How to Straighten Your Smile Without Wearing Braces

girl smilingCrooked teeth are one of the complaints I receive most often. Slightly rotated or widely spaced teeth can make a smile appear juvenile or unprofessional, and your self-confidence can suffer because of it. Many times, patients with crooked teeth have worn braces in the past, but their teeth have shifted, and now they’re dissatisfied with the results. I understand their hesitation to wear braces again – braces of any kind require a significant time commitment, not to mention the embarrassment of looking like a teenager. As a cosmetic dentist in the Dallas/Plano area, I offer many solutions to straighten your teeth without the hassle of metal braces. Most of these treatments can be performed in just one or two visits, and the results are extremely esthetic and long-lasting.

Dallas Smile Makeover Dentist

smiling-womanYou’ve probably heard the term “smile makeover” and wondered what, exactly, it means. Because studies show that people with an attractive smile appear more intelligent, successful, friendly, and youthful, it just goes to reason that by altering your less-than-appealing smile, your image will be dramatically enhanced. Take a look at my Smile Gallery, and you can see for yourself that smile transformation makes a significant difference in a person’s appearance.

When you think about a makeover, visions of surgical facelifts, rhinoplasty, and liposuction may come to mind. A smile makeover, however, is a series of conservative procedures based on a custom treatment plan to whiten, straighten, reshape, and/or replace teeth - and the result is an unforgettable smile. Other benefits include improved self-confidence in business, romance, and social situations. Some of my patients look ten years younger after a few cosmetic procedures, and you could, too!
