One of the first features most people notice about you is your smile. This is especially true if you’re in the job market. In a recent study from the American Dental Association, millennials cite having a beautiful smile as one of the reasons why they landed their dream job. There are many factors that play into having a beautiful smile. Not totally satisfied with yours? At Willow Smiles Dentistry, we provide a range of services across cosmetic and restorative dentistry to give our patients plenty of opportunities to have a smile that will make a good first impression.
How Young Adults Feel About Their Smiles
In the aforementioned ADA study, young adults between the ages of 18 and 34 said they avoid smiling because they’re worried about cavities and gum disease. Additionally, 30% of survey respondents said that their oral health makes them self-conscious which impacts their job interviews. If you fall into this category, we offer a few treatments that can help improve and protect your smile.
Six Month Braces & Invisalign®
Powerprox Six Month Braces® use modern brackets and wires to straighten your smile even more quickly than traditional metal braces do. For those who want a more subtle orthodontic option, we also offer Invisalign® clear aligner therapy, which uses custom-made aligners that slip over your teeth to shift them into their desired positions over time.
Zoom! Teeth Whitening & At-Home Whitening Kits
Zoom! Teeth Whitening can brighten up your smile up to eight shades in just a single, one-hour treatment. Our office also provides custom, take-home whitening trays so you can whiten your smile at home using professional-strength solutions. Our custom kits are much more comfortable and effective than the drugstore varieties.
Gum Disease Treatment
Gum disease affects millions of dental patients each year. This progressive disease begins when bacteria collects under the gumline, causing the gums to separate from the teeth. Over time, this leaves your teeth vulnerable to decay and can even lead to tooth loss. We offer deep periodontal cleanings, crown lengthening, osseous surrey, and bone grafts to help combat the effects of gum disease at our Puyallup dental office.
