If You Have Decided To Change Your Image, Take A Close Look At Your Smile

It’s not necessary to get a “Hollywood” smile, but…

…enhancing your smile could make you seem younger, improve your self-esteem and self-confidence, as well as increase your conversation abilities, your attractiveness, and positively influence your personal and professional connections.

As outlined in studies by social psychologists, many people spend around thirty seconds assessing you just before they start to form a list of thoughts regarding your:

 • academic level
 • job competence
 • success
 • character
 • sophistication
 • dependability
 • sense of humor
 • and your social heritage.

 For better or worse, this means that looks count these days.

Using cosmetic dentistry, Berrien Dental will make your smile light up a room when you enter it. Using the latest advancements, we’ll create that beautiful smile of which you’ve been dreaming. Natural-looking alternatives such as the latest porcelain or bonded natural-looking fillings, porcelain crowns and veneers  look, feel and function like your own teeth.

In an independent study in 2008, it was discovered:

97% of adults think an attractive smile really makes a person more appealing to those of the opposite sex.

Three-quarters (76%) of us think an ugly smile can easily hurt a person’s chances for career success.

When questioned, “What sorts of things do you feel make a smile less attractive?” The most common replies were:

• Discolored, Yellow, or Stained Teeth
• Missing Teeth
• Crooked Teeth
• Rotting Teeth And Cavities
• Gaps & Spaces in Teeth
• Dirty Teeth

Researchers followed up and questioned, “What exactly is the initial thing you see in a new acquaintenance’s smile?” The most common answers were:

•A Straight Smile
•Whiteness And Color of Teeth
•Cleanliness of Teeth
•Is Their Smile Sincere?
•Any Missing Teeth?
•Glossiness of Smile

And lastly, when respondents had been questioned, “Exactly what would you most want to improve with your own smile?” The most common answer was: “Brighter and Whiter Teeth”.

Natural-looking solutions including state-of-the-art metal-free crowns, porcelain veneers, bridges, and inlays/onlays appear, feel and function just like your very own teeth. They enable us to save as much of the original tooth as possible. And, did you know, cosmetic dentistry might get rid of creases and lines around your cheeks, mouth area and the rest of your face – without plastic surgery?

Let yourself dream about a more attractive smile for a minute. You’ve taken ten years off of your appearance. You look great and and you feel confident. The practice of cosmetic dentistry has come so far in just a few years and, with procedures becoming more affordable all the time, you can change your smile and change your life.
