We all know that an appealing smile not only looks good, it creates a positive impression as well. An attractive smile relays a sense of having good health standards. And, because people who feel good about the appearance of their smile are more-frequent smilers, they are often perceived as being more outgoing and positive.
However, the benefits of an attractive smile go much deeper than can be seen, as research has shown. Smiling activates endorphins, the ‘happy chemicals’ in your brain. Surprisingly, research reveals that smiling, even when you don’t feel like smiling, can convince the brain to release endorphins. Pretty powerful!
If you are not smiling as often, or as openly, as you’d like, today’s dentistry offers a wide variety of options to create a more confident, appealing smile. These include:
Whiteners – There are a number of ‘drug store’ whitening products that can make improvements in the shade of natural teeth. However, the degree of whitening is often minor and doesn’t last very long. Too, when you add up the costs for repeated upkeep, the expense typically outweighs the results. Our Zoom II in-office whitening system provides a much higher level of whitening that lasts for a long time.
Porcelain Crowns & Porcelain Veneers – Porcelain provides the most natural opalescence and longevity available in dentistry. Porcelain crowns and veneers can beautifully recreate a smile for the most natural look and feel possible. Porcelain’s durability is also exceptional to any other material used in esthetic dentistry.
Bonding – When teeth are chipped, uneven, gapped, discolored or narrow, bonding is an affordable method to correct these types of flaws. The process involves the application of a durable, tooth-colored material to natural teeth.
Invisalign – When crowded or crooked teeth detract from a smile, moving them into proper position does two things: it creates a more attractive smile AND corrects bite alignment. A proper bite helps you avoid problems such as worn or chipped teeth, headaches, sore jaw joints and ear ringing. In addition to being Certified for Invisalign and Invisalign Teen, we offer traditional orthodontics through our Orthodontist, Dr. Jerry Wesley.
Cosmetic Dentures – For individuals who wish to replace all upper or lower missing teeth with full dentures, modern techniques and materials enable us to create an attractive look that fills out the mouth for a more youthful appearance.
Dental Implants – Implants are positioned in the jaw bone, just like natural tooth roots were once held. Through this foundation, they restore your ability to bite and chew the foods you love comfortably and confidently. And, since the teeth attached to the implants are custom-designed for each individual, creating an improved smile appearance is a normal part of the process.
Smile enhancements can make such a dramatic difference in one’s appearance, self-esteem, self-confidence and sense of outgoing-ness. And, many people are surprised when they learn that their new smile can be completed while they make affordable monthly payments. Begin with a no-cost consultation to discuss the smile you desire.
