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.’ ”
- professional-grade teeth whitening (in-office whitening and custom-fitted trays for home use),

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.

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. OK Dental Expressions proudly serves patients throughout Oklahoma City, OK, Moore, Norman, Midwest City, and surrounding areas.

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.

We can’t wait to show you how easy it can be to transform your smile with the help of porcelain veneers!

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.

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.
