When I was little, I had every single one of my baby teeth. When I lost my baby teeth, the two teeth next to my front teeth never came in. It is a hereditary thing. My grandma, mom, and sister were all missing theirs, so we were pretty sure that mine were not going to come in either. Ever since my adult teeth came in, I always had a gap right there and there was not anything I could do about it. When I did not have teeth there, I always felt self-conscious in middle school and the beginning of high school. I got a retainer with teeth in it. It made me less self-conscious, but I always had to take it out to eat and brush my teeth and it was always a hassle.
When I got my permanent teeth put in, I am so much more confident in myself. I love smiling for pictures, which is something I really did not like doing when I was little. I now feel confident everywhere I go, and everyone always compliments me on my smile. It makes me feel way better about my daily life in general.
I would encourage anyone to consider doing implants. It is a process, but Flatrock Family Dentistry really planned it out ever since we knew I was going to do it. They planned out the spacing and how my gum tissue was going to look. The way it turned out for me was perfect and I love my teeth now. I would highly recommend this process because of the way it has made me feel about myself.
I have been coming to Flatrock Family Dentistry since I moved to Greenville in 2006, it has been a long time. I have always been treated very good by everyone. It is very comfortable here and the care is great. The facility and technology are cutting edge. It makes it very pleasant to come to Flatrock.
I wanted to do treatment due to missing teeth and the teeth that I have are very thin. They were always getting broken which made it hard to eat certain kinds of food. I also wanted to do treatment due to health issues and sinus issues.
I started with orthodontics, so that we could get things straightened up and to a place we could get teeth placed at the right angle. Along with that, I had a lot of implant work with bone grafts. The result is what you see, and it was a 6-year journey with all of the work that needed to be completed.
In the beginning, I was skeptical because of the process, time, and the cost. Now at the end of it, it was very well worth it. Physically I feel better about myself and my smile. I am healthy and able to eat a lot of things that I could not eat before treatment. I no longer worry about teeth breaking. It was the right thing to do and well worth the journey. I am very thankful to Dr. Rouse for helping me get to where I am at. He did a great job, and I am pleased with everything.
I have been coming to Flatrock Family Dentistry since I was a kid and I recently made the decision to get veneers. I historically grinded my teeth so they were worn, which isn’t good health wise, but it also hurt how they looked. I was excited knowing that at the end of the process my teeth would look good and be healthy.
When I started down the process, I honestly didn’t ask too many questions about it as I trusted Dr. Rouse. The process took some time, but none of it seemed like a lot of work. Just little by little everything came together. Using Invisalign meant I never needed to have any sort of metal braces for realignment, which was nice.
I would suggest to anyone that is thinking about improving their smile, to just go for it. Have an open mind and trust the process. Dr. Rouse was excellent in making sure each step was done correctly and exact. In the long term, it’s very little effort for years and years of better looking teeth.
I have been a patient of Flatrock Family Dentistry since 1993. I have always been happy with my experiences. The team is kind, courteous, does a good job and they operate on hours that coordinates with my schedule. Everyone is always friendly and knows your name when you walk in. As a child and an adult I was very rough on my teeth.
I chewed ice and ground my teeth together. This left very little teeth left to work with. I didn’t want to do treatment for aesthetic reasons. I wanted to make sure I was going to be able to keep my teeth for the rest of my life.
I’ve been coming to Flatrock for many years now and am very happy with both my hygienist Marina and with Dr. Rouse.
A few years ago, following orthodontic work, I made the decision to touch up the appearance of my teeth with dental veneers, due to enamel erosion and wear from grinding my teeth at night for many years. The entire procedure for several teeth was completed in one day, with no discomfort at all.
The fit and appearance is now top notch, and I’m very pleased I had the work done. Dr. Rouse takes great care in making sure veneers and crowns fit exactly right, and I’m very happy he’s a perfectionist when it comes to my teeth!
After being a patient of Flatrock Family Dentistry for almost two years, I decided I had ignored my yellow, wide spaced incisors for too long. The enamel was starting to chip on the upper and lowers. It was time to address my mouth’s misalignment and save my central incisors. I needed an emotional boost for my ego after some difficult experiences with my health. I had full trust in Dr. Rouse and his team. The entire team is extremely competent, knowledgeable and they are always continuing their training and education. Now that my treatment is completed, I have a pretty smile and feel good about the health of my teeth. My advice to other patients considering treatment would be to never worry about your age. I am 63 and have no regrets other than waiting so long.
I have been coming to Flatrock for about 4 years. In the beginning, I didn’t trust most dentists. I have had some really bad work done. Flatrock Family Dentistry has helped me overcome my fear of going to the dentist! I was very nervous at first, but they were patient with me, explained everything and worked in phases making sure that I was comfortable.
I had gum disease and a tooth that was deemed my “corn tooth”. My bite was completely off and several front teeth had been slightly loose for years. Being a teacher, I was upset that I couldn’t smile at my students without feeling that I had horrible teeth.
Since completing my treatment at Flatrock Family Dentistry, all of my problems have been fixed and my teeth are beautiful and healthy! I smile all of the time now. My outside appearance finally matches how I feel inside – HAPPY!
My name is Belinda and I am 55 years old. Going to the dentist was not a priority in my books, but something that I could always do another day. I had a fear of any dental work, which stemmed from early childhood experiences.
About 30 years ago, I was diagnosed with an Auto-immune disease that caused severe dry mouth. I went along with no side effects, or so I thought. When my teeth started to deteriorate, it was a rapid decline that I ignored.
I sought out a dentist that wanted to pull them all and do implants at a cost I could not even fathom. I went a couple of months with this decision hanging over my head. I quite frankly was scared to death of this process.
My children stepped in and told me about their dentist that they had no fears or concerns about going to. They kept saying “just give them a call and I know he can help you out with a better decision”.
So I got the courage to make that phone call to Flatrock Dentistry and got an appointment with Dr. Rouse. It was the best thing that I could have ever done.
Dr. Rouse immediately put all my fears to rest and assured me that he could work with my teeth and that it was not necessary to pull them. So we started and finished in about 6-8 months.
I am able to smile again with pride because of all this office did for me. They did more for me than they will ever know. The special care Dr.Rouse and his dental crew gave to me everytime I stepped into that office, knowing my fears, was over and beyond my expectations. They are all heroes to me and my life is better for making the move to Flatrock Dentistry. Thank You Dr. Rouse for making this experience painless and giving me a reason to smile BIG again!!!
I am thankful for the opportunity to relay my experiences and feelings about Flatrock Family Dentistry. I have been very pleased with all the services I have received there. The front desk is very helpful and pleasant. The hygienist is very thorough. Dr. Rouse is also very thorough and checks for oral cancer and other things that no other dentist has done. He is very gentle and gives pain-free shots! He puts you at ease with his sense of humor and patience.
Dr. Rouse gave me six beautiful upper front teeth! When I was young, right after my front teeth had just come in; I fell on cement and put a big chip on one of my front teeth. The dentist at the time just filed all my front teeth off to match the one broken!! Dr. Rouse has improved my smile greatly. Thank you thank you!!
I had an abscessed front tooth when I was 19 and it has progressively turned darker. I’ve tried bleaching but I still see the discoloring. In addition to this, the other front tooth had a hair line crack, my canine was disproportionately larger and the tooth in between was heavily bonded; so four of my front teeth needed attention. I always notice this in pictures so I turn to the side and try to hide my front teeth when smiling for pictures.
After several months of planning and prepping Dr. Rouse has given me 2 crowns and 2 veneers. I absolutely love my smile now and enjoy showing it at every opportunity.
Our family has been going to Dr. Rouse for six years and love Flatrock Dentistry. They provide excellent dental care and the office staff is wonderful. Professional and expert care from reception to the final check out and everything in between.
Our family has been cared for at Flatrock Family Dentistry for twenty-two years. We have never looked back to consider any alternative; we can trust that Dr. Rouse, his partner and staff, give us the thorough and attentive care we need. Over time we have observed Flatrock’s continued investment in new technologies and processes to yield increasingly better results.
About ten years ago Dr. Rouse explained that I had a bit of an issue with my bite and front part of my teeth.
My upper and lower teeth aligned exactly on each other; my front teeth carried a risk of structural damage due to grinding during sleep and additional stresses. Despite whitening treatments my teeth were discolored. Dr. Rouse explained he could improve my teeth by applying dental veneers to my front teeth, and to re-shape them to create a slight, natural overbite. The veneers on the implants would provide a fresh look, compared to the somewhat aged and stressed appearance they had at the time. I had not needed braces in my youth; however, my smile would be enhanced as the veneers would be sized, shaped, spaced, and apportioned with symmetry and in a color range to match the rest of my teeth.
I went ahead with the treatment plan and was amazed at the results. I now have a properly aligned bite and a very confident smile. This was one of the best investments I ever made. Dr. Rouse was especially proud of his work, and each time he checks my teeth it reminds him of the great job he did for me. Since the time of the treatment I have learned how to sleep with a mouth guard, and after ten years my teeth look as great now as they did immediately after the work.
