New Year, New Smile!

New Year, New Smile!

New Year’s Resolutions are a great way to identify a goal that will better your life. They come in many forms, ranging from something as simple as reading a book to as extreme as finishing an ultra marathon. At McKenzie Family Dentistry we often see a popular resolution in dentistry: New Year, New Smile. But how do you achieve this goal? Where do you start?

All smiles are different! What might make one person’s teeth beautiful might not work for somebody else. With constant developments in dental and orthodontic technology, there is a solution for everyone to make a smile beautiful!

Here are some things McKenzie Family Dentistry can do to help you achieve your New Year’s Resolution for an even more beautiful smile!

Cosmetic Dentistry

Cosmetic Dentistry is an extremely popular answer to the New Year, New Smile Resolution. There is a cosmetic solution to making every smile reach its full potential!

Cosmetic dentistry covers a multitude of treatments including dentures, implants, crowns, and fillings—the list goes on and on. There are so many cosmetic dental treatments we offer; there’s no way we can go into detail about them here! However, we wanted to highlight a very popular cosmetic treatment here that is an excellent solution to the New Year, New Smile Resolution; that’s the veneer.


Whitening is technically a form of cosmetic dentistry, however, we wanted to highlight it in its own category because it is such a great solution to making smiles look amazing!

If you think your smile looks slightly yellow, regardless of how much whitening toothpaste you use, your teeth could be stained. Stained teeth are one of the most common cosmetic cases we see! Everyone loves food and drinks; however, some can discolor the surface of your teeth with regular exposure. For example, some popular food items that will stain your smile are buffalo sauce, marinara, coffee, dark teas, and red wine. Whitening treatment is an easy fix to this problem, so you don’t have to avoid the foods or drinks you love!


Dental implants are a great solution for tooth loss that consists of an artificial tooth root that creates a permanent and strong foundation for a replacement tooth. Dental implants are a great option if you have missing teeth but cannot or do not want to get dentures, bridges, or crowns.

In addition to giving you a beautiful smile, dental implants will support your speech, comfort, and chewing abilities all while keeping up with your normal oral care routine. You can brush, floss, eat, and drink as you normally would with dental implants.

If you think dental implants could be a good option for you, reach out to Dr. McKenzie to talk about options!

Invisalign® Treatment

Invisalign is an affordable, convenient, and easy way to straighten most smiles! This flexible alternative to braces is extremely popular with patients of all ages due to its removability and lack of brackets and wires. Every Invisalign® tray our office creates is 100% unique to that patient and explicitly designed for their smile.

The Invisalign® straightening system is simple. All you have to do is wear your treatment as prescribed by us and come and pick up your next set of trays when our team notifies you. That’s it! Wear your treatment, come in for brief check-ups every few months, and you’ll have the smile you’ve always wanted before you know it!
