After decades of dental work and expensive procedures, Dr. Spears had a mishmash of different toned implants, broken posts, defective bridges, and glaring holes where teeth should be. And he was told there would be more procedures needed with no end in sight. It was a bad experience to say the least. After that Dr. Spears decided to look for a better solution.
“I figured why not just go get full implants and be done with it?” remembers Dr. Spears. “They’re strong. They’re sturdy.”
Because it is not a small dollar investment, Dr. Spears equates his choosing The Marquis Center to provide his ideal smile to the decision one makes when buying a car. You want quality proven over years of excellence.
What impressed Dr. Spears with The Marquis Center was more than just a track record of success. “It went beyond that. When I first went in there, they treated me like family. They still treat me like family. They make you feel special.”
The other thing that impressed Dr. Spears was that The Marquis Center offers a custom smile. He didn’t want a bright white “Hollywood Smile.”
He still has his bottom teeth and wanted his full arch upper implants to match them. Dr. Spears got the natural, age-appropriate smile he wanted. Even more impressive, says Dr. Spears, is that the procedure really didn’t hurt.It was a long road to get there, but in the end, Dr. Spears has a carefree smile he and his beautiful wife Betty Lou can be proud of. And he can finally eat things like popcorn again.
Sometimes what seems like a big investment can actually save a lot of money in the long run. “I always had problems with my teeth. If I had just done this when I was in my 40’s, I would have been so much better off,” summarizes Dr. Spears – saying so with a smile.
“There are seasons in our lives where we end up putting ourselves last,” explains Pat.
After a childhood without access to dental care, as an adult Pat began experiencing the trauma of cracking and failing teeth. Pat started to research dental implants, but at the time she and her husband had two daughters in school. She didn’t want them to go without the way she had.
“I wanted the best for them,” explains Pat. This included braces for both girls. Again, Pat’s needs were put on the back burner. Pat would visit the dentist when she could, spending all day in the dental chair and being charged offensive amounts of money. However, these fixes always turned out tobe what Pat calls “Band-Aids”. They were temporary at best, and in the end she was still cursed with a smile she couldn’t stand looking at in the mirror.
She started to withdraw. Her husband said he saw her spark starting to fade.According to Psychology Today, confidence is not a fixed characteristic. Rather, it can be improved on over time by taking actions to support a healthy self-image.
For Pat the magic to reclaiming her self confidence was as simple as investing in a customized smile through The Marquis Center. With their daughters grown and with families of their own, finally, it was time for Pat and her husband to make her smile a priority.
“I took care of everyone else for so long. Now, it was time to take care of myself,” she says.
Pat had full mouth dental implants performed at The Marquis Center– replacing both her top and bottom teeth. She was surprised by how little pain and recovery time was involved. And, she started getting compliments right away.
“If I had kept doing Band-Aids, I probably would have spent two or three times what I paid for the implants,” summarizes Pat.
Not only did Pat save money in the long run, she also got her confidence back. And that is priceless.
“From start to finish I have never been so impressed by everyone in this office. The professionalism and friendliness is outstanding! I have had years and years of fillings, crowns and root canals. Every dental visit was more of each. Now I have a beautiful smile and never have to deal with any of those issues again. I was treated with great care during my procedures, receiving calls at home to check on me and continued attention to detail through to my last appointment!! I highly recommend this procedure and this fabulous group for any and all of your dental needs!!”

Marquis San Antonio Patient
After an informative consultation with our doctors, Kathy decided to take the plunge and get a “double”: implants and teeth replacement on both the top and bottom of her smile. The restoration procedure results have been life-changing for Kathy.
With the new teeth, I feel younger,” says Kathy with pride. She was so inspired by her new smile that she added a new hairstyle to go with it. “I don’t look like I’m in my 60’s anymore.”
In fact, the teeth replacement procedure was such a positive experience, Kathy’s husband Charlie decided to see what The Marquis Center could do for him.
As a young man in the Army, Charlie had a surgical procedure on his mouth. This osteotomy made Charlie’s teeth susceptible to damage later on. Like Kathy, Charlie longed to have a confident smile again.
After seeing how much The Marquis Procedure helped his wife, Charlie had a full arch replacement done for his top teeth. “It’s worth it,” says Kathy of The Marquis Procedure that dramatically improved the lives of her and her husband. “We are very active now. Having teeth makes you want to go out more. Now I can smile at people and eat food.”
“My husband loved me without teeth, but he loves me better with them,” laughs Kathy.
“At first, we were worried about the cost and the time, but we are so happy we did this. It was well worth it.” reflects Kathy.
When it comes to having a smile that is customized for you, The Marquis Center is where the magic happens.
