Are you ready for some shocking statistics? Roughly 33% of Americans are unhappy with their smile, over 80% want whiter teeth, and nearly 25% believe a better smile would lead to a better love life. So, it’s not surprising that more and more patients are turning to cosmetic dentistry to brighten, straighten, and otherwise perfect their teeth. However, a smile makeover can do more than just boost your appearance. Read on for the non-aesthetic benefits!
The Non-Cosmetic Benefits of a Smile Makeover
A straight, bright, gorgeous smile can make you look ten years younger, increase your self-confidence, and even improve your love life. But would you believe it can do more than just that? According to recent research, job applicants who underwent a teeth whitening treatment before their interview were over 50% more likely to be hired. Plus, subsequent research has found that a beautiful smile is associated with positive attributes, like wealth and success, and that it can lead to better oral health as well. So, it’s safe to say that a smile makeover can benefit your professional success, personal relationships, and overall health!
What’s Included in a Smile Makeover?
The phrase “smile makeover” is an all-encompassing term that could refer to a single cosmetic treatment or multiple services designed to help a patient achieve their smile goals. Some of the most common options include:
- Clear braces to discreetly straighten your smile.
- Cosmetic bonding to fix minor imperfections, like small chips and cracks.
- Teeth whitening treatments to lighten your teeth up to eight shades in one visit.
- Porcelain veneers to correct discoloration, minor misalignment, and other imperfections.
How Your Dentist Can Help
Since each smile is unique, it can be difficult to know which treatment is best for your specific dental needs. Fortunately, your dentist can help! After scheduling your initial consultation, they will conduct a thorough dental exam to ensure your oral health is in good condition and that no untreated concerns (like decay or infection) are neglected. Next, they will discuss your smile goals in-depth and share their recommendations based on their expertise. From there, all that’s left to do is decide which treatment option is best for you. Then, you’ll be one step closer to your new and improved smile!
