Social Anxiety? Just Smile

Who hasn’t had those awkward moments at a party, standing in the corner or small-talking with someone you don’t really know? But these feelings can be much worse when you’re embarrassed by the color of their teeth. And because studies show that the act of smiling can actually make you feel happier, keeping your mouth shut can make the problem worse.

If you’re hoping to feel more confident and happy, there’s an easy solution: professional teeth whitening. Done in-office, professional teeth whitening is one of the most common cosmetic dental procedures, and can have you leaving the office with a smile up to 8 shades whiter. Using a chemical agent to break down staining molecules trapped on the surface of your enamel, a whitening procedure can easily remove years of stains in just one visit. If you’re hoping to prolong those results, you can combine this with take-home trays, as well.

Missing Teeth? You’re Not Alone

Losing teeth is a pretty common fear. So is actually losing them. It’s estimated that nearly 178 million Americans have lost at least one tooth, and 40 million are missing all their teeth. If you’ve recently lost teeth, there’s still no reason not to smile. You’re not alone. Also, you don’t have to be missing that tooth forever.

Dental implants are one of the most effective tooth replacement methods out there, and it keeps getting better. With an estimated 96 percent success rate, there’s little reason not to consider them. Especially when they can last a lifetime if properly cared for. Dental implants are comprised of two main elements: the titanium implant, and the ceramic crown. First the implant is surgically inserted into the jaw bone and given time to heal. Next, a custom-made crown is attached to the implant, which has been designed to match the shade of your surrounding teeth. Essentially, after an implant procedure has been completed, your new dental implant will function like a regular tooth.
