In our modern competitive society, a pleasing appearance often means the difference between success and failure in both our personal and professional lives. And because the mouth is one of the focal points of the face, it should come as no surprise that the smile plays a major role in how we perceive ourselves, as well as in the impressions we make on the people around us.
If you feel good about your smile, you are much more likely to flash it on others in a pleasing and disarming manner. A charming smile can open doors and knock down the barriers that stand between you and a fuller, richer life.
If you are not completely happy with your smile, perhaps its time to get a new one!

ADDING SPARKLE TO YOUR SMILE:
Scaling and Polishing
Removal of tartar (calculus) from your teeth surface and polishing with a micro abrasive paste. Eliminates many food stains and leaves your teeth cleaner and smoother.
A relatively conservative procedure which utilizes a strong oxidizing agent to lighten the teeth. Often, highly effective way to brighten the smile.
Reshaping and polishing malpositioned teeth which gives an illusion of uniformity and alignment. Relatively inexpensive way to a more even and youthful smile.
Repositioning the malaligned teeth may or may not require extraction. Although, it requires regular checkups, it has the advantage of leaving the natural teeth intact and being closest to a permanent solution.
Straightening teeth, closing gaps & improving smiles with steel wires & brackets.
Tooth colored wires can be used which are much less noticeable than the metal.
This procedure involves use of composite, a plastic material which can be directly bonded to the front teeth in order to lighten them as well as close spaces between teeth.
Laminating with either laboratory made composite resin or porcelain provides proportional accuracy to close gaps. Can also be used to Conceal more resistant stains that do not go away with bleaching and direct laminates.
Full Porcelain Crowns can be used as a substitute to orthodontic treatment for closing gaps between front teeth, aligning protruded teeth and capping big fractures that are not corrected with direct veneers and bonding.
