Many surveys have made the claim that roughly 50% of people believe a smile is a person’s most memorable feature. It’s the thing you remember most when you meet someone for the first time and helps inform you how you feel about that person.
Think of someone you know who has a great smile. It displays their teeth, reaches their eyes and reveals the warmth of their personality, right? What does your smile say about you? Is it open and friendly, or does it give out a signal that you’re trying to hide something from others? If it’s the latter, could this be because you’re trying to conceal your imperfect teeth?
Many people who feel embarrassed about their teeth inadvertently only ever offer a tight lipped smile in order to conceal them. This speaks volumes to the smile recipient about what sort of person you might be, even if what they’re thinking is not true at all.
Could you be giving a false first impression? We can help. Here at the Lion Dental Practice in Stourbridge, we are experts in smile makeovers. We will work carefully with an individual to correct whatever aspects of their teeth are worrying them. Here are our top tips to achieving a smile of which you can be proud:
- Fix your broken teeth. Sharp edges, cracks and chips are noticeable and eat away at your self-confidence. They’re also incredibly easy to correct. We offer restorative treatments in the form of dental veneers and crowns. These porcelain coverings will help your teeth look as good as new!
- Replace missing teeth. Not only will getting a tooth implant; our best selling permanent prosthesis, vastly improve your smile, but it will also prevent jawbone atrophy. This is a condition that occurs naturally when you lose teeth and don’t replace them. Jawbone atrophy can have a resulting negative effect on your whole facial appearance, not just your smile. Numerous missing teeth can be easily replaced with bridges and implant supported dentures.
- Teeth discolour naturally with age and as we get older we tend to accumulate stains as well. To brighten your teeth and remove the stains, why not try a tooth whitening treatment? Whiter teeth should help make you look younger and healthier.
- Straighten your teeth. Whether you’ve always had crooked teeth, or your teeth have shifted as you’ve got older, orthodontic braces can move your teeth into a more attractive alignment. This will not only improve your smile but also make keeping your teeth clean easier. Straight teeth rarely have hard to reach to the surfaces. The braces we offer here in Stourbridge are Invisalign clear trays, the translucent brackets and wires of Six Month Smiles and fixed braces. Our treatment is discreet and effective
To further enhance your smile, we also offer non-invasive cosmetic treatments in the form of lip fillers and dermal fillers. Dermal fillers will get rid of smokers lines, while fillers injected into the lips and lip borders will give you plumper, more luscious lips. We will work with you to achieve the lip shape, volume and symmetry you desire.
Want to know why having a smile that leaves a lasting impression is important? It’s because research has found owners of great smiles are more likely to go further in their careers and be happier in their love lives.
