A survey by the American Dental Association (ADA) found that a person’s smile outranked their eyes, hair and the body as the most important physical feature.
Having a beautiful smile may just help you on that job interview or give you enough confidence to stress less about it. In a recent survey by the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentists (AACD), 74 percent of the people responding said they believed an unattractive smile could hurt a person’s chances for career success.
A great smile is one of the first things people notice. People with great smiles have higher self confidence and better self esteem. This self confidence can translate to a greater drive in pursuing what they want from life, be it a job interview, career or just personal relationships.
Over time teeth can become discolored due to age, smoking, eating certain foods and drinking certain liquids that stain the teeth. These include but are not limited to red-wine, coffee, tea, dark soda, berries, soy sauce, curry and more.

It is imperative to note that before whitening that one's dental health must be in good health, in order to decrease sensitivity and maximize the effectiveness of the whitening product. Therefore issues such as gum disease or cavities must be taken care of first. If you have crowns, veneers or fillings,we will let you know if they will bleach (whiten).
To maintain the whiteness after your treatment, we recommend limiting foods and drinks that can stain your teeth, drinking through a straw, limiting or better still quitting tobacco etc. Brush twice a day (preferably with a whitening tooth paste) and floss at least once a day.
This is ideal for small chips and to give a more pleasing smile. If one tooth is a little longer than the other, or if one tooth has some bumps on it, or if a tooth is pointy (like vampire teeth), those areas can be re-contoured to a softer, rounder, more pleasing look. There is no need for anesthesia. Let us give you, your smile evaluation with treatment plan and your options.
