When I was three, I got an ear infection and the medicine that they gave me stained my teeth. As I grew up, I was always very self-conscious about my teeth. I had some bonding done when I was in college, down in Baton Rouge. It really wasn't a very good quality product. When I started coming to Dr. Beck, he began talking to me about different options for my teeth to make my smile look better.
Finally in 2001, I let him do some crowns on the top of my teeth. After that, everybody always complimented how pretty my smile was and it felt really good. Finally this year, 15 years after that, I got him to do the bottom crowns as well. After growing up and being so insecure and wishing there was one thing that I could change, which was my teeth, he really made that wish a reality. Now, it's like I can check it off my list. I'm very satisfied with the way that my teeth look and it really does add to my confidence.
He is head and shoulders above any other dentist I've ever had. The staff here is by far the most capable and competent. They're always friendly. If I need something, even if I'm not scheduled, they'll make sure that I'm taken care of.
My teeth were in pretty bad shape. I guess it was an inherited thing. I kept putting off doing things. I was going to another dentist at the time, and we just kind of patched whenever it was necessary to keep from spending too much money. I talked to some friends, and actually a relative, who had been to Victor to have some work done, and I was impressed with what their results were. So, we decided to come and talk to him about it and liked what we heard.
It's a whole different world than when I came in here with what I had in the way of teeth before we started doing the work. People say, “Something's different about you. I don't know exactly what it is, but you look different. You look a little younger there.” I think the results of the work is a very important factor in recommendation for dentist work. My wife has a relative that came here and had his work done, and we were very impressed with that. That's a huge selling point.
Sometimes a tooth has lost enough tooth structure that it's not sound enough on it's own. It needs a little help. Can't just put a filling in it, so a crown comes into play. It covers the tooth all the way around and restores all the tooth's structure that's missing.
A bridge is a great option for someone that's missing a tooth. Connects to the tooth in front and behind the space and pulls it all together.

What Is a Dental Bridge?
I just recently had to have a bridge, and that was the emotional part for me, because I've had such good teeth, but they were so great and wonderful in calming me down. The procedure was not bad at all. I was expecting it to be painful. It was not. They took really good care of me. The reason I had to have a bridge is because one of my crowns split and it came off one morning, so I came here for them to just, I thought, stick it back on, but it actually was not able to hold on any longer, so I had to have a bridge. It was, like I said, emotional, but they took really good care of me. My concern was that it being even a different color than my teeth and someone being able to see it, but I mean, I'm very thrilled with the results and it looks fine. No one even knows. They take such good care of you from the greeting, to the procedure, to Dr. Beck himself, to his colleagues. They are very professional but friendly and family-oriented, so anyone should come here.
