What a Great Smile Can Do for You

Did you know that your smile is one of the first things that others notice about you? It’s in the top 3 besides a person’s eyes and physique. Your smile can tell someone immediately if you are happy, sad, confident, having a great day, angry and most other emotions. Countless studies have been done to examine the full impact of a smile. Studies show that simply smiling at another person can help boost their mood, especially on a bad day. Smiling yourself—even if you don’t feel like it—can release feel-good hormones called endorphins that can make you feel happier.


The company that created teeth-straightening Invisalign (which we offer) also created a study to see what a first-impression of a person’s smile would show. This study involved speaking to over 2,000 people on the street and comparing 2 pictures side-by-side. One person had a crooked smile, while the other had a straighter, whiter smile. The participants didn’t know it was a study about smiles. This is interesting, as they determined that based on looks alone:

  • Participants viewed people with a straighter, whiter smile as being more beautiful, confident and successful.
  • They were 72% more likely to trust someone with a better smile.
  • Participants were 45% more likely to hire someone with a better smile than someone without an improved smile.
  • Someone with a straighter, whiter smile was more likely to go on dates, based on the smile alone.

These are just a few examples of what a complete smile makeover can do for you!


Teeth Whitening

Your teeth can say a lot about you, and although you may try to keep your teeth looking pearly white forever, there are several factors that can get in the way and result in a discolored, yellow smile. Some of the most common contributing factors to a duller smile include:

  • Smoking and other forms of tobacco use
  • The natural aging process
  • Certain foods and drinks, such as wine, soda, coffee, and tea
  • Fluorosis
  • Poor dental hygiene
  • Certain medications
  • Illness

Regardless of why your teeth are stained, we can help give you a complete smile makeover with our revolutionary teeth-whitening service. Zoom in-office whitening is a safe and simple process that uses advanced and effective methods to leave you with beautiful, long-lasting results. In most cases, this treatment takes about one hour. The dentist will clean your teeth, cover the lips and gums to protect them from whitening products and will apply a hydrogen peroxide gel to the teeth. We will leave it on there for 15 minutes, then shine the Zoom LED lights over your teeth. This penetrates the tooth’s surface and dissolves discoloration and stains. This process will be repeated an additional 2 times until you have a dazzling smile makeover.

Porcelain Veneers, Bonding, Bridges and More

Check out some of our other services to give you a smile makeover:

  • Porcelain Veneers: Want teeth like the hollywood celebrities? Porcelain veneers are what you want! These are tooth coverings that are custom-made for your teeth. We take off a thin layer of your enamel, and then attach the porcelain veneers to your teeth. You’re smile will instantly be straight, perfectly white and will hold up for years to come.
  • Dental Bonding: You may only need small changes made to your teeth. You can get those with cosmetic bonding. We patch up small areas of the teeth with composite resin, then harden it so your teeth look naturally beautiful.
  • Dental Bridges/Implants: When you’re missing teeth, it can cause tooth loss to happen all over, as well as tooth decay, a weakened jawbone and mushy gums. We can replace one tooth (a custom-made implant) or a row of teeth (dental bridge). This can restore strength and functionality to your smile and provide you with a noticeable smile makeover.


When Should You Consider Cosmetic Dentistry?

Our dentist may recommend our cosmetic dental services to improve the appearance of smile flaws such as:

  • Crooked or crowded teeth
  • Misshapen teeth
  • Stained or yellowed teeth
  • Gaps and spaces between teeth
  • Chipped, broken, or cracked teeth
  • Severely worn teeth
  • Teeth that appear too large, too small, or too pointed

Why would we recommend cosmetic dentistry for these issues? For crooked or crowded teeth, these can have serious consequences for your risk of tooth decay and gum disease. When the teeth are too crooked or stuck together, they are difficult to clean. This creates pockets of tooth decay and infection all over that can lead to tooth loss, severe tooth sensitivity and gum disease.


Stained or yellow teeth may simply be a cosmetic issue. However, your smile says a lot about you, and you want that smile to dazzle. Stained and yellow teeth can simply come from drinking coffees, teas, wines and other drinks that have dyes in them. This can be fixed with teeth whitening treatments. When you have yellowed teeth or teeth that appear gray, you may have thinned tooth enamel. This, as well as erosion and worn teeth, can lead to tooth sensitivity that may become severe. We would then look into cosmetic and restorative dentistry options so your teeth look great and aren’t sensitive.


Other issues with cracks, chips, tall teeth or misshapen teeth can all be fixed to make you look the best you can be.
