It’s finally here! You may or may not know this, but I am very proud and excited to announce that I have been working on a book project with a publisher to co-author a book. It is called: “A Cup Of Coffee With 10 Of The Top Cosmetic Dentists In The United States” Valuable insights you should know before you have cosmetic dental work done.

The book itself offers useful and relevant information to the public about cosmetic dentistry and I’m very proud to have been asked to share my insights on the topic. You can help. We are aiming at getting this to Amazon best-seller status. This will help to raise a significant amount of money for Kiwanis. The book will officially tomorrow.

What Does a Dental Facelift Entail?

Our previous blog post explained how your teeth can wear down over time and make your face appear older than you really are. Luckily, a Dental Facelift performed by Dr. Robin Rutherford can often restore your teeth and revitalize your facial appearance without the need for plastic surgery. This noninvasive procedure can produce natural-looking results and can often be completed in as few as two to four office visits. To begin the Dental Facelift process, Dr. Rutherford will first study the shape of your face, skin tone, lips, teeth, and other important physical characteristics before making a personalized treatment plan. Then, depending on your smile needs, he may use dental implants to replace missing teeth or position porcelain veneers and/or dental crowns over your existing teeth to restore their youthful shape. Porcelain veneers can also easily cover broken, chipped, and yellow teeth. The length, shape, and color of your new teeth can help create a rejuvenated look, ultimately making your face appear smoother and less wrinkled. If you are looking for a way to turn back the clock without surgery, a Dental Facelift may be the answer! For more information about this innovative treatment, or to schedule an appointment with Dr….

Why You Should Consider Getting a Dental Facelift

Have you noticed a change in your smile over the years? With age, your teeth can wear down and become shorter, especially if you grind your teeth. Shorter teeth may cause your face to appear wrinkled or collapsed since there is less space between your nose and chin. Stained, cracked, and chipped teeth, as well as dark fillings, can also add unnecessary years to your appearance. If any of these symptoms are familiar, you may be a good candidate for a Dental Facelift procedure offered at our practice. Performed by our experienced dentist, Dr. Robin Rutherford, the treatment can help rejuvenate your face without surgery or injectable fillers. Additionally, a Dental Facelift has many aesthetic benefits, including the ability to reduce fine lines and wrinkles, create a stronger jawline, and improve the appearance of your lips and cheeks. Keep an eye on our blog to see the next part in our series, where we will share the different procedures that may be used for a Dental Facelift. Or, if you would like to schedule an appointment with Dr. Rutherford, please feel free to contact our office today.  

Snoring Isn’t Normal


Despite how commonly it occurs, you may be surprised to know that snoring isn’t actually considered normal. What I mean by this is that snoring isn’t simply something people do or don’t do, and regardless of whether or not you snore, all is well. In fact, snoring is often caused by one or more outside factors, some of which can potentially be harmful and may lead to more serious health concerns like sleep apnea. So, contrary to popular belief, snoring is not a condition that’s considered "normal." The good news is, there are viable snoring treatment options designed to reduce snoring and help yourself or a loved one get a healthier night’s sleep each night. As an experienced general and cosmetic dentist, I can construct a customized oral appliance to fit comfortably and securely in your mouth while you sleep. When worn properly, these appliances have proven to successfully diminish the occurrence of snoring so that you and your loved ones can sleep peacefully throughout the night.

I can personally attest to how a bad smile can shape your whole being. As I was growing up, my two front teeth developed stains due to loss of enamel from antibiotics I had taken when I was younger. I remember being in elementary school and children asking me what was wrong with my teeth, or did I ever brush them. I learned quickly to smile in a way that hid my upper teeth. Read the PDF
