The Magic of Your Smile

Here at Fair Oaks Quality Dental we understand the value of having good teeth and a pleasing smile. A smile can do magic in human relations. Your smile is often the first thing people notice about you. However, flaws in one’s teeth can make a person self-conscious about smiling. We know the importance of fixing one’s teeth so they can be confident about smiling.

5 Reasons to Have a Great Smile

Here are just a few reasons smiling is important.

  1. Smiling helps to reduce stress. Even when you are feeling blue you will actually feel better if you force yourself to smile.

  2. Smiling helps you make a great first impression. In one survey 70% of adults say a smile can make or break a first impression. OAK BROOK, Ill., June 11, 2018 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/

  3. Smiles are contagious. For example: How do you feel when you are greeted with a smile? A smile from someone makes you want to smile back.

  4. When you smile, you are viewed as more attractive and sociable.

  5. Smiling projects confidence. This can help you get business and close deals.

Therefore, crooked teeth, chipped or stained teeth, etc. are problems that can make someone self-conscious and reluctant to smile. The good news – with today’s dental technology we can do a lot to improve a smile!

What Cosmetic Dentistry Can Do for You

The word Cosmetic comes from French, cosmétique which came from Greek kosmētikos meaning skilled in arranging. So Cosmetic Dentistry is like "re-arranging" your teeth so that you can have a beautiful smile. With Cosmetic Dentistry our aim is to create a positive change to how your teeth look as well as improve your health. There is no reason to suffer from dental deformities such as crooked teeth, chipped teeth, missing teeth, weak or damaged teeth, etc. Such problems can negatively affect your bite and cause further problems with your teeth. Many solutions exist to not only repair your teeth but improve your smile.

Look at this before and after from one of our patients:

Cosmetic Procedures

There are many types of Cosmetic Dentistry. Here is a list of some of them and what they can do for you:

Teeth Whitening

Our dental office whitening treatments are much more effective than over-the-counter treatments. You will get better and more long lasting results. Additionally, you will want to have professional cleaning done before whiting your teeth. Plaque, tartar, and other debris can cause uneven whitening. Therefore, we recommend professional cleaning before any whitening treatments.


When a tooth has become damaged beyond the simple fix of a filling it requires a crown. For example, a crown can be used to protect a weak tooth from breaking, hold together an already broken or worn tooth, cover a tooth which has a large filling or dental implant.

Dental Bridge

A dental bridge literally bridges the gap created by one or more missing teeth. It is made up of two or more crowns for the teeth to fill the gap. A bridge can restore your smile and your ability to properly chew and speak. It also maintains the shape of your face and helps prevent remaining teeth from drifting out of position.


Dental implants replace tooth roots. They provide a strong foundation for fixed (permanent) or removable replacement teeth that are made to match your natural teeth. They are durable and will last many years and could last a lifetime. It will help with the problem of deteriorating jaw bone because there will be a “tooth” there to create the force of a natural tooth.


Dental veneers are thin shells of porcelain or composite resin that are custom made to fit over teeth. They provide a natural, attractive look. They can be used to fix chipped, stained, misaligned, worn down, uneven or abnormally spaced teeth.

Gum Reshaping

Gums that are low or too high on can affect your smile. For example, gums that cover too much of your teeth can make your teeth look smaller. Whereas gums that are receding can make your teeth look too long. Gum reshaping can even out an uneven gum line and give you a smile you can be proud of.
