It is a beautiful Sunday morning in the Kemah, Texas. Sheri Kite and her husband of 38 years, Val, are out for a bike ride on their Harley Davidson. For Sheri and Val riding is a lifestyle, a kind of lifestyle that they enjoy immensely. Sheri is an active woman that does not fit into any single category. She is a very successful magazine and book distributor with a red-hot career that is keeping her very busy. She has raised three successful children, all married, and now she enjoys spoiling her three precious grandchildren. Sheri is a huge fan of NFL and college football and loves her rock and roll. These days, however, those who know Sheri have noticed something new – a great big smile that lights up the room. Over the years Sheri has spent a lot of time in the dental chair. “I have always had problem with my teeth, ever since I was a little girl.” says Sheri. “I have had lots of dental work. As much as I tried to keep my teeth, I end up losing some key teeth that left me very self conscious and I just either stopped smiling or somehow turned my head down and covered my mouth while laughing.” She continues; “I felt like a failure when it came to my teeth. Besides, I had to pick and choose what I eat. I ended up getting a partial denture but it never felt like my own teeth. It hurt when I eat and looked fake when I smiled. Besides, I hated having to take it out and put it in a glass of water every night. It made me feel old.” Doctors had told her that her remaining teeth could not handle a fixed bridge and partial denture was the only option available to her.
When I first met him, I was kind of nervous, I wasn’t sure if anyone could help me anymore… Val was very aware of Sheri’s unhappiness with her removable teeth. One day he suggested that she make an appointment with Dr. Fred Noie in Clear Lake. He had heard about Dr. Noie from a good friend. When Sheri talked to her friends about Val’s suggestion they also told her that they have heard great things about Dr. Noie. They told her that he could replace her missing teeth from start to finish under one roof. So Sheri made an appointment with Dr. Noie at Unicare Dental. “When I first met him, I was kind of nervous, I wasn’t sure if anyone could help me any more because after losing my teeth, I also ended up losing bone in the jaw and I was told that I did not have enough bone for dental implants. Dr. Noie was great, he reassured me that he can help me. He said, “Don’t worry about bone loss, I will replace your lost bone volume as well as your lost teeth.” Sheri also got a very good feeling about the staff at the Unicare Dental. “The staff was very helpful and friendly,” added Sheri.
Sheri was also very impressed that Dr. Noie took time and explained dental implants very thoroughly. “Dr. Noie gave me a lot of good information,” said Sheri. After taking to Dr. Noie, she decided that dental implants are the best for her and she decided to upgrade to dental implants. “Dental Implants are pricy, but I am worth it,” Sheri added.
Everything went as planned and in a few months Sheri had a complete smile makeover. She received her dental implants and later corrected her damaged and unsightly teeth with porcelain crowns and veneers. For the first time in many years she felt good about her beautiful smile. “It has really improved my quality of my life.” Sheri referred to her new beautiful smile. “I can eat whatever I want and smile as big as I want.” She continued, “When I looked at my new teeth and smile for the first time in the mirror, I could not hold my tears back, so I cried and gave Doctor Noie a big hug. I was happy, ecstatic, phenomenally excited. What a great moment. My wish finally came true thanks to Dr. Noie and his wonderful staff”. When I asked her if she would recommend dental implants to our other Bay Area residents she replied “Yes, if it is done by Doctor Noie.” She said, looking back, she would do it again in a heart beat. “It gives me more confidence; it is a part of me. It makes me feel more attractive, and younger. All my friends see that I don’t cover my mouth or hide my smile anymore,” Sheri added.
