“In the world we live in, if you have bad teeth, people judge you,” Bob said. “I know I had a hard time getting a promotion until I got my stained teeth dealt with.” As a young man, Bob took a prescription medication that turned some of his teeth a yellowish-brown color. “I never smoked a day in my life,” he said, “But with my smile, you would have thought I smoked a pack a day for twenty years!”
Teeth whitening is one of the most popular and familiar cosmetic dentistry services in Quincy. There are several ways a cosmetic dentist can whiten your teeth, including the use of a special brush-on treatment that delivers results almost instantly, permanent veneers and more. Cosmetic dentistry can also be used to address broken or misshapen teeth, as well as missing teeth.
“I’d lost a tooth in a car accident,” Sheila said. “It wasn’t exactly sexy, you know what I mean?” Her local dentist has provided her with a temporary fix, but Sheila wasn’t satisfied with how it look or fit. “It really wiggled, which is not what you want to have happen when you’re kissing someone, you know?” she said with a laugh. “So I talked to the Quincy dentist about what could be done, and he explained dental implants to me.”
Dental implants are the go to solution for adult patients who are missing one or more teeth, who do not need a full set of dentures. “The process took a couple of weeks, but the results have been fantastic,” Sheila said. “Now I have a tooth there, and it’s going to stay there. It’s secure and doesn’t move around. This means I feel a lot more confident. Sexier too. Which isn’t always something you can say after a trip to the dentist!”
