Avoiding care due to the fear of going to the dentist ultimately results in dental problems. A recently study conducted by Deakin University researchers discovered a link between depression and poor dental health. Dr. Colin Holman and Dr. Natalie Frazier at Dental Expressions in Oklahoma City, OK are on a mission to provide a full range of services while reducing patient anxiety in a comfortable and friendly environment.
Researchers “… found almost two thirds of participants reporting depression (61 per cent) also reported having an aching mouth in the past year and more than half (57.4 per cent) considered their teeth to be in fair or poor condition.” In addition, it was noted that “… the more dental conditions one had the greater the severity of their depression.”
Whiter Teeth Impacts First Impressions
According to the “The Impact of Whiter Teeth on Key First Impressions” study, commissioned by Crest Whitestrips, improving the overall appearance of teeth influences how other people view you. “Dr. Dacher Keltner, smile psychologist and Professor of Psychology at University of California at Berkeley [reports], ‘Visible from 200 feet, it is the intense focus of what other people look at, and a sign of our warmth, confidence, and health.’ ”

Replacing missing teeth is of great importance for a variety of reasons, including improving your ability to eat and speak properly. At Dental Expressions in Oklahoma City, OK, Dr. Colin Holman and Dr. Natalie Frazier offer a wide range of restorative dentistry options to help reconstruct your dentition, including conventional dentures and implant-supported dentures.
Are Dentures Right for Me?
When most people think of dentures, the image of a full set of false teeth is typically the first thing that comes to mind. These are called complete dentures, and they effectively take the place of an entire arch of missing teeth. At Dental Expressions, we will ensure that your complete dentures look natural and feel comfortable so that you can once again fully enjoy eating, speaking, and smiling with a full set of teeth.
Partial dentures also replace missing teeth, though they differ from conventional dentures in that they replace only a few teeth rather than an entire arch. The custom-crafted prosthetic teeth are color-matched to your existing dentition for the most natural look possible. Partial dentures not only replace missing teeth for improved function and aesthetics; they also help prevent other teeth from shifting.
A consultation with the team at Dental Expressions will aid in determining which type of dentures are right for you. We’ll take the time to sit down with you and discuss all available options to ensure that we find the ideal solution for your unique situation. If you are interested in implant-retained dentures, we’ll explain the dental implant process and develop a treatment plan that best suits your individual needs.
Start Rebuilding Your Smile Today
Whether you currently wear dentures and you are interested in the possibilities afforded by implant-supported prosthetics or you are planning to undergo an extraction and you’d like to learn more about your restorative dental options, we are here to help. From our conveniently located office in Oklahoma City, OK, our doctors proudly serve patients from throughout the surrounding areas, including Midwest City, Moore, Norman, and beyond. Contact our office today; we can’t wait to show you what a difference our commitment to quality dentistry and your satisfaction can make for you!

If you’re not fully satisfied with your smile, there’s a good chance that you have more than one complaint. Therefore, you need a cosmetic dentistry solution that can address several problems at once. If you’re not satisfied with the color, shape, or spacing of your teeth, you should explore the porcelain veneers cosmetic option. Porcelain Veneers are incredibly versatile and can address many cosmetic dental issues. They’re made of thin ceramic shells that can cover and repair your cosmetic imperfections. Porcelain veneers are long lasting and naturally looking. To get the bright and confident smile you’ve always dreamed of, make an appointment today to see the experienced cosmetic dentists at OK Dental Expressions. Dr. Holman and Dr. Frazier proudly restore smiles throughout Oklahoma City, OK, Moore, Norman, Midwest City, and nearby communities.
What Cosmetic Dental Problems Can Porcelain Veneers Fix?
- Crooked teeth
- Discolored teeth
- Gapped teeth
- Chipped or worn teeth
How Are Porcelain Veneers Placed?
- Step 1: Your tooth enamel is trimmed back about the same thickness as the veneer.
- Step 2: The dentist will use a shade guide to determine which color of porcelain most closely matches your surrounding teeth.
- Step 3: Then the dentist will take an impression of your tooth and its surrounding teeth and gums to fabricate the veneer.
- Step 4: A temporary veneer will be placed until your permanent veneer is ready.
- Step 5: Your permanent veneer will be bonded creating your brand new smile.
What Are the Advantages of Porcelain Veneers?
- Natural Appearance –Porcelain is a ceramic material that has many similar properties to your tooth’s natural enamel.
- Stain-Resistance – Porcelain also has an extremely smooth and impervious surface. This makes porcelain veneers quite resistant to permanent stains.
- Long Lasting – Porcelain veneers typically last over 15 years.
- Color Versatility – The color of a porcelain veneer can be selected such that it makes dark teeth appear whiter.
- Ease of Shaping –Porcelain veneers do not require extensive shaping prior to the procedure.
- Improves Appearance & Restores Confidence –Porcelain veneers can dramatically change your smile and improve your self-confidence.
If you want a brand new smile for a brand new year, make an appointment to see Dr. Holman and Dr. Frazier at OK Dental Expressions for your porcelain veneers consultation today.

Healthy, luminously white teeth are the building blocks of an attractive and confident smile. If your teeth have grown yellow or stained over time, you may not feel so good about showing off your smile to those who matter most. At Dental Expressions in Oklahoma City, OK, Dr. Colin Holman and Dr. Natalie Frazier offer a variety of cosmetic dentistry services to bring your smile to beautiful life, including professional grade teeth whitening treatment.
Teeth Whitening in OKC and the Surrounding Areas
If you’ve ever tried whitening your teeth with the over-the-counter products you find at your local drugstore or pharmacy, chances are that you’ve noticed how ineffective they really can be. Strips tend to slide around on the surfaces of your teeth, or they fail to adhere closely enough to deliver the intended effect. Generic trays aren’t custom-fitted to your unique dentition, so the whitening gel you load them with can leak out while you wait. Fortunately, there is a better way of whitening your teeth and brightening your smile.
At Dental Expressions, our dentists trust the powerful yet gentle power of professional grade bleaching gel, utilizing customized trays that precisely fit the contours of your teeth and gums. The high quality formula can effectively lift years of deep, set-in stains from your enamel, revealing a brighter, more attractive smile better than any store-bought product can. Even staining and yellowing caused by tobacco, coffee, tea, wine, and certain antibiotic medications can be corrected with our teeth whitening treatments.
Schedule Your Consultation Today!
If you’ve been longing for a whiter, more radiant smile that lasts, contact our office in Oklahoma City, OK today and reserve your appointment with Dr. Holman and Dr. Frazier. Our family-friendly office happily welcomes patients from throughout the greater OKC area, including Midwest City, Moore, Norman, Del City, and beyond.

Dealing with missing teeth isn’t merely embarrassing in social situations, though the self-image factor is certainly substantial. Individuals who are missing even a single tooth are at a higher risk of developing periodontal disease and bone loss in the jaw. Dr. Colin Holman and Dr. Natalie Frazier at Dental Expressions in Oklahoma City, OK offer a variety of tooth replacement options, including dental implants, to repair and rejuvenate incomplete smiles.
Are Dental Implants Right for Me?
A consultation at Dental Expressions will help you and your dentist determine which tooth replacement procedure is best for you. If Dr. Holman and Dr. Frazier find that you are, in fact, a good candidate for dental implants, you’ll be walked through the steps of the process from beginning to end before the final decision is made. For many patients with one or more missing teeth, dental implants provide the ideal solution to diminished functionality and self-consciousness in one straightforward procedure.
First, a small post made of titanium is placed precisely into the bone of your jaw and the tissue of your gum. This anchor is then topped with a beautifully crafted porcelain crown that has been shaded exactly to match the rest of your teeth. When cared for properly, dental implants can last a lifetime, giving you the ability to enjoy your favorite foods again and smile freely.
Dental Implants for a Complete Smile
Don’t suffer through one more day with missing teeth – life is too short to spend hiding your smile! Contact our office in Oklahoma City, OK today to find out how Dr. Holman and Dr. Frazier can help you replace your lost teeth with dental implants. Our team also happily welcomes patients from throughout the surrounding communities of Midwest City, Norman, Moore and beyond. We can’t wait to give you back your smile!

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.
Regain Confidence with a New Smile
