One of the things I love most about my job is the positive impact a smile can have on a person’s life. I’ve had patients come in for a smile makeover and leave happier than they’ve ever been. I’ve also had patients call just to thank me and tell me how their new smile is improving their lives every day.
There are so many benefits to smiling. A big grin is the universal display of happiness, warmth, and openness. If you’re constantly worried about the appearance of your smile, you could be holding yourself back from a more fulfilled life. Let’s look at some of the positive effects smiling can have on your life.
First Impressions. A new acquaintance will remember more about your face than they will about the rest of your body; including your clothes, shoes, and jewelry. This means your smile is the most important part of your outfit!
A bright, confident smile gives a better first impression than a cautious, closed-mouth smile. Your smile can either portray friendly openness or chilly reservation, even if it’s all unintentional.
Improved Relationships. It’s been shown that relationships are one of the single most important aspects of a person’s life. Meaningful relationships are linked to a longer lifespan, reduced stress levels, and improved overall health.
A beautiful smile makes you appear more approachable and attractive. These qualities have big impacts on the important relationships in your life. If you’re hiding your teeth, you may seem less friendly, open, or honest.
Whether you are meeting a new client, presenting to co-workers, or asking someone new out to dinner; a straight smile will improve your interactions with others and help forge the path to progress through the bonds you create with others.
A Tool for Success. A straight, healthy smiles makes you seem more trustworthy, intelligent, and confident. This can make a big difference in getting the job you want, making the sale, or accurately representing the face of your business.
I once had a patient come to me after her smile makeover ecstatic to report that her company’s sales had increased and her business improved dramatically right after her new smile took center stage. This is a perfect example of the power of smile aesthetics.
Paths to a New Smile. There are many different ways to create the smile of your dreams. Here at Elite Smiles, we offer a variety of solutions that fit your unique needs.
Invisalign: The Invisalign system is the most discreet way to correct your smile over time. This treatment uses a series of clear aligners that are changed out every one to two weeks to move teeth into place over the course of a year or so. Aligner trays must be worn 22 hours a day to be truly effective, so it takes commitment.
Six-Month Smiles- This is a faster way to achieve your new smile. Six-Month Smiles is a system that uses traditional orthodontic methods at an expedited pace. The brackets and wires are the same color as your teeth and more discreet than traditional metal braces.
Veneers- Porcelain veneers can fill in gaps, correct the shape of teeth, or make your teeth appear whiter. Veneers are thin jackets of durable porcelain that fit perfectly over the surface of the tooth. These can drastically improve the appearance of your smile without the need for orthodontic measures.
