Patient Stories - Sharion Brockett - Richardson, TX - Dentistry By Design

I’m Sharion Brockett. I had the infection from my teeth that actually was it was draining in my sinuses. So, I felt really bad but I had no idea why. I always have smiled a lot when it really got my attention was my grandson’s wedding and we get their and, I can’t eat because I had missing teeth, I had a broken tooth. The night before my consultation and was praying about the appointment the most beautiful rainbow, I’ve seen rainbows before but this one was huge. I got pictures of it too. When I had my surgery doctor Tiner walked in and I said I want rainbows and butterflies. Didn’t feel any pain and it was great afterwards. I don’t feel like I’m coming for a dentist important when I come here it’s a peaceful place the staff is happy. I knew that I was in the right place and this was where it was going to be. Yeah, I’ve had all the time. I didn’t take Advil but a couple of days and that was it with the staff here and Doctor Tiner are very caring and concerned about how you’re feeling. Sharion definitely was not confident her smile she was she was a very bubbly personality. She was looking for something to help get that confidence back. So, the option was presented that we would do an all-on-four case. It was you know a transformation in one day. So, she comes in we take out all the bad teeth we put in the four implants we make her a denture that attaches to those teeth and she walks out with a brand-new smile. Well after the surgery when we saw Sharion, she couldn’t believe how much they looked like her natural teeth and how we captured what she was trying to regain. These kinds of cases allow us to create a whole new persona a new smile for them. Their shape their colour we get to design them their ideal smile. We’re honoured to help them gain that smile that they’ve always dreamed of having back. When I go out to eat now and I can eat my steak or anything else I want. They look just like my original teeth I was amazed. Well, I smiled all the time how could you not it’s really neat because now I can encourage other people to go ahead and have it done first time, I saw it I was just I was like it’s amazing that that can be done.

Ashton is grateful for the alternative solutions she received at Dentistry by Design

Patient Stories - Ashton Corum - Richardson, TX - Dentistry By Design

My name is Ashton, I am 28 years old and i am a teacher! My smile is super important to me because I am a teacher so I am always in front of kids, always talking to parents and colleagues. So I have always had smaller teeth they were a little smaller, I had a gap kind of between my teeth and I like to smile but I just was not happy with exactly how my teeth looked. I love the office here it is super friendly everybody is so warm they truly care, and they really want the best for you and your teeth and I really felt that the moment I walked in.

At first when I had a consultation with Dr. Tiner about it he said you know I think for you we need to do Invisalign first, and so after doing that he wanted to laser my gums up a little bit and then after he was able to put the veneers on for just the veneer part that only took maybe a few months process total but it is totally worth it, that is for sure! So when they put these teeth on you look at yourself and you are like wow that is crazy that, that is me and it instantly improved my confidence and I finally felt like I looked the way that I should look, and so it was really awesome that Dr. Tiner was able to take my vision and his vision and kind of put them together. Honestly I am mad I didn’t do it sooner!

Ashton came to me with previous orthodontic treatment. She was looking for alternate solutions other than going back into braces. She didn’t like the position of the teeth they were like misaligned a little bit and so her goal was to get things back to a more ideal position. After she saw she was super excited, usually most everybody is and that is the goal we are trying to achieve we want people to be, just blown away with what they see so when we do veneers we look at the whole smile, do we need to modify the gum tissue. Are things a little out of alignment and try to help us achieve the best results. I think if people are scared or worried about getting veneers they defiantly should have a consultation just to see what doctor Tiner could do for you when he looked at me teeth and said you know maybe we should raise your gums a little bit so we can see more of your teeth so they fill your mouth more, he was able to kind of draw on a screen and show me models and kind of show me what he could do for me, but honestly it looked a million times better than I thought it would ever look.
