The smile holds special power for us and for those around us. Specifically, when it looks bright and healthy.
Benefits of an attractive smile
Multiple research studies have revealed the benefits of having attractive teeth; from more success at landing a job or promotion to better interpersonal relationships. One would think that it is personal confidence that is the foundation for these things; but that isn’t so. Other studies related to appearance show that humans natural, and subconsciously, connect the appearance of teeth to personal attributes, such as friendliness, sincerity, and trustworthiness.
Whether for the expansive benefits that come from an attractive smile, or just because you want to look and feel your best, you may be considering how cosmetic dentistry can help you. What many people do right after thinking about cosmetic dental treatment is consider the time and monetary investment that will be required. At this point, no further exploration may take place. But it can! Some cosmetic treatments can makeover your smile in a single visit.
Due to the familiarity of the teeth whitening treatment, a large majority of patients seek to treat themselves at home before ever seeing their dentist. Professional care is really the only way to safely and successfully obtain noticeable results, and this need not take weeks. Our chairside whitening treatment is conducted in a meticulous manner, but achieves dramatic whitening in one visit that lasts little more than an hour from check-in to walking out the door.
Composite fillings aren’t really a cosmetic treatment, but they sure can do a lot for the smile! Most people would prefer to erase the evidence of tooth decay, and we can do this with tooth-colored fillings while, at the same time, restore optimal strength to the damaged tooth!
Bonding treatment is a direct veneer process through which small imperfections can be disguised. Bonding may be performed to close a small gap, or to cover a chip or stain.
