It doesn’t take long to form a first impression of someone. Surveys have shown that it can happen in less than a minute. So what can you do to make the most of that initial meeting? Further research tells us that most people are immediately influenced by physical appearance. Dressing for the occasion and presenting a friendly demeanor count for a lot but the quality that a large majority of people look for and admire is an air of confidence. A good way to express your self confidence is with a smile, so make sure it’s the best it can be.

There’s no need to live with crooked or overcrowded teeth or the discoloration that your teeth may have taken on over time. Today’s dental technology can correct just about any cosmetic flaw there is. You can make those dingy looking teeth shine again with the help one of several whitening methods.

Your dentist can give you a home whitening kit complete with pre measured trays so that you will use just the right amount of solution for your particular needs. If you should need an extra strength bleaching solution your dentist can do an in-office whitening. Either treatment will significantly improve the color of your teeth.

If a tooth has been cracked or chipped but is otherwise healthy, a veneer can be used to completely cover the surface of the tooth with a thin coating of material that will conform to the natural shade of your enamel. A veneer can last for years with regular dental care and attention.

The bonding material that dentists now use to fill a cavity or a gap between your teeth is much improved from the traditional. The most significant improvement from a cosmetic standpoint is that it is made to match the original color of your teeth. The bonding process can be done in one regular visit to your dentist.
