“Dr. Gorman and his staff were great. They made me feel comfortable and at ease throughout the whole process. I was able to accomplish my goals, and now I have the smile I was looking for. They are a top-notch and professional dental team.”
– Pam M.
Pam came to The Gorman Center for Fine Dentistry because she was concerned about her crowded lower teeth, old fillings, and worn, fragile upper front teeth. Dr. Gorman carefully took all of her dental conditions into consideration and created a well-balanced “smile makeover” plan.
Pam opted for orthodontic treatment to make sure that her long-term dental appearance and health would be its best. The thorough planning by Dr. Gorman and the commitment Pam made to the orthodontic timeline allowed a beautiful result. Now Pam has the brighter more prominent and youthful smile she was hoping for.

“I once hid my smile because my teeth were stained and discolored, but now my confidence is restored.”
Olga sought out The Gorman Center for Fine Dentistry and Dr. Gorman’s care because she was self-conscious about the brown stains on most of her teeth. She grew up in an area in Mexico where the fluoride in the drinking water was too concentrated, causing her tooth enamel to look brown and spotty. Also, her top front teeth had worn down and appeared flat across, robbing her of a youthful look. She asked Dr. Gorman to widen her smile and wanted a bright, but natural look.
Dr. Gorman carefully planned to enhance Olga’s bite and create a strong and long-lasting result. Her new smile is more feminine, happier, and follows her lip-line as she smiles, filling in the side spaces nicely. The color is vibrant but very natural in hue and value.
Our Master Ceramist, Edgar Jimenez, hand sculpts, hand paints, and fires dental ceramic materials. Dr. Gorman and Edgar team up to create natural-looking dental makeovers. Both Dr. Gorman and Mr. Jimenez are credentialed through the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, making this unique duo combining art and science hard to find anywhere else.
Olga is now proud and confident to smile without a second thought!
“The quality of care and workmanship of Dr. Gorman and his staff are exceptional. Not only do I have a natural looking smile but I have a healthy smile. Thank you, Dr. Gorman.”
Heidi had a history of having a near full mouth rehabilitation from 20+ years ago. They were of the porcelain to metal variety and were starting to break down. The unrestored lower front teeth were severely worn, and there was gum recession to the point that many of the metal understructures were starting to show at the gumlines. The gum recession also was uneven and aesthetically displeasing.
Heidi knew there was something new we could do, and we were able to restore her full mouth with porcelain-only restorations after doing some minor laser therapy to even up the gums and create natural-looking gum/tooth interfaces. Heidi feels her smile is completely refreshed after her full mouth rehabilitation by Minnesota dentist, Dr. Gorman.

“My husband thought I was crazy having my smile enhanced, telling me I didn’t need it. After I had it done, we went to dinner that night and he said, ‘Your teeth look really good!’ Now everyone tells me how natural and pretty my teeth are. Even when a dentist looks at them, they always remark what a ‘nice job’ was done.”
Suburban Dallas resident, Kathy, had never liked the flared appearance of her teeth and her old “ugly” crown in the front. After consulting with Dr. Gorman, she decided to reposition her teeth through the use of orthodontics (braces) with the intention of replacing the old crown in the front after braces. Once the braces were removed, we whitened her teeth using the Zoom! in-office system.
Following the whitening, Kathy decided she wanted to improve the shape of her front teeth. Thanks to ceramic crowns by Minnesota dentist, Dr. Gorman, she now does even her most serious horseback riding with a big smile on her face.
“Dr. Gorman and his staff always put me first. Thanks for a great smile.”
Scott was concerned about his worn front teeth and the fact that they seemed small to him and had spaces between them. He felt like he had “little kid teeth.” The wear was due to an uneven functional bite problem, and he did have small teeth for his face and the size of his dental arches.
Scott’s porcelain veneer restorations were designed to fill all the space with proper length to width ratios in all the front teeth, giving him a very natural looking restored smile. Scott’s smile is now very uninhibited, thanks to porcelain veneers by our North Oaks dentist!

“What a great feeling, finally being able to smile with confidence. Ever since I was small, I never felt like I could smile without feeling bad about the way my teeth looked. Now, after many years and Dr. Gorman’s expert care, my smile is perfect, and it just feels so great to smile with confidence. The care I received helping me through the treatment was a breeze. They made it painless and stress-free. What more could you ask for! I highly recommend Dr. Gorman’s care.”
Karla was congenitally missing her lateral incisor teeth on either side of her two front teeth. Over the years, her teeth shifted as a result of these missing teeth, creating an unbalanced bite; left untreated this could lead to further wear and breakdown of the teeth and jaw joint.
By examining her entire mouth as a system, cosmetic dentist in the Minneapolis-St. Paul area, Dr. Gorman was able to provide her with a harmonious treatment plan addressing the functional concerns, but more importantly for Karla, addressing her aesthetic desires to have beautiful, even teeth and a smile she’d be proud to show off. Now her true beauty shows.
“It’s all about fit and finish, and Dr. Gorman is a master at both.”
Paul travels extensively and has a very busy lifestyle. Living several hours from the metro area, his time was very valuable. After interviewing several other dentists, he appreciated the attention to detail and the benefits of working with an onsite lab.
Paul’s opinion played an important part in his smile design, from color to shape. During his smile design, we were able to maximize his appointment times to accommodate his travel schedule while completing his smile transformation in less than a month. His final result is a beautiful smile achieved “quickly,” just as he desired.

“Since Dr. Gorman transformed my smile, I notice how people light up when I smile at them. Thanks, Dr. Gorman for your incredible skill, care, and kindness. I’ve never had a doctor or staff care about me so much as a patient. You’re great!”
It’s always gratifying to see what full mouth dentistry does for our St. Paul patients. Ed was concerned because he seemed to always have a dental problem. One thing got fixed and something else would pop up. Like a lot of people in their 50s, 60s, and 70s, he had a hodge-podge of dentistry in his mouth mostly done one tooth at a time with no master plan.
After a comprehensive evaluation and well-coordinated plan, Ed had full mouth reconstruction done to restore his mouth to natural function and aesthetics. All functional, structural, and biological issues were handled in the process, and the aesthetics were the icing on the cake for him.
“Dr. Gorman is fabulous! I wouldn’t trust any other dentist with my mouth.”
Pam had a nice smile, but she wanted more. She was unhappy with the darkness that had begun to show around her current dentistry and was looking for better options. Having had problems in the past with failing dentistry, longevity was a concern.
To address this issue, our comprehensive dentist in the Minnesota-St. Paul area paid particular attention to her bite function to ensure stability and strength. Through the use of modern materials, we disguised the darkness and discolorations with a combination of porcelain veneers and crowns, creating a dramatic and natural, full smile. Pam loves life and it shows.

“Simply put, Dr. Gorman is exceptional – a true artist!”
Michelle deals with clients face-to-face, her smile being an important factor. She had started to see the signs of age in her smile, staining, yellowing, and oversized teeth. Knowing that newer materials were available, it came down to finding the right dentist to update her smile.
Michelle knew what she wanted, was comfortable that we listened and understood and would be able to deliver a natural outcome in our St. Paul area office. Porcelain veneers gave her a whiter, brighter, more naturally contoured, and portioned smile. The outcome is all that she could have imagined and more.
“After losing my front teeth in a severe car accident, The Gorman Center quickly became an extended care team and were very supportive throughout my recovery. Losing my teeth was just an addition to all of my other injuries, but as a 16-year-old, seemed like a top priority. After a few weeks in the hospital, Dr. Gorman arranged a time for me to come in and within a few hours had given me back my smile. I had additional issues with a root canal and discoloring, but the Gorman Center was always there to help and refer me to other resources.
I wore temporary caps on my two front teeth for a few years before getting my beautiful ‘movie star’ veneers. To ensure my smile would be beautiful for the rest of my life, I decided to wear braces for the second time and have Zoom! whitening treatment before I got my veneers. I truly admire the work of Dr. Gorman as he has given me a natural smile that receives countless compliments. As The Gorman Center staff continue to monitor and improve my overall oral care, I am grateful to have found such an educated and caring team.”

“My experience with Dr. Gorman was exceptional. As a model, I need a naturally beautiful smile. I couldn’t be happier.”
“I always thought that I had a nice smile, but Dr. Gorman and his staff took it to a new level. Now people actually stop and comment on what a great smile I have. And, these people have no idea I had the treatments with Dr. Gorman. Literally, right after my treatments with Dr. Gorman were complete, I would get at least one comment a day on my smile. Once a day! Now, over a year later, there isn’t a week that goes by that someone doesn’t bring it up to me. I think Dr. Gorman proposed and delivered the ‘total solution’ for my needs. I liked that.
I’m an attorney and image is very, very important, both in terms of getting and keeping clients. I believe that my clients feel better about my skills and me as an attorney because of the way I present myself. And, my smile is critical. I can only say ‘thank you’ to Dr. Gorman and his staff.
I would recommend Dr. Gorman and his staff to anyone who takes their looks and image seriously. Remember, I thought I had a nice smile before I went in. I was totally surprised by the reactions that I continue to get… all of them positive. They really care for their patients. That is evident from the time you walk in until the time you leave. The staff is always upbeat and happy. I enjoyed walking in there!
I saw all of the ads in Mpls.St.Paul magazine and chose Dr. Gorman from all of the other because of his credentials and location. If you really want to give yourself the best chance for success, I would recommend Dr. Gorman to anyone. You will not be disappointed!”
