In this crown and bridge testimonial, Barb explains that dentistry in Canada is a slow and cost prohibitive process. She reached out to Dr. Valenzuela, and he was able to provide a complete transformation with crowns and bridges that fit perfectly. She is now proud of her smile and wants to show everyone.
I'm Barb [Suder]. I'm from Alberta, Canada where our dental work is extremely expensive and hard to get insurance. I had crowns done and my front teeth all through my life from when I was 16 up and they were all loose. And I was afraid if they were falling out. I came to Jose Valenzuela and found out it was periodontal disease that was causing them to be loose. And we did some gum realignment, a little bit of surgery and he replaced a bridge that was always too big that was done in Canada, replaced all five crowns. Everything has been fantastic.
I believe the service down here is second-to-none, compared to our service we would get in Alberta. And the main reason I believe this is because they have the labs right here. If you live in rural Alberta, you have to wait months to get an appointment. Then you have to go in and if you have impressions, they have to send them out to the nearby city. It'll take weeks to have them back. It takes literally a winter if you're trying to get a bridge done, where here, you can have it done basically a crown the next day or the same day because the lab work is right here. And the labs, they come back and forth with your dental work and if it's not 100% perfect, it doesn't fit 100% perfect, it goes back to the lab to be reworked. If the color's off just a tad, it goes right back to the lab and you're still here the same day and you walk away and it's done.
