"I'm a happy person and my new smile matches who I am inside," she said. "On a scale of 1-10, I give it a 10-plus. I have not stopped smiling since I got my all new smile. Your smile is your first impression. I feel much more confident now."

"I now have a full, equally balanced bite; I can chew on whatever I want, on either side. It feels perfectly natural and there isn't a worry of over-use of one side of my teeth. It feels as though there’s a whole set of new teeth though it's really only one. It’s just perfect."
