5 out of 5 stars Dental Crown

Happily Crowned - New York, NY

Dr. Faktor and his team did such a phenomenal job with my dental crown. Throughout the whole process I was given the utmost care and felt completely at ease knowing the wealth of skill and professionalism that Dr. Faktor and his team provides. The crown itself was an absolute match and I couldn't be happier with the result.
