Have you looked in the mirror at your smile lately? Does it seem as if your teeth are shorter than they used to be? When your lips are relaxed do you have any sign that you have teeth in your mouth? Do you like your smile? Is there anything you would like to change about your smile? Do you cover your mouth when you start to smile so that no one notices your teeth?
These are some of the comments that patients bring up to me or questions I ask them when we are evaluating their smile. If they are pleased with the color, contour and appearance of their smile we move on to other issues. If new patients have contacted us because they just don’t seem to have that young appearance and presentation they once did we perform our smile evaluation. This includes a set of digital photos (included in the fee of an examination). These photos are very detailed and taken with our professional camera set up with special lenses to capture details on the biting surfaces and a portrait shot using our strobe and photo back drop.
These photos are shown instantly to our patient on the computer monitor and with absolutely no obligation we look at the pictures together. I discuss the potential options with them and if there is interest we can get the portrait computer enhanced to show the smile after cosmetic dentistry is performed. This modified computer generated smile design can then be used by our laboratory and us to predictably enhance the smile using bleaching, tooth colored fillings, dental porcelain veneers, porcelain crowns, dental implants or dental bridges. There is no greater priviledge or fulfillment then when we can change one’s attitude and attitude about themselves. We are constantly hearing about the changed lives that are an outcome that comes with smile enhancements using cosmetic dentistry. If your current dentist hasn’t brought up the topic ask him or her if they can meet that need in your life. If they don’t feel confident or comfortable with these procedures then feel free to contact us for a free consultation. Our phone number is (586)247-3500.
