The benefits of a beautiful smile

A healthy, bright smile can improve your confidence and foster healthier social and work relationships. This is mainly because people are drawn to those who are happy and positive. A smile can also make you seem open, encouraging others to interact.

Research showed that 84% of Americans between the ages of 18-50 believed that people with beautiful white smiles were attractive, honest, and friendly. This same study showed that one-third of the participants preferred to date someone with healthy teeth as they believed that people with white teeth were healthy and followed good hygiene practices.

However, not everyone is blessed with a beautiful white smile. If you have neglected your teeth and are now looking at improving your smile, there are many options your dentist can offer you, to help you achieve a beautiful smile.

If you have missing, misshapen, or damaged teeth your dentist can offer dental implants, veneers, crowns, or a bridge that will improve the appearance of your teeth. Teeth whitening procedures are also a wise investment as they will brighten your teeth, giving you a healthy, white smile.

Maintaining good oral habits like brushing your teeth twice a day and flossing before bed can reduce the appearance of cavities, plaque, and staining. Visiting your dentist twice a year is also a good habit to assist your dentist to identify any issues quickly, reducing further damage.

The Elite Dental Group offers a wide range of dental services from cosmetic dentistry, oral surgery to tooth whitening procedures in a clean, friendly setting. Their patient-focused approach will help you decide on the best procedures to achieve that perfect, white smile.
