A little cosmetic dentistry can go a long way in helping your smile.

Face it. Most people like to smile and interact with other people who smile.

Whether you have naturally crooked teeth, teeth which have been discolored over the years, or simple chips, we can help bring back your smile with a helping of cosmetic dentistry.

For crooked teeth, braces or aligners can provide you the confidence to smile without being self-conscious. Moreover, straightening one’s teeth provides functional benefits to your chewing, and the overall health of your gums and mouth.

I wish I had had braces when I was a teenager. They would have helped to prevent many of the dental issues I face today. But my parents gave me the option, rather than insisting I have the braces installed. As a 14-year-old I didn’t know any better and chickened out because I thought the pain would be intolerable.

The cost for the dental work due to my poor decision for subsequent dental work has been enormous and has caused me a great deal of financial pain … which has been much worse than the minor discomfort associated with the braces process. Clear aligners are also an option for certain people.

Additionally, when I was a young lad my father was horsing around with me and I chipped a front tooth which has always bothered me. Whether it was fixed with a veneer or crown, that tooth could have been repaired in a heartbeat and eliminated much of my self-consciousness. And it would have been far easier to eat corn on the cob or a rack of ribs.

I wish Carson & Acasio had been my dentist decades ago as my teeth and mouth would be much happier today. But there is no such thing as could have, would have, or should have. It is what it is.
