In this dental implants testimonial, our patient discusses the discomfort he previously faced when smiling and eating with missing and damaged teeth. Fortunately, with the help of Smiles for Life, he is now pain-free, can smile more comfortably, and be more confident in every day activities. Additionally, he is now able to eat, chew, and speak with greater confidence.
"I feel great about the work that has been done. I’m very pleased! I had a great deal of pain and problems in the past. While the treatment was being done, I saw improvements in my mouth and health. The pain started to go away. I have had a partial for 40 years and eating certain foods was limited. Since having implants, I have been able to eat foods like raw carrots, steaks, etc. I feel a lot better about myself. My wife really likes that work that I had done. I am very happy with the treatment from Dr. McIntyre and his staff. I was always treated with respect and humor! It was always a positive place to be. I would recommend treatment to others. It did cost a bit of money but it was well worth it!" -- Wes Loomis
"Just wanted to write my story. I have had so much trouble with my teeth all my life. At one time I was highly concerned with my health due to bad teeth. Thanks to Smiles for Life and Amy Crosby for giving me the opportunity to have a smile again. This is truly a blessing for me. I have wanted a great, beautiful smile for a long time and with their help I am going to have that. I would recommend them to anyone thinking of choosing to have a smile again. It’s been lots of hard work and determination, but finally I can see the light, and it is wonderful. These people are truly a gift from God. Thanks for listening to my story. I could go on and on, but for now, just know life is beautiful." --Audrey Grim
"I went almost 10-15 years with gum disease, lost teeth, and insecurity about my teeth. My self-esteem was very low. I had a fear of having dental work. About six months ago, finally, I had the courage to approach Dr. McIntyre and Dr. Whiting about a plan forward—which was upper and lower full implants. In two long procedures, Dr. McIntyre extracted my teeth, installed 10 implants and did some bone grafting. After each session (5-6 hours) I went home and took a nap after ice packing the areas and both times awoke to almost no pain at all. My confidence in myself is really growing and I would and have recommended this office to my friends." -- Blake Rhodes

"I was having low self-esteem because of having lost some of my front teeth. After the work that was done I feel like a new person. I am smiling all the time and getting comments on how nice my smile is and that I look years younger. I am very happy with my new smile and it shows." -- Brenda Dean
"The work was very good. I can now eat food that for three years I couldn’t—like bacon, popcorn, and potatoes. I forgot how good food tasted. Last week I went out for dinner with my family and it was great. I didn’t know how much I was missing. My coworkers say that I smile all the time now. They say my smile meets my personality. I was treated like they knew me forever, like family. I would and I have told others to go here." -- Charles Redifer Jr.
"I had twenty veneers placed – ten on the top teeth and ten on the bottom. I am very pleased with the results. I never liked my teeth because they were not white enough and very small and thin. Now they are whiter and I like the shape. The comments I receive are that they look very natural and pretty. I smile more now! Everyone in the office was so supportive, helpful and kind. The staff are professional, caring and supportive. I would recommend anyone getting any cosmetic dentistry to see Dr McIntyre." —Lindy Jacobs - Harrisonburg

—Burma Puckett - Greenville
"I was referred to Dr McIntyre by my hygienist at another dentist office when I expressed concern over my front teeth in terms of their appearance and overall health. I was dealt with professionally by receiving a full complimentary consultation with three solutions/treatment plans to choose from. I found the overall process to be generally painless and well orchestrated with appointments and expectations laid out in the initial treatment plan. The office and staff were always friendly and responsive and lived up to my expectations. My teeth and smile look so much better and I can now smile with confidence. I am very pleased with the outcome and would recommend Dr McIntyre and his staff with confidence to anyone in need of cosmetic dentistry." —Sam Lapsley - Harrisonburg

Video: Jody's Story
After receiving a dental filling for a chipped teeth, Jody noticed that years of drinking coffee left visible, unwanted stains around the filling. She decided that porcelain veneers, offered by the doctors at Smiles for Life, were her best option for concealing the chipped teeth while avoiding further stains. Prior to her treatment, the doctors were able to show her computer generated photos to give her a good idea of how veneers would transform her smile.
"A friend recommended Dr McIntyre to me for a minor job which turned into a much bigger job. I had gone to the same dentist for 30 years prior to moving to Bridgewater and I loved that office. But when I came to Smiles For Life and found Dr McIntyre, his office and his great team, I have changed my mind – Never before in my life have I had injections that did not sting, burn or hurt when being applied. Dr McIntyre is now my favorite dentist!" —Lois Snavely - Bridgewater

—Janet Miller - Bridgewater
"I feel very good about the work that I had done. I can now feel more confident when I smile. Others notice my new veneers and compliment me on the way they enhance my appearance when I smile. I have been treated very well by my doctor and his staff. I know they will make my visit as comfortable for me as is possible. I would recommend this kind of treatment for others as it improves your confidence and your daily living." —Catherine Craig - Bridgewater

"My son was always been very self conscious of his small teeth. When Dr McIntyre noticed excessive wear on the backs of his teeth, he then suggested veneers. His looks have changed so much and his self-confidence has also risen. He SMILES a lot more now. There is no need to look at other offices. Jonanthan chipped his tooth one night on the ball field. Dr Mac came to the office at 9:00pm to repair his tooth. I even got to be the 'assistant!' We all feel we are part of the 'dental family' and have complete trust in their opinion of what needs to be done. We do feel they know us personally and really care about our dental health. We could not ask for more." —Tammy Saufley – now lives in Arlington
