The signs that someone is embarrassed by their smile are painfully obvious: maybe they cover their mouth when they laugh, smile with a closed mouth, or even limit how much they speak. What makes this especially painful as a dentist is knowing that there are many treatment options available to completely transform any smile. And while some might argue that cosmetic dentistry is elective and, therefore, unnecessary, I think that anything that can improve a person’s quality of life is a worthwhile and necessary investment. If there is anything you’d like to change about your smile, here are just a few of the ways I can help:
Teeth whitening is one of the most simple and affordable ways to change your smile. Whether you chose to do your whitening in my office with the Zoom! system or in the comfort of your own home with a take-home kit, a brighter smile can be yours in no time at all.
Because they can correct almost any imperfection, porcelain veneers are the MVP of cosmetic dentistry procedures. Veneers are thin shells that are permanently bonded to the front surface of your visible teeth. They can be used to correct the color, alignment, shape, and even size of any tooth.
Crooked teeth is one of the main reasons people are ashamed of their smiles. For those patients, I am proud to offer Invisalign. Invisalign uses a series of clear (almost invisible) aligner trays to gently shift your teeth into place instead of brackets, bands, and wires. The trays are removable, so you can eat what you want and clean your teeth with ease. Best of all, Invisalign can usually straighten your teeth in a fraction of the time required by traditional braces!
One of the best parts of being a dentist is seeing a patient be completely transformed by a treatment. Why hide your teeth when there are so many treatments that can give you a smile to be proud of?
