You’ve always wanted an attractive smile. And with good reason. The Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry released a poll that tells us, people with an attractive smile are considered more friendly, successful, and intelligent. Another study, this one by Kelton Research, showed that after teeth whitening, job applicants were more likely to get hired and get paid more. When you look at it this way, cosmetic dentistry is a practical solution to enhance your image, which can improve your opportunity in social, romantic, and professional circles.
As a family and cosmetic dentist in Buckhead Atlanta, I offer many conservative esthetic treatments that can give you the smile you want…the smile that will help you achieve and exceed your life’s goals. You can visit the cosmetic dentistry page on my main website, but before your cosmetic dentistry consultation, take this short quiz to assess your smile. Your answers will help me determine the very best procedures to meet your unique needs.
First, brush and floss your teeth, remove your makeup, and get a hand mirror. Sit down in a quiet, comfortable area, and have a pen and paper handy to jot down your answers. Then look at your smile. Really look at it.

Do your teeth have lines or spots?
