Did you know?

According to a study by the Gallop Organization and Consumer Reports, dentists are among the top five most trusted professionals.


What do powdered fruit, talc, honey, dried flowers, mice, and lizard livers have in common? They have all been ingredients in ancient toothpaste and powder. Yum.


Attention Chocolate Lovers… Many dentists agree, raisins can cause more tooth decay than chocolate. Sticky foods, such as raisins and dried fruits, can stay on the teeth longer and cause more decay.


According to a study at the University of Connecticut, too much toothpaste early in life is responsible for more than 70 percent of fluorosis cases (staining or mottling of tooth enamel that develops when children swallow fluoridated toothpaste). Although this problem is only cosmetic, it is recommended children under six use a pea-sized amount of toothpaste and be reminded to spit it out after brushing.

From Dull to Dazzling: Enhancing Your Smile with Cosmetic Dentistry

Some people only visit the dentist for checkups or toothaches. However, dentistry is no longer reserved for preventive care and routine maintenance. Today’s dentists are artists, as well as doctors. Cosmetic dentistry seeks to create a more aesthetically pleasing and healthy smile. Many doctors practice functional aesthetics, which means they’ll create a smile that’s beautiful and functional through a combination of procedures uniquely designed to suit your needs.

Even patients who are meticulous about their dental care routines can have a less than spectacular smile. Drinking coffee, tea, or wine, smoking or chewing tobacco, and simply growing older can take a toll on your teeth, causing them to look dull and stained. Some medications can also cause discoloration. One easy, safe way to restore your smile is through teeth whitening.

Restorative and aesthetic procedures can be combined to create a smile that’s perfect for you. For instance, cracked, chipped, or unevenly spaced teeth can be made to look fresh and new with bonding or veneers. In fact, your dentist can even reshape your front teeth to create the smile you’ve always wanted. Crowns can restore function and beauty to instable teeth, and all-porcelain crowns leave no dark lines at the gum, so your smile will maintain an all-white, natural beauty. Bridges or implants can replace missing teeth and restore the underlying structure that makes your face full and youthful. These dental procedures will not only give you a more beautiful smile, but they will also restore full oral function, as well as your self confidence.
If you are not satisfied with your smile and want to transform it from dull to dazzling, ask us about cosmetic dentistry. We can’t wait to make you smile!
