Before I get into the amazing experiences and results I have had with Dr. Grafman, it must be said, that she is not only a talented dentist with an incredible eye but also an amazing person to work with! I also never write reviews for anything, but my experience with Dr. Grafman was so wonderful that there was no way I couldn’t share it with others! I have had issues with my teeth ever since my teenage years…everything from grinding to TMJ. I have always been uncomfortable with my smile. My teeth always tilted inwards, they were small because of grinding, and my smile was uneven due to an under developed upper jaw. Due to these issues, I have had more retainers and appliances than I can count on two hands. Since I was 16-years-old, I have been to over 10 dentists and orthodontists. I have been told everything from, “You need to have your jaw broken and ‘reshaped’ in order to correct my problem,” to “there’s nothing we can do for you.” I have been told that Invisalign would SOLVE my issues to then be immediately told by another doctor that Invisalign would do NOTHING for me. Needless to say, when it came to my dental history, I feel like I had been through the ringer and I had almost given up. Enter Dr. Grafman and her optimistic, open mindedness toward my dental situation. After taking a good look at my teeth, Dr. Grafman knew with confidence, exactly what needed to be done to make my mouth and teeth more physically comfortable as well as giving me the added benefit of cosmetically looking 1000 times better. Dr. Grafman explained to me what she would do to my teeth with great clarity. There was no question that I wanted to go ahead with her plan to reconstruct my teeth by building up my teeth using bonding to create height and then building out my teeth to fix my uneven smile and make my top and bottom teeth fall properly, top over the bottom (which they never did before.) My in-office experience could not have been better. It was absolutely pain free, down to the shot of Novocaine I needed in order for her to fill an old filling before beginning the reconstruction. Have you ever heard of a doctor who can shoot you in the mouth with Novocaine without you even feeling it?! Well, it happened! After the Novocaine I actually said, “Did you do it yet?” That’s when I knew the procedure would be smooth sailing! Dr. Grafman was able to completely revamp my teeth and smile in a day and a half. Her assistant made me as comfortable as possible by having Netflix playing throughout my entire procedure 🙂 I was able to watch the entire 2nd season of “Orange is the New Black.” The time went by in a flash! Dr. G and her assistant work really well together, are extremely efficient, and I never felt like time was being wasted while I sat in the chair. When I was finished, I legitimately could not believe the results! My teeth looked straight, bright, and beautiful! And not in a “fake” or “Chiclet” looking way which had always worried me. But rather, in a super-model, perfect smile kind of way. Dr. Grafman nailed the color using a combination of different bonding shades- they are definitely white, but not in a fake-looking way. She is truly an artist when it comes to tooth color, shape, and size. When I showed my husband, friends and family, they could not get over the results! So much so, that my mom is already planning to go in for the same procedure sometime soon! Amanda, the office manager, could not be sweeter and easier to work with. She breaks things down in a very easy-to-understand manner and is always willing to speak with me about any questions I have. Dr. Grafman’s assistant is also absolutely sweet and willing to do anything and everything to make you comfortable as a patient! I could go on and on about how great I think Dr. Grafman and her team are. I have already referred her to countless friends and family who plan to see Dr. Grafman for their dental needs! I honestly could not be any happier with my results- my teeth look better than I could have ever imagined and I feel really confident with my smile.
