We specialize in beautiful smiles so if you want one to showcase, come see us at our Bee Cave office.

A Smile Is Contagious

Several studies have concluded that smiling raises your endorphin level, which are the feel-good chemicals that your body releases. One study also determined that if you smile even if you don’t feel that happy, you trick your brain into thinking you’re happy. Plus, when you smile at someone, they might just smile back. So when you smile and someone returns your smile, you’re not just making yourself happier, you’re helping others to be happy too!

A Smile Is Welcoming

Whether you’re smiling at a co-worker or a stranger you met while waiting in line at a grocery store, people will perceive you as an approachable person. Ultimately, this means people are more likely to talk to you. Your friends and family will be more likely to share with you. Another example of when it’s important to be approachable is if you’re looking for a relationship. You become much more suitable as a partner if you’re smiling and appear friendly.

A Smile Inspires Confidence

If you’re trying for a new position with a company, you want to appear confident. One way to display just how confident you are is by smiling. Showing those pearly whites a few times during an interview makes you more likely to land the job. This is also important if you’re looking to make friends. Those who have issues with their smile and try to hide their teeth automatically appear as if they don’t have confidence, no matter how good they actually feel about themselves.

A Smile Relieves Stress

People often need to vent about the stress in their day or lives. When you find a way to add a warm and understanding smile to your response, you can help reduce their stress. A smile can even lower heart rates in tense situations! Smiling can have a huge impact on your relationships with your significant other, family, friends, and even strangers.

How Can Cosmetic Dentistry Improve the Appearance of My Teeth?

Teeth. We only get one set, so it might feel like you’re stuck with what you’ve got. Fortunately for so many of us with troubled teeth, that’s just not true. The wonder of cosmetic dentistry is that it can fix just about any woes you may have in regards to your smile. In this blog post we’ll explore how the cosmetic procedures we offer here at Rigby Advanced Dental can transform your smile.

Professional Teeth Whitening

Tooth discoloration can really bring you down, making you self-conscious of your smile. It’s a common problem, especially with so many of us reliant on tooth-staining coffee or committed to our nightly glass of highly-pigmented red wine. Luckily, it’s a problem we can address. With professional whitening, we can restore your teeth to their natural brilliance using safe and effective technology.

Porcelain Veneers

Veneers are the next step up in cosmetic dentistry. They are a true commitment, but one that will deliver you a brand new smile. Because the process involves removing a layer of the enamel before bonding the custom-made veneer to the teeth, the process is permanent. The result is a truly perfect smile, one that’s straight, bright and white, and is resistant to chips and discoloration.

Full Mouth Reconstruction

Looking for a full smile-overhaul? If whitening and veneers alone won’t cut it, we can use a variety of solutions to reconstruct your smile to fit your unique needs. While cosmetic services like veneers may be incorporated, we also draw from a range of restorative techniques to address issues such as missing teeth, broken or worn down teeth, misshapen teeth, jaw pain, and more.

If you’re ready to see an improvement in your smile, the first step is to set up a consultation. We’ll talk options, process, budget, and results! Give our office a call and we’ll get your visit on the books.
