Time To Improve Your Image? Begin With Your Smile

Using cosmetic dentistry, will make your smile light up a room when you enter it.

Using the latest advancements, we will create your perfect smile. Natural-looking alternatives such as porcelain veneers and crowns, metal-free bridges and natural colored fillings  feel and function like your natural teeth and look incredible.

A whiter and brighter smile that shows straight teeth along with a healthy, gleaming pink gum line might take a decade off of your true age.

Our team’s experience and expertise in cosmetic and health-restorative dental care is highly respected in the Kansas City area.

Once we are copacetic with your concept of your perfect smile, we review the overall shape of your face, the features of your nose, and the hues and chroma of your eyes. However, it is the shape and contour of your lips that will frame your new smile and, as such, are the face’s primary guideposts. You can also expect us to measure a number of other constructs like the symmetry of your eyes and nose in relation to your other facial dimensions.

We can restore your smile to make you look dramatically younger, make your smile whiter and more sparkly, do away with the lip lines that give you that “elderly” smile, perform “Instant Orthodontics” to straighten crooked teeth, and, finally, take your sex appeal to the next level.

Keep in mind, however, our smile team isn’t just thinking about making your smile beautiful. We believe that 90% of a beautiful smile happens when we make your smile healthy, engineered correctly, and in balanced occlusion so that you can enjoy laughing, talking, chewing and kissing… and look great doing it.

Research Reveals…

In an independent analysis in 2008, it was discovered: When respondents were asked, “Precisely what would you most want to improve with your own smile?” The most frequent answer was: “Brighter & Whiter Teeth”.

Then when asked, “What kinds of things do you think make a smile ugly?” The most frequent answers were:

• Discolored, Yellow, or Stained Teeth
• Teeth Missing
• Teeth That are Not Straight
• Rotting Teeth & Cavities
• Gaps & Spaces in Teeth
• Unbrushed Teeth

97% of adult men and women think an attractive smile makes a particular person more appealing to people of the opposite sex. Three-quarters (76%) of adult men and women truly feel an unattractive smile can hurt an individual’s probability for career success.

Virtually all Americans (99.7%) think a smile is a crucial social asset.

Fair or unfair, appearances count these days.

As outlined in further studies by social psychologists in and around Kansas City, many people spend around 3 seconds assessing your appearance before they start to form a laundry list of opinions regarding your:

• educational level
• career competence
• success
• character
• social rank
• dependability
• sense of humor
• social mores

Now, the researchers didn’t say you have to go all “Hollywood”, however…

…having a smile lift could make you appear younger, boost your self-confidence and self-esteem, as well as increase your conversation skills, your attractiveness, and positively impact your own personal and professional interactions.

Obviously, your smile is one of your most important possessions.

In the business environment or on the social scene, it leads the way for the rest of your personality. However, it’s more than just making a good first impression. Changing just a darkened tooth has been known to make a person feel more positive about themselves. Smile enhancement can turn you into a positive personality with whom people enjoy spending time.
