Cosmetic Dentistry has more to Offer than You May Think
- Posted on: Jan 15 2018
For ages, humans have tried to develop ways to make teeth look their best. Everything from tooth loss to discoloration has been concerned that frustrate the human race from the beginning of modern times. And that’s a long time. A great deal of effort has gone into the development and refinement of safe, effective dental treatments, and now we’ve got them right at our fingertips. We routinely take advantage of them with personal treatment provided to patients of our Houston dental practice.
Surprise! This is What Cosmetic Dentistry May Do for You!
The expectation that patients have is that cosmetic dentistry will make their smile look better. This is a blanket under which several benefits wait to be revealed. When you get the smile had in mind, you gain:
- A reflection you appreciate. Many of the patients we treat like their smile alright; they just want it to be better. They’ve envisioned what their smile could look like, and that is what they expect to see. When they look in the mirror (we love this part!), patients are often taken back by just how much their face has improved, even from a small change in teeth.
- Better oral health. Cosmetic treatments do not directly improve oral health. What research has shown is that people who obtain their dream smile then want to do everything they can to support it for life. They brush and floss regularly, and may even rinse their mouth throughout the day. They see the dentist twice a year and follow any advice they are given to care for their smile. The goal may be to keep teeth looking good, but all this additional TLC is also going to have a positive effect on health. Win-win!
- A better life! Can a better life stem from bringing out the best in the smile? Research points to the affirmative. In one study, researchers discovered that employers might lean more toward hiring a person with an attractive smile than not, so long as they were also qualified. People with an attractive smile are regarded as being friendlier, more successful, and even wealthy. These perceptions pay off in both professional and social situations.
