Beyond Frustrated Until I Found Dr. Boulden & The Atlanta Dental Spa (The Best Cosmetic Dentist Period)! - Roswell, GA

Like many other patients, my crooked and stained...

Like many other patients, my crooked and stained teeth had bothered me for quite some time. My goal was to replace my upper teeth with porcelain veneers. Having lived in Atlanta for a number of years, I would frequently see the advertisements of a prominent cosmetic dentist here in town. Having celebrities, entertainers, and sports figures as clientele can go a long way in marketing and it certainly swayed my decision to go with this particular cosmetic dentist. If you are considering making this investment, PLEASE, PLEASE do yourself a favor, do your homework and research your dentists carefully before making your ultimate decision.

At first, I had a good feeling about the dentist that I had chose. However, that feeling had changed soon after my procedure began. One of my biggest complaints about this particular cosmetic dentistry practice was the lack of face-time and actual interaction with the cosmetic dentist who administers the procedure. I feel that if you are making a substantial financial investment and you are putting your trust in this professional's hands, in return, you should get the quality and care from the Doc that you came to see!

I never felt this way with this first dental practice. After my first set of temporaries were placed, I had a number of questions and concerns in which the dentist answered, but I never felt 100% confident with the appearance of the temporaries. I had voiced my concerns about the temps before moving forward with the veneers. After the veneers were placed, I was unhappy with the outcome. Although it was a vast improvement from where I began, It was not the outcome that I had hoped for. After this first procedure, I voiced my disappointment to the cosmetic dentist and from that point forward, I had NO further communication with this dentist whatsoever! However, this dental practice agreed to re-do my veneers at no cost and with every question, or concern that I had raised before the 2nd set of veneers were placed, my questions were answered and handled by the Doctor's consultant, not the Doctor! This was extremely frustrating and annoying! I wanted to speak with and ask these questions directly to the DENTIST, not their consultant. Again, I feel that if you spend this type of money, you should receive a higher level of service and at least have your questions answered by the professional who's name is on the door! I believe the Doctor should be available for their patients and stand by them from start to finish through this procedure. This certainly was not the case with my experience!

After the 2nd set of veneers were placed with this dental firm, I initially thought the teeth looked OK, however the veneers did not look the same as the temporaries. What really frustrated me was the fact that I had told them NOT to change anything when they create the porcelain veneers, but rather make porcelains exactly like the last temps. One tooth in particular bothered me right away and I let them know this as well. As time went on, I grew to dislike this second set of veneers more and more. The tipping point was when one of my close friends (who did not not know I had the procedure done) said my teeth looked fake and that they looked like chiclets! Wow!

At this point, I was beyond frustrated and angry with my situation. I decided that if I can afford it and find the right cosmetic dentist to help me with my case, then I would move forward with a 3rd procedure. So I began researching other cosmetic dentists locally and nationally (an exercise in which I should've done from the very beginning) and thankfully found the Atlanta Dental Spa and the exceptionally talented and caring Dr. Boulden. All I can say is that Dr. Boulden is the man! Had I been wise enough to visit and consult with Dr. Boulden from the very start, I would've avoided so much stress, trauma to my teeth and I would've saved a ton of money!! (Dr. Boulden and the Atlanta Dental Spa is actually much cheaper than the first dentist that I had visited). After meeting with Dr. Boulden and his staff, I immediately felt at ease and confident that I had found the best cosmetic dentist possible and even better yet, he was right here in Atlanta. It's no surprise that every review I've ever read about Dr. Boulden is positive and this just speaks to his professionalism and care that he takes with his patients. Also, the interactions I had with Dr. Boulden's staff, his hygienists, Jenny and Debbie in particular, were great and they are just as warm and caring for their patients as well.

I am so thankful that I had found Dr. Boulden and that he was able to give me the smile that I had always hoped for! I am now so happy with my outcome and the appearance of my teeth and smile. I believe Dr. Boulden is truly gifted and cannot thank him enough for restoring my confidence. I also really appreciate his bedside manner and that he was by my side through the entire step of this process(he actually called me after hours to check up on me, making sure I was ok). If you're reading this, please do not make the mistake that I made. You can save so much time, money, pain and stress by making the right decision the first time! Do your homework, read the reviews, visit and consult with as many cosmetic dentists that you feel necessary and you too will realize that Dr. Boulden and the Atlanta Dental Spa are the best.
