Chapter Four: A Visual Side to the Smile | New York, NY

Everyone wants to have a smile that can light up a room. Y’know, one of those Hollywood smiles we see every day on our favorite tv shows and movies – a bright, gleaming white set of perfect pearly whites. The great thing is, with today’s dental technology, you can have that smile with the help of your dentist. Need it brighter? There are whitening treatments. Need some straightening? There are braces, or if necessary, dental implants that can help out. All you need is a visit to your favorite smile doctor.

Now when it comes to the various method used to repair your flawed grin, there are plenty to choose from and you and your dentist will decide together the best plan of attack. Here is a quick rundown of what you can expect. Of course, every patient is different, so these options may vary:

Missing teeth. A dental implant with veneers will likely be recommended.

Worn teeth. This will either entail some bonding or veneers in affected areas.

Gummy smile. If you have excessive gums showing when you smile, you may need a smile lift.

Discoloration. Whitening will be the first option but may need bonding or veneers.

Tooth erosion. Grinding may cause your teeth to wear. Veneers and/or crowns will fix that.

Old restorations. Old restorations may need to be re-sculpted to give your smile a renewed look.

Old bonding and cavities. You would be surprised by how much your smile can change by changing the color and shape of your teeth.

Crowding. Braces or a crown/bridge combination will make your smile more aesthetically pleasing.

Missing teeth. Fill in any gaps with bridges and veneers.

Chapter Three: The Power of the Smile | New York, NY

When you meet someone, what is the first thing you notice about them? Is it their eyes? Chances are, you are going to say their smile. Not only is it the most obvious feature of the face, but it is the most universally studied of all the facial expressions. Not only because they are beautiful, but because smile mean so much more than a happy thought. Smiles can tell someone about their health and can even lead to more success than you can imagine. It’s true – your smile is the window to your soul.

Smiles are like snowflakes. You have a smile that is unmatched by any other. It is distinct and is likely the feature that is remembered by others in networking situations. A great smile can boost your confidence and make you seem more intelligent, successful – someone that you want to know.

When you have flaws in your smile, it can affect your overall demeanor and health. As we age, our skin begins to sag and our bones begin to weaken. This will inevitably change the way our smile appears and can make us look sad when we don’t feel that way. This is where cosmetic dentistry comes into play.

Cosmetic dentistry has grown leaps and bounds from your grandparents’ dentistry. Nowadays, your dental experience is less invasive, less time-consuming and even sometime pain-free. Through the use of state-of-the-art technology, Dr. Rosenthal has revolutionized the smile. It is no longer an issue that concerns even the most timid dental patients; cosmetic dentistry can give someone their confidence and zest for life.

Chapter Two: Myths, Deceptions and Misconceptions | New York, NY

If you ask anyone if they enjoy going to the dentist, chances are the answer is going to be an astounding no. Their reasons can vary from fear of the unknown to the pain one is sure to feel due to poor dental health. In fact, dental anxiety is an actual diagnosed condition. Unfortunately, many of these fears lie within deeply held and unhealthy beliefs about oral health. In the book, Open Wider, Dr. Larry Rosenthal addresses and uproots these issues head on:

Dental visits are unpleasant. Have you been to a dental office lately? Big-screen TVs and aromatherapy are just a couple of the amenities there for you to relax and enjoy your dental experience.

Dental treatment is painful. Materials and bonding techniques are so advanced, patients are less aware that procedures are happening at all.

Teeth aren’t important features. Your teeth are not only responsible for your bite, but support the lower third of your face, affecting your overall appearance. You need to take care of all of your teeth.

Dental restorations last forever. Nothing lasts forever, and the better you care for them, the longer they’ll last.

Dentists aren’t doctors. DDS stands for Doctor of Dental Surgery. They aren’t scary like the movies say – they’re just normal people like you and me.

Dental procedures take a long time. With today’s dental advancements, basic dental procedures can be done as quickly as a pedicure or haircut.

Bad breath is diet-based. There are a few reasons you may have bad breath. If it becomes a common occurrence, it could be a health issue, like acid reflux or medication you are taking.

Chapter One: The Renaissance of Dentistry | New York, NY

TMZ recently caught up with actor Josh Duhamel at LAX and asked him if he had always wanted to be an actor. Surprisingly, the answer was no. In fact, he wanted to become a dentist. When asked why that was the goal, he said it was because he was very creatively-inclined, and his brother was a dentist. He thought he could use his artistic talents to create beautiful smiles, while keeping his mom proud her son was a doctor. He understood that dentistry isn’t solely based on medicine. Unfortunately, his grades weren’t all that great and eventually dropped out of Minot State University before entering dental school. The rest is history.

Dr. Rosenthal had the same ideas upon entering dental school, only to be hit with the technical curriculum of anatomy, labs and preclinical work. It wasn’t anything he expected dental college to be and got frustrated with the way the dentistry industry was. They failed to recognize that dentistry is a visual art. “It is an art informed by science and technology. It is an art that drives science and technology.”

Fast forward 13 years, and Dr. Rosenthal has revolutionized the way dentistry is taught and received. Think of it as a renaissance of sorts – a revival for dentistry and the beauty that can be created by these dental advancements.

Open Wider is a book that celebrates the world of dentistry and the beauty that is created within a patient’s mouth. You’ll find yourself becoming optimistic for your next dental visit and overall health going forward. Give your lifestyle the boost it’s been looking for and get yourself a copy of Open Wider today!
