Back in the eighties, I had to have crowns on a lot of my teeth, and I thought I was quite young to have it done, but they did it anyway. It was not by Edgewood Dental. It was by another doctor. Of course, I hadn’t met them then, but I needed 12 crowns, and so this being back in the eighties, I knew that this was time to do something about this.
I also teach school, and so there were certain things that I wanted to accomplish before I quit teaching school and before I retired, and that was one of the major things was that I wanted to replace. At that point in time, I was a patient of Dr. Gutman, but then Dr. Gutman left and I became Dr. Peak’s patient, and he and I discussed the replacement of the crowns. We did, and it was over the course of a while, and it started while I was teaching school, but then it continued into my retirement.
It was a good year, longer maybe, maybe year and a half, but it was a progression that was a beautiful experience. I’m glad I did it. I’m glad I had it done, and now I just think that my mouth is so much in better shape. I love the looks of it, because the other doctor had replaced them with gold crowns and then some other types, I don’t know what types they are, but it wasn’t a uniform look. I love it now.
And then also, under almost every one of the crowns was decay in teeth that was left, and I’m so thankful. I’m so thankful that we did that. And it was over and it was finished in January of this year, and I’m sorry it’s done, because it was a beautiful experience.
