Cosmetic Dentist Creating Flawless Natick Smiles
Have you assessed your smile lately? Are you satisfied with the look of your teeth? Or do you worry about cracks, chips, stains, gaps, and misalignments that are marring the appearance of your smile? Maybe your teeth are darkened by decay or worn down because of bruxism. Or maybe you have broken teeth from a traumatic injury or even deep cavities. The good news is that the cosmetic dentistry options offered at Papageorgiou Dental Associates can take your smile from grim to gorgeous!
So, why is cosmetic dentistry a valuable option? Smiling is your calling card both socially and professionally. Being self-conscious about your teeth can affect your confidence as well as impact how others view you. Hiding your smile can also affect your overall health. It’s true! Smiling is actually good for you—physically, mentally, and emotionally.
- In a recent poll, 69% of participants said that women look younger and more attractive when they wear a smile rather than makeup.
- Research has shown that smiling releases feel-good hormones called endorphins, and also increases the level of serotonin—a natural stress-reducer.
- It’s also been determined that when you smile, your body produces more antibodies and white blood cells, which boosts your immune system.
- One study determined that people who have healthy, whole, white smiles are thought to be more intelligent and successful.
- The University of Illinois conducted a study that suggested people who expressed cheerfulness and smiled more often added another ten years to their life expectancy.
Cosmetic Dental Services
Natick dentists Dr. Papageorgiou and Dr. Singh offer a number of cosmetic dentistry services to enhance your smile. Whether you need only one to do the job or a detailed plan including several cosmetic treatments, you can be certain the smile you see will be attractive and natural looking. Let’s take a look at some of our popular cosmetic dental procedures.
Teeth Whitening. As we age, our teeth absorb stains from foods and beverages such as coffee, tea, chocolate, tomato sauce and more. In addition, smoking and chewing tobacco, teeth grinding, and certain medications can all be a factor in the color of our teeth.
Papageorgiou Dental Associates offers two teeth whitening systems if your smile is looking dull and yellowed. With the Kör Whitening Deep Bleaching System, you can have a smile that is dramatically whiter in only a few office visits. Kör keeps the bleaching ingredients separated so they remain as potent as the day they were manufactured.
If you prefer to whiten your teeth on your own schedule at home, then we have either NiteWhite or DayWhite teeth whitening systems. In two weeks, you’ll have a smile that is several shades whiter and brighter.
Porcelain Veneers. Sometimes, teeth succumb to damage that requires more than a color correction. Perhaps you have teeth that are chipped, broken or otherwise misshaped. In combination, these teeth distract from the appearance of your smile. Porcelain veneers are very thin sheaths of fine dental porcelain that are bonded to teeth in order to conceal those unsightly distractions. Over the course of two appointments, your dentist will prepare your teeth by removing a small amount of enamel; place temporary veneers while your custom set is handcrafted in the dental lab; and finally cement each individually designed veneer into place. The result is a smile that is beautiful, strong and long lasting.
Invisalign®. Of course you can survive with crooked teeth, but wouldn’t life be so much better if you had a straight smile? Research shows that a straight smile lends confidence. Moreover, straight teeth are easier to keep clean, so your mouth will be healthier, too. Invisalign is a tested orthodontic system that uses clear mouth trays rather than metal brackets and wires to straighten misaligned teeth. The trays are hardly noticeable, and because they are removable you’re able to eat any kind of food and maintain your regular brushing and flossing routine. With Invisalign, treatment is usually completed is less than two years—a relatively short length of time for a smile that will give you a lifetime of pleasure.
