Citadel - - SPONSOR TALK -

Think of the last time you posed for a pic­ture. Did you flash your pearly whites or did you hide your teeth? If the ap­pear­ance of your teeth is keep­ing you from feel­ing your best, you will be glad to know that there are sim­ple solutions. To­day, many peo­ple ben­e­fit from cos­metic den­tistry – a wide range of tech­niques that can en­hance your smile. Thanks to im­proved tech­nol­ogy and ma­te­ri­als, cos­met­i­cally en­hanced teeth look more nat­u­ral and last longer than they did in the past. You don’t have to set­tle for teeth that are chipped, stained or crooked. Skill­fully blend­ing sci­ence and art, your den­tist can “sculpt” a more at­trac­tive smile for you. A smile is a pow­er­ful way to com­mu­ni­cate. But if you feel self-con­scious about your teeth, you may lose this power by not smil­ing at all or by cov­er­ing your mouth when you smile. What, then, do you com­mu­ni­cate to oth­ers? Do peo­ple see you as un­friendly or shy? Do they make judg­ments about you sim­ply be­cause your teeth look un­healthy? Why should you risk mak­ing th­ese false im­pres­sions? A new smile will help you make a great im­pres­sion – both per­son­ally and pro­fes­sion­ally. At Dr. Ajwani’s Den­tal Cen­ter, a team of highly qual­i­fied Den­tal pro­fes­sion­als are al­ways ready to help you with your SMILE!

Sat­is­fied with your Smile?

When you look in the mir­ror, are you happy with what you see? Even a slight flaw in one of your teeth can de­tract from an oth­er­wise at­trac­tive smile. Do you have any stained or dis­col­ored teeth or fill­ings? Are you gums red, swollen, re­ced­ing or bleed­ing? Are any of your teeth crowded, over­lap­ping or crooked? Do any of your teeth have un­even shapes due to chips, frac­tures or rough edges? Are you miss­ing teeth or do you have large gaps be­tween teeth? Do your teeth seem out of pro­por­tion? What’s in a Smile?

It can daz­zle and sparkle, charm and en­tice. It says “Let’s talk”, “I care”, “Cheer Up”. A smile com­mu­ni­cates your feel­ings about

your­self and oth­ers. Like the lines, col­ors and shapes in a paint­ing, your teeth should work to­gether to pro­duce a pleas­ing ef­fect. A bright smile projects warmth, ap­proval, plea­sure, or self-con­fi­dence. But a dull smile is much like a sculp­ture eroded by rain and wind – some of the beauty and lus­ter is lost. Your den­tists at Dr. Ajwani’s have the artis­tic and den­tal skills nec­es­sary to re­store or “touch up” your teeth to pro­duce a more pleas­ing smile – one that projects the image you want to com­mu­ni­cate in your per­sonal and pro­fes­sional lives.

Smiles by De­sign

Den­tists at Dr. Ajwani’s are skilled at a va­ri­ety of tech­niques that can cre­ate a more daz­zling smile. Your den­tal eval­u­a­tion helps de­ter­mine whether you are a good can­di­date for a newly de­signed smile. If so, your den­tist may rec­om­mend a cos­metic den­tistry pro­ce­dure.

A Daz­zling Smile

Healthy teeth form the foun­da­tion of an ap­peal­ing smile. Teeth are free from de­cay and look at­trac­tive. The over­all ap­pear­ance of your up­per and lower six front teeth is most im­por­tant since th­ese teeth are the most vis­i­ble when you smile.


Un­healthy teeth are of­ten dis­eased and show un­sightly signs of de­cay. Stained or crooked teeth are two other flaws that de­tract from a smile.

Stained or Dis­col­ored Teeth

Old fill­ings, in­jury to tooth, smok­ing or some foods may cause stains. Brown or grey teeth are of­ten a side ef­fect of med­i­ca­tions taken in child­hood.

Crooked Teeth

Th­ese may de­velop dur­ing early child­hood. Not hav­ing enough space to ac­com­mo­date your teeth is likely the re­sult of your ge­netic her­itage.

Red Swollen Gums

In­flamed gums may bleed eas­ily on touch and re­cede. Un­healthy gums are of­ten caused by im­proper brush­ing.

Gaps in Teeth

Miss­ing teeth or teeth too small for your mouth pro­duce gaps be­tween your teeth. Causes could be ge­netic or re­sult from gum dis­ease. l

Chipped Teeth

In­juries or wear can cause chips and frac­tures. A worn flat look may re­sult from grind­ing your teeth.

Your Den­tal Eval­u­a­tion

A thor­ough den­tal eval­u­a­tion at Dr. Ajwani’s helps us as­sess the gen­eral health and cos­metic ap­pear­ance of your teeth and gums. The next step may be to de­ter­mine the best op­tions for en­hanc­ing your smile and whether prepara­tory den­tal treat­ment is needed. This is a good time to ask ques­tions, so your de­ci­sions can be based on an un­der­stand­ing of the dif­fer­ent tech­niques avail­able. It may also help you re­al­ize that cos­metic den­tistry can­not cre­ate per­fec­tion, but can greatly im­prove the ap­pear­ance of your teeth.

Mak­ing your De­ci­sion

Cos­metic den­tistry pro­ce­dures dif­fer in many ways. Cost, spe­cial care, and dura­bil­ity are a few of the vari­ables. Know­ing the ad­van­tages and dis­ad­van­tages of each op­tion can help you make an in­formed de­ci­sion.
