Are You Happy With Your Smile?
We all know that a beautiful and healthy smile makes us more attractive. Did you know that smiling can also help you feel better? According to Dr. Mark Stibich, smiling helps reduce your stress level, boosts your immune system, releases endorphins, our body’s natural pain killers and lowers blood pressure. Smiling helps improve our mood and keeps us from looking tired, overwhelmed, and worn down.
A smiling person brings happiness with them and helps others feel better. Dr. Robin Smith says a smile is so powerful and contagious your life may change for the better once you start smiling.

Lorie after Porcelain Veneers by McCarl Dental Group
Lorie did not like to smile for the camera
Our dental patient Lorie chose porcelain veneers to improve her smile. She said, “My teeth were crowded and a little discolored and considered myself unphotogenic. A relaxed confident smile is important as a public speaker and financial consultant. After reviewing options with Dr. McCarl and serious consideration, I chose porcelain veneers to give me a smile consistent with my professional image. I am very happy with my veneers and my new smile and will never again shy away from a camera!”
Porcelain veneers improve your teeth’s appearance by making them look straighter, and also whiter; creating a natural-looking and beautiful smile in just two visits. Veneers are more than cosmetic, they can improve the health, form and function of the mouth. Crooked teeth can be difficult to clean and are more prone to tooth decay and gum disease.
Porcelain veneers are an excellent solution for a variety of conditions including:
• crooked teeth
• worn or chipped teeth
• stained or discolored teeth
• teeth that are too small or too large
Veneers are more durable and effective than bonding, and are a more conservative procedure than crowns.
Thin veneers (also called no-preparation veneers), are also a great option for a natural-looking, beautiful smile. Thin, no prep veneers are ideal for teeth that are worn down, small or unevenly shaped and teeth that have spaces between them. These veneers can also be an excellent solution for replacing old cosmetic bonding.
A dentist experienced in placing thin veneers can create a beautiful smile with NO drilling, No needles and No Novacain!
Laszlo after Thin No Preparation Veneers by McCarl Dental Group
Laszlo had worn down, chipped teeth that had darkened over the years
Like most people, Laszlo’s teeth had darkened with age. His bite was such that normal wear and chipping on his front teeth were accelerated. He was told by several other dentists that that same bite prevented him from restoring his teeth with veneers. Although it presented a challenge, we were able to lighten and lengthen his teeth with thin, minimal preparation veneers. We lightly smoothed the surfaces of his teeth and took impressions. There was no need for Novacain or temporary crowns. A few weeks later his thin veneers were placed. Before, his smile barely showed the tips of dark, chipped and worn front teeth. Now he beams with a big, bright, youthful smile.
Laszlo said, “I am a recent recipient of a beautiful set of thin veneers done by Dr. McCarl, fulfilling a long dream of mine to have a full smile showing a nice set of teeth. Dr. McCarl’s artistry and vision to know the process to create that look is amazing! Having a difficult under bite I had been told by other doctors that it would be impossible and yet, Dr. McCarl assured me that this WAS possible and with very positive results. His wonderful disposition and total understanding of the process gave me a look and smile that I thought was only a dream. Well, he made this dream come true and I can’t believe after all these years I am comfortable in pictures and feel confident enough to smile. I feel very fortunate to have found this practice and have Dr. McCarl as my dentist. Smiling is now a pleasure!”
