The Power of a Beautiful Smile

Power-of-a-Beautiful-Smile1Whether it’s for business or personal reasons, a beautiful smile is your single most important asset. Studies show smiling improves your health, lowers your stress level, and certainly increases your attractiveness. Smiling changes your mood, relieves stress, boosts your immune system, lowers your blood pressure, releases endorphins, builds confidence, and most importantly…makes you look younger!

Today, there’s no reason not to have a dazzling smile. Of course, having healthy teeth is a good start. But, if you want a terrific smile, flawless teeth are one of the best investments you can make in yourself.

Dental technology has made enormous advances in recent years. Something as simple and affordable as teeth whitening and straightening can produce fast results. Many people have benefited from veneers and invisible braces to transform their smile from average to magnetic.


Beyond the obvious, here’s some other things to consider –
Gum line. An uneven or thick gum line can often get in the way of a great smile. We can reshape gum lines by sculpting and lifting the tissue or underlying bones to produce a more elongated effect.

Straightness. Crooked teeth can be a common source of embarrassment. Gone are the days of a mouth full of metal braces. In recent years, procedures have been developed to easily reshape crooked teeth with healthier and more attractive alternatives.

Symmetry. When a tooth or teeth are not symmetrical, the eye immediately notices it whenever you smile. And, whenever other people notice, that leads to your own struggle with self-consciousness.

Luster. Whitening procedures works wonders for dull tooth color. Sometimes it’s a matter of an off-white natural enamel color, and other times it can occur with smoking or drinking coffee or tea. These habits, or simply aging, can result in an unattractive or embarrassing smile. Now that whitening procedures are so common, it is possible to regain the beautiful smile of youth no matter how old you are.

Gaps. Life happens. Teeth get cracked or chipped. Gaps are normal and may worsen over time. You wouldn’t drive a car around with a dent in the fender, so why would you tolerate a cracked or chipped tooth when it can be so easily repaired?

A winning smile and a new sense of confidence are waiting for you!
