We understand that some patients are very nervous about going to the dentist. For those patients, we offer nitrous oxide and other medications, as needed, for restorative procedures. Dr McConnell is very well known for his calming demeanor and gentle touch.
At your first appointment, Dr. McConnell will be happy to explain any of these procedures to you. You can also visit the website of the American Dental Association at www.ada.org to find out more.
We offer an initial complimentary cosmetic consultation. If your front teeth are a little crooked or if they have a gap, a new and practical alternative to braces is porcelain veneers or composite bonding. Both of these techniques can provide "instant orthodontics" for some patients. Come in and talk to Dr. McConnell about this exciting possibility.
We offer an initial complimentary cosmetic consultation to analyze your smile. Each person has a unique "perfect" smile, one that is proportional and flattering to his or her face. With Smile Analysis, we can show you what your best smile can look like.
Dr. McConnell will sit down with you and measure your teeth. He will determine whether your smile is in harmony with your face. Everybody's smile is unique to them, and with a few simple measurements or lab procedures, we can find the best smile that is uniquely you.
He can show you pictures of other people's smiles to give you a sense of how your smile can be enhanced. He can also provide you with a picture of what your smile can look like. You can take that picture home, talk about it with your friends and family, and make an informed and well-thought-out decision. In some instances, he can provide a "temporary" enhanced smile, one that you can "test drive" for a while to see if it's the smile you'd like to have permanently. That way, you can get used to your new look before you make a permanent commitment to a new smile.
