All of my life, the financial needs of my children and my business took precedence over my own personal desires. One of these was to improve the appearance of my smile. Once my children were grown and my business had sold, I decided that it was time to do something special just for me.
"Over the years, my teeth became worn from grinding during my sleep and I had developed periodontal disease. I began to research my options with dentists who could aesthetically enhance my smile while addressing the dental health issues that had affected my teeth and gums. This led me to the office of Dream Smile Dental and Dr. Ronkin.
During the initial phase of my treatment, my periodontal condition was addressed through a deep-cleaning procedure. Next, a computerized diagnostic test determined that my night grinding condition was caused by an unbalanced bite. Treatments began using a neuromuscular TENS unit to relax the muscles in my jaw and give the upper and lower arches of my teeth the chance to reposition to a corrected bite. During this time, I wore and orthotic device that helped maintain the proper bite and assist in opening it to an optimum position.
Once my bite was stabilized to its corrected position, 20 porcelain veneers were placed on both the upper and lower front teeth. This phase of the treatment plan was completed in only two office visits. My dental health and the appearance of my smile changed dramatically in only eight weeks.
This is by far the best gift that I have ever given to me!"
I was confident that my expectations would be met because of my positive experience with Dr. Ronkin. Honestly, when I first sat with Dr. Ronkin, my one and only fear was if it was going to be all worth it.
"I would definitely recommend Dream Smile Dental to others. I have told many of my friends and continue to tell people about the amazing job that you guys do.
I am so happy! It's hard to believe the difference that a confident smile can make in the way that one interacts with others.
Just yesterday, I remembered stopping for a second to talk with a friend at the gym and when I smiled, my fist instinct was to cover my teeth with my hands like I used to do before. I instantly remembered that I don't have the same smile as I used to. Dr. Ronkin and his staff have changed my smile and turned me into a more confident individual. When I smile now, people look at my teeth and give me compliments.
It's amazing how much a little bit of my savings and a great dentist like Dr. Ronkin and his staff can do to change your life.
Thank you for everything! Your guys are the best!"
After years of visiting different dentists and leaving with my questions unanswered, Dream Smile Dental provided the solution that I had been looking for.
"From the very first time I met with Dr. Ronkin, he was encouraging and positive that the final outcome would be a success. His first concern was my oral health even though I was more interested in what he could do cosmetically.
During the procedures the staff at Dream Smile always created a comfortable atmosphere for me and provided attention to every detail.
My smile is now protected and beautiful. That is a great feeling. Thank you for keeping me smiling! "
Of Braintree, MA in his late 40's works in the home entertainment business. He had an overall dissatisfaction and self-confidence issue about his smile.
"I can honestly say that I think about Dream Smile Dental EVERY time I look in the mirror! Which by the way is a lot more often now than before! When I'm talking to someone, I'm not worried that they are looking at my teeth, I know they are looking at me, a nice feeling!
My confidence level has sky-rocketed! Its a very nice feeling, not having to worry about my smile anymore, and I have Dr. Shwartzman to thank for that! She is one heck of a Dentist...change that- a miracle worker is more like it! I can never thank her enough....all of you! You've changed my life!"
Of Weymouth works as an electrician at Gillette. For years, his migraines affected his work and leisure, often causing nausea.
"The dentist cured my headaches! What do headaches have to do with teeth? Over the years, my teeth had worn down from normal use and from grinding in my sleep, causing misalignment of my jaw. That caused TMJ, resulting in incredible migraines and jaw soreness. My teeth were chipping and getting thin. Dr. Shwartzman used an electronic pulsed muscle relaxer and made precise measurements to see how my teeth should properly close. Within a day of getting my new caps, I was freed from the daily pain. In addition, people say I look younger. And I smile more. Dream Smile provided modern dentistry with old-fashioned patient care. It really wasn't like going to the dentist."
Of Randolph is in her late 40s. She is a Merchandise Placement Manager at Jordan’s Furniture, and has a good deal of interaction with customers. She had an overbite, two crooked teeth and old bonding.
"I was very self-conscious about my teeth, going back to my teens and early 20s. It was even more bothersome as I got older, especially when I'm on the sales floor around customers. One of the first things I notice about people is their teeth - good teeth and a nice smile. I guess I have 'tooth envy.' I decided it was finally time to do something for me. To correct my problems, Dr, Ronkin removed all my amalgam fillings and put veneers on eight of my teeth. He was passionate about making me look great and about his work, and he did what he promised - without pain. Now, people comment on how nice my teeth are. I can smile and feel good about it. I've gone from self-conscious to self-confident."
I had problems with my bite for as long as I could remember and had already had braces 3 times to attempt to straighten my jaw line and bite.
"The braces did work to a certain degree but I still had problems with my bite. Smiling in front of strangers and new people felt awkward because I felt so insecure about my teeth and crooked smile. I had been told that the only procedure that would insure a beautiful, straight smile would involve breaking my jaw, re-setting it, and having my mouth wired shut for at least 8 weeks. Then I discovered Dr. Shwarzman and Dream Smile Dental. Right from the first initial look into my mouth she was more than optimistic that porcelain veneers would enhance the general appearance of my teeth as well as fix my crooked smile. The porcelain veneers worked better than anticipated and since then and with my added confidence, I haven't been able to stop smiling!
Thank you so much Dr. Shwartzman!"
of Monument Beach, Cape Cod just couldn't live with her crooked, multi-colored teeth any longer, and at almost 60 decided NOW was the time!
"My husband passed away a few years ago and it was very important to me to gain some confidence if I was to begin dating again. I have always believed that if you want something bad enough you should find a way to get it...and so my mission began!
I didn't hesitate to take the hour long trip to Canton when I found an LVI trained dentist in the town where my kids had gone to high school. "I did my homework on cosmetic dentistry before deciding on a dentist. My son worked in the dental whitening business at one time and recommended that I use a dentist who had been trained at the Las Vegas Institute. So after researching the LVI institute I realized how important that really was…."
I decided on a consultation with Dream Smile Dental, because of their experience, training and convenient location in Canton. I met Dr. Shwartzman and staff and immediately felt comfortable. On my visits to the office, I never had to wait and the work was completed in four visits. Dr. Shwartzman is thorough, patient, has a wonderful sense of humor. She also works quickly and you always have her undivided attention.
The bottom line for me is that I now have a smile that I never even dreamed could be this good and the confidence to head out on my first-ever cruise smiling wide in all the pictures!"
Vice President of a major bio-technology firm, realized the importance of a great smile in his dealings with major clients.
"As an adolescent (nearly 50 years ago) tooth care was limited to occasional brushing. As a result, many of my teeth required fillings, including my front teeth. As an adult I was always cognizant of my appearance but a nice suit didn't hide the appearance of my smile. Also working in the dental field provided me with exposure to advances in cosmetic dentistry so I decided to finally take advantage of these advances. I must say that the cosmetic result is great! My colleagues have commented to me that my smile never looked better. I'm now not hesitant to smile broadly which makes me feel more comfortable and confident. Thank you Dream Smile Dental."
A healthcare liaison from Massachusetts who deals with many people face to face on a daily basis.
"Chronic jaw pain led me to Dream Smile Dental and Dr. Ronkin. The pain was so intense that it had become a focus of my daily life. Dr. Ronkin performed computerized diagnostic tests that helped him determine the source of my pain, an unbalanced bite. Part of my problem was that my upper teeth were small and did not meet my lower teeth.
Neuromuscular treatments with a tensing unit relaxed the muscles in my jaw and gave my jaw the ability to reposition to one that was balanced. I wore an orthotic device inside my mouth to maintain the balanced position of my bite and stabilize the jaw muscles. This also relieved the daily pain I had been experiencing.
Within less than a month, Dr. Ronkin was able to correct my bite by restoring my upper teeth and allowing them to meet my lower teeth. My front teeth were restored with porcelain veneers. The change in their appearance was dramatic. My lower teeth were then straightened with Invisalign braces, giving me a beautiful, pain-free smile.
In my youth, my teeth did not remain straightened even with braces. I had always envied those with a beautiful smile. Now my search to become pain and headache-free has led me to a beautiful white smile with straight teeth!"
