Experts Say, To Make A Better First Impression, Look At Your Smile

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

…having a smile lift could make you appear younger, boost your self-esteem and self-confidence, as well as enhance your communication skills, your attractiveness, and positively affect your personal and professional interactions.

According to research by social psychologists, the majority of people take around thirty seconds assessing you just before they start to form a laundry list of perceptions regarding your:

 • academic level
 • work skills
 • accomplishment
 • character
 • sophistication
 • trustworthiness
 • sense of humor
 • as well as your social heritage.

 For better or worse, this means looks matter these days.

Using esthetic dentistry, we have the technology and techniques to give you a smile that will change your life. Using the latest advancements, we will create your perfect smile. Nature-mimicking restorations such as the latest porcelain or bonded natural-looking fillings, porcelain crowns and veneers  look, feel and function like your own teeth.

Within an independent study in 2008, it was found:

When asked, “What exactly is the first thing you observe in someone else’s smile?” The most common responses were:

• A Straight Smile
• Brightness & Color of Teeth
• Cleanness of Teeth
• Sincerity of the Smile
• Any Missing Teeth?
• Glossiness of Smile

When respondents had been asked, “What would you most want to improve about your own smile?” The most common answer was: “Brighter and Whiter Teeth”.

Then when asked, “What types of things do you believe make a smile less attractive?” The most common replies were:

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

Practically all Americans (98.7%) feel a smile is a crucial social asset.

97% of adult men and women think a wonderful smile makes a person more desirable to those of the opposite sex.

Three-quarters (76%) of adult men and women truly feel an unappealing smile can easily hurt an individual’s chances for job success.

A sparkly smile provides a significant influence on just how young you appear. A white and bright smile that shows even teeth and a healthy, gleaming pink gum line could take a decade away from your true age.

Imagine how a new smile could change your life. You’re younger looking. You’re more attractive and confident. With so many advancements in cosmetic dentistry and, with procedures becoming more affordable all the time, you no longer have to live with a less than stellar smile.

What Goals Do You Have For Your Smile?

Changing your smile can change your whole appearance. That’s why it’s so important that you are an equal partner in all of the decisions to make sure that we understand your expectations and that you are comfortable with your choices before we begin any cosmetic dental work.

At Berrien Dental, we take a comprehensive game plan and believe in creating treatment options into a plan. Cosmetic Dental Patient Pieta
