How important is my smile?
Your smile is incredibly important. According to the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry (AACD), 99.7% of Americans think smiles are socially important and almost 75% of adults think their smile affects career advancement.
Not only is your smile important to your social and work life, but there are numerous health benefits to smiling. Studies show smiling can greatly improve your mood and level of stress. Stress reduction can help lower your blood pressure and prevent anxiety throughout the day. You are less likely to reap the benefits of smiling, however, if you believe your smile is unattractive.
What makes a smile unattractive?
According to the AACD, most people think stained, missing, and decayed teeth make a smile look unattractive. At Lake Forest Dental Arts, we offer a number of cosmetic procedures to replace missing teeth, remove stains, and repair teeth with beautiful results. Dental implants and bridges help our patients restore their smile to perfection. We offer porcelain veneers, including no-prep veneers, and at-home whitening systems to hide and remove stains from teeth. We also offer all-porcelain and porcelain fused to metal (PFM) crowns to repair teeth seamlessly.
How natural does cosmetic dentistry look?
Dr. James Fondriest approaches cosmetic dentistry with the eye of an artist. He will take every measure to oversee your procedure from start to finish with careful detail. Our porcelain veneers and all-porcelain crowns mimic the translucency of your natural teeth. Dr. Fondriest also goes to painstaking lengths to ensure all procedures improve or change the overall face in a way that is esthetically pleasing and natural.
