Your smile plays an essential role in how you present yourself to others and how others perceive you. Whether colleagues, family, friends, or complete strangers, when you come face-to-face with people, they notice your smile, or lack thereof. If you’re smiling too little or are embarrassed by your teeth, it’s time to find out how cosmetic dentistry can transform your look and personality.
When you smile with your mouth closed because you’re ashamed of your teeth, your grin can’t always reach your eyes. That glint in the eye is important so people can see your smile as genuine and welcoming. Refusing to smile with your teeth, or being reluctant to smile at all, implies that you’re too serious, detached, or even unfriendly.
Make the First Move
Have you ever wanted to go up to someone and introduce yourself but been reluctant to make the first move because of how your teeth look? Whether the situation is romantic or professional, if you are rocking a flawless smile, you won’t have to wait for people to come to you (though they will naturally be drawn to your brilliant smile). Your confidence will propel you to say and do what you want. Not only your teeth will be transformed, your whole self will be positively altered too.
Be an Open Book
Do you have something to hide? If you’re not smiling much or maybe not even saying much because you’re embarrassed about how your teeth look, people might think you’re concealing a comment, a feeling, or quietly judging them. Knowing your teeth look amazing all the time will allow you to access your true feelings, good or bad, and be confident about speaking your mind or reassuring others that it’s not them, it’s you.
Cosmetic dentistry allows you to find and embrace your authenticity, even though the pair may seem at odds. Yes, some forms of cosmetic dentistry entirely alter the shape, size, and construction of your teeth, but that doesn’t mean the changes will look unnatural. Hardly. When you work with an experienced and highly respected Manhattan cosmetic dentist, your smile will look authentic and add weight to the words you speak and the emotions you exude.
A True Smile Will Open Doors
Your teeth are a big part of who you are and how you present yourself to the world, or at least how you represent yourself to your professional or social circles in Manhattan. Looks matter – and if yours isn’t right, it’s time to do something about it so you can finally succeed in all the ways you want.
There are many cosmetic dentistry treatments, and there is at least one procedure that can fix the problems you have with your smile. Targeted treatments, like professional teeth-whitening, can correct the discoloration of tooth enamel. Versatile treatments, like porcelain veneers, can conceal multiple aesthetic issues at one time.
