Smile Makeover

Meet the 2022 Smile Makeover Winner!

On July 1, 2022 we announced the winner of our 2022 Smile Makeover Giveaway. Tammy Patrick is a wife, mother, and grandmother - nominated by her daughter, Kayla, and grandson, Grayson. She is an active member of her community and is deserving of this Smile Makeover.

Step 1: The first time Tammy came into M.R. Bishop DMD and Associates, we did a complete examination. We utilized our state-of-the-art equipment and techniques to get a full picture and understanding of her oral health and teeth. Using our Cone Beam machine we were able to create images that are comparable to a CT scan and gave us a better representation of Tammy’s oral health. The Cone Beam machine is used on all of our patients during their routine checkups. Next, we created a 3D scan of Tammy’s teeth, which we then 3D printed. This gave us a full understanding of Tammy’s oral situation and allowed us to create a comprehensive plan that would give Tammy her dream smile and ensure her oral health!

Tammy’s next appointment, to install her permanent bridges and crowns and complete her Smile Makeover, was several weeks later. We had to wait for her mouth to heal and for the swelling to reduce.

Step 3: At Tammy’s third and final apointment. We installed her permanent bridge and crowns. We did a last round of whitening and Tammy was ready to face the world equipped with a new smile. Tammy left our offices with a newfound confidence and a beaming smile!
