From the time we’re little, we’re told to smile as a way of being “nice” or showing friendliness. As it turns out, that simple practice may offer far more benefits than just demonstrating kindness. Multiple studies have shown that smiling offers key health benefits, including a reduction in stress and depression. What’s more, people who have healthy-looking smiles are more likely to be trusted and to appear more capable and self-confident, which means they’re more likely to achieve success both professionally and socially.
Yet if your smile isn’t as attractive as it could be, you may be one of the millions of people who holds back from smiling – and that means you’re missing out on all the benefits smiling can offer.
Top Technology + Advanced Training = Better Results
Fortunately, getting a great-looking smile today is a lot different than it was even a few years ago. While correcting many dental problems used to mean costly, painful and prolonged treatments, today’s “smile design” approach uses state-of-the-art technology and techniques to achieve beautiful results in less time – and at less cost – than ever before.
At Dentistry for All Ages, Dr. Freano relies on specialized training to address even the most complex issues so his patients can feel confident in the treatment they’re receiving. Each patient undergoes a thorough evaluation and exam to ensure the treatment program is customized for their specific needs.
As part of that evaluation, Dr. Freano uses the Dawson Diagnostic Wizard, a comprehensive exam tool that uses multiple types of images, including x-rays and photographs, as well as exam reports and your own input to compile a step-by-step program of treatment aimed at getting you the beautiful smile you want.
The Wizard uses two- and three-dimensional imaging technology to serve as the basis for developing customized treatment. The imaging allows both the dentist and the patient to literally “see” how multiple problems will be addressed in a unified approach that offers superior results.
Better Alignment, Better Dental Health
Because the Wizard evaluates your mouth on multiple levels, it can help identify potential issues that could cause problems down the road, including misalignments that can contribute to jaw joint problems like temporomandibular joint disorder (TMJ). That means the smile design program you’ll undergo will not only help you look better and feel more confident, but it can also help you avoid more major dental problems in the future.
How? It’s simple: Teeth that are better aligned are easier to clean, which means fewer chances for decay to develop and a lower risk for cavities and gum disease. And because teeth are easier to clean, you may find your breath is fresher too.
