A testimony

“The purpose of the treatment was to correct the lack of a tooth that I had not had since birth, and which bothered me aesthetically when I smiled.The result of the procedures was exactly what I expected, that is, I was able to have all teeth, aligned and beautiful. Congratulations to Dr. Pinheiro Torres and the entire team!”
