Your smile is the primary thing people observe when they meet you, in fact, your personality, vigor, and well-being all are visible in your expression long before anything else registers.

Because of your hesitation to smile it can make you seem unhappy or aloof, making it hard to connect with people personally and professionally.
The way teeth bite and chew are one of the cornerstones of a successful, long-term result. Teeth may chip, wear unevenly and even become loose. In patients with teeth that are already worn and broken down, it is essential we figure out why the teeth look like they do. Then we can work to eliminate the causes of the breakdown. We pride ourselves on creating a good bite which is essential for teeth that are built to last.
