When is it Time to Make the Appointment?
It can sometimes be difficult to decide when it’s time to finally make that phone call and set an appointment. After all, you’ve probably been unhappy with your smile for some time. What’s different now? You could spend your entire life saying that. The truth is that at some point, you just have to look at the facts and make the call.
If you are embarrassed to smile openly in front of strangers or new friends, then it’s time to get cosmetic dental work done! Your smile should be one of your best assets not something you need to hide when you meet new people!
How is your confidence level? Being embarrassed shows that you are worried about what others will think, but your confidence is based on what you think of yourself! If you aren’t happy with the way you look when you smile, you’ll never want to smile! That’s a truly sad way to live your life.

What Can I Expect?
When you come into the office for the first time, we are going to be asking you some questions. After all, we need to get a better idea of what you are looking for in your smile improvements. We have included a few of those questions below so that you can go ahead and start thinking about them, should you decide to make an appointment soon!
What Do You Like?
We always begin a consultation by asking what you like about your smile. We want to know the parts of your smile that make you the most happy. This information helps us gauge what is important to you, what should be left alone in your smile, or what we can highlight for you!
What Do You Want to Improve?
Once we know what you love, we will try to find out what areas you want to improve. This can be difficult for patients to pinpoint. Most patients know that they don’t like their smile, but they really have no idea why! Below are a few things for you to think about.
Shape: The shape of your teeth can greatly affect your smile. If your teeth are too short, too skinny, or covered by excess gums, it will affect the shape of your teeth. An injury can also affect the shape by creating a chip or uneven tooth!
Color: The number one complaint we hear is regarding the color of the patient’s smile. Darkened or yellow teeth are not attractive, and many, many patients want to improve that!
Alignment: A smile that is crowded, has gaps, or teeth that overlap will make you feel uncomfortable when you smile! This is called alignment, and we have some great solutions!
Some Possible Solutions
Now that you have a better idea of some of the common problems we see in smiles, we want to take just a moment to address possible solutions. You will see that each of these solutions lines up with one of the common problems we mentioned above.
Bonding/Veneers: Dental bonding and porcelain veneers are two different procedures, but they can accomplish the same task of changing the shape of your teeth. We can use these products to create uniformity and symmetry in your smile.
Whitening: We offer a few different whitening options for your smile. Whether you choose to do at-home whitening or in-office Zoom! whitening, the results will be much better than anything you could expect from a drugstore kit!
Invisalign Orthodontics: Finally, if you are having an issue with the alignment of your teeth, particularly your smile, you might consider short-term adult orthodontics. We offer Invisalign here at the office, which will allow you to adjust your teeth without anyone around you suspecting a thing!
