Disliking the clothes you’re wearing can ruin your entire day. Being uncomfortable in your own skin – or, rather, your own smile – is far worse, because that situation isn’t temporary, unless you do something about it. Don’t be permanently ashamed of how you look because you’re embarrassed by your teeth. Invest in cosmetic dentistry and you will always know that you look good.
A Perfect Smile Affects Your State of Mind
Have you ever forgotten yourself in a moment and bared your stained or unsightly teeth in a smile? Maybe you saw someone glance at your teeth and quickly look away, trying to avoid eye contact. Knowing your teeth aren’t a pretty sight can impact your mood, ambition, friendliness, and so much more.
Your confidence is affected by the condition of your teeth – and you know it. When you feel good about how you look, that feeling can reverberate through every part of your day, affecting your demeanor and behavior at work, your energy level at social engagements, and your mood at home.
When you’re embarrassed by your teeth, you can find yourself in a permanent funk, and this is enough to influence how you feel about yourself, your worthiness, and whether people will like or trust you. A good smile can help you succeed at work, in love, and in just about every aspect of your life.
Fixing the “Unfixable” with Cosmetic Dentistry
You may think there is no hope for your teeth, but even your dental problems can be fixed, no matter what they are. What’s necessary is the willingness to admit that your teeth are causing you stress and affecting your life, and taking the steps to change that reality. You don’t have to live with the yellow enamel, dark stains, broken teeth, obvious gaps, and you especially don’t have to live with discomfort.
There are many cosmetic restorations that can improve your smile. Here are just some of the situations you may find yourself in, and the potential solutions for them:
- Teeth are an unsightly color. You know the shade of your tooth enamel goes beyond coffee stains. Your New York City dentist will let you know whether you can benefit from a professional teeth-whitening, or if a more in-depth solution like porcelain veneers will be necessary. Veneers are a popular solution – whether prepless veneers, Lumineers, or otherwise – because they correct multiple aesthetic complaints at one time. Instead of many cosmetic procedures on your teeth, you could only need one.
- Too many broken teeth. It’s not just the appearance of broken teeth that is a problem. Any compromised tooth is more susceptible to housing food and bacteria, which is more likely to cause infection and the need for a root canal or extraction. Porcelain crowns not only restore a tooth in shape, size, and beauty, they make the tooth fully functional again and save your tooth (and the surrounding teeth) from further damage.
- Your teeth just look old. Age can do a number on your smile. After years of using your teeth, eating and drinking, and even taking medications, you can end up with a worn-out smile. A smile makeover can consist of one cosmetic dentistry procedure or multiple procedures. The most important thing to know is that your makeover will be customized to your needs. So, whatever makes you unhappy about your smile can be fixed so you’re proud to show off a gorgeous set of teeth.
