According to the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, almost $3 billion a year is spent on dental makeover procedures like whitening and veneers. “We’re so much more of a media savvy society,” asserts Dr. Kosdon, “Every actor and actress has had cosmetic dental work done. Everyone wants that ‘celebrity smile.’ People want to stay young and look young.”
While people often want a “celebrity smile”, Kosdon says the best-looking smile will be one that fits your facial features and bone structure.

When it comes to teeth whitening– what’s the difference between the OTC products like the strips and the DDS version?
Because of the public’s growing desire to have a brighter, white smile, there has been a boom in new OTC whitening products in the last few years. Products like Go Smile and Celebrity Sexy Teeth Whitener have made teeth whitening affordable for most. Some of these OTC products allow you the flexibility to target specific teeth and customize your whitening. Advances to Crest White Strips have made this popular product much more effective. Still, going to see your dentist and asking for either Zoom! or BriteSmile is an easy way to jump start the whitening process for those of us who like immediate gratification. Products like Zoom II whitening can get your teeth up to 8 shades whiter in about an hour. For a quick overview, you can visit

What about orthodontics? what’s new there and how hard/long/pricy is it? Invisible braces? Invisalign?
Invisalign is easily one of the most exciting advances in orthodontics. This is a procedure to straighten your teeth and get a stunning smile without anyone really knowing you are going through treatment! While not everyone is a candidate for Invisalign, adults and kids alike now can have a perfect smile without wearing braces. Besides not having ugly metal attached to your teeth, this procedure is painless and often time cost less than traditional braces. Generally treatment time can be anywhere from 6 months to 1 and half years, depending on your specific needs and goals. Invisalign is the best way to transform without interfering with your day-to-day life!
What can people expect and how can it help them in terms of their own self -image?
I have personally witnessed the transformation that happens in the lives of my patients when they just fix their smiles. I’ve watched their confidence level go through the roof!! People have gone on to get better jobs, take better care of themselves, and even in a few cases get married. All of my patients tell me how much their lives have changed once I have done a smile makeover for them.
What about relationship issues?
I really think people are happier when they have a beautiful smile. They laugh and smile more, which helps them in all aspects of life. When my patients ask for a sexy smile, they really mean that they want to be kissed. Nobody wants to kiss someone with chipped, short, crooked, stained teeth..
Do veneers make a difference?

Yes, veneers in particular are crafted from tooth-colored, high-tech materials that portray a natural, sexy, bright kissable smile.

Would a great smile (straight teeth, white teeth, good dental hygiene) make a difference with finding and/or keeping a partner?
Absolutely! It all starts with a kiss, after all!
When do people make these changes when it comes to relationships? During the relationship? As it starts or after it’s over and they want to change everything?
More often they come to me after a relationship has broken up and they’re back in the dating game again and terribly insecure. The truth is they might have saved the relationship if they had come sooner. My own theory is that some relationships break up because the partners start taking each other for granted – a smile makeover is a great gift for your partner that renews the passion!


What about in the workplace?
Right now I’m hearing my clients say they need the confidence they get from a great smile as an edge for holding onto their jobs in a tough economy – or, if they are unemployed, it’s essential to make them stand out in an interview!
They realize that a job applicant with an attractive smile is more likely to get hired than someone who’s in need of a smile makeover
.
In addition, smiles reduce stress on and off the job, while frowns increase stress – the physical explanation is that it takes only 17 muscles to smile and 43 to frown.
Does this make a difference? How so? Does it make one look younger, more vibrant, more on their game?
All of the above. If you are at all ambitious about your career, you don’t want anything distracting from a winning image. Stained or crooked teeth signal that you are not serious about making the best impression.
Is it affordable? How long does it take? how long does it last?
There are so many choices today that it should fit into everyone’s budget.
Some procedures like Invisalign can take weeks to months to complete the straightening process, while whitening with Zoom! Takes about an hour! Like any whitening procedure, the results can vary and the procedure will last longer for someone who does not smoke or drink red wine, coffee or tea.

Any myths you want to dispel about dentistry?
I’d like to debunk the whole idea that going to the dentist is painful. That was our parent’s generation. Now we have new techniques and going to the dentist can be something you look forward to and not a bad experience. My office has massages for our patients and we have satellite TVs in every room. Our chairs massage you as you sit in them. So people love to come into my place.

Dr. Kosdon is at the forefront of a new breed of visionary dentists dedicated to delivering the most advanced knowledge and treatments in an atmosphere designed to put patients in a calm and stress-free mood. Within his state-of-the-art office guests not only receive the highest quality dental care, they’re treated to a variety of five-star services, from warm towels to massage therapy, from a fully-stocked beverage bar to flat screen TVs.
Going beyond the personal amenities to cutting edge technology, Dr. Kosdon has kept up with the most innovative treatments and techniques available including The Wand, which is a revolutionary new computer-controlled local anesthesia injection system that can provide a more comfortable and effective anesthetic delivery. Regardless if you have fear of needles or injections or not, The Wand allows a more predictably comfortable injection, especially in the more sensitive areas such as the palate or front of the mouth.
Kosdon’s practice also employs lasers to remove cavities and for gum recontouring, especially if someone has a gummy smile. What’s nice about the laser, many times anesthetic is not even needed and there is no annoying sound or vibration from a drill.
The practice reflects Dr. Kosdon’s passion for providing innovative oral care that exceeds patients’ expectations. After receiving his VIP treatment, people may actually look forward to their next dental appointment.
“When you’re working on someone who is relaxed, the treatments go much more smoothly, the staff performs more fluidly in a tranquil environment and the patient is happier in the end,” says Dr. Kosdon.
And while research indicates a winning smile makes you appear “more intelligent, interesting, successful and wealthy,” an overall healthy mouth is important for more than simply psychological reasons.
“When you have healthy teeth and gums, it helps balance your entire immune and hormonal systems because bacteria in your mouth affects other parts of your body,” Kosdon explains. “In fact, people with gum disease have higher incidences of heart disease and diabetes.”.
His mission is to spread the gospel of preventative care. By making patients as comfortable and relaxed as possible, Kosdon believes that they will see a dentist more regularly and serious problems can be averted. Now, through the spa amenities at the Oaks Center, he is succeeding in changing perceptions and behavior about dentistry.
