Your teeth are an important part of the body and overall health which many people forget to take great care of or at least get them checked and cleaned every six months. They are whitish, calcified and small structures which are located in a lot of vertebrates’ mouth or jaw and are useful for food break down. Your teeth also help you make a great first impression on people since your face and smile is usually the first thing people notice.

Gums cover the teeth which comprise of varying hardness and density of many tissues. In humans, the first set of teeth is known as the milk teeth which are lost during childhood when they are replaced with permanent teeth. Should you decide to improve the look of your teeth, here are some reasons why you should be careful in choosing a cosmetic dentist.

#1 You Will Feel More Confident

Don’t underestimate how a beautiful smile will make you feel about yourself! If you’re someone who covers their mouth when they smile or laugh, or avoids having a photograph taken, you’re missing out. We have a range of cosmetic dentistry options that help straighten teeth, replace teeth, and whiten teeth. Even subtle changes can make a huge difference in how you feel about yourself. Life is too short not to smile!

#2 Important Events – Smile from Ear to Ear in Every Photo

If you are getting married or attending some important event, you should pay a visit to your Oxnard Cosmetic Dentist to find out more about the available treatments to enhance your wonderful smile. No one wants to look sad and serious, smiling close-lipped on their wedding day, and you mustn’t let your bad smile stop you from enjoying the moment and feeling great. Significant life events are a common trigger for people who decide on teeth whitening, because they want to improve their appearance and not hide their smile on a special day. Dental treatments and procedures can take time, depending on your selection and treatment plan, so make sure to make an appointment in advance.
For example, teeth whitening can take two to three appointments spaced at least a week apart, whereas reshaping and contouring will take more than a few appointments.

#3 Prevent Diseases – Stay Healthy

Tooth decay, plaque and other oral diseases are not only unappealing to look at, but they also negatively influence our overall health. Oral diseases can affect everything from eating habits and digestive issues to respiratory health and stroke. To prevent further oral health problems or to repair damage caused by oral disease, people opt for cosmetic surgery. If your teeth are discolored and prone to cavities, then you can prevent it by covering them with crowns or caps, which will also restore their original shape.

#4 The Business World is All About the First Impression

In a “Behind the Smile” perception study conducted by Kelton for Invisalign, it was discovered that “even the alignment of teeth is a catalyst for assumptions regarding success, popularity, intelligence and general health.” Translation: crooked teeth can lead to people making blind judgements about your success, popularity, intelligence and overall health. We know that how a person’s teeth look is not an accurate reflection of those factors, and the team at Sarasota Smile Design can help you get a smile that will set people’s opinions straight!

If you are a professional, don’t let your bad teeth keep your skills and knowledge in the shade – you will appear less confident and if you feel less secure about your appearance, people might question your expertise.

#5 Improve Relationships and Become a Social Butterfly

People become unsociable when they feel insecure about their physical appearance. Many people who underwent cosmetic dental procedures claimed that it improved their relationships with other people, because they felt more at ease when going to social gatherings. When attending birthdays and weddings, you will be able to easily make new friends due to the fact that you are feeling good and acting friendly and happy. Moreover, a first date is always an exciting experience for both men and women, so if they have low self-esteem and are afraid to laugh openly, then they usually miss out on these experiences.

#6 Fight Bad Habits

If you are a smoker, then you know all about the yellowing effect the nicotine has on your teeth. And if you want to quit, you may want to try professionally whitening your teeth or undergoing some other cosmetic dental treatment. The fact is, when you realize you finally have white teeth, then you will want to reduce the amount of cigarettes you smoke in order to keep the gorgeous smile. The same goes for sugar addictions and eating a lot of sweets, which negatively affect your gums and teeth. Therefore, you can kill two birds with one stone – you will be able to smile all the time and give up a bad habit that is negatively affecting your overall health.

#7 You’re Going to Look Fantastic

The most obvious reason for cosmetic dentistry is how great you’re going to look. Yellow or gray teeth, broken or chipped teeth, even pitted teeth unnecessarily age you. With so many cosmetic dentistry options, you can treat almost any dentistry problem with often just a few simple treatments.

A beautiful smile plays a vital role in being a more confident, happy and healthy you. Don’t be afraid to improve your dento-facial aesthetics and show off your beautiful teeth, because it is your time to shine. Being confident and self-assured is the most attractive quality, after all. After any treatment, visit your dentist regularly and remember to take good care of your teeth in order to keep a youthful and beautiful smile for a long time.
