Have you looked at your smile in photos and thought, “When did my teeth become so discolored?” or “I really wish my teeth were straight”. Well, you aren’t alone. Recent polls show that 7 in 10 people feel self-conscious about their teeth. Over half of all Americans have insecurities about their teeth and wish they could make a change. If you’re with the majority of Americans and are looking to enhance your smile, a smile makeover can help.
A smile makeover is a combination of two or more procedures that enhance the appearance—and function—of your teeth and smile. Not only will a smile makeover improve the health and presentation of your teeth and smile, but it will help you gain confidence and lead a happier life.
A Smile Makeover = A Life Changed
Many people resolve to live with a smile that they aren’t happy with, but you don’t have to, and you don’t have to feel vain about wanting to change your smile. Evidence shows that people who smile more are physically happier than those who don’t smile. Smiling releases neuropeptides, dopamine, serotonin, and endorphins in your brain. These chemicals are responsible for reducing stress and depression, regulating mood, and relieving pain. It’s in your best interest to smile more!
Your smile, or lack thereof, is often the first impression that someone has of you. When you’re self-conscious about your smile, people may get the wrong idea about you. In many cases, this isn’t a problem, but it can be when you’re interviewing for jobs, conducting meetings with shareholders or coworkers, meeting a significant other’s family for the first time, going on a first date, or making new friends.
After your smile makeover, you can expect to be showing off your new smile at every chance you get. Your new smile will lead to increased confidence, an improved mood, and an overall increase in your quality of life.
