When Changing Your Image, Evaluate Your Smile

You don’t have to go all “Hollywood”, however…

…having cosmetic dental work done could make you look younger, boost your self-esteem and self-confidence, and also improve your communication skills, your sex appeal, and positively influence your personal and professional connections.

According to studies by social psychologists, the majority of people spend about thirty seconds assessing you before they begin to form a list of thoughts regarding your:

 • educational level
 • career competence
 • success
 • personality
 • class
 • dependability
 • sense of humor
 • as well as your social beliefs.

 Good or bad, this means looks matter in today’s world.

Using esthetic dentistry, Berrien Dental will make your smile light up a room when you enter it. Through different procedures, we’ll create that beautiful smile of which you’ve been dreaming. Nature-mimicking restorations such as advanced metal-free crowns, veneers, bridges, and inlays/onlays  look, feel and function like your own teeth.

Within an independent study in 2008, it was found:

When questioned, “What exactly is the first thing you observe in a new acquaintenance’s smile?” The most typical responses were:

• A Straight Smile
• Brightness And Shade of Teeth
• Cleanliness of Teeth
• Is Their Smile Sincere?
• Missing Any Teeth?
• Sparkle of Smile

When participants were questioned, “What exactly would you most want to further improve about your own smile?” The most typical answer was: “Whiter & Brighter Teeth”.

Then when questioned, “What types of things do you feel make a smile unsightly?” The most typical replies were:

• Stained, Discolored, or Yellow Teeth
• Teeth Missing
• Crooked Teeth
• Decaying Teeth And Cavities
• Spaces and Gaps in Teeth
• Unbrushed Teeth

Practically all Americans (98.7%) consider a smile is an important social asset.

97% of adult men and women feel a wonderful smile makes a particular person more desirable to those of the opposite sex.

Three-quarters (76%) of adult men and women truly feel an ugly smile can easily damage someone’s chances for job success.

Using cosmetic dentistry, we will make your smile light up the room if you enter. By means of various procedures, we will create that stunning smile of which you’ve been dreaming. With tooth whitening, porcelain veneers, implants, crowns and bridges, we will transform an ok smile into a fantastic one.

We can change your life with a smile lift! Dr. Christy and Dr. Balsis offer a full compliment of aesthetic dentistry treatments to enhance your smile, including porcelain veneers, porcelain crowns, bridges and porcelain onlays, implants, natural-colored bonded filling replacements, gum sculpturing, and whitening.

What Are Your Smile Goals?

Smile improvement often results in life improvement. That’s why it’s so important that you are an equal partner in all of the decisions to assure that we are on the same track before we start any treatment.

We take a comprehensive strategy and believe in assembling a treatment plan with a thorough discussion of options. Cosmetic Dental Patient Pieta
