Betty - Patient Testimonial

Description

Betty sought Dr. Mortensen's help to correct a smile that was severely decayed. To meet her needs and restore the health, function, and appearance of her smile, Dr. Mortensen placed dental implants, all-ceramic crowns, and porcelain veneers. Following her treatment, Betty was able to bite into an apple for the first time in years!

My name is Betty Deleye. I came to Dr. Mortensen because my mouth was a complete mess. It had been patched up here and there over the years, probably for the past thirty years, and I wanted to have a better looking mouth. I wanted to be able to smile and bite into an apple. My mouth was so bad that I really didn't want to smile when we took family photos. I didn't want to, actually, I didn't want to be in them. And I decided after my last family trip that, OK I need to do something about it. So I decided, I'll come in, I'll give it a thought and especially the two teeth in the front. They were two different sizes. One was stained, and I said, "I can do better." I had four implants done. I had the two teeth in the front; I had those capped, so that they would match. They would be the same size and shape. I guess overall I just like the way I smiled afterwards. I would go around smiling to everybody, even when he put the first temporary teeth in. What I like about the whole experience here, I just like the way Dr. Mortensen and the staff treats the patients. First of all, they're so friendly. He's a very warm, compassionate person. During the time that I came in, several times I almost fell asleep, and I had never done that with a dentist. And I know that a part of my problem with going to dentists is I'm afraid of them. I have a fear, and when I come here it's just like home. I feel very, very like I'm a part of the family here. When I came in for my procedure and the temporary teeth were placed in, it was just amazing. I felt actually like I had my permanent teeth in and a few days later I went on a trip, and I was gone for a long period of time. I thought, oh, this might go wrong, that might go wrong, but it was just wonderful. I waited the process through to have the permanent teeth put in, and that was very smooth also. The first thing I ate was that apple. I had to bite into that apple. I wanted to try it because probably for the last maybe ten years, I would not bite into anything, and I had an experience with one of the front teeth popping out, so I was afraid to bite into even a hamburger, anything. And I told Dr. Mortensen, when I get these teeth in I'm going to try that apple, and I did. It was great. It was wonderful. I would recommend Dr. Mortensen because I think that once you come to him, you will never go to another dentist. He's just that great. He's terrific.
