Rido hadn’t been to the dentist in 25 years. He smoked a pack of cigarettes a day. This dangerous combination led to a broken-down, worn-out, unsightly smile that seemed beyond repair. With Dr. Michael J. Wei’s expertise and care, Rido’s stunning smile makeover was created through extensive full-mouth reconstruction.
Dr. Wei Earns a Reluctant Patient’s Trust
How did Rido get to the point where his teeth were in such disrepair? He told Dr. Wei that he had fears about going to the dentist ever since having a bad experience as a child. Establishing a solid foundation with oral health care is so important, but there are instances when people have setbacks that interfere with their ability to prioritize their teeth and gums, even as adults.
“I was able to effectively communicate with Rido and earn his trust in me,” says Dr. Wei. “I walked him through the treatment plan and explained to him step-by-step what I needed to do to restore his dental health.” Every patient gets this kind of five-star care from Dr. Wei and his dental team – every patient’s oral health and their happiness with the appearance and functionality of their smile are paramount.
A Life-Changing Smile Transformation
Changing a smile like Rido’s takes some work. Here is what Dr. Wei did:
- Full-mouth reconstruction
- Restoration of upper teeth with porcelain crowns
- Anterior porcelain bridge on lower teeth
- Porcelain crowns on remaining lower teeth
Stunningly, Rido did not need any extractions or root canals on the upper teeth. See the photos and description of Rido’s smile transformation @DrMikeWei on Instagram.
A Beautiful, Kissable Smile
Rido said his wife hadn’t kissed him in over two decades because of the state of his teeth. She’s the one, as a patient of Dr. Wei’s, who encouraged her husband to visit her Manhattan cosmetic dentist. Now Rido has a mouth full of gorgeous teeth that make him look younger, healthier, and happier.
If you think that your smile is in too great of disrepair to be fixed, take a close look at this special case. Rido spent years away from the dentist and his teeth got worse and worse, but Dr. Wei’s care and expertise made an incredible, life-changing smile makeover possible.
“Rido told me he can’t believe all the compliments he has been receiving daily,” says Dr. Wei. “He thought this would never happen to him. How a healthy and gorgeous smile can make a difference. He is enjoying his life more now – and his wife has started kissing him again! He expressed so much gratitude for what I did for him.” During a check-up, Rido told Dr. Wei he quit smoking, started to eat better and exercise, and had lost some weight. “The smile makeover gave him a huge boost of confidence and now he has a much brighter outlook on life,” says Dr. Wei.
For Dr. Wei, it’s not just about the cosmetic dentistry or the full-mouth reconstruction. “It’s wonderful to witness such a dramatic life transformation. I’m grateful when I have an opportunity like this where I get to change people’s lives.”
