Time To Improve Your Image? Take A Close Look At Your Smile

Using cosmetic dental work, we are able to make your smile illuminate a room whenever you enter. Through different procedures, we are going to create that attractive smile of which you have been dreaming.

Natural-looking alternatives including advanced metal-free crowns, porcelain veneers, bridges, and inlays/onlays look, feel and function just like your very own teeth. Plus, are you aware that, cosmetic dentistry might clear away wrinkles and lines around your cheeks, mouth area and chin… with no plastic surgery?

Dr. Smith and Dr. Baer’s experience and expertise in cosmetic and health-restorative dental care is well recognized in the Tacoma, WA area.

After we are in tune with your vision of your new smile, we take into account the overall shape of your face, the features of your nose, and the character 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. Dr. Smith and Dr. Baer will also measure many more constructs like the balance of your eyes and nose in ratio to your other facial dimensions.

We can redesign your smile to make you appear dramatically younger, make your smile brighter and bigger, do away with the lip lines that give you that “elderly” smile, instantly straighten crowded or crooked teeth, and, finally, give your sex appeal a major boost.

Don’t forget, though, Dr. Smith and Dr. Baer and the smile team aren’t just focusing on your appearance. Our first priority is to make your smile healthy, well built, and in balanced occlusion so that you can enjoy good health, good food and a good laugh now and then.

Surprising Research Results:

When respondents in a 2008 independent survey were questioned, “Precisely what would you most want to further improve with your smile?” The most common answer was: “Whiter & Brighter Teeth”.

Then they questioned, “What kinds of things do you feel make a smile unattractive?” The most common answers were:

• Stained, Discolored, or Yellow Teeth

• Teeth Missing

• Teeth That are Not Straight

• Decaying Teeth & Cavities

• Gaps & Spaces in Teeth

• Unbrushed Teeth

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

97% of adults believe that an attractive smile makes a person more appealing to individuals of the opposite sex.

Three-quarters (76%) of adults truly feel an ugly smile can damage an individual’s odds for job success.

It’s not absolutely necessary to get a “Million Dollar” smile, but…

…having cosmetic dental work done can make you look younger, improve your self-confidence and self-esteem, and also increase your conversation skills, your sex appeal, and positively influence your own personal and professional relationships.

According to more research by social psychologists, many people take around four seconds appraising the way you look before they begin to form a list of opinions regarding your:

• academic level

• career competence

• achievement

• persona

• sophistication

• dependability

• sense of humor

• as well as your social beliefs.

Whether it’s fair or not, this means looks count these days.

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

Think about already having a more attractive smile. You’ve taken ten years off of your appearance. You feel confident and you’re more attractive. With so many advancements in cosmetic dentistry and, with affordable financing options being more available, you no longer have to live with a less than stellar smile.

What Do You Want From Your Smile?
