Why Should You Consider Cosmetic Dentistry?
Corrects Aesthetic Flaws
Dr. Mullaney offers a variety of solutions to correct different dental concerns, like whitening, veneers, and bonding. She can transform a smile with stained or dull, misshapen, or disproportioned teeth, as well as gaps between teeth, short/stubby teeth, and other imperfections.
Makes You look younger
As we age, it’s common to experience tooth enamel discoloration and erosion. And because teeth form the underlying structure for lips and cheeks, when teeth are missing, these facial features cave inward and create a more aged appearance. By correcting these and other dental issues, Dr. Mullaney will help you look youthful and attractive.
Boosts Your confidence
A lack of self-confidence can affect your life in many ways. When you’re self-conscious about your teeth, you may not feel bold enough to speak out in your team meeting, attend extra work functions, or talk with your boss about all your brilliant ideas. Perhaps you avoid smiling, so people think you’re never happy. You’re much more likely to be successful at work, and in your personal life, when you aren’t constantly concerned about your appearance. Cosmetic dentistry can give you a smile you’re proud to share with everyone.
