Dentists Advise, If You Want To Upgrade Your Image, Look At Your Smile

It doesn’t require getting a “Hollywood” smile, however…

…enhancing your smile can make you appear younger, improve your self-esteem and self-confidence, and also improve your conversation skills, your attractiveness, and favorably affect your own personal and professional connections.

According to studies by social psychologists, many people spend about 30 seconds appraising you before they begin to create a laundry list of opinions about your:

 • educational level
 • career competence
 • accomplishment
 • personality
 • class
 • trustworthiness
 • sense of humor
 • as well as your social beliefs.

 For better or worse, this means appearances count in today’s world.

With cosmetic dentistry, Berrien Dental will make your smile light up a room when you enter it. With skill and precision, we’ll create that beautiful smile of which you’ve been dreaming. Natural-looking alternatives such as porcelain veneers and crowns, metal-free bridges and natural colored fillings  look, feel and function like your own teeth.

Within an independent analysis in 2008, it was found:

97% of adult men and women think an attractive smile makes a person more appealing to members of the opposite sex.

Three-quarters (76%) of adults feel an unsightly smile can easily harm a person’s probability for career success.

When questioned, “What sorts of things do you think make a smile unattractive?” The most frequent responses were:

• Stained, Discolored, or Yellow Teeth
• Teeth Missing
• Teeth That are Not Straight
• Rotting Teeth And Cavities
• Spaces and Gaps in Teeth
• Unbrushed Teeth

Later, they questioned, “What exactly is the initial thing you notice in someone else’s smile?” The most frequent replies were:

•Straightness of the Smile
•Brightness And Shade of Teeth
•Cleanness of Teeth
•Is Their Smile Sincere?
•Missing Any Teeth?
•Glossiness of Smile

And finally, when participants had been questioned, “Exactly what would you most want to further improve with your own smile?” The most frequent answer was: “Brighter & Whiter Teeth”.

Natural-looking solutions including state-of-the-art metal-free crowns, porcelain veneers, bridges, and inlays/onlays appear, feel and perform just like your very own teeth. They enable us to save as much of the original tooth as is possible. Plus, do you know that, cosmetic dentistry could possibly get rid of creases and lines near your cheeks, mouth area and the rest of your face – without having cosmetic surgery?

Your smile is one of your most powerful assets. Whether out with friends or at a business meeting, it leads the way for the rest of your personality. Even so, it’s not just about how you look to others and in the way the rest of the world sees you. Fixing just just one chipped tooth could change your entire outlook on life. A smile makeover can transform you into a social sunbeam with a brand new attitude.

What Are Your Smile Goals?

Changing your smile can change your whole appearance. That’s why it’s so important that we work closely with you to make sure that we understand your expectations and that you are comfortable with your choices before we begin any cosmetic dental work.

We follow an all-inclusive approach and believe in assembling an agreed upon plan for your smile makeover. Cosmetic Dental Patient Juan
