History Indicates, To Make A Better First Impression, Begin With Your Smile
With cosmetic dentistry, we will help your smile light up the room if you enter. By way of various methods, we will create that attractive smile of which you’ve been fantasizing.
Natural-looking alternatives including advanced metal-free crowns, porcelain veneers, bridges, and inlays/onlays look, feel and perform just like your very own teeth. Plus, did you know that, cosmetic dentistry could clear away wrinkles and lines around your cheeks, lip area and the rest of your face… with no plastic surgery?Our team’s experience and expertise in aesthetic and restorative dental care is well known in the Alexandria VA area.
As soon as we are in tune with your wants and wishes for your new smile, we analyze the shape of your face, the features of your nose, and the color of your eyes. However, it is the shape and contour of your lips that is the highest priority. Our cosmetic team will also analyze an esthetic list of factors like the presentation of your eyes and nose in contrast to your other facial measurements.
We can remodel your smile to make you look younger, make your smile whiter and more sparkly, reduce facial lines and wrinkles, quickly make crooked teeth straight, and, finally, give your sex appeal a major boost.
Keep in mind, however, Dr. Longman and the smile team aren’t just concentrating on your good looks. We believe that 90% of a beautiful smile happens when we make your smile healthy, sound, and in occlusal harmony so that you can enjoy laughing, talking, chewing and kissing… and look great doing it.
The Cold Facts Are…
In an independent analysis in 2008, it was found: Practically all Americans (98.7%) consider a smile is a crucial social asset.
97% of adult men and women believe a stunning smile really makes a particular person more pleasing to members of the opposite sex.
Three-quarters (76%) of adults think an unappealing smile can easily harm someone’s chances for career success.
Investigators questioned, “What exactly is the first thing you notice in someone else’s smile?” The most common responses were:
- A Straight Smile
- Brightness & Color of Teeth
- Cleanliness of Teeth
- Is Their Smile Sincere?
- Missing Any Teeth?
- Sparkle of Smile
Then respondents were asked, “What exactly would you most want to improve about your own smile?” The most common answer was: “Whiter and Brighter Teeth”.
Fair or unfair, looks matter in today’s world.
