How are your New Year’s resolutions going so far? Maybe you’ve been frequenting the gym, or perhaps you’ve created a smart plan to reach your financial goals. Your efforts deserve a big commendation! However, you might consider adding another resolution to your list: Boost your confidence by improving your smile. A dentist in Rexburg is here to talk about how a beautiful smile can affect your life and how you can own the teeth of your dreams.

The Effects of a Beautiful Smile

Straight, white teeth look amazing, but that is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to how owning an attractive smile can benefit you. Additional perks include:

  • You will look younger. Tooth discoloration and other aesthetic flaws are often associated with old age. Attractive teeth can turn back the clock on your smile and detract attention from signs of aging at other areas around your face.
  • You will seem more approachable and more successful. People are naturally drawn to individuals who own confident, sincere, and beautiful smiles.
  • Your health may benefit. Research indicates that smiling can lower your heart rate and your blood pressure. When you love the way your smile looks, you are likely to smile more often.

Achieving Your Dream Smile

Good dental health habits, such as regular brushing and flossing, can do much for your smile’s appearance, but they cannot fix misalignment, broken teeth, severe discoloration, or other serious aesthetic flaws. To correct such issues, you need the help of a qualified cosmetic dentist.

During your consultation, your dentist will evaluate your oral health and talk to you about your goals and expectations for treatment. Then, they might recommend that you undergo one of the following services:

  • Teeth whitening. Professional whitening treatments are much more effective than any OTC whitening products. Most dental practices offer both in-office and at-home whitening options.
  • Porcelain veneers. Porcelain veneers are thin pieces of porcelain that get placed on the fronts of your natural teeth. They can disguise practically any imperfection, including discoloration, minor misalignment, chips, teeth that are too small, and more.
  • Gum recontouring. Excess or uneven gum tissue can detract from your teeth’s natural beauty. Gum recontouring gently trims the gums to produce a more proportionate smile.
  • Smile makeover/virtual smile design. If you have multiple or complex dental problems that affect your smile’s appearance, you might benefit from a total smile makeover, which may include multiple treatments. The process begins with the help of advanced virtual smile design software, which can give you a realistic preview of how your makeover will change your appearance. 

A beautiful smile is a powerful thing! Your cosmetic dentist can help you achieve your dream look in 2020.
