We have all seen examples of less-than-ideal dentistry. It appears as dark lines, odd shapes, and unnatural colors. As a result, many people think their new dentistry might look this way as well. This is a justifiable concern, as it very well could. Not all dentists are skilled at creating dentistry which is indiscernible to the naked eye. Lesser quality dentistry is noticed because it looks unnatural. But high quality cosmetic dentistry simply gives a beautiful natural smile.
A beautiful smile makes us want to smile back. So what are the characteristics which make great smiles so appealing? Dr. Raymond is a life-long student of the little details found in natural teeth. He brings this understanding to his work by artfully mimicking what nature has so beautifully created. He designs highly personalized, naturally beautiful smiles every week – smiles that grab attention for the right reasons!
We believe safety and comfort should be the “non-negotiable” expectation of every person entering our practice. It is no secret that many people associate fear with dentistry.
Whether this fear originates from previous experiences or other sources, we make it a priority to understand it. We go out of our way to create a sense of partnership with each patient. This gives each person the opportunity to feel “in control”, and to successfully manage dental fear in a healthy fashion.
Our unique philosophy additionally maintains physical comfort, while acknowledging each person’s emotional needs. Patients with a previous history of fear associated with dentistry routinely report that they have developed strength and confidence, and have conquered their fear of going to the dentist.
The major focus for some dentists is to address current problems without spending very much time investigating why the problems are occurring. That approach results in treatment plans which take care of the moment but do not anticipate future problems. You have constant re-repairs, wasted time, and wasted money.
We believe it is imperative to uncover the reasons why an individual is having problems so that issues can be successfully addressed the first time. Our careful planning process includes flexibility with regard to the timing. Consequently, most patients can “stage” or “phase” treatment without compromising on the quality of the outcome.
Dr. Raymond prefers to work carefully and achieve a planned outcome rather than to rush or to end up with surprises. That gives you dentistry that pays for itself over time with comfort, beauty, and satisfaction.
We believe that people will make the best decisions for themselves when given the chance to do so. We focus on creating opportunities for our patients to actively participate in learning about their options and planning their own dental health. Many dental options are available, and all have advantages and disadvantages. Dr. Raymond will be happy to work with you towards whatever your dental goals are.
