For as long as I can remember, I’ve been insecure about my teeth. I never thought much about cosmetic dentistry, I thought it would be too expensive. I also didn’t think the issues with my teeth could be fixed.
I will never forget the day I came home after a week at lake Powell feeling tan and great. A kid belonging to a friend of mine comes through the door and says, “Whoah, what happened to you? Did you lose a tooth?” I was like what!!? Then he realized my little lateral tooth was just hiding and it only looked like I was missing one.
I’ve never been happy with my teeth but I’ve tried to convince myself they were a quirky part of who I was and I “should” be happy with them. But I’ve always felt people noticed the gap when I talked or smiled. It made me feel insecure and I wondered what they might be thinking.
Then I met Dr. Corey Rush. He discussed how easy it would be to get the smile I wanted. Just two veneers and the process would take two to three appointments.
The procedure is easy. After a few shots of novocain, so no pain, teeth are drilled to half the size or smaller. A mold is cast, a temporary made and you’re good to go until your permanent veneers are ready. Dr. Rush has an amazing state of the art 3D scanner so no plaster. It definitely makes the whole process much easier.
A photographer then takes SUPER specific pictures and notes of each little flaw, shape and color of your teeth so the veneers match. I felt extremely confident walking out that he was going to make the perfect teeth for me.

When your permanents are ready, Dr. Rush simply pops out the temps and fits your new veneers. Dr. Rush is a perfectionist and has an excellent eye for symmetry and giving you a natural look. I now have two new teeth and my smile feels so natural. They will never change color, never stain or get cavities!
I am completely happy and in love with my teeth. The confidence I have smiling and talking is amazing. With all the photographs I’ve posted over the years, it’s a shame I hated so many simply because of a tooth.
Tell me, have you wanted to get your smile done? How do you feel about my before and after? Let me know in the comments.
Also, if you are willing to travel or live in Arizona I highly recommend Rush Dental. Their pricing is extremely competitive plus the service and quality of the whole experience was a 10/10.
