Dental Cosmetics Improve Patient Self Esteem and Confidence

Having a healthy smile is important, but so is having a great-looking smile that you can feel good about showing off. Cosmetic dentistry goes further than just improving the appearance of a smile, it’s also about improving dental health and boosting a patient’s self-confidence.

Being self-conscious about the way your teeth look will keep you from wanting to smile around other people, talk in social settings, or even make you come across as someone that isn’t very friendly.

Even if you feel confident with a little tooth discoloration or a crooked tooth, research shows that people with more beautiful smiles are more likely to have more friends, better jobs, and higher incomes. Investing in your smile goes beyond just changing the way people look at you, it changes the way you see yourself. When you’re not worrying about hiding your teeth, you have more freedom to laugh, smile, and enjoy laugh. You and others will see yourself as more confident when you decide to invest in a better looking smile.

The investment you make in cosmetic dentistry is one that can change your life. Every cosmetic care plan is different from patient to patient. Most people choose from one or a variety of options like:

  • Teeth whitening
  • Porcelain veneers
  • Tooth and gum recontouring
  • Porcelain crowns
  • Tooth colored filling and bonding

What do you want to change about your smile? Rest assured, it’s nothing that your dentist hasn’t heard before! Many dentists can provide you with before and after photos to give you an idea of similar cases that they’ve worked on, or simply to help you determine which type of treatment is best for your personal needs. Schedule your exam today!
