First impressions are very important. Often people judge others by that first glimpse they get. It might not be the right thing to do, but this is human nature. Not everyone has that perfect smile that is shown on toothpaste commercials. Some people were born with difficult teeth and they have had to deal with it their whole life. When they were children, parents were not able to get the needed dental help. Other people had beautiful straight teeth at one time, but with age, things change. Now all that can change. With all the new technology, people of all ages are getting the smile they want. It does not take years or a large bank account. A good cosmetic dentist will be able to sit down and explain all the options.
One of the biggest benefits of having a beautiful smile is self-esteem. There won’t be any reason to smile with a closed mouth in pictures once someone has the needed dental work done. Many dentists are willing to work with patients and help them find the needed financing to get this work done. The dentist is not longer this dreaded Doctor who drills for hours. They can now change most smiles into beautiful picture perfect mouths. Braces, crowns and implants are all easily available for patients of all ages.
Most people forget about how important it is to have healthy teeth until they get a toothache. Nothing is worse then having a terrible pain in one of the molars all weekend while waiting for the dentist office to open on Monday morning.
Another reason to have a bright clean smile is for job interviews. Most employers remark that while interviewing if the person looks down and seems to be hiding something, they don’t get the job. What a big relief it is to smile freely and feel good about what the new employer is seeing.
Older people report that they experienced low self esteem much of their life because of their teeth. They felt they were born with this type of smile and there wasn’t much they could do. Today one third of people in the orthodontists office are over twenty and many of them are in their seventies. Anyone can find a new lease on life and a reason to smile.
Cosmetic dentistry is easy to find. It is available even in small communities. Braces are now invisible or clear. Some people have plastic trays they wear to straighten their teeth. No wires or rubber bands involved. It is simple and can change the way someone see themselves. Unfortunately others do judge people by what their mouth looks like. It is easy to get a consultation and have a heart to heart talk with a good dentist. For most people it is life changing.
