Hunting for the perfect match this Valentine’s Day? February 14 is an intimidating and pressure-filled holiday that can make single folks feel like they have a deadline to meet. Your cosmetic dentist knows that perfection takes time, but it’s always worth the wait, whether you’re talking perfect smile or perfect love. One thing is for certain: If you upgrade your smile, you’ll look that much better and be that much closer to finding the perfect match.
The Power of the Perfect Smile
You don’t have to be perfect to find the perfect match, but feeling good about how you look and who you are is essential. Your smile is a major player in your overall appearance, and it’s often the first thing people see. You’re being judged on your smile, whether you like it or not.
The better your teeth are, the more likely you are to smile, speak up, laugh, and make your feelings known. If your teeth are in poor condition, however, you’ll be less likely to do any of these things – and that means a lower likelihood of anyone noticing you, remembering you, or making a love connection.
Get a Better Dating Profile with a Smile Makeover
Dating profiles are all about the photos. Ideally, matches will get to the meat of your profile and read about who you are and what you want from a relationship. Those photos though, they’re the first thing people see. Apps like Tinder are based on photos – you swipe right if you like how someone looks. If your selfies aren’t serving you well, consider whether your smile, or lack thereof, is playing a role in your dating success.
Are you smiling in the photos you have on your dating profiles? Do you always have a closed mouth or never show your teeth? Do you look too serious or mean because you aren’t smiling? If you are afraid to open up and show your teeth, that’s a sure sign to make a move to improve your smile. After all, if you can’t even reveal your teeth in photos, how are you going to manage with an in-person meet-up or date?
Quick Corrections for a Perfect Smile
Perfection has many definitions, depending on who you are and what your expectations are. Here are some quick cosmetic dentistry fixes for a smile makeover:
- Teeth whitening: One hour in your New York City cosmetic dentist’s chair and your teeth can be multiple shades whiter. Unlike over-the-counter products, professional teeth whitening is a targeted treatment and carefully administered so as not to irritate the gums. Even if your teeth are crooked or gapped, whitening gives the illusion of perfection.
- Cosmetic tooth bonding: Have a few unsightly teeth that are ruining your whole smile? Cosmetic tooth bonding can correct a damaged, stained, or misshapen tooth in one quick visit to the dentist. It only takes about 30 minutes to reshape or rebuild a tooth and make it blend in with the rest of your teeth so it doesn’t stand out in a bad way.
- One-hour veneers: You can get an instant and dramatic improvement for your entire smile with one-hour Cerinate. Customized for your smile in shape, size, and color, one-hour veneers can be placed quickly so you have the smile you want in time for your date, special event, or singles party.
