American writer and philosopher Max Eastman once said that “A smile is the universal welcome.” It can be difficult, though, to welcome anyone with a smile if you’re self-conscious about the condition of your teeth. At Drake & Voto Family and Cosmetic Dentistry in Owasso, OK, Dr. Gene Drake and Dr. Jayson Voto can help you achieve a smile you’re proud to show off with revolutionary cosmetic dentistry solutions like porcelain veneers.
Why Choose Porcelain Veneers?
Porcelain veneers are ultra-thin, long-lasting layers of dental porcelain that are custom-fitted to the front surfaces of your teeth. They are incredibly durable and stain-resistant, giving you the freedom to smile confidently. Some of the most common dental imperfections corrected with porcelain veneers include the following:
- Yellowing and discoloration resistant to professional teeth whitening treatments
- Misalignment of teeth visible when you smile
- Gaps between front teeth
- Teeth that are too small or too large in relation to surrounding teeth
- Misshapen teeth
- Cracks and chips
When Dr. Drake and Dr. Voto place your customized porcelain veneers – a process that typically involves just two office visits – the result is a whiter, straighter, more uniform smile that still looks and feels natural.
Revitalize Your Smile with Porcelain Veneers
If you’ve spent years dissatisfied with your smile, it’s time to take the first step toward improved oral health and a more aesthetically pleasing overall appearance. Contact us at our Owasso, OK office today to see how Dr. Drake and Dr. Voto can help you smile with confidence with the help of porcelain veneers.

Are you new to Owasso and looking for a permanent dental office? Choosing a new dentist can be difficult without a direct recommendation from a friend or family member. However, it can help to see actual work in something like smile gallery.
If you visit the smile gallery on our website, you’ll see a collection of photos displaying the handiwork of Dr. Gene Drake and Dr. Jayson Voto. In these examples, you’ll see before and after photos showing you what’s possible with cosmetic services like teeth whitening, cosmetic bonding, porcelain veneers, and porcelain crowns.
These cosmetic services can have a dramatic effect by transforming teeth that are stained, cracked, chipped, crowded, or unevenly spaced. What’s more, these services can be done quickly. In-office whitening takes a single appointment to complete while take-home whitening can yield results in just a few days. Cosmetic bonding is another service that only takes one appointment, while porcelain veneers and crowns can take two visits.

Are misaligned teeth keeping you from feeling confident about your smile? With the orthodontic options Dr. Gene Drake and Dr. Jayson Voto offer, young patients and even adults can look forward to achieving a straighter, healthier smile.
Our Owasso dental office offer’s conventional braces and Invisalign clear braces. Why two options? Because not every patient needs the same level of orthodontic care. Conventional braces will help a patient with significant misalignment, while Invisalign is better suited for small, cosmetic changes.
What’s more, Invisalign is an appealing choice for adults concerned about maintaining a professional appearance. Instead of using brackets and wires, Invisalign uses a series of clear aligners. Patients will wear each aligner for about two weeks before moving on to the next, with each one moving teeth closer to their ideal position. Added to this, Invisalign patients can take their aligners out to eat, brush, and floss—something you just can’t do with conventional braces.
But is Invisalign right for you, or do you need conventional braces?
At Drake & Voto Family and Cosmetic Dentistry, our Owasso dental team would be happy to help you answer that question. Through a simple consultation appointment, Dr. Drake and Dr. Voto can learn about your needs, your medical history, and your goals going forward. Then, based on what they learn by looking at your smile and talking to you, they can make a personalized recommendation.
Do you need orthodontic help? Call Drake & Voto Family and Cosmetic Dentistry today to reserve an appointment. We serve patients from Owasso, Claremore, Sperry, Collinsville, Tulsa, Skiatook, and beyond.
Comments Off on Invisalign and Conventional Braces: Two Options for a Straighter Smile
When you think of going to see a dentist, it’s because you need a checkup or you need some other kind of service. You don’t typically think of how your dentist might be able to help you beat signs of aging or improve your eyelashes. But at Drake & Voto Family and Cosmetic Dentistry, we offer several of today’s most popular aesthetic services, including:
With one or more of these services, we can help you transform how you look and improve your confidence. Here’s how each works.
Botox was made to ease the appearance of lines and wrinkles located around the eyes and brow. When injected, it prevents muscle contractions, resulting in a younger appearance for months at a time. How long does Botox last? A single treatment will provide excellent results for as long as four months. What’s more, Botox can also treat the symptoms of TMJ dysfunction.
Juvéderm targets a different set of wrinkles, specifically the ones around the mouth and nose. What’s more, instead of preventing muscle contractions, Juvéderm actually fills wrinkles, volumizing your appearance in the process. Patients who choose Juvéderm can look forward to seeing amazing results for as long as a year.
For some patients, it’s not wrinkles they want to treat, it’s their eyelashes. Latisse is the only FDA-approved prescription for lash-growth. How effective is it? More than 2.5 million bottles have been sold since it was introduced. The solution is applied to the top of lashes in the evening, and within weeks you can look forward to having fuller, darker lashes.
Do you want to learn more about any of these aesthetic services? Call Drake & Voto Family and Cosmetic Dentistry with your questions or to schedule an appointment.
