What were Mardi’s initial intentions in finding a dentist?
Mardi had healthy, functional teeth and simply wanted to go through the reconstructive treatment to improve her appearance. Seeing that Dr. Kovacevic has vast experience in cosmetic dentistry, she decided to contact him.
Why did Mardi choose Dr. Kovacevic over other dentists?
“I found Dr. Kovacevic’s website and liked all the info it provided. Also, it was local which was important to me. Although I looked at other sites afterward, I ended up coming back to Dr. Kovacevic’s website – they just seemed like they had everything.”
What was discussed during your consultation with Dr. Kovacevic?
Once a patient is interested in a cosmetic procedure, the next step is to meet with their chosen dentist to determine their next course of action and to learn what to expect. Mardi explains what was discussed during her consultation with Dr. Kovacevic prior to starting her reconstructive treatment.
“We discussed how long the procedure was likely to take, what the cost expectations were, and I described my goals to him in detail. After we talked about the details, Dr. Kovacevic explained his plan to me and how it would improve my aesthetics. The plan he set out for me made me feel very confident in the whole process!”
In what ways did Dr. Kovacevic make you feel comfortable?
While comfort is a priority for many dentists, Mardi is quick to point out that Dr. Kovacevic is not the kind of doctor to hand out painkillers unnecessarily. He has a thorough understanding of the anesthesia required for each part of the process. Mardi discusses her comfort level throughout the dental reconstruction procedure.
“Remember, this treatment takes time, and so every part of the process wasn’t quick and easy. While none of it was painful, some parts involved pressure and a grinding noise. However, Dr. Kovacevic used novocaine when necessary. He also was very polite and allowed me to take breaks whenever I needed them. Overall, he made it as comfortable as possible.”
What was the most challenging part of the treatment?
Even with every precaution taken to maximize comfort, there is still bound to be some challenges inherent in an 18-month dental process. Mardi explains why the noise was the most tedious part of the process and one that can’t be avoided in many dental procedures.
“Although I wouldn’t describe any of it as painful, some parts of the process were uncomfortable, mostly because of the grinding noise. To prepare for some of the treatments, he had to grind my teeth down, so that noise was the most challenging aspect of the whole thing.”
Would you say your appearance has improved because of this reconstructive procedure?
“Yes, it’s improved 100%!”
Would you recommend this procedure to others?
“Yes. If they want it bad enough, yes. It’s important to understand that it’s not an immediate fix – this was a lot of dental appointments and time. However, Dr. Kovacevic was really accommodating and kept me comfortable in every part of the process.”
