Your smile is the first impression that others have of you, so it makes sense that you would want it to be bright, white and healthy.

X-rays provide a unique view of the mouth that isn’t possible with a visual exam alone. When x-rays are taken, the teeth and bones absorb the majority of the ray, making them highly visible on film or on a screen.
