My experience with Dr. Zahedi was nothing short of amazing. She is such a professional and extremely knowledgeable within her profession. I expressed to Dr. Z that I’ve always wanted to have that “Colgate” smile. Being the sweet person she is, first and foremost she assured me that my smile was very beautiful just the way it was. Yet and still she was more than willing to help me achieve my goal. 

I will admit I was very afraid. What will the veneers look like? What will my temporaries look like? From what I’ve heard from collegues and friends, temporaries can be a bit firghtnening because they dont look exactly like the permanents. When Dr. Z put my temporaries in I was beyond pleased! They looked absolutely amazing! The thought that my actual veneers would look even more phenomenal was baffling to me! 

During the procedure she was extremely gentle, efficient, warm and she checked in on me constantly. I can honestly say that I never experienced any pain. Dr. Z was such a joy. She is so kind and so beautiful. Lets be honest, having a beautiful dentist makes the experience that much more enjoyable, especially beause you are staring at them for a few hours! Lol! 

Once my temporaries were successfully in place, Dr. Z made it a huge point of hers to check in on me. She would send a text ocassionally to make sure that everything was ok. If I ever had any concerns she was always available. 

Now, lets talk about the final product! What can I say? I am extremely happy! The best part about it all is that my family and friends cant even tell that I’ve had work done! They simply say “You look really beautiful! You are glowing! Somehting is different about you. I dont know exactly what it is but you look GOOD!” 

How cool is that? I look at my teeth everyday and I feel like a new woman! I am far more confident than I’ve ever been! I can’t stop smiling and that is a beautiful thing! 

If you are looking for a wonderful dentist, who is very professional, highly skilled within their craft, absolutely beautiful, very friendly and extremely caring…. Dr. Z is your girl! Please pay her a visit and have the dental experience you never knew you could! I promise, you will not regret it! 

I am just in awe of her artistry! I LOVE my new smile!
