Are You Satisfied With Your Smile?

92% of the U.S. population believe that an attractive smile is an important social asset. 74% think an unattractive smile could hurt their career. And nationwide data reveals that an astounding 52% of all Americans are dissatisfied with their smile. When it comes to your smile, Dr. Nishimura is dedicated to  your total and complete satisfaction.

A beautiful smile is important for many reasons. A perfect, healthy smile will make you feel more comfortable, allowing you to actually smile more often. As a result, your family, co-workers and friends will take notice. Have you ever thought about the types of procedures that can be utilized in order to transform your current smile? Some may be more convenient and less expensive than you may have thought. Others may be a little more time consuming but produce incredible, long-lasting results. This post is intended to touch on a few dental procedures that will literally redesign and enhance your smile.


– Cosmetic Bleaching: This is a go-to procedure for many people looking to quickly and inexpensively enhance their smile. There are many types of popular dental bleaching treatment methods but the most common are probably dental bleaching trays and in-office cosmetic whitening. If you’ve ever been concerned with the shade of your teeth, you’ve probably already tried whiting toothpastes, mouth washes and even those whitening strips. Although these may help lighten the color of your teeth, they will only brighten them a shade or two. With both the bleaching trays and in-office cosmetic whitening procedures, your smile can become dramatically whiter. Here at Aspen Dental, we use Zoom! Whitening-  a scientifically advanced system that’s fast, easy and extremely effective.  Zoom! Whitening is designed to whiten your smile up to 8 shades in a little over an hour while you relax in the comfort of our dental office.

-Veneers: Generally custom-built from porcelain, veneers are thin, semi-translucent facings secured to the fronts of teeth. Veneers are strong, stain-resistant, and look perfectly natural. They are used to hide broken, chipped, discolored, crooked, and misshapen teeth, and provide you with that beautiful, healthy smile you have always wanted.

-Implants: Dental implants replace teeth that are  missing or have been extracted. Implants are surgically attached to the jawbone and become a permanent component of your mouth. Unlike dentures, with implants you will no longer experience the shifting, moving, and moderate irritation. Dental implants look, feel, and function like your own natural teeth because they are made of a metal that is highly compatible with the jaw bone. As a result, the implant (a small post that protrudes from the gum) is able to fuse easily with the underlying bone. A highly experienced oral surgeon or periodontist recommended by our office will perform the surgical procedure for your implant. Our doctors will partner with your surgeon to follow your treatment to the restorative phase. They will then complete the implant procedure by attaching natural and functional tooth structures to the implant components, giving you once again a confident and comfortable smile.


We are committed to helping you achieve the best possible dental results in a comfortable and friendly environment. You should have a comprehensive dental and periodontal examination regularly, which includes a thorough examination of your teeth and gums. We use the findings from our examination to formulate a complete diagnosis and comprehensive treatment plan for you.
