Marlene never had braces as a child and always felt self conscious about her crooked teeth. She felt even more self conscious about showing a gold filling on one of her front teeth. As a child, her father insisted on having a gold filling done since he thought it would last longer. Rather than feeling like she was insulting her father, Marlene hid her smile. Plus, she thought it would take a long time and a lot of work to fix her crooked teeth and old fillings. At her age, she really didn’t want to go through braces. It wasn’t until her daughter started working at Dr. Michaelson’s that she realized her dream of having a beautiful smile could be within reach. In three appointments, she was able to whiten her teeth with Zoom In Office Whitening and have eight porcelain crowns placed. She is so happy with her smile and grateful for the confidence Dr. Michaelson gave her that she doesn’t think twice about driving from Tampa to East Orlando for her maintenance visits.
