You never get a second chance to make a first impression

Dentist Office in Raytown and Pleasant Hill, Missouri

                 As the saying (or commericial) goes, you never get a second chance to make a first impression. Many believe a person's smile is the focal point of their facial impression and it is often the first aspect of your appearance a person notices about you, and often the last aspect they forget. Although we shouldn't judge a book by its cover, your smile conveys a significant impression of what you are about and what is important to you, whether this impression is accurate or not. If you don't smile because of what is underneath, change your smile because smiling is happiness, and happiness is success.

                An impressive smile will affect your personal life, career, increase your self-esteem and your overall confidence in life. Discolored, crooked, cracked or ugly teeth create self-doubt and others can sense this about you. Think about how adding a million dollar smile would affect your life. Your winning smile signifies you are intelligent, educated and successful.

               Today's cosmetic dentistry materials and techniques are truly revolutionary and can turn even the worst smile into something beautiful. Cosmetic dentistry and facial esthetics are a sound investment in yourself, which is your most valuable asset.

               I cringe when patients need to remove troubled teeth, yet they elect not to replace them with a bridge, or better yet an implant. A dental implant placed properly can create an esthetic outcome which mimics or surpasses the esthetic quality of a natural tooth. Today, adults with crowded or crooked teeth no longer need to fear years of embarrassing braces. Invisalign and similar products can straighten teeth without interuppting your life.

               Cosmetic dentistry changes lives, pure and simple. The increased confidence and happiness my patients' new smiles brings them is truly amazing. When you can change people's lives for the better, going to work everyday is a true blessing.
