My Blog PostsAre Smiles Contagious?

Of course, being a dentist, I was thrilled with the idea! It made me think about how a beautiful smile can impact a person's confidence,mood, and anyone they meet.

About a year ago, a woman came into my office with a whole host of problems with her mouth. As you can tell by the first photo, her smile was in trouble, not just cosmetically, but structurally. Implants and cosmetic crowns were used to repair the damage cause be gum disease and tooth decay, and

with time, we were able to rehabilitate her mouth into a healthy amazing smile. It was interesting to me to see how the change in her smile increased her self-confidence! She seems to be happier, and she doesn't cover her mouth when she laughs anymore.As far as the results from the school science project, my daughter and her friend discovered that smiles ARE contagious. When they would smile at someone else, most of the time, they would get a smile back.

Dr. Robison gave me the smile I have always dreamed of about 2 years ago. I never realized how self-conscious I was about it. I would cover my mouth when I smiled, and never smile with my teeth showing for pictures. Now I get complimented on my smile at least once a week. Thanks so much Dr. Robison!

With regards to the image, I would just like to ask if in the first image, it is a dental crown? It seems different to me. Your response will be appreciated. Thanks much! :)
