“When I was growing up, our family didn’t have a lot of money. My Mom was a single mother, and she absolutely did the best she could,” Tyrone said. “But that meant that there were some things that we just went without.” Tyrone had stains on his teeth that came from a prescription medication a doctor had given him when he was twelve. “I had this stomach trouble going on, so I took the medicine, and next thing I know, there’s these brown stains on my teeth. And no matter what I did, I couldn’t get rid of them. Of course this happened right when I was trying to start getting serious with girls, so that whole situation ground to a halt before it could ever get going.” He laughed. “Now that I’m grown, and I have my own money, you can bet I’m going to get this taken care of.”
Cosmetic dentistry in Quincy MA includes many forms of dental treatment that focus on improving the appearance of your smile.

The tooth whitening you get in the Quincy dentist office is faster and more effective than the treatments that are available in grocery and drug stores.
“Having a good looking smile makes it easier to deal with people. A lot of times, before I got my teeth fixed, I didn’t want to smile at anyone,” Tyrone said. “And that’s not my personality. I’m a happy go lucky guy. I like to laugh and have a good time. But people couldn’t see that about me because I was ashamed of anyone seeing my teeth. Now that the doc has done his thing, my smile looks great and I’m letting the world see who I really am!”
