The reasons for this were many, but most reasons came down to how they felt about how they appeared to others and how others responded to them.

When was the last time you checked out the appearance of your smile and teeth? Do you feel confident smiling broadly or laughing and showing off your teeth? In a recent study by the American Academy of Dentistry (AACD), 92% of respondents say an attractive smile is an important social asset, yet only 50% of adults are satisfied with their own smile.

Have your teeth become worn down, stained or uneven over the years? Do you believe your smile is at its best? It does seem odd that so many people carefully chose their clothing yet ignore the appearance of their potentially most winning asset: their smile!

An unsightly smile can lower one’s self-image, while a beautiful smile can transform an average face into one that is radiant and inviting. If you find that your smile is not as attractive as you would like it to be, maybe cosmetic dentistry is for you. Generally painless, modern cosmetic dentistry can transform your smile. Newer techniques in whitening, bonding, veneers, invisible braces and implant dentistry can not only make your smile look great, but they can also restore your mouth for a lifetime of great dental health.

So next time you check yourself out in mirror, check out your smile. Take the time to think about if cosmetic dentistry might give you a reason to give the world a great big smile, and watch the world smile back!
