The next time you are near a mirror or the next time you take a selfie, take a close look at your smile. What do you see?
Do you see your pearly whites, or are your lips closed to conceal your teeth? If your teeth are visible, is there anything you would like to change about their appearance?
If you want whiter teeth, straighter teeth, or teeth that are different in another way, then you are not alone. Every year, millions of people create better-looking smiles with cosmetic dentistry.
That includes many patients who visit our dentist office in Sand Springs, OK. We have a range of cosmetic services that can help you create the smile of your dreams.
Aesthetic Benefits Of Cosmetic Dentistry
In one way or another, cosmetic dentistry has been around for centuries. Much like fashion or hair styles, what has been considered a pretty smile has changed with time and culture.
For example, the ancient Mayans drilled holes in the front of their teeth. This is was so they could embed gemstones in their smiles. Other cultures used gold as a way to show status.
In our culture today, the ideal smile is epitomized in what is sometimes called the “Hollywood” smile.
We’ve all seen it on the big screen at the movies, on the small screen at home, and on the covers of celebrity magazines.
The stars’ teeth are sparklingly white. They are perfectly straight, and they are evenly spaced. Their teeth all appear to be sized proportionally to one another, and they have a good tooth-to-gum ratio.
The reality is few people — including famous actors — have naturally perfect smiles. The services we offer are likely the same ones many celebrities have used to improve their smiles, too.
Teeth whitening, dental veneers, and orthodontics are just a few examples of the cosmetic services we offer at our Sand Springs, OK, dentist office.
To find out which service will work for you, just schedule an appointment with Dr. Emami to get started.
Social Benefits Of Cosmetic Dentistry
You may be thinking, “I’m not a Hollywood star, and I don’t really want to be one.”
That may be true, but you don’t have to work in front of a camera to enjoy the benefits of a great smile. Having a nice smile can have real benefits in our everyday lives, no matter what you do for a living.
Surveys have shown that smiles are one of the things that people remember the most about meeting someone new. What kind of impression are you making with your smile?
If you are embarrassed by your teeth, you may try to hide them. As a result, you may be reluctant to smile when meeting new people.
From a professional standpoint, this can affect you in many ways. In a recent survey by Kelton Research, people with nice smiles were considered friendlier, more successful, and more trustworthy.
From a personal standpoint, a nice smile also can make you seem more attractive, too.
Emotional Benefits Of Cosmetic Dentistry
At Galleria of Smiles, we want every patient to have a smile that they are confident about sharing with the world. That could include feeling comfortable about posting a selfie on social media, going out on a date with someone new, or even agreeing to a job interview.
We can’t tell you how you should feel about your smile. However, we can tell how we have seen cosmetic dentistry provide a boost to many of our patients.
We’ve had patients who were so ashamed of their teeth that they would cover their mouths anytime they spoke. Other patients would look away when they talked so their teeth were less visible.
That was how they acted when they first came to our dentist office in Sand Springs, OK. After talking to our dentist, they learned that we only wanted to help. We were not judging them because of their smiles.
By listening and learning what they wanted to change, we developed a plan to give those patients smile makeovers.
Some treatments are faster than others, but in many cases, the reactions were similar when people saw their new smiles. Many could not stop smiling. Many spoke with their heads high and with a renewed sense of confidence, too.
