A healthy and beautiful smile is a great way to increase self esteem and prepare for future career and personal success. Unfortunately, many people are self conscious about one or more problems related to their smile and it tends to hold them back in their lives. Cosmetic and family dentistry can be a great opportunity to correct these problems and to step out into the world in a new light.
If you or someone you know avoids taking pictures, social situations or has poor self esteem all because of an imperfect smile, cosmetic dentistry can help. Simple procedures such as teeth whitening can make a big difference, while a more involved process of having porcelain veneers fit over existing teeth can also create a brand new smile. Not only will this boost a person’s confidence, but it will attract and impress others as well because of the new attitude a person will exude.
The Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry determined that 99.7% of people polled admitted that they felt a good smile was an important social asset to have. Of those 99.7%, only half were content with their own smile. Simple, yet effective procedures are relatively affordable and are available at almost all cosmetic dentistry locations across the country. Braces (including nearly invisible models) can fix crooked teeth, implants can replace missing teeth and bonding can alter chipped or cracked teeth that have deteriorated over time.
