Holly’s Journey

Finding Life-Giving Transformation Through Cosmetic Dentistry Restoration in Albany, N.Y.

For Holly, the end of one journey was the beginning of another. The Capital District resident was overjoyed to hear her medical team declare her free of breast cancer, but she felt there was an element missing from her story. She promised herself that when her cancer treatment was complete, she would finally create the smile she had always wanted.

“What I wanted more than anything was to have a style that would provide a certain amount of elegance,” she says, “while at the same time creating some more confidence in myself.”

Holly’s journey to her ideal smile was a long one. It included orthodontic treatment with braces, followed by cosmetic dental implants and porcelain crowns. But every step was worthwhile.
“I was very happy the day they told me I was cancer free, but I was missing my smile,” she says. “Dr. Frank gave me my smile back, and it means the world to me.”

A Collaborative Approach

Holly first came to Albany Smiles based on Dr. Frank’s “wonderful reputation.” And what she found was the perfect team to walk her through her smile transformation.

“The moment I walked in the door of Albany Smiles, it was a warm, welcoming, safe environment,” she says. “I could tell right from the very beginning that Dr. Frank was very concerned about me. He had a great deal of respect for me, and he always listened to what I had to say. My input was valued just as much as his input.”

Together, Holly and Dr. Frank created a plan for Holly’s journey of transformation. It was a path that felt a little daunting to Holly at times, but the Albany Smiles team was by her side at every step of the way.

Combining Cosmetic Dentistry Solutions

The first step to Holly’s ideal smile involved traditional metal braces. It’s something that gives Holly some amusement now when she looks back at photos from her retirement to see herself with braces. “I enjoyed them,” she says. “I could tell they were leading to some place that I wanted to go.”

Once all of Holly’s teeth were in their optimal position, Dr. Frank used a combination of cosmetic dentistry solutions to create Holly’s beautiful new smile. First, he used dental implants to replace the missing & hopeless teeth. Then he completed a full-mouth restoration — placing porcelain crowns on most of Holly’s natural teeth, focusing on the teeth that are most visible when she smiles.

Because crowns are designed specifically for each patient, Dr. Frank was able to fine tune the size, shape and color of the crowns to achieve the level of elegance that Holly desired.

“At no point in time did I ever feel any pain,” she says. “At each and every step, Dr. Frank was there for me. We had a lot of laughs together.”

“My Million Dollar Smile”

With so many steps, Holly’s transformation was a long process. She’s grateful for Dr. Frank’s compassionate approach and passion for his work, as well as the top-of-the-line technology he uses to achieve the cosmetic dentistry result his patients are looking for.

“You can tell that he’s an individual who enjoys what he does,” Holly says. “Each time he has a success story with a patient, you can see in him that he feels that success too.”

Not a day goes by that Holly doesn’t reflect on the impact her cosmetic dentistry journey has had on her.

“Everytime im brushing my teeth, or I’m just smiling, I know that we made it,” she says. “It took a number of years to get there, but without Albany Smiles and without Dr. Frank, I would not be sitting here with my million dollar smile. I love it.”
