Time To Improve Your Image? Begin With Your Smile

Using cosmetic dental work, we can make your smile illuminate a room whenever you enter. Through different processes, we’ll create that attractive smile of which you’ve been dreaming.

Natural-looking solutions such as advanced metal-free crowns, porcelain veneers, bridges, and inlays/onlays appear, feel and function like your very own teeth. Plus, did you know that, cosmetic dentistry could possibly clear away creases and lines around your cheeks, mouth area and the rest of your face… without having plastic surgery?

Our team’s expertise and experience in cosmetic and health and functional restorative dental care is well respected by dentists in the Tulsa area.

As soon as we are in sync with your vision of your new smile, we consider your facial shape, the features of your nose, and the color of your eyes. However, it is the shape and contour of your lips that is the highest priority. Dr. Gerkin will also evaluate a number of other factors like the harmony of your eyes and nose in relation to your other facial dimensions.

Dr. Gerkin can remodel your smile to make you look more youthful, make your smile whiter and more prominent, do away with the lip lines that give you that “elderly” smile, perform “Instant Orthodontics” to straighten crooked teeth, and, finally, give your sex appeal a major boost.

Don’t forget, though, Dr. Gerkin and the smile team aren’t just focusing on your appearance. We realize cosmetic dentistry won’t help you unless we make your smile healthy, functional, and in balanced occlusion so that you can enjoy laughing, talking, chewing and kissing… and look great doing it.

The Cold Facts Are…

In an independent study in 2008, it was discovered: Practically all Americans (98.7%) think a smile is an important social asset.

97% of adult men and women feel a stunning smile makes a particular person more desirable to members of the opposite sex.

Three-quarters (76%) of adult men and women feel an unappealing smile can easily damage an individual’s odds for career success.

Gerkin Dentistry Patient Eldon Investigators questioned, “What exactly is the very first thing you see in another person’s smile?” The most common replies were:

• Straightness of the Smile
• Brightness & Shade of Teeth
• Cleanness of Teeth
• Sincerity of the Smile
• Missing Any Teeth?
• Sparkle of Smile

Then respondents answered this question, “What would you most want to further improve about your own smile?” The most common answer was: “Whiter & Brighter Teeth”.

For better or worse, appearances matter these days.

As outlined in additional research by social psychologists in and around Tulsa, many people take about three seconds assessing your appearance before they begin to form a list of perceptions about your:

• educational level
• career skills
• accomplishments
• character
• social rank
• dependability
• sense of humor
• social beliefs

Now, the researchers didn’t say you have to go all “Hollywood”, however…

…improving your smile could make you appear younger, boost your self-esteem and self-confidence, as well as increase your conversation skills, your attractiveness, and favorably influence your personal and professional relationships.
