Smile Makeover Winner: Tori Pennington

With her wedding day on the horizon, Tori Pennington decided to attend a wedding show in Downtown Louisville. There she expected to gather some ideas about photographers, florists, caterers, decorators and gown fashion. But what she never would’ve expected was to win a smile makeover! Tori says that when she saw the Mortenson Family Dental booth and our Smile Makeover contest, “I thought I’d enter because if I won, I could get rid of my annoying yellow spot and gap.” “But,” she adds, “If I didn’t win … then oh well, I’d get some toothpaste, toothbrush and floss.” Now less than a month later and after just a few visits with Dr. Schuler, her smile is brighter and better than ever before!

Everyone’s complimented me on it. I posted a before and after picture on Facebook and I got several likes and everything. No one really surprised me with their reaction; however, I do find myself smiling a lot more while walking.

Tori’s treatment plan with Dr. Schuler involved two weeks of whitening, one filling and then a midline space closure with composite. A midline space closure is when a dentist closes a gap between two teeth, most commonly a patient’s two front teeth (maxillary central incisors). Dental composite is a type of synthetic, adhesive resin that dentists use to restore teeth or, in Tori’s case, close her gap.

Dr. Schuler was awesome! He was really nice and super funny!

Tori says the response to her new smile has been overwhelming and even her fiancé, who tagged along for her treatments, was happy with the results and surprised at how quick the treatment was. We asked Tori whether or not she was excited for her big day and she said, “Yes, I am super excited!”

I’m even more excited to get my wedding pictures taken with my new smile.
