Improving the look of your smile can obviously make you feel better about your appearance, but it can actually have some larger effects on your life that you might not expect. To learn about the various cosmetic dentistry options you can consider at McNulty and Dancausse General Dentistry, give us a call at 704-766-8662 to set up your personal consultation.
We, of course, help our patients improve the health of their smiles so they can look forward to many years of proper oral function and a decent smile, but we also do a lot more at our Charlotte, NC dentist office. We don’t want to settle for an adequate smile – we want to help you achieve the flawless Hollywood smile that you’ve always dreamed of having!
We do our best to get rid of any barrier standing between you and the smile that you want. We do work with a large variety of dental insurance companies, but they often don’t cover the cost of cosmetic services since they’re not technically required for your oral health. To give you more options to pay for the treatments you want, we accept various payment options, including third-party financing from CareCredit and LendingClub.
In addition to accepting various forms of payment, we also make paying for your treatments a little bit easier for you by giving a five percent discount on any services you receive from us if you are able to pay for it fully on the day of service. Those savings can really add up depending on how involved your treatments are!
It can sometimes be difficult to find the time to see a dentist for a necessary dental cleaning and exam, let alone making room in your schedule for something you want to get done but don’t necessarily need. To make things a little simpler for you, we open an hour earlier than nine-to-five dentists. You can see us as early as 8:00 a.m. every weekday!
Find The Cosmetic Treatments That Are Ideal For You
Every patient has a unique smile so we provide a personalized approach no matter what. Regardless of the flaws you’re dealing with, we will likely be able to address them under one roof at our office. To help you determine what services are best suited for your wants and needs, we will:
- Listen very intently to your particular concerns and – more exciting – the smile goals you have in mind
- Thoroughly assess the current look and health of your smile using our time-tested expertise and some state-of-the-art dental technology, like our digital X-ray machines
- Explain your options for treatment that could potentially solve your smile woes
- Answer any questions that you may have, whether about your smile flaws or about any services that you might be interested in
- Make recommendations if you wish but also make you feel empowered and able to take control of your own smile transformation by giving you the final say in your treatment plan
We will happily go into as much detail about what a treatment can do and what the process will look and feel like, but for now, here are some basics on the cosmetic options that we can offer you:
- Dental veneers, which are thin shells of tooth-colored material that can be used to hide a large assortment of smile flaws, including chips, cracks, stains, small gaps between teeth, worn-down teeth, and so much more
- Teeth whitening so we can brighten up the shade of white that your teeth are using a highly-effective and convenient take-home whitening treatment
- Tooth bonding, which is a more cost-effective alternative to veneers and uses tooth-colored material to conceal a large variety of smile flaws
If you have any oral health problems or dental damage, we can also provide restorative dentistry options to improve the health and look of those teeth as well! We can’t wait to help you attain a better looking smile!
Smile Improvements Aren’t Just About Improving Your Look
While it’s obviously a good thing to feel more confident about the way you look, cosmetically improving your smile can actually have wide-ranging effects on your life. Innumerable studies have demonstrated that people generally are more attracted to people with a beautiful smile, but some have also suggested that people find those that often show off a great smile more trustworthy. Let’s go into one hypothetical situation to demonstrate the effect this could have.
Say you have a job interview. You’ve just visited a dentist and gotten a teeth whitening treatment. You’re nervous about the interview, but you can’t stop smiling throughout it, partially because you’re nervous and also because you’re feeling more confident about your smile than you have in a really long time, possibly more so than you ever have.
You feel like the interview went well when you leave, and not long afterward, you get a phone call with a job offer. They tell you what a great first impression you made and that they’re excited to start working with you and getting to know you more. Your future boss even comments on how happy they are to have someone with such a good attitude joining their team.
To celebrate your job offer, you stop off at your local coffee shop for a delicious pick-me-up. You’re in there often, but this time, you’re in a really great mood. It shows and those around you notice it immediately, including that cute regular that you see in the cafe so often. After you order, you decide to be brave and ask them out. To your surprise, they smile wide and accept. You make some tentative plans for dinner that evening and pocket their phone number.
Every time you catch a glimpse of yourself in the mirror that day, you smile and get another little boost to your self-esteem. It’s easily one of the best days you’ve had in a long time and, in a way, it’s all thanks to the shift in mood and demeanor that your improved smile helped make happen.
