Katherine Heigl Struggles with Crooked Teeth - Tukwila, WA

January 13th, 2009

Everyone struggles with little imperfections. Making stained teeth sparkling white and chipped teeth smooth is part of what I do as a dentist. The sense of renewed self confidence that comes to my patients after having some sort of reconstructive work is what makes my job worthwhile.

Consider Katherine Heigl, award winning actress, and considered by many the Grace Kelly of our day. She describes struggling with crooked teeth her whole life until finally there came a point when she said "enough is enough!" She decided to do something to straighten her teeth.

I think you will enjoy this clip. Please feel free to leave comments, tell me what you think! Have you ever struggled with this same problem? Have you felt the relief of smiling to reveal a straight, bright smile after hiding crooked ones for so long? Contact us so we can hear your story, or help you create a new beautiful smile and a story of your own!

Why Is It So Important to Have Straight Teeth? - Southcenter Dental

December 29th, 2008

Some people wonder why we work so hard to restore our patients' teeth with CEREC and other technologies. Of course it’s nice to have a smile full of evenly aligned teeth, but straight and even teeth also lead to better oral hygiene, increasing your chances of keeping your own natural teeth for a lifetime.

Straight teeth are less prone to decay, because they collect less plaque – the sticky colorless substance that forms on our teeth and leads to tooth decay; and they are easier to keep clean!

If you’re wondering whether your teeth might cause problems because they are chipped or out of alignment, give us a call at 206.973.8211 to set up a consultation. Dr. Baruffi can help you decide whether or not you will benefit from treatment.
