Time To Improve Your Image? Evaluate Your Smile

Good or bad, looks matter these days.

As outlined in research by social psychologists in and around Berrien Springs, MI, many people take around thirty seconds assessing you just before they start to develop a list of opinions regarding your:

• academic level
• work skills
• accomplishments
• persona
• social rank
• credibility
• sense of humor
• your social beliefs

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

…enhancing your smile could make you appear younger, improve your self-esteem and self-confidence, and also improve your conversation skills, your attractiveness, and favorably affect your own personal and professional connections. Cosmetic Dental Patient Zenda

With esthetic dentistry, our staff has the technology and techniques to give you a smile that will change your life. 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.

Within an independent analysis in 2008, it was found:

When questioned, “What’s the initial thing you observe in someone else’s smile?” The most common responses were:

• Straightness of the Smile
• Brightness And Shade of Teeth
• Cleanness of Teeth
• Is Their Smile Sincere?
• Missing Any Teeth?
• Glossiness of Smile

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

Then when questioned, “What sorts of things do you think make a smile less attractive?” The most common responses were:

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

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

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

Three-quarters (76%) of adult men and women feel an ugly smile can easily harm someone’s chances for career success.

A sparkly smile has a significant effect on how young you look. A whiter and brighter smile that reveals even teeth and a healthy, gleaming pink gum line might take 10 years off of your actual age.

Consider the changes a smile makeover would bring. You’re younger looking. You’re more attractive and 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 have a complete smile makeover.

What Do You Want From Your Smile?

A smile lift can lift your self esteem and your social standing. That’s why it’s so important that you are an equal partner in all of the decisions to assure that we are on the same track before we begin any cosmetic dental work.
