Happy New Year finally – say goodbye to 2020! It’s time to make those commitments to make your life better. For starters, eat the black-eyed peas!! More importantly, make this the time to take care of the things that are holding you back. One of the most powerful is your smile!
There’s so much power in a smile, but that can be both good and bad! Studies clearly show people embarrassed of their smile are much more likely to hide behind it. Our self-esteem and self-worth is tied to our smile, and this creates powerful leverage to help live our lives! The reality is half of people feel a smile is the most memorable feature after meeting someone. Even more importantly, the studies have shown again and again that a person with an attractive smile is seen as more. More intelligent. More attractive. More successful. More sensitive. More interesting. Happier. Healthier. Nothing even comes close to the impact a great smile can make!
If you aren’t proud of your smile, there are many things you can do. The data has shown that about 75% of people feel an unattractive smile will negatively impact their career success. Even more impressive, 99.7% say a beautiful smile is important to making friends and finding a romantic connection. Something as simple as brightening your teeth and whitening your smile will often have a dramatic impact on how you feel. A brighter whiter smile gives the impression that you are younger and healthier, and according to studies, also smarter! However, the real key is to change how you feel on the inside. For many people, simply having a brighter, whiter smile is a huge step toward a more positive self-image and a happier life!
Another incredibly powerful way to create a more beautiful smile is to line the teeth up evenly. With a little time wearing invisalign or in braces, the teeth can be lined up like they were meant to be. This results in a much more attractive smile and that will boost confidence in work and in personal lives, but it does so much more! Even minor crowding creates infections in the gum tissue. Minor crowding also creates significant stress, leading to wear and cracks in your teeth. This progressive wear and breakdown of the teeth can also lead to migraine type pain and even life-threatening issues like Obstructive Sleep Apnea. Straighter teeth is prettier, but it is also so much healthier too!
Veneers & Smile Makeovers
Once the teeth have been worn down or so discolored that whitening alone can’t fix the smile, there are still options! Porcelain veneers are incredibly strong and very thin shells that can build your smile back to create that beautiful smile that you have always wanted. These are designed to echo and enhance the features of your face and have a powerful impact on how the world sees you! When we meet people, the most often noticed features are the eyes and mouth, and when these all compliment each other, that person is seen as more healthy, attractive, and intelligent. This creates success in work and in our personal lives!
If you have ever smiles with your lips closed, there are options for you. If you cover your mouth when you talk, there are options for you. If you look away when you laugh, there are options for you. Being able to smile with confidence; to smile out loud, is a key step toward an incredible year. If your smile isn’t what it could be, we would love to help you get it there!
