Could Cosmetic Dentistry Help You At Work?
Who are the most successful and likable people that you know? It could be one of your co-workers. It could someone who has done work for you or someone you have worked for. It may even be someone you only met because of work he or she did for someone you know.
What do all those people have in common? In many cases, they have a sense of self-confidence and an easy-going smile.
You may not have thought much about it, but our smiles have a big effect on how others perceive us and how we perceive ourselves. It’s also why millions of people turn to cosmetic dental services every year.
At Beaumont Family Dentistry, we offer a wide range of cosmetic services for all the patients from throughout Central Kentucky who visit our dentist offices in Lexington.
We might be able to help you, too.
What Is Cosmetic Dentistry?
The American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry defines it this as dentistry “aimed at creating a positive change to your teeth and to your smile.”
Whether we know it or not, we see examples of cosmetic dentistry every single day.
If you watched television or a movie today, then you probably saw an image of someone or more than one person who has undergone a cosmetic dental procedure.
There’s a reason people talk about a “Hollywood smile,” and there’s ample evidence that many celebrities’ teeth didn’t always look the way they do in magazine photos.
The thing is cosmetic dentistry isn’t some exclusive service reserved for the rich and famous, and you don’t have to go to Hollywood to get it.
It’s available right here, in Lexington, at all three of our convenient locations.
How Cosmetic Dentistry Can Help You
We want to address some of the ways cosmetic dentistry could help you before we discuss some of the specific services we offer.
First and foremost, improving your smile can improve your self-esteem. We’ve seen it happen more times than we can count.
A patient who is ashamed of his or her teeth comes into our office looking for help. In some cases, these patients have been so embarrassed that they keep their heads down when speaking so is is hard for other people to see their teeth. They never smiled, and they just seem dejected.
After they complete their procedures, they hold their heads high. They flash big, bright smiles, and it clearly changes their self-perception.
Second, it can change how other people perceive you. Think again about the people you know who are successful and likable (since those things seem to go hand-in-hand). Their smiles may be a part of their success and their likability.
Kelton Research conducted a survey on how our appearance affects other people. They found that smiles have a big influence.
As an example of this, 73 percent of respondents said they are more likely to trust someone with a nice smile. Likewise, 58 percent said people with straight teeth are more likely to be successful, and 45 percent said good teeth make some more likely to get a job offer.
All that is to say, having nicer teeth could make people see you as more trustworthy, more successful, and more employable.
What Services We Offer
No matter what you would like to change, we believe we have a cosmetic service that can help you.
Here’s a short list of services we offer and what they can do for you:
Veneers can make your teeth whiter. They can make your teeth look straighter. They also can be used to hide gaps in your teeth and to cover crowded teeth. Veneers can be used to repair chipped and broken teeth, too.
▶︎ Teeth Whitening
This one is pretty straightforward. Professional teeth whitening products like you will get at a dentist office will make your teeth noticeably whiter than anything you can buy at the grocery store.
▶︎ Gum contouring
If you have a “gummy” smile, we can remove excess gum tissue so your teeth are more visible when you are happy.
▶︎ Tooth contouring
Some people have teeth that are misshapen in some way or another. Removing part of those teeth and reshaping them can help them blend in more naturally with your overall smile.
Orthodontics like Invisalign and FastBraces® can give you straighter teeth in less time than traditional braces.
