Woman having the shade of her teeth matchedIf you’re one of the many people who’s embarrassed by their smile, it can affect every aspect of your life. Covering your mouth when you laugh or feeling self-conscious before a job interview are just some of the negative ways it can impact you every day. But, regardless of the issue you want to correct, a cosmetic dentist has a solution to make your smile look great – often in just 1-2 visits. And while the main goal is to have an attractive smile, an added bonus is the boost you’ll get to your self-confidence. Keep reading to learn about 3 ways a beautiful smile will help you look and feel great!

1. You’ll Look Younger

Just one of the many charming side effects of aging is yellow teeth. This happens to everyone and occurs because the enamel layer becomes thinner with time, making the darker layer underneath show up more.

Professional whitening is a fast, simple way to safely whiten your smile by 6-10 shades. It will not only make you look younger but also feel younger as well.

2. Your Smile Will Be Healthy

The foundation of an attractive smile is clean, cavity-free teeth and healthy gums. If you currently have any oral health issues such as cavities or gum disease, a cosmetic dentist will recommend that you start by addressing those issues first. This alone will go a long way towards making your smile look better.

Then, when your smile is healthy, any cosmetic procedures you do will take it from good to great.

3. You’ll Be Happier

You’ve probably heard the expression, “Smile and the whole world smiles with you.” This is just another way of saying that smiling is contagious. It not only makes you feel happier, but also makes the people around you feel happier as well.

In fact, many studies have shown that smiling creates chemical changes in your brain that improve your mood and increase your happiness – even if the smile is forced. The next time you’re feeling stressed or down, try smiling – you’ll be surprised at the emotional boost it gives you.

What’s the First Step In a Smile Makeover?

Before your smile can increase your self-confidence, you have to feel good about how it looks first. The first step is a consultation with a dentist who offers cosmetic procedures such as whitening, porcelain veneers and direct bonding.

After discussing your goals, oral health, and dental history, they’ll be able to recommend the best treatment plan for you!
