If you think twice about flashing your pearly whites, rest assured that you are not alone. Scientists estimate that nearly 76% of Americans are afraid to smile, most of whom feel embarrassed by tooth alignment, coloring, or other aesthetics.

Most patients are shocked to learn that up to 5% of their body weight is composed of minerals like calcium, phosphorous, and potassium (i).
