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…)

With preventive dentistry services like routine exams, cleanings, and patient hygiene education, Dr. Eick and dentists all across America help their patients preserve the health and beauty of their natural teeth. When these proactive measures aren’t enough to save those teeth, however, restorative dentistry becomes necessary in order to reestablish oral health, dental function, and aesthetic appeal. One of the ways that we help our Rocky River, OH patients reclaim the form and function of their smiles following tooth loss involves the use of dental implants and implant-retained dentures.
Comprehensive Tooth Replacement Solutions
In the past, men and women suffering from total tooth loss were offered limited options regarding replacement of their dentition. While traditional dentures and partials do offer sufficient bite strength and stability for some patients, many others discover that wearing these removable prosthetics leads to embarrassment, diminished facial contours, considerable discomfort, and difficulty when eating or speaking. With implant-retained dentures, these and other problems associated with removable dentures are no longer a concern. Your lifelike, customized replacement teeth are firmly anchored in place with biocompatible dental implants, each of which is secured within the bone of the jaw for unparalleled stability.
The first step to determining your candidacy for dental implants or implant-retained dentures is to schedule an appointment with Dr. Eick for your consultation. Our primary goal during this consultation is to give you the information and counsel you need to make an informed decision regarding your oral health. In addition to performing a thorough exam and providing you with your restorative options, Dr. Eick will happily answer any questions you may have about implants or your proposed procedure.
