As an infant I was born without both of my lateral incisors (the teeth next to my central teeth, so my canines which normally would be on the sides of my mouth were now front and center. This genetic abnormality made me resemble a vampire). All my life I hated my smile and I knew as an adult I would choose one special doctor that would help me learn to love my smile for the first time. At the age of 30 searching for the best doctor on the East Coast was no easy task, but I was diligent and after weeks of searching through hundreds of doctors online I found the nyccd.com site and reviewed Dr. Emanuel Layliev’s background and decided to meet him for a consult.
Upon my arrival from Maryland to New York the staff was surprising pleasant and Dr. Emanuel Layliev was the most humble doctor I’ve ever met in my short existence. He reassured me he could fix my smile, explained in detail how the process would proceed and answered all of my questions. I was sold as he flashed his “PERFECT” smile and told me I would be ok and I trusted his every word. He rushed my case with the lab and received my veneers in a week due to an upcoming surgery and placed my permanent veneers on 6/17/14. I was unprepared to look in the mirror for fear that I wouldn’t like the results, but when I did all I could do was cry. I was so overcome with joy that I sat in his chair and cried like an infant. I couldn’t believe it, but due to his expertise and craftsmanship he made me look like an entirely different person. They were simply beautiful and I walked out of the building floating on air.
I am forever grateful to Dr. Emanuel Layliev because he gave me my confidence back and I will spend the rest of my life telling anyone who will listen what a perfectionist he is. Thank you so very much Dr. Emanuel Layliev. You have no idea how much you’ve positively impacted my confidence. Everyday I get to wake up and smile without covering my mouth, or becoming self conscious about how I look. The power of self love is priceless and without a doubt I will be back for my bottom row. Even now i look in the mirror for traces of my old self and smile as I realize that old me is gone. Every time I smile, I am now reminded of you and how hard you worked to help me step out into the world with my head held high.

Dear Dr. Layliev,
Hi Dr Layliev,
My husband and I have been so stressed for the past 9 years (since her accident) because we did not know how this would turn out. Thank goodness we were introduced to you! All our heartache went away when we saw the result! We (and Ricki) could not be happier and we have you to thank!!
With all our gratitude,

Dear Dr. Layliev,
Thank you so much Dr. L. We very very lucky to have found you. It’s funny, years ago–after the initial work by Jeff–one day when Robin needed a touch up, only you were available to see her. We were both worried: how could anyone compare with the “best”?
But we actually loved the work you did for Robin. I remember you slightly altering the shape of two of her teeth and it was subtle but we are teeth people –big time– and loved the change. You made her child teeth a little more sexy and grown up by squaring them off, just as she was coming into her own as a young woman. It is that attention to detail that you possess just as your mentor did. And you will have the same success (though you already do!) in your career for sure. After that Robin only requested seeing you from then on.

Dear Dr. Layliev,
I just got home from NY. Jeff and I were great friends. I know he is smiling down knowing that he made the right choice with you. And I know Jeff very well. He would be proud, as he should be. Thank you for giving me back a reason to smile, in more ways than one. You are an amazing dentist, and I can’t begin to tell you what it means for me to trust someone else with my teeth. Jeff and I talked a lot about this over dinners. He clearly was so diligent in picking his predecessor. I’m actually more proud of him than you! Please let me know what I can do to help promote you. Again, I can’t thank you enough.

It was unlike any other dental office from the very first time I walked in to NYCCD. From the paintings on the walls to the exceptionally attentive staff and, of course, Dr. Layliev, who created a sense of partnership on a road to success rather than your routine doctor-patient relationship. All of it proved to make a difference when I look at myself in a mirror today. I do have a great smile and am reminded of that everyday by complements from people who knew me beforehand and others who didn’t. The results are truly beyond expectations. Thank you Dr. Layliev and thank you all at NYCCD! I know it is going to sound like a cliche but you are changing my life in a very exciting way…Thank you! Really!

I consider myself extremely discerning about appearances, so I was nervous about having work done on my teeth. But Dr. Layliev quickly earned my complete trust. Not only is he extremely meticulous, thorough and diligent, he is a true artist, who made sure even my temporary veneers looked impeccable. He’s also just a sweet, warm-hearted person who always took time to address my questions or concerns and never rushed or cut corners to make my smile absolutely perfect–and it is!! Dr. Layliev–thank you for all your hard work!

I came to Dr. Layliev several months before my wedding desperately hoping that he could somehow do what three years of braces couldn’t. I assumed it would take months to get my teeth even close to picture-ready. Wrong! In four visits, my teeth were perfect. I still have trouble believing it. Dr. Layliev has a calming ease about him that made visits a pleasure and his ardent insistence on perfection made me feel as though he were working not on my teeth, but his own. Not only did Dr. Layliev close the previously triumphant front gap; but he also remedied three years of dental neglect, created a guard to help me stop grinding my teeth at night, and gave me a take-home whitening kit so I could freshen up right before the wedding. It’s almost inconceivable how quickly and attentively he addressed every issue and his intuition was always spot-on. My teeth are gorgeous a nd I feel confident going into the big day. Thank you, Dr. Layliev.

I would like to sincerely express my gratitude to Dr. Layliev who performed numerous procedures for me. Whether it was a routine visit or an emergency he was always available for me. Being a perfectionist myself I can confidently say that the work that Dr. Layliev did was excellent. His knowledge and kindness have made working with him a pleasure. I would not hesitate to recommend him!
