Curtis has been through an intense journey, having been diagnosed with stage 4 melanoma and undergoing aggressive chemotherapy and radiation treatments. The good news is that he's now in remission and cancer-free. However, the harsh treatments took a toll on his teeth, leading to significant wear and tear, attrition, and radiation-induced caries. Beyond the physical discomfort, he felt his smile was fading, finding it hard to show his teeth when he smiled and experiencing pain while eating.

Since his recovery, Curtis has been focused on reclaiming the parts of his life that the cancer battle took away, with his smile being at the top of the list. He wanted to smile confidently again, free from pain and discomfort. The toll on his teeth had made him hesitant to enjoy meals, and he knew it was time for a change.
