Worries about Smiles
Studies from Kelton Research maintain that American adults feel nice smiles make positive impressions. In fact, we all tend to like people with bright, straight smiles. So, smile aesthetics impact relationships, first impressions and career advancement, as well as self-esteem. What concerns you about the appearance of your teeth and gums?
With a smile makeover, you can take control of your smile. As one of America’s Top Dentists (Consumer Research Council of America), Dr. Holland and his professional team can show you several methods to improve aesthetics. They reshape teeth and gums for age-appropriate and naturally-complementary:
- Tooth color and configuration
- Smile line, or how the bottom of top teeth fit with the lower lip
- Overall appearance
- Elimination of defects such as chips, hairline cracks, gaps and pitting
San Antonio Smile Makeovers Start with a Consultation
The dentist ensures the patient’s oral health is good before addressing any aesthetic problems If problems exist, he restores them with treatments such as tooth-colored fillings, porcelain crowns, inlays and onlays, root canal therapy, periodontal treatments, dental implants, and implant-supported prosthetics as necessary. The cosmetic portion of a smile makeover involves incorporating the dentist’s findings and the patient’s goals. The dentist uses one or more treatments to improve appearance and may preview the finished smile with computer imaging or a wax-model.
Treatments are state of the art, comfortable and successful. Below are just some of the innovations at New Image Dentistry.
Porcelain veneers Porcelain veneers cover the front side of healthy teeth that have cosmetic defects such as stubborn stains, chips, cracks, gaps and mild crowding. These thin shells of ceramic confer a naturally beautiful appearance The dentist needs two to three visits to complete porcelain veneers, but once placed, they last for years as patients brush, floss and get their semi-annual care at New Image Dentistry.
Professional teeth whitening Zoom2 teeth whitening uses concentrated hydrogen peroxide gel to eliminate stains caused by food, beverages, smoking, age and other factors. Safe for gums and tooth enamel, Zoom2 whitening improves tooth color by as many as six to ten shades. The team offers an at-home version, too. Check out the free whitening offer!
Invisalign clear aligners Repair oral health and appearance with Invisalign clear braces. Biocompatible, custom-made aligners straighten mild to moderate orthodontic problems faster than traditional braces. Because aligners are removable, oral hygiene and meals are easy. Treatment with Invisalign takes as little as 9 to 18 months–about half the time of metal braces. Dr. Holland is a preferred Invisalign provider.
Tooth-colored fillings Using a durable combination of acrylic and glass, the dentist fills small chips, cracks and gaps, and restores cavities for a seamless new look. Gone are the days of ugly metal fillings!
