9 Ways Cosmetic Dentistry Can Enhance Self-Esteem
Dental work to improve your smile can boost your self-confidence.
An Ipsos-MORI survey discovered that nearly 20 million people believe smile improvements would increase their confidence.
Almost a third of those surveyed responded that beautiful teeth would help them overcome concern about personal appearance and nearly half thought an attractive smile could improve their appearance.
The survey that comprised a nationally-representative sample of people aged over 15 years of age throughout Great Britain, found that 1.25 million adults feel less attractive because they need corrective orthodontic treatment.
These respondents report that their unattractive smiles have prevented them from laughing and smiling. Almost a million adults say their unattractive smile has decreased their self-esteem and that it causes them problems when meeting people face-to-face.
And other studies prove this out. One study identified nine advantages to an attractive smile.
This is what the researchers at UMKC discovered:
- Smiling can make you look younger.
- Smiling can make you look thinner.
- Smiling improves your mood and builds a sense of well-being.
- Smiling creates more pleasure in the brain than chocolate does.
- Just the act of smiling can cause a mood boost.
- Smiles can predict fulfillment in romance. One study found that smiling predicted how satisfying and long-lasting a person’s marriage would be.
- Smiling makes you seem likable, courteous, and competent.
- A person’s smile can predict their life span. In a study of baseball players on cards, players who didn’t smile lived an average of 72.9 years, while players sporting big smiles lived almost 80 years.
- Smiling is contagious. When you smile, you make others smile as well.
But what if your smile isn’t perfect? What if you are afraid to smile because of crooked, yellowed, or missing teeth? At Forster Dental Centre, our cosmetic dentist Forster options can help you!
Enhance Appearance With Cosmetic Dentistry
Forster Dental Centre offers treatments such as teeth whitening Forster, veneers, bonding, and even dental implants to improve the appearance of your smile. Cosmetic dentistry gives you a stunning smile post-procedure and can help you appear and feel healthier.
Teeth whitening. Teeth whitening is the most popular cosmetic dental treatment in the world. At Forster Dental Centre we offer an array of tooth whitening options, including in chair teeth whitening and at-home tooth whitening kits.
Not all teeth are good candidates for whitening, and some people prefer take-home treatments to in chair, and vice-versa. If you want whiter teeth for a more attractive smile and increased self-esteem, make an appointment for a consultation, today!
Teeth straightening. Not only are crooked, poorly spaced, or uneven teeth unattractive, they can also harm your dental health. At Forster Dental Centre we have an answer. We offer Invisalign, a teeth-straightening technique that uses clear, removable aligners that your dentists will custom mould to fit your teeth correctly.
Perhaps the most significant benefit of using Invisalign is that the aligners are practically invisible, so for those who are self-conscious about traditional metal braces, clear braces are a more aesthetically pleasing option.
For some conditions, traditional braces are a better choice, and we offer those as well. Traditional braces cannot be removed but are now less visible thanks to modern dentistry.
Veneers. Are your teeth marred by stains, chipping, fractures, irregular shape, or small gaps? Porcelain veneers can help! Porcelain veneers are attached to the surfaces of the teeth to mask minor imperfections.
They are made of tooth-coloured material and look like, or better than, natural teeth. Each veneer is customised to your personal measurements, ultra-thin, and durable. They are designed and manufactured to emulate the appearance and performance of natural teeth.
Cosmetic dental treatments improve your smile and boost your self-esteem while increasing strength, integrity, durability, and health.
The smiles we create at Forster Dental Centre change appearances and lives. Yes, we make our patients’ smiles more esthetically pleasing. But when our patients leave our office and return to their daily lives, the real change takes places.
Lives can be transformed. Many of our patients gain self-confidence, which makes an enormous difference in everyday life.
The studies we have mentioned, and many others, show that new and restored smiles make people feel younger and more confident, improve the ability to communicate, increase sex appeal, and offer more chances to build positive professional and personal relationships.
