If you’re unhappy with the appearance of your smile, you might be considering a smile makeover. If you’re not decided about whether you want one or not, you should take into account the many potential benefits of a smile makeover.
Like Your Smile
Only you know how unhappy your smile makes you. But for many people who get smile makeovers, it’s a daily drain to look in the mirror and see the appearance of their smile.
But you don’t have to just keep living with your unattractive smile. A skilled cosmetic dentist can work with you to design a new smile that you will enjoy. Whether you’re trying to restore your youthful smile or achieve the smile of your dreams, we can achieve a smile that you’ll look forward to seeing in the mirror.
Happier Days Are Here Again
And having a better smile won’t just make you happier about your smile, it can make you happier overall.
When you are happy with your smile, you’re going to smile more. And, guess what, smiling makes you happier. So the more you smile, the happier you’ll be, and the happier you are, the more you’ll smile. You’ll be able to enjoy all social activities more, too. No longer will you be trying to suppress your smile, you’ll just be able to relax and enjoy being out with friends, family, or a beloved.
Your oral health is closely linked to your overall health. And often unattractive smiles are also unhealthy smiles. If you have decayed or infected teeth, gum disease, or other oral health problems, you may be at elevated risk for many serious health conditions, from heart disease to dementia.
And having an unhealthy bite can also contribute to symptoms that can sometimes be hard to track down or treat, such as jaw pain and headaches. Restoring your smile can eliminate these symptoms, too.
Enjoy Food More
As we noted above, unattractive smiles are often unhealthy smiles, and this can interfere with your ability to eat foods. Crooked teeth can make it harder to chew, and sensitive or damaged teeth can make chewing unpleasant. If food gets stuck in your teeth and gums, it can be painful and unpleasant.
But with your new smile, you’ll be able to comfortably and easily eat a full range of foods again. You’ll love getting to enjoy all your old favorites again. And we really mean enjoy–poor oral health can literally leave a bad taste in your mouth, but when your smile is healthy you can taste foods as they’re meant to taste.
Denture wearers can have an especially hard time enjoying food. But with new implant dentures, you’ll find that you can eat as well as you did with natural teeth.
Find a New Job
This is, of course, something we can’t guarantee. But we can say that your smile can make a dramatic difference in your chances of getting a new job or getting a promotion at your current job. An attractive smile makes you look more successful and competent–research shows that straighter teeth and whiter teeth definitely have an impact on hiring decisions.
But perhaps the most important change will be inside you–you’ll feel more comfortable and more confident during interviews–and that will definitely improve your chances.
Meet a New Love
Again, this is something we can’t guarantee. But we can say that an attractive smile is the most sought-after feature in a potential date.
And your newfound confidence definitely won’t hurt your chances of finding a new romantic attachment, either!
