cosmetic dentistry girlCosmetic dentistry is the only complete dentistry, because only cosmetic dentistry recognizes that looking attractive is an essential function of your teeth. If you are unhappy with the appearance of your smile, you know your smile is not a luxury — it’s a daily necessity, and you are painfully aware of every occasion when your unattractive teeth keep you from smiling or laughing in public, or doing so only while covering your teeth. Fortunately, most of the common complaints people have about the appearance of their smiles can be corrected with cosmetic dentistry.

The Importance of an Attractive Smile

Our teeth perform many essential functions for us. They chew our food, help us speak, provide support for the muscles, fat, and skin of our face. Perhaps the most important function is being attractive.

How important is an attractive smile? Surveys of singles looking for a romantic partner show that both men and women consider an attractive smile to be the most essential feature they look for (even more than good grammar!). And surveys also show that when you meet someone for the first time, what they’re most likely to remember about you is your smile — not what you wore or what you said.  The benefits aren’t just personal: hiring managers say they are more likely to hire people with an attractive smile–and offer them more money!

All Our Dentistry Is Cosmetic Dentistry

Cosmetic dentistry isn’t just a collection of procedures — it’s a philosophy of dentistry. Cosmetic dentistry means approaching every procedure with an eye to preserving the appearance of your smile. Every procedure we offer, from tooth-colored fillings to Strickland FOY Dentures™, is designed to ensure that you leave our office with a smile that you will be proud to show off on every occasion.

What Can Cosmetic Dentistry Fix?

There are many common complaints people have about the appearance of their teeth. Often, they can be corrected in multiple ways.

  • Discolored teeth: Discolored teeth can be corrected with teeth whitening or with porcelain veneers.
  • Chipped or cracked teeth: Damaged teeth can be corrected with cosmetic bonding, porcelain veneers, or dental crowns.
  • Gapped smile: A gap in your smile can be closed with cosmetic bonding, porcelain veneers, or orthodontics.
  • Crooked teeth: Crooked teeth can be corrected with orthodontics or porcelain veneers.
  • Missing teeth: Missing teeth can be replaced with dental implants, a dental bridge, or dentures.

During your consultation, we can talk about the benefits and limitations of each of your options and recommend the one that best fits your needs.

A Smile Makeover Designed for You

Many of us have more than one concern about the appearance of our smile. We might need multiple procedures to achieve the results we’re looking for. If that’s your situation, we can help. Instead of using just one cosmetic procedure, we can design a combination of procedures to achieve the results you’re looking for, while sticking to any limits you might have.

Need to get results by a certain date? Let us know and we’ll select procedures that can be accomplished by that time. On a tight budget? We’ll find lower cost options that can get you as close as possible to the goal. We can even stage procedures so that you can complete one and pay for it before starting the next. And don’t forget that we offer financing options. Squeamish about certain procedure? We’ll design a plan that avoids them.
