Dr. Mercurio Testimonials - New Teeth in One Day
"I AM SO THANKFUL AND HAPPY WITH THE ENTIRE PROCESS. I LOVE THE RESULT, AND I SMILE ALL THE TIME! After several years of failed dental procedures, gum disease, failed bridgework, failed crowns and the emotional stress of 'going to the dentist', I found Dr. Mercurio and his staff. I am so thankful and happy with the entire process. Dr. Mercurio understands the despair of someone who needs major dental work. He is patient, friendly and meticulous. And the staff reflects the same qualities—friendly, compassionate and excellent to deal with. I now have a healthy mouth, and I love the result. I smile all the time!" - Phillis
"NO MORE LOOSE TEETH AND NO MORE PAIN, AND MY NEW TEETH LOOK AND FEEL REAL. I CAN SMILE, AND I CAN EAT JUST ABOUT ANYTHING. I had an upper denture and some implants on the bottom, a broken bridge with missing teeth, and not much bone on my upper arch. I wanted implants all around the top, and nobody wanted to do it. I was told it couldn’t be done. I found information on the internet about fixed-in teeth, and I went to see Dr. Mercurio. He found a solution. Dr. Mercurio was easy to work with and very understanding. He has compassion as a doctor, and he walks you through the procedure so that you understand what is going to happen. He is honest and has a passion for doing the work right. He did not take any shortcuts. When I had the surgery and bone graft, Dr. Mercurio and his office staff called to see how I was doing while I was going through the healing process. Everyone is professional, pleasant and happy. And they take extreme pride in their work. There were no surprises except that my teeth came out perfect. No more loose teeth and no more pain, and my new teeth look and feel real. I can smile, and I can eat just about anything. Thanks to my treatment, I have a better quality of life, and I look great. I am always getting compliments about my teeth. I have found I have more confidence in speaking to people, now that my teeth look real!" - Richard
