I’m Embarrassed to Smile

Beautiful, Confident SmileYour smile sets you apart and reflects your personality. It is one of the features that makes you…well, you! Because a beautiful smile is so important, cosmetic or structural damage can take a huge toll on your appearance and your self-esteem. Fortunately, Dr. Maxwell Johnson offers a complete selection of restorative and cosmetic dentistry procedures to rejuvenate your smile. As he designs your treatment, he will keep your other facial features in mind. After your dental care, your smile could transform your entire appearance, helping your look happier, more rejuvenated, and years younger.

Porcelain Veneers for a Dramatic Esthetic Change

Because porcelain veneers have such diverse functions, they can be one of the most effective ways to improve your look and self-confidence. If you are struggling with cracks, chips, stains, or slight dental misalignment, porcelain veneers can fully conceal these blemishes.

Dr. Johnson will typically place veneers in two office visits. At the first appointment, he will trim off a minor amount of dental enamel. This reshaping process will help the porcelain to lie flat against your teeth. After prepping your teeth, Dr. Johnson will take impressions and design your veneers. While aesthetics are, of course, a major concern, Dr. Johnson will also consider your bite alignment and the width of your smile. Ceramists at our dental lab will then fabricate your veneers. They will be finished in about two weeks. Once the veneers are in place, you will immediately enjoy the stunning results of your treatment.

Teeth Whitening for a Brighter, Younger Smile

Dental discoloration is one of the most common reasons that patients feel embarrassed about their smiles. Fortunately, Dr. Johnson offers three types of teeth whitening. He will help you choose the method that is most suited to your budget, lifestyle and treatment goals. Options include:

  • In-office Opalescence® Boost: Johnson or your hygienist will coat your teeth in a powerful, chemically activated whitening gel. In an hour or less, your smile could be several shades lighter.
  • Take-home Whitening Trays: We provide Opalescence® trays and whitening gel, which are only available through a dentist. You will wear the trays for about two weeks, and you can choose daytime or overnight treatment. After the full regimen, you could enjoy comparable results to in-office whitening.
  • Opalescence® Go Trays: Disposable, preloaded whitening trays are convenient and affordable. They are safer and offer more dramatic results than over-the-counter bleaching products.

Replace Missing Teeth and Restore Your Self-Confidence

Missing teeth can be a major source of embarrassment. If you have gaps in your grin, you will benefit from our full range of restorative procedures. Dental bridges are the traditional choice. Dr. Johnson can provide a custom-made restoration, which will attach to your abutment teeth with crowns. We use advanced materials, which are both durable and realistic.

For even more lifelike results, we can supply an implant-supported crown, bridge, or denture. Dr. Johnson has advanced training in dental implants, and he can place the titanium posts during an exact oral surgery. When you have healed, he will attach your restoration. Because it will connect to the permanent implant posts, it will never slip out of place. With implants, you will not have to worry about the embarrassment of a loose, uncomfortable restoration.

Dental Crowns Cn Improve Cosmetics and Function

Crowns have both cosmetic and functional uses. A crown can restore your cracked, decayed, or weakened tooth. It can also conceal cosmetic flaws, although Dr. Johnson will typically recommend more conservative treatment, if possible. A crown will fit all the way over your tooth, so the dentist will need to reshape it to create a sturdy foundation. To help you feel fully confident about your smile, Dr. Johnson typically recommends white crowns made from ceramic or zirconia. After reshaping your tooth, Dr. Johnson will take impressions to make sure that your crown matches the overall look of your smile. Then our lab will craft your restoration with an extreme attention to detail.

Permanently Straighten Crooked Teeth

Maybe you feel embarrassed by your uneven teeth, but you think that braces would make you even more self-conscious. Six Month Smiles® is a subtle accelerated orthodontics treatment designed for minor cosmetic issues. The treatment is similar to traditional braces, and it uses brackets and wires to straighten teeth. However, the appliance will match the color of your smile. Plus, Dr. Johnson will carefully calculate the precise force needed to reposition your teeth. With this meticulous planning, he can usually give you a stunning grin in about half a year.
