Bridging the Gap for a Brand New Smile

The goal of cosmetic dentistry is to give you a complete, beautiful, natural-looking smile, and we take that task very seriously at Grinnell Street Dental.

A large portion of cosmetic dentistry isn’t actually cosmetic, believe it or not. Often, restorative dental procedures are all you need to get a great-looking grin that you are proud to show off. Missing teeth make a smile unattractive, but they also can cause problems with the functionality of your mouth. You may have problems with chewing and speaking, and your remaining teeth may shift to compensate for the missing teeth.

Why are men so hesitant to flash a big grin? Several factors, such as culture and age, factor in to how often someone smiles, but the difference between men and women is due to a psychological factor. Believe it or not, men don’t tend to notice when they are being observed throughout the day. Women notice all the time. Hard to believe, right?
