"My cracked, discolored and crooked teeth are now beautiful teeth."
Dear Dr. Bittner,
As a child, my parents invested a lot of money in my teeth (braces, regular visits to dentists etc). The result? A beautiful smile. Unfortunately, as an adult, I didn’t embrace the practices taught to me to maintain that beautiful smile.
At age 38, I hadn’t been to see a dentist in 15+ years. With age my teeth had become brittle, thin, cracked, crooked, and discolored. My once beautiful smile had become a source of self consciousness. I knew it was time to take action.
I came upon Dr. Bittner Jr.’s advertisement in a local publication. Upon research, I got a nothing but positive feedback about Dr. Bittner Jr.. I kept the ad and carried it with me for at least a month before I got the courage to call and make an appointment.
Starting with the first phone call, every member of the staff made me feel comfortable. They were courteous, open, non-judgmental, knowledgeable, and honest. After a face to face visit with the staff and doctor, I was completely confident to entrust my entire dental health to Dr. Bittner Jr. & staff.
The results?? Life changing! Nothing was scary, nothing was painful. I am soooo happy with my smile! My cracked, discolored, and crooked teeth are now beautiful teeth. I look forward to my 6 month maintenance check-ups and know that not only my teeth, but my overall health, are better. Everyone in the office continues to be awesome!! I get tons of compliments on my smile and credit it all to Dr. Bittner Jr. and staff.

"The final results of my dental work far exceeded my expectations"
Dear Dr. Bittner and Staff,
I wanted to write you a note to let you know just how much I appreciate everything you and your staff have done for me. 1 knew that when I first walked into your office the challenge that I presented you with was not an easy one. The work that I just had done by my previous dentist was awful, to say the least. The veneers were big, bulky and darker than my original teeth. Her answers to my complaints were that was how they were supposed to look and she and her staff thought "they looked wonderful", and besides, there was "nothing further she could do". I was absolutely devastated. Never before did I feel so much shame in smiling. I would even cover my mouth to talk. There was also extensive damage to my teeth and gums.
Anyhow, your calm and reassuring demeanor gave me hope. You didn't seemed bothered by the additional work nor did you charge me to undo what my previous dentist had done. As for the final results of my dental work, they have far exceeded my expectations.
As for your office, there's something funny going on there, I'm beginning to think you've employed "The Stepford Staff". Everyone that I have encountered at your office has been so far beyond polite and kind. This is truly a rare commodity, especially in this age of rush, rush, rush.
I do apologize for rambling on but I don't think I'll ever be able to fully express my gratitude to you and your staff, Thank you, thank you, thank you!
P.S. Just try to stop me from smiling now!!!
"I've gotten so many compliments since my smile makeover."
Having my teeth done was one of the best things I have ever done for myself. Not to mention a powerful investment in my self esteem.
Twenty years ago, when my daughter was turning four, I was making her a fairy wreath for her birthday to add to her dress up box. I unwittingly used my front teeth to close the wire ends together and wound up breaking both of my front teeth, which left a triangle opening when I smiled. I scramble to find an emergency dentist to do the repairs. He was able to bond the two teeth but at the same time he filed them down to make the bonding that much stronger. On the one hand I was so excited that they were no longer broken but very unhappy with the over all length of my teeth.
As the years went by and time took its toll, discoloration settled in and slowly the bonding material began to wear down. I was extremely unhappy with the way my smile looked. By this time one tooth was shorter than the other and I could see the color difference between the natural tooth and the bonding material.
I finally bit the bullet (pardon the pun) and decided they needed to be repaired. Dr. Bittner and Shoreh were so gracious and confident they could make them look better than before. And . they were right.
I have gotten so many compliments since my smile make over. Funny thing is no one is quite sure why I look better. They are so subtle that I find I smile all the time. I am no longer self conscious of how my teeth look. I could not be happier and have never regretted the decision to have all my top front teeth veneered!
"I would have never imaged myself investing in Cosmetic Dentistry."
Dear Dr. Bittner,
I wanted to express my sincere thanks to you and your staff for your professionalism and fantastic work in making my new dental work and smile a great success. I am extremely happy with the way that my new smile looks and could have never imagined having teeth that look this nice. I've always been a little self conscious about my smile and if you look at pictures of me now, you can sure see that's a thing of the past.
You and your staff and clearly perfectionists, and with something so important at stake, I am very glad you are. Everything turned out perfect and it is thanks to your meticulous work and attention to detail.
I would have never imagined myself investing in cosmetic dentistry, but when my front tooth broke in half one day, I knew I was going to have to have my teeth fixed "right" and that's when I went on a search for the best dentists. I did a lot of research and it all kept coming back to you. I'm glad it did because the results speak for themselves.
Everyone in your office worked so hard to make sure I was comfortable and that I had everything I needed. You were always extremely personable and attentive. I've never had such great service in a dentist's office before so I wasn't quite sure how to handle it all! But it was great and I want to thank you again for everything.
Best wishes to you and your great staff!
My smile make over story...
"My smile makeover was the best investment."
Ever since I could remember, I felt that my smile didn't fit the rest of me. I didn't like the fact that my teeth were so short and were kind of crowded. In my profession, it is very important that even your teeth look fabulous. I was really excited when I heard about "miracle" of cosmetic dentistry.
Miracle is definitely what I call it. My smile make over was just the best investment I've done for myself. Now I have a perfectly spaced, absolutely gorgeous smile, and I am trilled to show it off. I get a lot of compliments on my dazzling smile and I love it. I have even gotten two promotions at my job and I don't know if that is because of my beautiful smile or the confidence I have in myself to perform a better job.
I am absolutely ecstatic with my gift to myself, which is one that truly keeps on giving.
"I've always wanted a full, white smile."
Being an athlete all my life and playing so many different sports, I got my share of severe and minor injuries. Among those the most traumatic one was when I injured my lower jaw and broke my lower front teeth. I had them fixed but I was always conscious of the way they looked and on top of all that I hated the fact that when I was smiling, I did not show any teeth. All my life I envied other people with long, white teeth who when smiling lighten up their whole face.
I wasn't aware of the options available to me until I talked to my dentist, Dr. Gerald Bittner. He showed me the possibilities today's technology in dentistry offers and I was very excited about what I saw. I thought I had to live with my short, yellow and worn down teeth for the rest of my life, not to mention the terrible looking crowns that I had done to fix my broken teeth.
I've always wanted a full, white smile instead of my chipped and uneven teeth. After going through my smile make over, the outcome far exceeded my expectations... and my world was changed.
My friends and family and even in my practice, my patients, have all noticed me smile more and more these days. I have more confidence to show my bright smile and enjoy life more than ever before. My smile make over has made an immense difference in my reaction with people and has made me a more sociable person. My bright white new smile is what I've always felt I should have been born with.

"It was a big decision to undergo treatment for the veneers"
YOU ARE BRILLANT, DR. BITTNER!
Please accept my sincere thanks for my "new smile!" I just wanted to let you know again how thrilled I am with my "new smile." Even perfect strangers tell me what a beautiful smile I have. It was a big decision to undergo treatment for the veneers, but it was the best decision I have ever made. My smile went from OK to dazzling!
I am very happy to refer new patients to your practice. In fact two of my friends are now patients in your office, and one of them just had her "new smile" finished. She is ecstatic with the results.
You are a very skillful and caring practitioner and have selected a very competent and helpful team for your office. Visits to your office are a pleasure, and I am made to feel special each time I am in your office. Additionally, I would be remiss if I didn't thank you again for your assistance when my new car had a dead battery. You truly went the extra mile that day, and I surely appreciated it.
BEST WISHES FOR YOUR CONTINUED SUCCESS IN 2007!

"I had braces for 3 years and always had dental trouble"
Dear Dr. Bittner
I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for the way my new smile has changed my life. Before I came into your office, I was very unhappy with my smile. As a kid I was in and out of the dental office, had braces for 3 years in my late teens and always had dental trouble. I had a root canal on my front tooth and I was left with a very unhappy outcome. I dealt with that old smile for 10 years and I decided that life was too short, so I needed to do something about it.
My experience in your office and with your staff was amazing. I had never gone into a dental office where I felt at ease from the moment I walked in. The thought of having your smile reconstructed is a little scary, but everything was explained and my expectations were set. It was a walk in the park!
Now, I can’t stop smiling! I jump in front of a camera every chance I get. My family, co-workers and friends noticed the change immediately. Everyone commented on my movie star smile.
I have recommended a few of my co-workers and friends to Dr. Bittner and they were all impressed with his expertise.
Thank you Dr. Bittner.
"Dentists offered to give me a new smile for no charge"
Dear Dr. Bittner,
I am writing you today to personally thank you and your wonderful staff for my million dollar smile. THANK YOU! I want to tell you why I chose you for my life changing smile.
First of all I have always been scared to death to go to the dentist. Pretty ironic considering my brother, his wife and my uncle are all dentists. Unfortunately when I was 10 years old, I fractured all of my upper anterior teeth while sledding with my brother. I will never forget the pain of the snow hitting my freshly exposed nerves. Just as bad was the experience I went through at my dentist office while he used his slow speed drill to try to repair them. This experience left me with a total fear of even sitting in a dental chair, and in fact I break out sweating and almost faint just for a cleaning.
I have spent the last 15 years in the dental profession. I have been in thousands of dental offices throughout my career. Hundreds of dentists including some of the best in the world have offered to give me a new smile for no charge (including my family). When I saw the work you had done on some of my friends I knew you were the dentist I wanted to see for a new, natural looking smile, no matter what the cost.
Once I met you and your wonderful staff, starting with Sue, I was impressed. The fact that all of your work is made on-site by Shoreh is extraordinary - this is simply not done at other offices. Her talents and artistic eye compliments your knowledge, expertise and experience in creating beautiful smiles.
I thought that flying in from Indianapolis would be a problem - it wasn't and quite to the contrary it was a blast! My experience in the office was also fun, you guys made me feel relaxed and carefree - something I never had experienced in any other office. Maybe it was the warm blanket, headphones, reassurance or just VIP treatment, I loved it!
Every single day I wake up and see my smile. Every single day I am complimented on my smile. Even other dentist's cannot tell if they are real or veneers! You and your team are incredible! I want to let everyone know that if they are considering you for their dental work that they can call me at any time to discuss my experience
Thank you Dr. Bittner, Paula, Shoreh, Sue and the rest of your team!
"My smile gave me confidence."
Dear Dr. Bittner and Team,
Having my 40th birthday quickly approaching, I decided to give myself a makeover present. Well, it has been very worth it! I have had, and continue to have many compliments on my new smile, making me feel young again.
My experience with the entire staff was professional, friendly and comfortable. I have been a patient now for over 14 years, and I have always had the utmost confidence that I was receiving the best care.
My new smile has also proven advantageous as I have had to recently interview for a new job. My smile gave me confidence, and it didn’t take me long to get a great job offer.
Thank you again to the whole Dr. Bittner team.
"I've lost track of the number of root canals, crowns and veneers I've had..."
Dear Dr. Bittner:
Thank you for my awesome SMILE! I have always been diligent about my dental care, but genetics and a childhood injury left me with a set of teeth that were a challenge to say the least. I’ve lost track of the number of root canals, crowns and veneers I’ve had through the years. I had every shade of crown one can imagine, so my teeth never looked uniform or natural. Photographs rarely revealed my teeth.
I was put at ease the very first time I stepped into your office. Sue, your wonderful coordinator warmly greeted me. She was so professional and personable, I instantly felt comfortable. My initial plan was to replace my front six teeth, but after reviewing your work - the amazing before and after pictures - I decided to replace all of the top teeth. During the consultation, you made me feel like a longtime friend. Your comprehensive knowledge and friendly demeanor made me feel very relaxed about the procedure.
When the day arrived there was no anxiety. I was comfortable and relaxed. The sedation worked wonderfully. I experienced no pain, and the temporaries looked perfect. I went home, rested for the day and was ready to face the world with no discomfort.
Returning for my permanent teeth I could not believe how natural and white they were, thanks to you and Shoreh, your ceramist. I went home and proudly displayed my new teeth to my husband. We immediately decided to have the procedure done to all my lower teeth also!!!
In addition, I am so grateful for your aftercare. You and your staff were always available and accommodating. The experience was so positive, I plan to continue with you for all my dental needs. I have NEVER had such thorough care.
Thank you for giving me back my SMILE,
"Every day I receive compliments how healthy and beautiful my smile looks."
I became a patient 3 years ago. My experience before that was always painful. It made me feel helpless for any improvement in my smile.
Then I met Dr. Bittner…my whole dental world changed! I love to come to the office. I feel special, beautiful and the only one who they are working with.
Every day I receive compliments how healthy and beautiful my smile looks. How white and “perfect” my smile is.
Thank you for changing my world with all the hard work you do.
"My teeth are shaped better, they are whiter and brighter."
When I came to Dr. Bittner, I was having my veneers re-done for the third time. My veneers had discolored twice and I was not happy with them. I was ready to have the same dentist that did them the past two times do them again. I was not looking forward to it and I was not sure of the outcome either. All I knew is that I was not happy with what I had, I wanted my teeth white again and to be shaped like my original teeth prior to veneers.
The staff at Dr. Bittner’s office was very helpful, caring and accommodating. I worked with them during the process. I was hesitant to go through the process again and I knew what I wanted. They took all of my concerns into consideration and took the time to answer any questions that I had. Their door was always open. They assured me that I would be happy with the outcome. They took good care of me during the procedure and they checked up on me when I was home. I would recommend Dr. Bittner. His expertise is unmatchable and his staff is excellent!
Dr. Bittner did an amazing job! See? My teeth are shaped better, they are whiter and brighter – I love them! I am very happy with the results and I get compliments on my smile all the time, even from strangers! It’s nice to receive genuine compliments and it feels good to have my smile back!
Thanks for everything!
"Most pleasant, pain free and comfortable dental experience I've ever had."
Dear Dr. Bittner
Thanks sooooo much for my beautiful smile! I just can’t stop smiling and I love the compliments that I always get from people who I don’t even know.
I felt at ease the minute I walked into your office. I think you have the most professional and caring staff and I felt very comfortable with everything. This was the most pleasant, pain free, and comfortable dental experience I’ve ever had. Now, my whole family is coming to your office and surprisingly, they look forward to their dental appointments. I would recommend you to all my friends for a superior dental experience.
Thanks for making a difference in people’s life!
"The smile makeover process was fast and painless"
HI DR. BITTNER
I just wanted to leave you with a brief note expressing my appreciation for the “smile makeover” experience. The process was fast and painless with a lot of positive support from your staff. I was really surprised by the effect the results had on others. Besides the obvious comments on how good my teeth looked, there was definitely a positive change in my interaction with others. People seem much more open, approachable and engaging than before. Everyday life is definitely more enjoyable. I would recommend this procedure to anyone. Thanks again.
"Now I even have more reason to smile."
After having my smile done, the experience was very exciting to see my transformation. I was always a person that liked to smile, but now I even have more reason to smile. There is usually not a day that goes by when someone comments on how beautiful my teeth are. To feel the happiness that this has brought to me, I only wish that more people could do this for themselves.
I felt tremendous comfort and confidence in Dr. Bittner Jr. and his team.
This is an investment that I will never regret doing.
Thanks again Dr. Bittner Jr. and team, you are very talented professionals.
"I've had kids ask me why I don't brush my teeth"
A NEW SMILE!
I’ll admit I was very embarrassed with the condition my teeth were in. I had not taken good care of them over the years and I was conscious of how they looked. I teach kids in martial arts and have had kids ask me “why don’t you brush your teeth?” That was extremely embarrassing! I had been researching for cosmetic dentists for quite a while but hadn’t found one that gave me a feeling of comfort. It was very important to me that I found the right person with the right staff and the right attitude! I did, it was Dr. Bittner!
It’s hard to put your fingers on just one thing that made the experience unique and special. There were so many little things that, put together, made it a most pleasant experience … well, as pleasant as a trip to the dentist can be of course. The customer care from the outset was wonderful and set the stage for the consultations, and that was even before I saw Dr. Bittner himself! The friendliness and concern of the staff was second to none; the professionalism all round was just outstanding and even the atmosphere of the office was refreshing and claming at the same time! I would heartily recommend Dr. Bittner and his staff to family and friends, even for routine dental work. Bearing in mind just how much I hate going to the dentist, that’s a milestone comment from me!
