Whether you are on a first date or a job interview or are delivering a sales presentation, your smile makes a big impression on everyone you come in contact with. A healthy, beautiful smile can draw others to you and get you noticed. The truth is, your smile has a large effect on your overall appearance. It can also have a large effect on your self-esteem and your confidence.
If you are embarrassed of your teeth and try to avoid laughing or smiling in the presence of others due to stained, yellowed, crooked, gapped or missing teeth, it can negatively affect every social interaction you have. This can greatly decrease your quality of life.
Fortunately, advances in cosmetic and restorative dentistry now make it possible for virtually everyone to have a beautiful confident smile. If your teeth are stained or yellowed, teeth whitening may be a good solution to brighten your smile and take years off of your appearance. If your teeth are crooked, you may be a candidate for clear braces or Six Month Smiles®. Porcelain veneers are a good solution for patients who have gaps in their teeth or teeth that are too long, too short or otherwise misshaped. Finally, if you are missing one or more teeth, you may be a good candidate for dental implants. Dental implants are a long-term tooth replacement option that allows for replacement teeth that look, feel and function like natural teeth.
Although cosmetic dental procedures can be expensive, spending time and money to improve the appearance of your smile is one of the best investments you can make. Many dental practices offer flexible financing options to help patients with the cost of cosmetic dental procedures. If you are unhappy with the appearance of your smile, talk to a cosmetic dentist today about your options. You deserve a beautiful, healthy smile!
