- Nearly as many, close to 88%, say they always remember someone with an especially attractive smile;

- 74% agree that an unattractive smile can hurt a person’s chances for career success; yet
Only 50% are satisfied with their smile.
You may have any number of reasons for wanting to change your smile. You may want to correct problems you’ve had since childhood such as discolored, gapped, or crooked teeth. You may want to fix conditions you’ve developed over time, like cracked or worn-down teeth, to help create a more youthful smile. You may want a beautifully natural smile instead of your opaque white crowns, discolored old bonding or dark metallic fillings from past dental work.
At the Atlanta Center for Cosmetic Dentistry, our job is to determine the right treatment for your specific problem. Today, there are a variety of techniques and materials that can correct these situations and make a real difference in your smile. If you are considering cosmetic dentistry, the best way to appreciate the end result is to look at photos of other patients we’ve helped get gorgeous smiles, especially those with problems similar to yours.
