Gain Confidence Through a Smile Makeover

Tuesday, June 7th, 2016

Your smile is one of the first things people notice about you. Feeling self-conscious about it can make you uncomfortable around others in both social and business situations. To remedy this problem, many people who feel this way seek the help of a professional for a smile makeover. These dentists can help you repair your teeth so that you have confidence and want to show off your beautiful smile. It can make you feel healthier and give you a better outlook on life overall.

What are some of the procedures that a smile makeover can involve?

Teeth whitening
Years of drinking coffee or red wine, or habitually smoking, can give your teeth an unattractive yellow or discolored appearance. No matter how much you brush, you just can’t remove tough stains like these. Professional teeth whitening tackles discolorations and gives you back a sparkling, bright smile.

Gap removal
Although some people don’t mind small gaps between their teeth, many people want to hide the fact that their teeth don’t align perfectly. Traditional braces have been the solution to closing gaps in the past, especially large ones, but now you have more options. Clear braces and retainers, such as Invisalign, can help you achieve straight teeth without having to wear embarrassing metal braces as an adult.

Chip and cavity repair
A smile makeover gets rid of imperfections in your teeth so that you look and feel better. Cavities can be filled, and chips can be repaired with various techniques available today that will leave your teeth looking natural and attractive.

Restoration of missing or decayed teeth
Teeth worn from decay, or completely gone because they couldn’t be saved, put you in a very embarrassing situation when it comes to showing your smile. Also, your entire health can be negatively impacted. A smile makeover offers several procedures to choose from to correct these problems and get you smiling again.

Why It’s Important to Visit the Dentist

Saturday, May 14th, 2016

With little improvement in the economy, reduced wages, job loss, and health care costs on the rise, people are cutting expenses wherever they can. Often, people start by forging dental appointments. Other times, dental visits are seen as optional and fall off the list of priorities.

Before you cancel your next appointment, think about the importance of dental care:

  • You can save time and money. Everyone has heard the old adage, “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.” Keeping regular checkups on the calendar allows your dentist to monitor your oral health and catch a small problem, such as a cavity, before it turns into a larger issue, like a root canal.
  • Dental visits can improve your appearance. If you want to maintain a vibrant smile, regular appointments can help. A professional cleaning and polishing will remove build up, allowing your smile to really sparkle.
  • Routine checkups keep your oral health in good shape. Gum disease, tooth decay, and TMD can compromise your dental health. Without treatment, these issues can wreak havoc on your mouth and cause serious damage. At your regular appointment, your dentist will discuss options to address any problems and protect your smile long-term.
  • Your dentist can detect other health problems. In many cases, your mouth shows signs of overall health issues. For example, X-rays of your teeth can indicate the development of osteoporosis, a condition that causes weakening and brittleness in bones.
