A Great Smile Can Improve Your ConfidenceMonday, August 22nd, 2016
Have you ever received a makeover?
A makeover can give you a boost of self-confidence. With a makeover, you look your best, and this often improves how you feel about yourself, too.
A makeover doesn’t have to involve anything elaborate. Maybe you have your hair styled or colored differently.
Of course, you know when you have a makeover that your hair will grow out again, and your makeup will need to be removed at some point.
Then again, you could get a smile makeover. The effect of this kind of makeover can do just as much for your confidence and self-esteem and the results can last much, much longer.
If this sounds like something you may be interested in, keep reading to learn how Advanced Smile Arts could give you this kind of makeover.
At the end, we will tell you how you can make an appointment at our dentist office in Danville, IL.
The Social Benefits Of A Great Smile
We have already noted the personal benefits that can come from improving your smile. When you are comfortable with how your teeth look, you are more likely to smile. That, in and of itself, can put other people at ease when they are around you.
But if you have a great smile, the kind of smile that people remember, then it can pay off in other ways as well.
Let’s start with romance.
USA Today reported on a survey of 5,500 single adults in the United States a few years ago. The survey was meant to find out what adult wanted in a romantic partner, and this included having the adult identify what they considered “must haves” in a potential partner.
Nothing was universally considered a “must have” trait, but the most common answer given by both women (71 percent) and men (58 percent) was nice teeth.
In the article that accompanied the survey results, an anthropologist pointed out that nice teeth aren’t just good for your smile. They also provide insight into how healthy a person is.
This makes sense from a biological standpoint, and it fits nicely with the results of another survey conducted by Kelton Research.
They found that about half of adults considered a smile to be an important part of making a good first impression. Respondents to this survey also reported that a nice smile makes a person appear more attractive.
But that’s not all Kelton found. In general, people with nice smiles were considered to be more successful, more intelligent, and more trustworthy, too.
Those are all traits that could pay off in a job interview or in meeting with a potential client or customer.
Getting A Smile Makeover
If you are interested in changing your smile, you may be looking for something specific, or you may be taking a big picture approach. Either way, we can help.
Maybe you have become concerned about the stains on your teeth. This can happen for anything number of reasons (coffee? tea? pizza? pasta?), and stains become more noticeable as we get older.
Professional teeth whitening is an excellent way to remove years or even decades of stains from your smile.
It’s also possible that you don’t like the shape of some of your teeth. Maybe you have some teeth that appear too large compared to the rest of your smile. Tooth contouring is a way to reshape those teeth so they “match” the rest of your smile.
On the other hand, maybe your teeth are “short,” causing you to have a gummy smile. We can use a dental laser to safely remove some of your gum tissue to create a higher tooth-to-gum ratio for you.
It’s normal for teeth to become worn down or for people to develop small chips in their teeth. Dental bonding is a simple method for restoring the shape of your teeth. Bonding involves applying a composite resin to your teeth that looks, feels, and functions like a natural tooth after it has hardened.
But what if you have a combination of the two or more of the issues mentioned above? We can mix and match services, or we may be able to fix multiple issues with dental veneers. These are a shell that is bonded to the front of your teeth.
Veneers can make your teeth look whiter and fix worn down teeth. Veneers also can make your teeth look straighter and close gaps in your smile.
