Do you shudder every time you look at your smile in the mirror? Do you think that there’s no way that your smile can be made beautiful? Whether you used to have an attractive smile, or you never enjoyed one, it’s easy to get trapped into thinking that there’s no way to save your smile.
But you have to understand that no smile is hopeless–everyone can enjoy a beautiful smile that’s also healthy, functional, and comfortable.
Decayed and Missing Teeth
What can you do if your teeth are decayed or have even been lost as a result of decay, damage, or infection? Surely that’s a hopeless situation?
Not at all, we can take this smile and make it flawless. Decayed teeth can be restored with ceramic tooth-colored fillings or porcelain crowns to make them beautiful and strong again. If you have ongoing gum disease, that will have to be treated to ensure your smile gets healthy and stays healthy.
If you have missing teeth, then dental implants are your best approach to replacing them. Dental implants look just like your natural teeth and function just like them, too. You’ll be delighted to be able to return to eating all your favorite foods.
Cracked, Chipped, and Worn Teeth
What can you do if your teeth are cracked, chipped, and worn down? If your teeth are breaking in your mouth, that’s hopeless, right?
As discouraging and difficult as this can be to endure, this isn’t a hopeless situation, either. When your teeth are being chipped, cracked, or worn, we can build your teeth back up with porcelain veneers or dental crowns, depending on the extent of the damage and the position of the teeth.
You might think it’s hopeless because you already got porcelain veneers and they just cracked, too. But with neuromuscular dentistry, we can ensure that your bite is properly balanced, and T-Scan technology can confirm that your new porcelain veneers or crowns aren’t experiencing excess force that can lead to cracking, chipping, and wear.

Mismatched and Unattractive Restorations
But what if you’ve already gotten cosmetic or restorative dentistry, and the results were bad? Surely you’re stuck with these terrible restorations?
If you’re unhappy with your restorations, we can remove them and replace them with more attractive versions. You might think your smile is hopeless because your earlier cosmetic or restorative dentistry didn’t turn out well, but you’re wrong. First, your dentist is the single greatest determiner of your cosmetic dentistry results. If you’ve worked with another dentist, let us show you what sets us apart.
Second, when your dentistry is done in stages, it is more likely to look different than if you get a smile makeover all at once.
Finally, dental technology has changed dramatically for the better. Your past restorations may have been state of the art when you had them placed ten or twenty years ago, but today we have options that are more attractive and more durable.
This applies even if you’ve lost all your teeth and are depending on dentures. FOY ® Dentures are unlike any dentures you have ever worn–they are designed using neuromuscular dentistry principles and manufactured using the latest materials and techniques. And with the support of dental implants, you can enjoy function just like your natural teeth.
No Smile Is Hopeless
We understand how discouraging it can be to look at an unattractive smile in the mirror every day, but you don’t have to be bound by that smile. Instead, we can give you a new, flawless smile that will inspire you every time you look in the mirror.
