Researchers Suggest, To Improve How People Perceive You, Look At Your Smile

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

…enhancing your smile can make you look younger, boost your self-confidence and self-esteem, as well as improve your communication abilities, your sex appeal, and positively impact your personal and professional relationships.

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

 • educational level
 • work competence
 • success
 • personality
 • sophistication
 • trustworthiness
 • sense of humor
 • and your social heritage.

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

Using cosmetic dentistry, our staff is able to totally transform your smile and change your life. Using the latest advancements, we will create your perfect smile. Nature-mimicking restorations such as advanced metal-free crowns, veneers, bridges, and inlays/onlays  feel and function like your natural teeth and look incredible.

In an independent study in 2008, it was discovered:

97% of adult men and women believe that a stunning smile really makes a particular person more pleasing to individuals of the other sex.

Three-quarters (76%) of us think an unsightly smile can easily damage someone’s probability for job success.

Then, when asked, “What sorts of things do you think make a smile unappealing?” The most typical answers were:

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

Researchers followed up and asked, “What’s the very first thing you see in another person’s smile?” The most typical responses were:

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

And lastly, when participants had been asked, “Exactly what would you most want to further improve with your own smile?” The most typical 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, did you know, cosmetic dentistry might get rid of creases and lines near your cheeks, mouth area and the rest of your face – without cosmetic 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 veneers, porcelain crowns, porcelain bridges and onlays, implants, natural looking bonded filling replacements, gum contouring, and whitening.
