While looking at my developed photographs from my cruise vacation, I decided that the time had finally come to have my teeth fixed. I had a gap in my two front teeth and a bite that was far from perfect for most of my life. I was referred to Dr. Frank Celenza by another dentist who insisted that if anyone could fix my teeth, it would be him. I had wanted invisalign for a long time, but was skeptical about the cost and the results. I called the office, and was scheduled for a consultation right away. I went in with a skeptical attitude since I had already seen another Orthodontist who had been very quick to quote me a price and had barely examined my mouth. I immediately felt at ease with the friendly and genuine staff. I met with Dr. Celenza, and he seemed extremely confident about the ability of invisalign to fix my mouth. He took quite a few pictures of my mouth and even offered to sand and even out my front tooth that I had recently chipped on a glass of water. After his office manager explained the cost of my treatment, I decided to think about it. The price was highest quote that I had come across and I was nervous about being able to make the payments, I would have to think about this. A few days later, I received an email from Dr. Celenza thanking me for my consideration, and attached to the email were all of the pictures that he had taken of my mouth. After deciding that this was something I really wanted to do, I called the office and explained to his office manager that I really wanted to do this, but the monthly payments were going to be hard for me to make. To my delight, she offered a different payment plan that would make my monthly payments less over the course of a longer time period. I went and had my digital impressions taken, and within two weeks I received a very excited call from the office telling me to come in to get started with my treatment. I wont go far into the details of wearing my invisalign, but overall, I’m so glad that I went with this Orthodontist. Throughout the 10 months of treatment, I was always treated as a high priority by his office and all of the emails that I sent to Dr. Celenza were answered in a timely maner. What also impressed me was his plan to fix all of the other imperfections with my smile, not just the gap. I had run into a few complications with a crooked cuspid that was refusing to turn, and when I expressed those concerns, I was not brushed off or ignored. Dr. Celenza made modifications to my top tray and attached a tight band to the crooked tooth, which more aggressively turned the tooth around. It was quite painful…..but it certainly fixed the tooth. My treatment was finished in the exact time frame that I was initially quoted. I was delighted with the results, and have been complimented on my smile. If anyone is considering invisalign, I highly suggest visiting this office for a consultation. Keep in mind, this treatment is intense, painful, and expensive. It takes a very focused commitment to push through the pain and annoyance of having to wear the trays. Make sure you approach this with a determined and positive attitude, or it will not be a good experience. If your ready to fix your teeth and are willing to undergo invisalign, this Orthodontist is definitely the man to guide you through it.
