New Year, New Smile: 5 Reasons to Add a Smile Makeover to Your New Year’s Resolutions
New Year—New, Confident You
When a new year begins creeping up, it’s time to break out the resolutions. Perhaps you want to get in shape. Maybe your ultimate goal is to get that promotion or get a new job altogether. More often than not, New Year’s resolutions have one thing in common—they’re usually about bettering yourself.
Have you ever thought of making a smile makeover your New Year’s resolution? Don’t underestimate the power a confident smile can have! Whether you are worried about misalignments or discolored teeth, there are options out there just for you. If you are dealing with cracked, damaged, or even missing teeth, there are options for you as well! No matter what your insecurity might be, you might be surprised how much your life can improve when you take control of them.
1. Boost self-confidence and self-esteem with a smile makeover.
If confidence in your smile is something you struggle with, why not make the decision to change it? Even if others may view your insecurities as simple, that doesn’t diminish the power these things can have over your own life. You might feel like everyone notices your imperfections, or that everyone makes assumptions based on your teeth. If this sounds familiar, cosmetic dentistry might just be the solution for you!
2. Enhance personal and professional relationships.
Did you know that your smile is one of the first things a stranger notices when they meet you? If you have any worries about your grin, this can be a terrifying statistic. People make assumptions about your lifestyle based on your smile, and though we hope they won’t make decisions based on that fact alone, it happens.
3. Improve oral health and functionality.
People don’t only get smile makeovers for aesthetic purposes. There are many different oral health issues that smile makeovers address. Utilizing these restorative measures can make it easier for a person to eat, speak, or even keep their teeth from shifting out of place after a tooth is lost.
For example, dental implants, bridges, and even dentures are solutions to severe tooth damage or tooth loss. Veneers and crowns can be used when a tooth is cracked. This keeps bacteria from tunneling its way to the root and making the problem worse. If your teeth are misaligned, Invisalign can be the perfect method to straighten them!
4. Embrace positive change and self-care.
We all love the feeling of getting something new. A new phone, computer, or even a car can feel like a breath of fresh air. When you get a new computer, your desktop isn’t cluttered with a ton of different documents. Your new phone isn’t filled with tons of photos of a stray cat you saw six years ago. And the car you just bought isn’t covered with unidentified crumbs from your little ones.
When we get new things, it gives us the chance for a fresh start. We want to take the time to keep them clean. We want to vacuum that car, we want to put the files away in their designated locations, and we want to sort through the cat photos to pick the best one.
The same goes for a smile makeover. When we have a new, refreshed smile, we are more likely to want to take care of it and ourselves. We’re more likely to spend time brushing and flossing our teeth, and we might want to eat more nutritious foods to fuel our bodies. We might even be more inclined to take time for ourselves and prioritize self-care. After all, we deserve it.
5. Gain a youthful and vibrant appearance.
If you have missing or damaged teeth, treating yourself to a smile makeover can drastically change your appearance—in a good way! When someone has major tooth discoloration or obvious missing teeth, we tend to assume they are older than they might be.
That smile makeover might just be what you need to turn back the clock! Veneers are placed over the damaged teeth, matching them with the rest of your smile and dramatically brightening your appearance. If your teeth are more discolored than you’d like, teeth whitening can do wonders at turning back that clock.
It’s time to complete those resolutions.
