Deciding to invest in your smile is a great way to address aesthetic issues or embarrassing flaws in your teeth. If you’ve always dreamed of talking to a cosmetic dentist about a possible smile makeover, here are a few reasons why you shouldn’t put it off.
A Smile Makeover Can Boost Your Self-Confidence
One of the main reasons most people invest in a smile makeover is so that they can feel more comfortable with their appearance. Whether you just want to feel happy looking in the mirror or have always been embarrassed by that problematic tooth at the front of your smile, a great cosmetic dentist will work with you to address your primary concerns in a way that fits your long-term goals and budget restraints.
Some people find that they feel better and more confident by erasing the signs of teeth that are:
- Crooked, gapped, or misshaped
- Worn down, broken, or chipped
- Stained, discolored
A Smile Makeover Can Help Make a Great First Impression
There have actually been experiments that show people with whiter, straighter smiles tend to do “better” at job interviews (and even be offered higher salaries). While there’s no guarantee that a smile makeover will get you a raise, it may be a smart investment if you’re hoping to enter the workforce, dating scene or other social networks where appearance matters.
A Smile Makeover To Help Make More Friends
Some studies have shown that people who laugh and smile more often tend to have a lot of friends. But if you feel embarrassed about the way your teeth look, you might not be smiling much at all. For people who don’t know you well, this body language could make them think you’re a bit stand-offish or even unlikeable.
A smile makeover can give you the freedom to interact with others more, without worrying about embarrassing flaws in your smile. The friendlier you feel, the friendlier others will think you are!
A Smile Makeover Can Help Improve Your Overall Health
Existing tooth decay and gum disease don’t just affect the appearance of your smile, they slowly work away at it day after day. The bacterial infections around your teeth can spread elsewhere in the body, increasing your risk of health problems like:
- Heart disease, stroke, heart attack
- Respiratory disease
- Fertility complications
…and many others.
By eliminating dental infections you’re not just enhancing your smile’s aesthetics, you’re benefitting your overall wellness for a lifetime. A smile makeover will address multiple aspects of your dental health, not just how bright your teeth look.
Preserve Your Healthy Teeth
Treating diseased or missing teeth can consequently extend the lifetime of the healthy teeth that are adjacent to them. For example, let’s say you’re missing a couple of teeth but they aren’t visible. Allowing that space to go empty will eventually lead to the neighbouring teeth drifting inward, and a chain-reaction of tooth misalignment taking place across your smile.
