Why Your Smile Matters
Your teeth have many crucial functions. They help you chew, and they help you speak clearly. But just as important is their role in making an attractive smile. A smile is the most recognizable human expression, being recognized more quickly than any other expression. Not only that, but an attractive smile is vital to a good first impression. It’s what most people will notice first about you, and it’s what people will remember about you from a first meeting, more than they’ll remember your clothes, your scent, or even your words.
Your smile is an accessory to every outfit, appropriate on formal and casual occasions. It can help you make positive personal and professional relationships. It can make it more likely that you’ll get a date, and more likely that you’ll get a job. It improves your quality of life and the quality of life of those around you. It can even improve your salary.
Put it all together, and your smile is one of your most important personal assets. You need to have a smile that you feel comfortable with and confident sharing.
What Cosmetic Dentistry Can Do
- Discolored teeth
- Chipped teeth
- Worn teeth
- Gaps between teeth
- Crooked teeth
- Missing teeth
Discolored teeth can make your smile look unhealthy and aged. Usually, this is caused by staining compounds that attach to the surface of your teeth. Teeth whitening can get rid of these stains. However, if teeth don’t respond to whitening, we can use porcelain veneers to make your teeth as brilliant white as you desire.
Chipped or Worn Teeth
If your teeth have been chipped or worn down, it can make you self-conscious about your smile. When this happens, we can repair your teeth using porcelain veneers or dental crowns to make your teeth look long, beautiful, natural, and healthy.
Gaps Between Teeth
If you’ve got a gap between you teeth, you might think it’s cute and attractive. But if you don’t we can close that gap with porcelain veneers, dental crowns, or Invisalign.
You might think that straightening crooked teeth requires braces, but we offer several options that can give you straight teeth without braces. Invisalign can be faster than braces and uses clear plastic aligners instead of metal wires and brackets to straighten your teeth.
In the past, missing teeth meant that you either had to live with the hole in your smile or get dentures. Now we have dental implants, which are almost like getting another chance at a natural tooth. They look so natural that no one will guess you’ve lost teeth.
