Your smile can be your most valuable asset!  It can start a conversation, or close a deal!  A confident smile literally changes lives!

Powell & Tiller Dental Care now has the technology to digitally design your most beautiful smile in a way that only a handful of dentists around the world are trained and equipped to do!

Using the Power of technology to create beautiful smiles

While we are not new to creating stunning smiles, we are perfecting complete smile transformations with Digital Smile Design! DSD is a state-of-the-art system to create smiles in a way that dentists previously only dreamed of! It uses all of our digital technology: digital scans of your teeth, digital orthodontics, digital photography, digital design and milling of restorations. It can even create digital guidance for surgeries such as implants or esthetic gum changes to ensure that your end result is just what we planned.

Make  it your vision, not just our vision

Drs. Powell and Tiller will work with you to design a beautiful, natural, confident smile from the desired end result backward. In fact, if you have a friend or family member whose smile you love, ask them to be your smile donator!

What in the world is a smile donator?!

If you love someone's smile, and you know them well enough to ask, they can come into our office and have their smile digitally scanned and we can use 3D modeling to digitally size and scale it to your mouth!  It's a win/win!  You get the smile you know you love and they get the biggest smile compliment ever!

Then take your smile for a test drive

Once we design your smile to be just as you choose, we can even digitally print a “try on” before starting to get a sneak preview. Then we discuss the steps needed to get there.  Each design is unique to your needs and could involve just one or multiple procedures to get there.  Whether Invisalign, veneers, implants, gum changes or any combination of those could be involved, but that's for you to decide and know exactly what you would get from each step!

THE MOST OBVIOUS impact of orthodontic treatment is a straighter, more attractive smile. While it is true that we tend to perceive people with properly aligned teeth as happier and more successful, the benefits aren’t just superficial.

Healthier Digestion

We don’t give our teeth enough credit for the role they play in good digestion. Chewing is a very important part of the process. It doesn’t just chop the food into small enough pieces to fit down the esophagus, it mixes the food with saliva, which begins the chemical digestion process.

When we wolf down our food without much chewing — or when we chew with misaligned teeth that don’t do the job effectively — it forces our stomachs to work harder than they should. If you already have straight teeth, put them to good use by chewing each mouthful for longer. If you don’t, your digestive system will thank you for getting orthodontic treatment.

Better Breathing

Having poorly aligned teeth can make it difficult or even impossible to comfortably close your jaws when you aren’t moving them, which can lead to habitual mouth breathing. Mouth breathing has a number of negative effects, including dry mouth, bad breath, snoring, chronic fatigue, and brain fog. The effects are an even bigger problem for kids, sometimes going as far as changing the development of their facial bone structure.

Clearer Speech

Do you remember the lisp you had between losing your two front teeth and the adult ones growing in? Based on that, it shouldn’t be much of a surprise that our teeth are a crucial component to our ability to speak and enunciate clearly.

In order to make the right sounds, our lips and tongues have to maneuver around our teeth. When teeth are properly aligned, this is simple, but misaligned teeth can result in a lisp, slurring, or difficulty making certain sounds that require tongue-to-tooth contact, such as the “t,” “s,” and “ch” sounds. Orthodontic treatment can solve these problems by moving the teeth into their proper positions.

Better Oral Health

Straight teeth also help keep your teeth healthy.  Misaligned teeth can put unintended forces on areas of your teeth and lead to cracks, broken teeth, and receding gums.  And of course teeth that are lined up nicely are much easier to clean and don't harbor as much bacteria, so you are less likely to get gum disease and can even help eliminate active gum disease in people who have it.

Straight Teeth For A Better Life

Not only do straight teeth make it easier to speak, eat, and breathe properly, they’re also easier to clean! Maybe you’ve been avoiding orthodontic treatment because you’re happy with the way your smile looks, but the many benefits of straight teeth are worth considering.

Dr. Powell and Dr. Tiller are both Certified Invisalign Providers and have used Invisalign to improve the health of their patients since 2005!  Come in for a complimentary consult.  We can even digitally scan your teeth and show you a simulated outcome of your new smile!

Straight teeth lead to better oral health and better overall health!
