Experts Say, To Make A Better First Impression, Do Not Overlook Your Smile

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

…having cosmetic dental work done could make you look younger, boost your self-confidence and self-esteem, as well as improve your communication skills, your attractiveness, and favorably impact your personal and professional interactions.

According to research by social psychologists, many people spend around 30 seconds assessing you before they begin to form a list of perceptions about your:

 • academic level
 • career skills
 • success
 • character
 • class
 • dependability
 • sense of humor
 • as well as your social heritage.

 Good or bad, this means appearances matter these days.

With cosmetic dentistry, we are able to totally transform your smile and change your life. Through different procedures, we’ll create that beautiful smile of which you’ve been dreaming. Nature-mimicking restorations such as the latest porcelain or bonded natural-looking fillings, porcelain crowns and veneers  feel and function like your natural teeth and look incredible.

Supporting Research:

When participants in a 2008 independent survey were asked, “What exactly would you most want to further improve about your own smile?” The most common response was: “Brighter and Whiter Teeth”.

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

• Discolored, Yellow, or Stained Teeth
• Missing Teeth<
• Teeth That are Not Straight
• Decaying Teeth And Cavities
• Gaps & Spaces in Teeth
• Dirty Teeth

Virtually all Americans (98.7%) think a smile is a vital social asset.

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

Three-quarters (76%) of adult men and women think an unattractive smile can hurt a person’s chances for career success.

Later, researchers asked, “What is the very first thing you observe in another person’s smile?” The most common answers were:

• A Straight Smile
• Brightness And Shade of Teeth
• Cleanliness of Teeth
• Is Their Smile Sincere?
• Any Missing Teeth?
• Glossiness of Smile

A sparkly smile provides a unique impact on how young you look. A whiter and brighter smile that shows even teeth along with a healthy, gleaming pink gum line could take 10 years off of your true age.

Your smile is one of your most powerful possessions. Whether out with friends or at a business meeting, it leads the way for the rest of your personality. However, it’s not only about how you present yourself to the world. Enhancing just just one chipped tooth might make a positive difference in how you feel about yourself. Esthetic dentistry can turn you into a positive personality with whom people enjoy spending time.
