For more than 10 years (I’m 24 years old now) I have been extremely self conscious of my smile and how my teeth look. Every time I would laugh I would cover my mouth without even thinking. When I was 18, my wonderful father offered to look into possibly getting some sort of cosmetic work done for me as he knew how much this bothered me and affected my overall confidence. Over the last 5-6 years, I have been to dozens of consultations with different dentists (including having an appointment to start the procedure and then cancelling the day before because I had a horrible feeling about the dentist). Dr. Kernagis was the LAST consultation that I ever had, and for good reason. On the first visit, Dr. K took the time to take x rays and pictures from all different angles and explain to me in detail the options that I had. He was so nice and patient and willing to answer all of my questions. We then set up another visit where he used the pictures from the previous visit to digitally show me what the teeth could potentially look like after Invisalign and veneers. He even took into consideration how the veneers will affect my bite, something that no other dentist I spoke to even thought about (both of these visits were completely free, by the way). I explained to him that my father would be paying for this and he does not live close by so I’m going to have to call him and put him on speaker phone to explain everything. Both Dr. K and Lei the office manager were extremely patient with both me and my fathers questions, they were willing to speak with him on the phone and work with him. I’ve done A LOT of research on veneers and the pricing of veneers and yes, the price was on the higher range but definitely not out of the ordinary. Not to mention, when it comes to something as important as your teeth and your smile, I would rather pay a little more for the highest quality. The entire process was so smooth and stress-free. The entire kernagis team is absolutely amazing! I had a time crunch and desperately wanted to have this done before my sisters wedding and the women at the front desk, Lei and Lori were incredible with working me into the schedule no matter what. The entire experience was amazing and Dr. K is truly an artist! I could not be happier with the results. I cannot express how this has forever changed my life. My smile is now so much bigger and brighter! I am now so confident every time I smile and I can’t count how many compliments I have received! Thank you so much to Dr. K and his team, I am forever grateful!!
