I loved that. Please don't ever change, what you are doing is great!

Smiling A Lot More

Smiling A Lot More

I am very pleased with my new appearance and I seem to be smiling a lot more. The whole experience from start to finish was such a positive endeavor; may I say I have never in my life enjoyed going to the dentist so much. You and your staff went out of your way to be gentle kind and positive; I miss not visiting you anymore. I have had many comments from friends, family and total strangers and all have been positive and complementary. I would recommend your services without hesitation.
Best Regards,
-Kay

First Class Environment

First Class Environment

Dr. Gary Michaelson came very highly recommended to me as both a qualified general and cosmetic dentist. He put me at ease on my first visit, and his office staff was so professional, patient, friendly and always available to make sure I was comfortable.
This is truly a “first class” environment.
My dental situation presented some special challenges, but Dr. Michaelson carefully discussed all options and the steps required to reach the best outcome possible. My treatment plan required veneers, crowns, and implants in order to reach my goal. I stopped being concerned when I realized he was a perfectionist, an “artist”, who cared about the end result as much as I did.
And the change was phenomenal! It’s unbelievable when I see how much better and yet - how natural my teeth look. Now I am so pleased with my smile, my more youthful appearance, and my improved dental health.. I can honestly say that the results exceeded my expectations.
-Susan

Quality Work

Quality Work

I really appreciate the quality of work you do. My new bridge looks so much more natural than the old one. you and your staff are so warm and welcoming which makes relaxing in the dentist's office much easier.
-Chris

There are no words to describe exactly how amazing my experience with Dr.Michaelson and his staff has been. From day one I felt so welcome in his office. My smile was honestly one of my largest insecurities, I never wanted to show my teeth for photos and covered my mouth while laughing. I went to Dr. Michaelson's office in hopes to get veneers and a new smile. Every consultation was easy and relaxed. I felt so safe with his team. - Cassie P.
