I Would Like To Improve My Smile But I Am Afraid To See The Dentist. What Can Be Done To Make Me Feel More Comfortable About Seeing The Dentist?
Our office is especially cognizant of the fearful patient. Making your experience with us a truly calm and comfortable one is our priority. We understand that each patient’s experiences, both past and present are truly unique. A patient manner and gentle touch can be expected by all members of our team. In addition, we offer music CDs, DVD movies, noise cancellation headphones, nitrous oxide gas, anti-anxiety medication and sedation dentistry to help our patients get the care they want and need.
Are You More Expensive Than Other Dentists?
Our fees are comparable to similar cosmetic dentists that rank as one of the best. However, our fees are not necessarily higher and in many instances it may be lower. We feel price shopping for cosmetic dentistry can be disastrous. No two cosmetic dental offices are alike. The level of expertise, knowledge and technology can set one apart from the rest. Before making a decision on cosmetic dentistry we urge you to come and experience what makes us unique.
Is There A Idea Of What Smile Looks Like?
As many people that exist, there are that many beautiful smiles- we are all unique and the beauty of our smile should and does reflect this. This is what makes cosmetic dentistry truly an art and enjoyable creative challenge! Each person is different and their case must be planned carefully. The design of a beautiful and natural smile must consider the sex of the individual as well as be in proportion with the gum line, the lips and the construction of the face of the individual.
How Can I Get An Idea Of How I Would Look With An Improved Smile?
By listening to what you want and taking notes we are able to mentally form a picture of what your smile can look like. To show you what we are seeing in our mind, we take a digital photograph of your face. We then use graphic artist software to generate a computerized image showing you with various smile enhancements, such as whitening, shape and length changes. Another way we can give you an idea of what you would look like with an improved smile is to fabricate a “wax-up” of your new smile. This is when we do the laminates on a duplicate model of your smile in order to see three dimensionally the changes in your smile. You can actually hold your before and after smiles in your hands to compare.

How Can I Correct Severely Discolored Teeth From Tetracycline?
Tetracycline is an antibiotic used to treat a number of illnesses in adults and children. It causes severe staining in teeth if used in growing children and sometimes with prolonged use in the young adult. The teeth have a gray or dark brown appearance to them and often times dark bands run across the front of the teeth. Typically these teeth do not respond well to whitening procedures. Porcelain veneers are a truly beautiful answer to this problem. A once dark and unattractive smile can be a brilliant and beautiful white one.
