If you find yourself hiding your smile, covering your mouth while you talk, or if you’re the only person in every family photo that’s frowning, it might be time to make a change. A recent University of California Berkley study revealed that people who smile more are less likely to get divorced or experience depression, and are more likely to get hired or promoted. However, similar studies reveal that those whose smiles are unappealing would do better to hide their smiles as they are perceived as less intelligent and unhealthy. If you’re ready to achieve your full smile confidence and potential, Rocky River cosmetic dentist, Dr. William L. Eick, and his team can help. We offer a wide variety of cosmetic dentistry services to correct, conceal, or transform your smile.

Do the words natural, functional, or comfortable come to mind when you hear the word, “dentures?” Probably not. For years, dentures have been perceived as being bulky, making eating and speaking more difficult, and slipping and sliding uncomfortably. Possibly worst of all, dentures were obvious. You knew right away if someone was wearing them. Innovations in dentistry allow your Rocky River, OH dentist, Dr. William Eick, to create custom dental prosthetics to not just replace your teeth, but to restore your smile to its natural beauty. If you’re unhappy with your current dentures or are in need of dentures, call our office to schedule a denture consolation. (more…)

Your smile shows the world who you are and how you feel; in fact, studies show that your smile is among the very first things that others notice about you. If you are missing one or more teeth, however, you may feel less willing to show off your smile to family, friends, coworkers and new acquaintances. At the office of Dr. William Eick in Rocky River, OH, we restore incomplete smiles with a comprehensive menu of restorative dentistry services, including dental implants.
Are Dental Implants the Right Choice for Me?
Most individuals who have healthy gums and sufficient bone tissue in their jaws are able to receive replacement teeth in the form of dental implants. A consultation and assessment with Dr. Eick can help determine if you are a good candidate for this type of restorative procedure. When you visit our office, we’ll walk through the steps of dental implant placement so that you feel comfortable and informed from the very start.
The dental implants process is relatively simple. First, a sturdy titanium post will be placed in the jaw where you are missing a tooth. This post will serve as a secure pillar to which your brand new tooth will be affixed. The porcelain crown that will replace your missing tooth will be customized in color, shape and size to match your natural teeth for a flawless smile and optimal comfort. Even better still, you’ll be able to speak and eat normally again with a full set of teeth.
