The beginning of a new year revives hope and makes us consider a fresh start asking ourselves how we can be better, look better, feel better, and generally put our best foot forward!
We took on our own office makeover project at the beginning of the year, knowing it was time to refresh our office look and refresh our patients' experiences! Take a look at the photos of our updated office.
But you don't have to wait for January to be your best -- your dental health always needs your attention. If you have resolved to improve the health and appearance of your smile, we encourage you to seek information from our office about the treatments that will make the biggest difference for you. Also check out our Smile Gallery for multiple Before and After photos of Imagine Dentistry patients... you can get ideas of what might be possible for your own smile transformation!

Depending upon what needs to be done to improve your smile, necessary dental procedures might be quicker and easier than you think! Dental treatments such as crowns, fillings, and veneers, which often only require one or two office visits, can be used to change the length or shape of your natural teeth, eliminate problem areas, and whiten and brighten your smile.
When you have severely cracked/fractured teeth or have missing teeth, you may feel embarrassed or self-conscious. Replacing missing or badly damaged teeth with dental implants, bridges or dentures will give you a boost of confidence, and help to improve your oral health.
Dental implants are strong, sturdy, and look just like natural teeth. They can be used to replace a single tooth, several teeth that are located close together, or all the teeth in your mouth.
Some of the benefits you can receive by replacing missing teeth with dental implants include:
Giving you a straighter, whiter smile
Boost of self-confidence
Improved oral health replacing fractured or cracked teeth in your mouth can help you avoid dental abscesses and gum disease
Better nutrition you are able to eat better, well-balanced meals as your dental implants provide the stability and strength you need to eat various nutritious foods
Changing the appearance of your face dental implants give your face a fuller, healthier appearance by filling out your cheeks and making your mouth appear less sunken
Improve the way others perceive you
If your goal is straighter teeth, you may want to consider Clear Correct clear braces. Instead of using uncomfortable metal wires and brackets to move your teeth, Clear Correct uses a series of customized clear aligners to shift your teeth into proper position.
The clear aligners are virtually invisable over your natural teeth so no one will know that you are wearing braces. And teeth straightening using Clear Correct aligners can be done in half the time of traditional braces.
Patients who are looking to improve the color of their teeth can do so with veneers or professional teeth whitening treatments, which are both cosmetic dentistry services that achieve fast results for a more radiant smile.
Both at-home and in-office teeth whitening treatments can whiten and brighten your smile. Unlike over-the-counter teeth whitening products, in-office treatments used under the care of a dentist can safely and effectively remove stains and discoloration so your teeth appear three to five shades whiter.
Sometimes stains on your teeth are stubborn and hard to remove. If you happen to have stains and discoloration that don't seem to respond to at-home or in-office professional teeth whitening treatments, you may want to consider veneers. Veneers take a very thin layer of porcelain and apply it to the surface of your teeth. This instantly brightens and whitens your smile.
No matter what cosmetic dental procedures you have done, your smile won't keep looking its best if you don't maintain it. Scheduling routine professional dental cleanings - typically every four to six months - maintains the appearance of your smile and keeps your oral health on track.
During a professional cleaning, a dental hygienist uses specialized dental tools that clean both the surface of your teeth and areas below the gum line. Cleaning below the gum line helps to remove plaque and bacteria that can't be reached with regular brushing and flossing. By removing the plaque and bacteria from below the gum line, you can actively work to prevent gum disease.
Additionally, bad breath is often dental related. Regular cleanings can prevent and treat gingivitis, and keep your breath fresh.
A professional dental cleaning can also help you maintain a whiter and brighter smile. The specialized dental tools used during a cleaning can remove some stains that may dull or discolor your teeth.
