Our smile is one of our most important features. Some surveys show that an attractive smile is an asset both in the workplace and in social settings. People with attractive smiles are perceived to have positive character traits such as honesty, sincerity, professionalism, motivation, and warmth. In studies, individuals with attractive smiles more frequently received job offers after interviews, and were able to negotiate better compensation packages.
Perhaps it is this innate understanding of physical perceptions that leads men and women to seek ways to improve the look of their smiles, specifically, the look of their teeth. Cosmetic dentistry is unlike any other form of cosmetic treatment today in that men and women tend to feel equally comfortable with the enhancement of their smile. Whereas a man may not visit a dermatologist for anti-aging treatments, he will more readily schedule a consultation with his trusted dentist to handle concerns such as discoloration, gaps, chips, or cracks in teeth.
We offer a number of cosmetic dental treatments for patients from Longview and surrounding areas. Problems like dull, yellow teeth can be quickly treated either in our office or at home, using professional grade whitening solution. Stubborn stains or other problems may be best addressed with porcelain veneers. Our patients discover their most suitable cosmetic treatment during a comprehensive consultation with Dr. Bruyere, in which they can discuss what they like and dislike about their smile, and what they would like to change.
One smile enhancing treatment that men, in particular, may struggle with is teeth straightening. Conventional braces are cumbersome and quite visible in the smile, aspects of treatment that men may find unacceptable. We understand the needs of the working professional, the busy student, and the individual who simply desires smile transformation in the most discreet manner. For the correction of misalignment that affects the smile aesthetic, our patients may choose Six Month Smile treatment. This process uses proven techniques and barely-there appliances to reposition teeth quickly.
Our dental team is committed to helping each individual patient achieve his or her smile and oral health goals. To learn more about our extensive services, contact our office at (903) 708-6116.
