Mother and Daughter Get New Smiles before Family Wedding

Apr. 2, 2019

Cynthia Amarosa, whose daughter was getting married soon, had always felt self-conscious talking to strangers. She was dreading having her picture taken for the wedding.

“I worried about how people perceived me because I had bad teeth,” she said. But then the Utica, New York resident read about Eastman Dental in the newspaper, and immediately went to the website to learn more.

“I had five implants placed, teeth whitening and six veneers,” Amarosa said, “and I was able to afford all of this work by coming to Eastman Dental.”  In fact, her daughter Samantha, the bride’s sister, decided to have her six front teeth done also before the wedding.

“A smile is the first thing people notice, and I’ve always been very self-conscious about mine,” explained the 23-year-old teacher’s aide. Samantha, who said her teeth were crooked and had an undesirable space, would quickly close her mouth if she thought people were looking at her. “I was really nervous, but my dentist at Eastman made me feel right at home, always joking with me,” Samantha added.

Samantha had her teeth reshaped, and porcelain veneers on six teeth. “All my friends and family say, oh my gosh, they look amazing!” Samantha said with a wide smile. “If it wasn’t a 2-hour drive, we would make Eastman Dental our regular dentists...everyone is extremely friendly.”

“I can’t say enough about the quality of work done,” Cynthia Amarosa added. The staff is professional, courteous and caring and the pride they take in their work shows.”

“I was so happy that day just to be able to stand with my daughter and not be embarrassed to smile,” she said. “It really has been a life altering experience and I couldn’t be happier,” Cynthia said.
