Tara Patton Receives “All About the Bride” Makeover

Dr. Capati and his staff recently donated their time to create a dream smile for one very lucky bride. Tara Patton was selected as the winner of Capati Dental’s “All About the Bride” Makeover Contest. Contestants entered the contest by applying online at CapatiDental.com and uploading a photo. Ms. Patton, who will be married this September, was selected from several finalists after a comprehensive consultation with Dr. Capati.

“I am so excited to be getting married,” says Patton. “But I have been dreading the wedding photographs. I broke my front tooth in fourth grade and, although it was fixed, the yellowing of my other teeth over time has made it stand out. During college I was without insurance and could not afford additional dental work to correct the problem. Ultimately, the offending tooth had to be pulled, leaving a large gap on the side of my smile. Since then, I have always been embarrassed about my smile, and I try to hide my teeth with my hand in photographs.”

“I was so surprised and excited that I had won the contest,” adds an elated Patton. “From the time I walked into Dr. Capati’s office until the makeover was completed I was treated with such kindness and respect. Dr. Capati is highly educated and professional, and he did an excellent job of explaining each procedure and every step of the process.” As the contest winner, Ms. Patton received all her dental work and restorations free of charge. The missing tooth was replaced, a bridge was repaired, 10 teeth were crowned, her bottom teeth were whitened, an old crown was replaced, fillings were restored, and she received a root canal. In addition, the bride received a Spa Gift Package courtesy of Capati Dental and Shari’s Spa, which includes a full body massage and facial for the bride.

Lab services were also provided by Chris Bell, CDT at Dental Arts Laboratories Signature Restorations in Springfield.

Patton says, “I would recommend Dr. Capati to anyone in need of reconstructive or cosmetic dentistry. He and his staff are wonderful, and it was a great experience. This is a dream come true for me, and I will be so proud to show off my new smile on my wedding day. My clients and people I meet are no longer focused on my dental flaws – they are focused on me – and my fiancé loves my new smile!”

The practice focuses on general, cosmetic and restorative dentistry, TMJ, and sleep apnea. Dr. Capati is currently accepting new adult and pediatric patients. For more information or to schedule an appointment contact Capati Dental today.
