You don't have to attend your next high school reunion...

But if you do, why not make a splash with a beautiful new smile?

High School Reunions Can Be Tons of Fun

Many of us, including yours truly, experienced the ugly duckling syndrome when we were in high school. As part of that experience, we never seemed to get the attention we desired from our classmates. Often, for whatever reason, we want to attend our high school reunions to not only catch up with some folks we miss, but to reintroduce ourselves, the people we have become, the newer better version of ourselves.

Some people really have little use for their high school reunions. Others can't wait to attend. In one case, a woman who was planning to attend her high school reunion decided that she wanted to make the best impression she could, starting with her smile.

The patients objective was to be able to smile with confidence.

Smile Makeover - The Process

When I look at a smile, I focus on the smile line of the teeth in relation to the lips. I analyze the teeth shape and color and then design the changes on a model with wax initially.

After the patient and I agree on the design, I transfer the concept to their teeth and allow them to test drive the provisional crowns( Caps) or veneers. I confirm that the aesthetics and phonetics are acceptable and then transfer all this information to my laboratory.

The day we deliver the porcelain crowns (caps) and veneers to the patient is one of excitement and celebration. In this case, when this patient returned to my office after her reunion, she was nearly in tears.


She said, “You know all the young men who never noticed me when I was in High School came up to me and talked to me now as old men. They said that they didn’t remember me having such a beautiful smile. I know the smile that you created Dr. Spada helped make that happen. Thank you.”


As a dentist I take pride in knowing that the services I provide make a difference in the lives of the patients I treat. I treat all kinds of patients for all kinds of reasons. Some need work to improve their health. Some need work just to walk a little taller, smile a little wider and show the world the best side of themselves they can.

For all my patients, I am grateful for the opportunity to serve your needs, whatever they may be. I am grateful that you are able to experience your life, and allow those around you to experience you with a bigger brighter better version of your smile.
