Our Blog Creating Smiles, PC

Whether you are married or looking for that special someone, you want to look your best for him or her.

You know what to wear when you want to look nice. You know how you want your hair to look, too. Those things are nice, but those may not be the things your spouse or future spouse will notice.

Just a few years ago, USA Today reported on a survey of 5,500 single adults in the United States. Do you know what was the highest rated “must have” trait according to both men and women? Nice teeth.

According to the survey results, 58 percent of men and 71 percent of women consider bad teeth a deal-breaker.

You don’t want to miss the love of your life over something like this. Fortunately, the dentists at Creating Smiles can help. If you live near our offices in St. John and Valparaiso, call to schedule a consultation.

No matter what your issues are, a smile makeover could give you the eye-catching smile that you want.

Three Simple Fixes For Bad Smiles

The first thing we want you to know is we do not judge anyone who comes into our office. Our purpose is to keep your teeth healthy and looking nice. We are here to do whatever we can so you can feel good about your smile.

There are many options available through cosmetic dentistry, but today we want to share three simple things that you can do:

▶︎ Whiten Your Teeth
What color are your teeth? What color would you like them to be?

Most people drink coffee, tea, soft drinks, or maybe all three. Any of them and several other things can cause your teeth to change colors one sip at a time.

Many of the foods that we eat contribute to stains as well. For example, pasta sauces tend to be delicious and colorful. Even foods that are considered healthy, such as berries, can add to the gradual yellowing of your smile.

And don’t get us started on tobacco. Cigarettes, cigars, and any smokeless tobacco products is bad for your teeth. The staining is only the tip of that iceberg.

You can remove stains, and the safest and most effective way to do this is with professional teeth whitening. We can help you get started with either an in-office or take-home treatment.

And once your teeth are white, but sure to sign up for our Whitening For Life program. As long as you keep your routine cleaning appointments, we will provide the bleaching products for your teeth to stay white.

▶︎ Fix Your Damaged Teeth

We all know that accidents happen every day. People fall. People walk into things or each other. People get struck in the mouth or face, and people bite into things that are much too hard to chew.

Any of these situations can cause your teeth to chip or break. We know that this can have an emotional impact on many patients. We have helped many people who felt ashamed because one or more of their teeth weren’t all there.

This is also one of the reasons we offer ceramic crowns for our patients. A dental crown can restore the function and the appearance of your tooth. Today’s ceramic crowns look virtually like natural teeth. Most people will never know which is the fake “tooth” unless you tell them.
▶︎ Change Everything

Sometimes you just want to start over. Your teeth are crooked. You have a gap in your smile. Some of your teeth are crowded together. A few of your teeth are worn down, and to top it off you have stains.

At first, this may sound like an impossible situation to fix. In truth, you may be able to to solve it with one cosmetic service.

Veneers may be the fastest and most versatile way to transform your smile. Veneers work more like new siding for a house. We attach them to the front of your teeth, and you can have the exact smile that you have dreamed of having.
