Have you been thinking about getting that crooked tooth looked at, or having your teeth whitened by your dentist? These are common concerns that can be easily treated with cosmetic dentistry. Procedures like teeth whitening, bonding, and porcelain veneers are very popular. They don’t have to make dramatic changes in the smile to achieve exciting results. In fact, many patients who go through with their intended smile-enhancement are surprised by the benefits they notice.
People seek cosmetic dentistry services because they want their smile to look better. This is the obvious goal. So, the achievement of that is pretty good in and of itself. But there’s more than comes from this initial benefit.
Cosmetic Dentistry Benefits
- Having a smile you want to look at. This goes beyond the satisfaction of not having to look at that crooked tooth anymore, or those dull teeth. What we notice when working with patients is that they really love their smile, from the first moment they see the final result from treatment in the mirror. In some instances, this is a wonderfully emotional surprise.
- Having a smile you love. Loving your smile can mean that you love to look at it. It can mean that you love to show it off. What research suggests is that, when the smile is made to look better, there is also a heightened sense of commitment to oral care. People who get the bright smile they have wanted end up brushing and flossing more so the results they have achieved can last as long as possible. The extra TLC the smile gets results in better oral health overall. Win-Win!
- Having more success in love and life. Really, this is another detail of research. In one study, it was discovered that people with an attractive smile were more likely to get a job they applied for. They were more likely to get promoted, and to earn more money. On the romantic front, a nice smile reportedly makes a person “more kissable.”
