Dentist in Tokai
Do you like to visit your dentist? Many people put off a visit to their dentist because of childhood memories of pain and suffering. If you are one of these folks, you are missing out on some of the latest, exciting developments on the forefront of dentistry.
Think of the effect it has on you when you meet someone with a bright and confident smile. Then think of what it would feel like to be that person who has such a smile, such an easy confidence, knowing that you can smile openly and speak easily, without ever having to wonder if your listeners were thinking critical thoughts about what your mouth looked like.
Smile Design, Implantology, Oral Surgery and Endodontics are cutting-edge procedures in modern Cosmetic Dentistry. On the forefront of this modern technology is “The Cosmetic Dental Studios”, headed by Dr A Khan. Branches are found in Westlake/Constantia, Plumstead and Gardens.
With more than a decade of experience, Dr Khan has completed in excess of 100 smile design cases varying from four units to full mouth rehabilitations and gingival contouring or crown lengthening. This means that whatever your specific situation and requirements might be, Dr. Khan has done something similar before and has also established a wide-spread reputation for pain-free work.
Dr. Khan was mentored by arguably the best in the business such as world famous cosmetic dentist Larry Rosenthal (dentist to the stars including Catherine Zeta Jones and Michael Douglas). You have perhaps seen some of the TV reality shows such as “Extreme Make-Over”, in which the seemingly impossible was achieved in turning people’s lives around completely, for the better. Dr. Khan has studied with the dentists who were responsible for those improvements. If such masters of the make-over can achieve these incredible changes, imagine how your life could be enriched! Times may be hard, but you know that the best investment you can make, is an investment you can make in yourself. We live in a world in which others judge us by our appearance. Your self confidence and social life are directly influenced by the way in which you present yourself physically to the world.
