The Value of a Pretty Smile

woman with a pefect smileDid you know that 92 percent of Americans consider a beautiful smile as one of their most important features? An attractive smile can improve your self-confidence, make your look younger and even improve your career success. If you approve of your smile appearance, you are likely to smile more often. There is research to suggest that smiling promotes better health, improved moods and a stronger immune system.

Unfortunately, few of us were born with a perfect smile. It is more common to be unhappy with the way your teeth look. This can include a wide range of dental imperfections, such as teeth that are gapped, crooked, chipped, discolored or misshapen.

The Winning Solution of Cosmetic Dentistry

The good news is that there is a field of dentistry that can address all of these aesthetic concerns, and it is not as invasive or time-consuming as you may think. More and more patients are realizing how easy it is to achieve a more attractive smile and are taking advantage of cosmetic dentistry. In fact, according to Shape magazine, cosmetic dentistry has risen over 250 percent in just the past five years! Cosmetic dentistry can include a wide range of services, including teeth whitening, crowns, bridges, porcelain veneers, lumineers, dental bonding and more.

A More Attractive Smile May Boost Your Oral Health

In many cases, a more attractive smile can also mean a healthier smile. For example, if you correct crooked or gapped teeth, you’ll be able to clean them better and avoid decay and gum disease. Dream Dentist offers ClearCorrect and Invisalign as part of our menu of cosmetic dental treatments.

It also goes without saying that someone who is proud of their smile will also want to take care of it. After cosmetic dentistry, we find that patients are more diligent in their oral hygiene routine and routine dental appointments to protect their investment.
