Rob: I received veneers on both my top and bottom teeth.

ELEVATE: Was there a pivotal moment that solidified your decision?

Rob: My smile was always a huge insecurity for me. I used to host a few TV shows and I found myself never smiling on camera. It really began to bother me. Also, my sister was about to get married and I knew that was an event I wanted to smile at, so I knew it was the right time in my life to get it done.

ELEVATE: Did you have any reservations about the surgery before visiting Dr. Slome?

Rob: My teeth were horrible before I visited Dr. Slome. I had always feared the dentist, ever since I was a kid, so I stayed away. When I finally decided to get the procedure done, I had not seen a dentist for eight years. Dr. Slome was cool and confident and made me feel super-comfortable.

ELEVATE: Why did you decide on Dr. Slome?

Rob: I decided on Dr. Slome because, after our consultation, he gave me nothing but the utmost confidence that he could get my teeth and gums back to a very healthy state and give me the smile I always wanted. I loved that he treated my teeth like a painting. He took a lot of time to design what my smile was going to look like. That was one of my biggest fears: to have Chiclets for teeth. But Dr. Slome assured me that his design would be a masterpiece. And it really was! Also, I love going to the dentist now. It’s so refreshing to have a healthy mouth.

ELEVATE: How did you feel about your new look after the surgery?

Rob: Honestly, it changed my life. I don’t know any other way to describe it. I am so much more confident. I feel great about myself and I love to smile. Smiling really gets you far in life. At the end of the day, it just makes you happy. I love my smile! It’s so natural and no one believes that my teeth are veneers.

ELEVATE: What advice do you have for people thinking of getting a similar procedure?

Rob: Just go for it. At the end of the day, it’s worth every penny to feel better about yourself and to smile more. Be prepared, you will get more smile wrinkles, but it’s a small price to pay for a great set of pearly whites.
