3 Dramatic, Long-Term Benefits of Getting a Smile Makeover
September 9, 2013 by Dr. Emanuel Layliev cosmetic dentistry
More people are becoming aware of the dramatic impact that a smile makeover can have on their lives. Beyond simply correcting dental problems that may be uncomfortable or painful, corrective dentistry has a wide range of positive effects. For this reason, more and more people are turning to cosmetic dentists for help. In NYC, the NY Center for Cosmetic Dentistry is the premiere creator of beautiful smiles. We have worked with a number of celebrities to help them achieve perfect smiles, but we also work with people from all walks of life. Every client we treat is special to us and receives the highest quality of care whether they’re interested in Invisalign or teeth whitening, porcelain veneers or some other cosmetic procedure.
Here are a few of the positive benefits that can come about from a smile makeover:
1. Better First Impression
Statistics show that for many people, a smile is the first thing they notice about someone. It is also the thing they remember most after meeting someone. Research suggests that a pleasant smile with straight teeth also has a dramatic effect on the way a person is perceived, making them seem more successful, more intelligent and wealthier. This can have a long-term impact on business and employment-related connections, romantic relationships and potential friendships.
2. Health Benefits
Studies have shown that smiling more often has health benefits. It can relieve stress by releasing endorphins, lower high blood pressure and it even has a positive impact on heart health. People with misaligned teeth are more likely to avoid smiling out of embarrassment, which means they are missing out on some of these health benefits.
3. Boosts Confidence and Self-Esteem
An attractive smile is far more likely to create a positive response from other people. This can have a direct impact on confidence levels, which can make a person bolder, more approachable and friendlier. This, in turn, has obvious far-reaching effects on a person’s life.
Nowadays, cosmetic dentists have a number of procedures available to them to correct all kinds of tooth problems. One popular way to realign teeth is called Invisalign. With Invisalign, clear plastic aligners are custom-molded and placed over the teeth to slowly move them into the correct positions. This avoids the potentially embarrassing appearance of braces and causes less pain. Because it is made of smooth plastic, there is less risk of damage to sensitive areas, like the gums and cheeks.
Whatever the tooth problems might be, the NY Center of Cosmetic Dentistry can recommend a treatment to correct it. We are in the business of smile makeovers, and our beautiful smiles have graced magazine covers as well as movie and television screens.
