City Dental Centers has made the focus of our latest articles the impact of dentistry as a whole on our patients. The reason for this is to emphasize the importance of proper dental care and its impact on patients not just in their oral and overall health, but also in the confidence with which they approach their everyday life. This latest article was written and based off a review submitted by a real patient, Kiki Runco, who was treated at our Pico Rivera location. Kiki had a life-changing experience with City Dental Centers and wanted to share her experience with others so that they can know the City Dental Centers difference!

You may already be aware of Kiki’s dental situation from our other article we shared here. This is not the conclusion of her story, as she is still being treated at City Dental Centers, but being as Kiki got her first glimpse at her porcelain veneers in her latest visit, we wanted to tell you how she likes them!

The Problem

As you might now be aware, Kiki suffers from a hereditary defect and has weak enamel. This means that her teeth deteriorate rather easily and quickly regardless of preventative measures.

Kiki has already had multiple extractions performed in order to replace damaged teeth. Dr. Sam had created a temporary mold to get Kiki by while her porcelain veneers were developed. During her latest visit, Kiki had her front veneers placed on her teeth and new temporary teeth placed while her crowns and bridges were finished.

City Dental Centers Provides the Solution


Porcelain veneers are one of the best options in any case involving improving your teeth, either for functional or cosmetic purposes. City Dental Centers is in a unique position to provide the best made porcelain veneers imaginable. The reason for this is that City Dental Centers develops their porcelain veneers using their own, patient-exclusive dental lab.

Why is this important? Quality control, of course. Few dental practices can claim they develop all their dental products such as veneers, bridges, etc in house. Many order from third parties to save money, meaning the quality suffers. When quality suffers, there’s no telling how short a period of time it will be before your visiting the dentist again for replacements. Fortunately for Kiki, City Dental Centers gave her quality veneers professionally made in their lab during her latest visit earlier this month.

“One of my teeth in the front had a very large cavity. It was particularly noticeable every time I smiled,” Kiki began. “With that fixed, I feel more confident. They look really clean and white. I feel now like I have a ravishing smile and feel more confident smiling.”

The Impact On Kiki’s Life

As with any full-mouth dental restoration, it takes time to fully experience the effects of the procedure. Kiki still has another visit to go before her work is complete, but she’s loving the results it has had on her dental health and the confidence with which she approaches her everyday life.

“My confidence has skyrocketed,” Kiki says. “I’m looking forward to finally having my final visit done.”

With only one more visit remaining and Kiki’s teeth already looking amazing, she looks forward to how great her teeth are going to look when there is no more work left to be done.
