Time For An Image Re-Boot? Take A Close Look At Your Smile

For better or worse, appearances count these days.

As outlined in studies by social psychologists in and around Berrien Springs, MI, most people take around 30 seconds appraising you just before they start to create a list of opinions about your:

• academic level
• career skills
• accomplishments
• personality
• social rank
• dependability
• sense of humor
• your social mores

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

…getting a smile makeover could make you seem younger, boost your self-confidence and self-esteem, as well as improve your communication skills, your sex appeal, and positively affect your own personal and professional relationships.Cosmetic Dental Patient Clint

Using esthetic dentistry, we are able to 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. Nature-mimicking restorations such as porcelain veneers and crowns, metal-free bridges and natural colored fillings  feel and function like your natural teeth and look incredible.

Within an independent analysis in 2008, it was found:

When questioned, “What exactly is the very first thing you observe in another person’s smile?” The most frequent replies were:

• Straightness of the Smile
• Brightness & Color of Teeth
• Cleanliness of Teeth
• Sincerity of the Smile
• Missing Any Teeth?
• Sparkle of Smile

When respondents were questioned, “What would you most want to improve about your own smile?” The most frequent answer was: “Brighter and Whiter Teeth”.

And when questioned, “What types of things do you believe make a smile less attractive?” The most frequent answers were:

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

Nearly all Americans (98.7%) believe a smile is a crucial social asset.

97% of adults feel an attractive smile makes a person more pleasing to people of the opposite sex.

Three-quarters (76%) of adults truly feel an unappealing smile can damage someone’s odds for job success.

Natural-looking alternatives such as state-of-the-art metal-free crowns, porcelain veneers, bridges, and inlays/onlays appear, feel and function just like your very own teeth. They allow us to save as much of the natural tooth as is possible. And, did you know that, cosmetic dentistry might clear away creases and lines around your cheeks, mouth area and the rest of your face – with no plastic surgery?

We can improve your self esteem and your relationships with cosmetic dentistry! Berrien Dental offers a full range of cosmetic and restorative dentistry procedures to achieve your ultimate smile goals, including porcelain crowns, porcelain veneers, bridges and onlays, implants, tooth-colored bonded filling replacements, gum contouring, and smile bleaching.

What Are Your Smile Goals?

A smile lift can lift your self esteem and your social standing. That’s why it’s so important that we collaborate 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 take an all-inclusive strategy and believe in creating treatment options into a plan. Cosmetic Dental Patient Juan
