Statistics reveal that Americans place a high value on their smile. According to an American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry® national survey: Of those adults surveyed 99.7% believe a smile is an important social asset. 96% believe an attractive smile makes a person more appealing to members of the opposite sex. 74% feel an unattractive smile can hurt a person’s chances for career success. And when respondents were asked, “What would you most like to improve about your smile?” The most common response was: Whiter & Brighter Teeth. If you are not happy with your smile, teeth whitening may provide the solution.
Missing teeth can be replaced with predictable results using fixed bridges or dental implants. Crown or bridge work is best for correcting major functional or structural problems with individual teeth, missing teeth, or general bite dysfunction. New porcelain and ceramic technology is available to replace missing and/or severely broken teeth so that no one can tell that the replacements are not real. Implants are being used to successfully replace teeth for people in all age groups-with esthetic and predictable results.
