You know how you can walk into a room and immediately feel the vibe of the place? One of the first things I always notice, when I walk into Dr. Rick Coker's Smile Studio, is the welcoming, almost homey, feeling. You'll first meet Mary at the front desk and Dr. Coker will greet you with a smile in the hallway, it all feels relaxing and sets your nerves at ease.

I find this extra special because Dr. Coker is a master at what he does. If you want a new smile, you don't have to go to Dallas or Houston, because he IS the premiere cosmetic dentist you're looking for — right here in East Texas. His office is at 921 Shiloh Road in Tyler.

There have been many times I've been in other doctor's offices and I would feel myself tense up a bit. But here, it's more like spending time with new friends — who also happen to be the very best at creating beautiful smiles, and thus, changing lives.

They offer:

  • Teeth whitening with state-of-the-art technology. (Get up to eight shades whiter in just 45 minutes!)
  • Teeth straightening with ClearCorrect clear aligner system
  • General wellness, such as gum health and missing teeth
  • Porcelain veneers

If you're interested in making over your smile, you can come in for a general consultation to talk about your teeth and possible solutions OR you can schedule a comprehensive exam to jump in with both feet.

Either way, this is a very customized solution, because you are unique — and so is the smile of your dreams. You will have the opportunity to learn more about all of the options available to you at your consultation. Also, if you decide to proceed, you'll even have the opportunity to try on your new "trial smile" to make sure it is exactly what you want before you receive your new smile to share with all the world.

I love hearing success stories like Lee's:
