• Cosmetic Dentistry

  • The best way to make a great first impression is with a good looking smile. You can trust us to transform your smile and give you the confidence in your oral health.

    Though cosmetic dentistry focuses on the aesthetics of your smile, it may improve your overall oral health as well. Even if you are not aware of it, an askew tooth or overbite may be throwing off your balance and be putting extra stress on your teeth or jaw muscles. Cosmetic dentistry may alleviate some pain and discomfort you have been experiencing due to improper alignment.

    There are many other benefits to improving the appearance of your smile. Some of the positive outcomes of cosmetic dentistry include:

    Improved Mood

    When you love your smile you are likely to show it off more often. Studies have shown that the simple act of smiling can put you, and others around you, in a better mood. Scientific American published an article that goes over how smiling can improve your mood, the mood of others, and even decrease feelings of pain. The more you smile the better you and everyone else will feel!

    Friendly Environment

    Per Psychology Today, smiles are contagious and make people feel better. When you’re proud of your teeth you’re likely to smile more and in turn influence others around you to smile more as well. Their smiles will make them feel happier and create a welcoming and friendly environment.

    Healthier Overall

    A good looking smile is usually a good working smile. By balancing your bite and evening out the tension in your mouth, you allow it to function better. It’s important to your overall health for your mouth to function properly. If you are not properly chewing your food long enough because your teeth, gums, or jaw are in pain, you might not be absorbing all the nutrients your food has to offer. When food is chewed longer, it is broken down into smaller particles that are absorbed quicker by the body. Also, the longer you chew the longer it will take you to finish eating. Research has shown that eating slowly can help you eat less and, in turn, increase weight loss or reduce weight gain. In a study conducted by a professor at the University of Rhode Island, people actually ate around ten percent less calories when they ate slower. Obesity is a health problem that affects many across the world and can have irreversible repercussions. With a proper functioning mouth, you can help yourself live a healthier, and potentially, longer life.

    Success

    A great smile can help you focus and succeed in life. Professors at the University of California, Berkeley conducted an experiment in which they analyzed pictures of women and checked in with them at various stages of their lives. It turns out that the women who had expressions that seemed to reflect more positive emotions also ended up feeling more capable, focused, organized, goal-oriented, and less prone to negativity. Your beaming smile can help you lead the life you always wanted.
