You don’t have to say a word; your smile speaks volumes about you! Researchers have found that people with nice smiles when compared to those individuals with flawed teeth and gums, are perceived to be:
These researchers’ findings of the power of a smile are great news for patients with terrific teeth and gums. But these findings can be quite distressing for patients who are unhappy about the appearance of their smiles. Cosmetic dentistry infuses confidence into Greensboro NC patients’ lives, by restoring the youthful and vibrant appearance of their teeth or by fixing features that have always been a source of frustration and embarrassment.
There is also something to be said for attractive smiles being equated with better health. Often, oral health problems have cosmetic consequences; for instance, cavities can look like dark, pitted spots on the surface of a tooth, teeth that appear overly “long” can be indicative of gum recession, and chipped teeth can be signs of damaging bruxism or teeth-grinding. Triad Dentistry’s Drs Steven Hatcher, Chad Merrell, Victoria Santiago-Coiro, and Brian Coates partner with adult patients to maintain their oral health, while board-certified pediatric dentist Dr. Sona Isharani works with children and teens to prevent common conditions that threaten their oral health. So, patients of all ages can continue to smile confidently, speak clearly, and eat comfortably. Of course, this also says nothing of the overall, systemic health consequences that arise from conditions such as gum disease. The bacteria and inflammation associated with oral infections have been linked by researchers to all sorts of medical problems, including respiratory and cardiovascular diseases.
A wide range of services are available to restore the health and appearance of your teeth or to improve the appearance of your smile exclusively.
Products that you buy online or at the store often don’t get the results you desire. They can even cause damage to your teeth and delicate oral tissues. Professional whitening at the office of Triad Dentistry contains ingredients that are proven to whiten, and at sufficiently concentrated levels to lift stain molecules. Moreover, since the application of the whitening agent is overseen by a licensed dentist, you’re assured the results will be even and natural-looking and side effects such as sensitivity and tissue damage will be minimized or eliminated.
Our dentists use the KöR system, which effectively treats even deep discoloration that isn’t responsive to other professional whitening systems. This two-step process starts with in-office treatment and progresses to home whitening. This approach allows you to retain the dramatic results achieved with chairside treatment.
This was my first visit at the office. All of the staff were very friendly and knowledgeable. I have a thorough evaluation of my teeth and felt like they really wanted to get to know me and the goals I have for my dental health. I feel like I have found a great dental practice!
Our dentists use safe, natural-looking materials to treat tooth decay and cavities and to build up otherwise damaged teeth. Options for restorative treatment include tooth-colored fillings and porcelain crowns. Triad Dentistry can make crowns onsite in a single visit with advanced software and equipment known as CEREC (“tooth in a day”). At other dentists’ offices in the Triad, you’d have to wait for several days or a few weeks for an outside lab to make the new crown that will replace your damaged or decayed natural crown.
Patients who feel that not enough of their natural crown shows in their smile may benefit from crown lengthening procedures, which involve removing excess tissue, so your teeth look more proportional with the rest of your smile.
This is by no means an exhaustive list of what Triad Dentistry offers to improve your smile, oral health, and well-being. Call (336) 383-1482 to schedule your consultation at the Greensboro NC office.
