The most obvious advantage of a nice looking, healthy smile is the fact that it makes you look more attractive, but there are much wider implications associated with the look of your smile. Nowadays, many people are conscious about their appearance and the way you look affects the way you feel and the way you behave.
Confidence and self-esteem
Confidence is key when it comes to many things in life, from approaching someone you fancy in a bar to going for a new job or a promotion and many people find that their confidence is linked to their looks; we are all familiar with having an ‘ugly day’ and you constantly feel awkward when you smile or you are drawn to flaws in your smile, this is bound to affect your confidence.
Effects of a bad smile
If you were bullied at school for having teeth that stick out or you hate your crooked teeth and dread meeting new people and smiling for the camera, this can really hold you back in life. Polls and surveys also suggest that having bad teeth is one of the biggest turn-offs in a prospective partner. People who were bullied often carry negative thoughts around with them for a long time and it can really affect their self-esteem.
What can be done?
Thankfully if you have bad teeth there is no need to panic because there are many dental treatments that can help to improve the look of your smile and even completely transform your pearly whites. From cosmetic dental treatments such as tooth whitening, veneers and cosmetic bonding, to modern orthodontic procedures, such as the Inman Aligner treatment, Six Month Smiles and Damon braces, there is a solution for every problem and in a matter of weeks or months you could have the perfect smile. If it becomes a real issue the best option would be to look for your nearest Invisible braces group and go for a consultation.
