If you find yourself generally unhappy with your smile, you’re not alone. In fact, the majority of Americans report some level of discontent with the condition of their teeth, whether it be yellowing of the enamel, a chip here or there, or general misalignment. At Dental Expressions in Oklahoma City, OK, Dr. Holman and Dr. Frazier specialize in giving people just like you the beautiful, flawless smile of their dreams, often using customized porcelain veneers to achieve this goal.
Why Should I Choose Porcelain Veneers?
Dental veneers are super-thin, custom-fitted sheaths of porcelain that are affixed to the front surfaces of your teeth. They are durable, long-lasting, stain-resistant and cared for in the same way you would your natural teeth. Their color is natural, made to match your existing teeth for a seamless, polished look. Porcelain veneers are used to mask a number of common smile imperfections, including:
- Chips or cracks in enamel
- Yellowing and discolorations that are resistant to professional whitening treatments
- Gaps between teeth
- Teeth that are misshapen or misaligned
- Teeth that are too big or too smile relative to surrounding teeth
When your veneers are placed, typically within as little as two visits to Dental Expressions, you’re left with a more balanced, symmetrical, aesthetically pleasant smile you’ll be proud to show off to everyone.

Many of us dream of having a smile that looks like it came straight out of the movies, and why wouldn’t we? Beautiful teeth are often valuable tools in the professional and social settings, implying success, youth, confidence, and so much more to others. For some people, it’s easy to pick out that one treatment you need to achieve the results you’re looking for, such as teeth whitening to clean up stains. But what if you’re less sure? Maybe your teeth need a little more work than one procedure can offer, or maybe you simply don’t have the time or funds to spend on several, lengthy appointments. Whatever the case is, our dedicated team at Dental Expressions is here to help! At our Oklahoma City office, you can find the caring touch you’ve been looking for when you undergo services from Dr. Holman and Dr. Frazier. We’ll be happy to create a personalized smile makeover plan that will give you the stunning results you’ve been looking for.
Transform Your Smile, Transform Your Life
Changing the look of your smile is a big step, and one that our team takes very seriously. First, Dr. Holman or Dr. Frazier will carefully inspect your teeth and gums, being sure to take into account any cosmetic flaws (after first ensuring that no restorative work is required). They’ll then discuss with you any goals or preferences you have for your dental work (including cost and time commitments) before making their recommendations over what procedures would best benefit your unique situation. Our available cosmetic treatments include:
Don’t settle for a smile that’s simply lackluster – we’ll be happy to help you pursue your dreams of a new and improved you! Contact our Oklahoma City office today to schedule an appointment. We welcome patients from all over the OKC area, as well as Moore, Norman, Midwest City, and beyond.

Out of all the cosmetic dentistry services available today, teeth whitening is still one of the most popular – and for good reason! A beautiful, white smile can imply all sorts of positive attributes about you, including success, vitality, confidence, and more; it’s certainly a great tool to have if you want to make a good impression in the workplace. Sadly, certain drinks, some medications, and even genetics can leave you with teeth that look dingy or discolored. Our dedicated team at Dental Expressions wants you to have the smile you’ve always dreamed of; that’s why Dr. Colin Holman and Dr. Natalie Frazier offer take-home teeth whitening kits that can provide both dramatic and convenient results.
While over-the-counter whitening treatments may seem effective at first, they can’t beat the staying power of the professional-grade bleach you can receive at our Oklahoma City office. Our team will first create a custom-made tray to fit the unique shape of your smile; these trays are designed to hold the bleach as close to your teeth as possible while still keeping out saliva. Then, all you have to do is wear them over a few weeks for the prescribed amount of time in the comfort of your own home! Stains of all kinds have been shown to fade and even vanish with the help of take-home teeth whitening care.
Additionally, we can provide cosmetic bonding or porcelain veneers in the small chance that your stains aren’t erased to your satisfaction by our teeth whitening treatment. Our Oklahoma City dental team won’t stop until we’ve found the cosmetic dentistry solution that gives you the smile you want.

Out of all the dental injuries a person can face in a lifetime, tooth loss tends to be the most devastating, both for a person’s self-confidence and their overall oral health. When there are unsightly gaps in your smile, it can be hard to even convince yourself to get out of bed, much less talk and laugh with your peers. Worse, if ignored, your other teeth can begin to twist and move in order to fill the space, as well as lead to jawbone deterioration. Thankfully, our team at Dental Expressions is here to help with a variety of tooth replacement options. Choices are key at our Oklahoma City practice – while one restorative option might be a perfect fit for some people, it could be frustrating or unfulfilling for others. That’s why Dr. Colin Holman and Dr. Natalie Frazier are committed to working closely with their patients in order to find the tooth replacement service that will restore beauty, form, and complete functionality to their unique smile.
At Dental Expressions, we offer the following tooth replacement options:
Dental implants are the only restorative option that replicates the entire structure of the tooth, from the root to the crown. First, a specialist will first place a small titanium rod in your jawbone. Once an appropriate amount of time has passed for the area to heal, you’ll return to our office where we’ll top it off with a beautiful, natural-looking crown. After a while, you won’t even remember that they’re not your natural teeth!
Dentures and Partials
If you’ve lost all the teeth along your upper arch, your lower arch, or both, a full denture can be custom made for your unique mouth, fitting into place with natural suction and dental adhesive. If desired, dental implants and dentures can actually be used together, ensuring a much more sturdy fit. For patients who are only missing a few teeth, partial dentures can be used instead. Both of these tooth replacement solutions are removable.
For patients who are looking for a more stable solution than dentures without wanting to undergo the dental implants process, bridges are a non-removable solution that can replace a few teeth in a row.
Contact our Oklahoma City office today to schedule a consultation with one of our accomplished doctors today! Our team will work hard to ensure that you get the care you desire and the smile you’ve been dreaming of. We’re also happy to see patients from the OKC area, Moore, Norman, Midwest City, and beyond!

Every smile is different. And yet, as different as every smile is, patients have very similar reasons for wanting a popular cosmetic dentistry service like porcelain veneers. Today on our blog, we’d like to identify each and talk a little about them.
A Straighter Smile without Braces
The first reason patients often turn to porcelain veneers for cosmetic help is that they have crooked or oddly spaced teeth they want to straighten, but they don’t want braces. Porcelain veneers can help you with that by hiding imperfections, creating a smile that looks straight, beautiful, and natural. But because porcelain veneers don’t actually straighten teeth, we recommend seeing Dr. Colin Holman or Dr. Natalie Frazier at Dental Expressions before you decide. During your first visit with us, we can complete a thorough oral exam that will help us advise you as to the solution that will benefit you the most.
Whiter, More Radiant Teeth
The second reason patients from Oklahoma City and beyond have for turning to porcelain veneers is they want a whiter smile. Often, professional teeth whitening is enough to cut through difficult stains caused by foods, beverages, and tobacco, but some types of stains—like those caused by prescription medications—can be difficult for any whitening system, even the best, to get rid of. Porcelain veneers make it possible to beat any kind of stain, producing a radiantly beautiful smile that you won’t have to touch up at a later date.
Do you have another reason for considering porcelain veneers? We’d love to hear about it. Call Dental Expressions today to schedule your consultation appointment with us. Dr. Colin Holman and Dr. Natalie Frazier gladly serve patients from OKC, Moore, Norman, Midwest City, and surrounding communities.

In our last post, we talked about teeth whitening, one of the most popular cosmetic dentistry services featured at our Oklahoma City dental office. Today, we’d like to introduce you to another great cosmetic dentistry service. With it, we can do more than just help you combat embarrassing tooth stains. We can also hide cracks, chips, spacing issues, and even slight misalignment. We’re talking, of course, about porcelain veneers.
What Are Porcelain Veneers?
If you’ve never heard of them before, porcelain veneers are an extremely effective cosmetic dentistry service. Made from thin discs of durable porcelain, your veneers will be affixed to the front of your front teeth, hiding the flaws that have been keeping you from smiling.
The entire porcelain veneers process takes two to three visits to complete. During the first, your Oklahoma City cosmetic dentist will talk to you about what kinds of results you’d like to see. Then, after an oral exam, we can begin putting your personalized plan together. When designing porcelain veneers we consider your overall appearance, not just your smile. That means we take into account your skin tone, your facial features, and more, all to create exactly the kind of beautiful, natural-looking smile you’ve always dreamed of.
After your veneers have been handcrafted by a talented ceramist you’ll return to our Oklahoma City dental office to have your permanent veneers put in place. With your brand new, completed smile you can get back to your normal schedule feeling more confident about your teeth than you have for a long time.
Are You Ready to Transform Your Smile?
If you’re ready to start transforming your smile with porcelain veneers, Dr. Holman and Dr. Frazier are ready to help. Call Dental Expressions in Oklahoma City today to schedule your consultation visit. We serve patients from OKC, Moore, Norman, Midwest City, and beyond.

If you’ve ever taken a close look at the oral care aisle at your local grocery story or drug store, you’ve probably noticed that there are a lot of teeth whitening products out there. Whitening kits, whitening toothpastes, whitening mouthwashes—all claim that they can give your smile the boost it’s been missing. But can they really?
Because every patient is different, there’s no black-and-white answer to that question. For some, they may be incredibly effective. For others, though, they may not be powerful enough to do any good.
That’s why, at Dental Expressions, we offer professional teeth whitening as one of our cosmetic dentistry services. With professional teeth whitening, Dr. Colin Holman and Dr. Natalie Frazier can help you remove difficult stains caused by foods, drinks, aging, tobacco use, and, in some cases, even stains caused by a medication like tetracycline.
Your chance at a brighter smile and improved confidence begins with a consultation visit at our Oklahoma City dental office. We’ll inspect your smile and take an impression of your teeth. These will help our lab as they build your custom whitening trays. To whiten your smile, you’ll just need to line your trays with a specially-formulated whitening gel and wear them as directed.
Are you ready to take your smile to the next level with professional teeth whitening? Call us today. We serve patients from OKC, Moore, Norman, Midwest City and surrounding areas.
