When you can show a happy, attractive smile, you just naturally feel good. Plus, studies show that personal and professional relationships blossom because people smile. Your dentists at Dental Expressions in Oklahoma City, Drs. Colin and Jon Holman, offer many cosmetic dental services to reshape your teeth and your self-image. They build these treatments on healthy teeth and gums to ensure smiles feel and function as well as they look.
A Better Smile Makes a Better You
The American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, a professional organization composed of dentists who are well-qualified in smile aesthetics, says that simply smiling boosts your immune system and can add seven years to your life. Could this be true?
Well, just think about it. If you are ashamed to smile because of defects such as stains, gaps and cracks, do you feel confident? Do you want to interact with people? The answer most likely is no. And, common sense says that many smiles that are unattractive also have underlying oral health problems such as decay or poor bite. The converse makes common sense, too. If your teeth and gums are free of obvious defects, you don’t fuss and worry about showing them in public when you speak or laugh.
So, the professional staff at Dental Expressions makes a point of including aesthetic goals in every patient care plan. Not only do the cosmetic dentists in Oklahoma City remove decay, treat gum disease, and perform other preventive and restorative services, they offer simple to complex smile makeovers based on individual need and preference. You can both look good and feel great when you smile.
Here are some of the aesthetic treatments delivered at Dental Expressions. Dr. Jon or Colin Holman carefully evaluates each patient to determine if their mouths are healthy enough for these services. That means decay and gum disease should be repaired first before undertaking cosmetic improvements. The treatments include:
- Professional teeth whitening The dentists offer both fast in-office whitening and more gradual at-home treatments for stained teeth. Hydrogen peroxide gel lifts out discolorations from tobacco usage and darkly pigmented dietary choices such as coffee and blueberries. Ask about free whitening for life!
- Tooth-colored fillings Made from tooth-colored composite resin, white fillings replace dark amalgam. They blend in seamlessly with natural tooth structure and are strong and long lasting. Besides restoring decayed teeth, they look great when you smile.
- Composite resin bonding uses the same innovative material to fill defects such as cracks, chips and spaces between teeth. Hardened with a special curing light, the bonding material lasts for years and takes just a short visit with one of our dentists.
- Porcelain veneers are tooth-colored shells of dental ceramic. They disguise dental irregularities such as odd shape, stubborn stains, mild overcrowding and more. Permanently bonded in place, veneers beautify and strengthen teeth. Plus, they are as easy to maintain as natural teeth.
