The benefits of quality dentistry:

A beautiful smile

A smile doesn’t just indicate healthy teeth and gums; your dental health also plays a significant role in  how  confident you feel. Think about it… If you are self-conscious about your smile, you’re not going to feel very good about interacting with others.

Research shows that the better you feel about your looks, the better you feel about yourself. You can be more relaxed, being in the moment and able to laugh joyfully. You feel more confident and radiant.

The fact that smiling itself boosts your mood has a further positive impact because smiling has a contagious effect.” When you smile, others are more likely to smile back and are more drawn to you, thereby increasing your confidence and happiness even more. Most people are not aware of how important a smile is in how perceive them or in  how they feel about themselves “, say psychologist Ann Demarais, Ph.D

Eat with comfort

Have you ever sat  for  a meal at home or in a restaurant and had to decline the serving because of a  tooth problem ? Have you been bothered about food wedging between your teeth as you eat or had the immediate need for a toothpick? Have you had pain when eating?  How many people have you seen cover their mouths with their hand to deal with an irritating dental problem? That is not pleasant and shouldn’t be.

Boost your self-esteem and gain more confidence

Why feel embarrassed to smile and feel withdrawn and introverted? Make a positive change and feel so much better. Have a look at our “smile analysis form” and let us work together.

Avoid pain and inconvenience

Ouch! No patient wants  the pain and inconvenience of a cracked tooth. Avoiding a cracked tooth is oftentimes not rocket science. It can sometimes happen unexpectedly but most times it is preventable. A detailed clinical assessment will highlight any potential problems that need attention The goal is hasslefree long-term dental comfort. It is all in the planning.

Avoiding an abscess developing can also be nipped in the bud. Don’t wait for a crisis.

There is a need, want or desire. Something has motivated the caller to make the call. The telephone number may hav…e been gotten by recommendation or the person may have taken the time and effort to surf the Internet looking for the particular procedure in mind.

Oftentimes the call has an urgency to fulfil a pressing need or may just be a spur of the moment flash.

So too with a call to our dental office. Our staff are trained to take the call and guide you.

This morning a patient called asking about laser tooth bleaching. We did not know how he had found the practice or how much you knew about the procedure. The receptionist enquired if he had researched the subject on YouTube. He was surprised to know that even laser tooth bleaching is featured on YouTube.

We told him that tooth bleaching has specific indications and is a prescriptive procedure. The natural teeth need to be in a condition for bleaching. This can only be assessed by clinical examination. In this office we offer complete dental care designed to help you keep your teeth for life. Bleaching may in fact be one of the treatment modalities needed in this case.

A simple phone call about bleaching may be the catalyst in helping you get good advice about the total health of your mouth and teeth. Teeth are designed to last a lifetime and you want them to feel good and look good.

Give us a call on 011 483 2281 for a free consultation. We will guide you in the way that you want to go. Your telephone call will certainly have been worthwhile.
