What is the first thing you notice about someone? Their hair or their shoes? Glasses? Most people actually notice their teeth, whether they would like to admit it or not. This is because teeth are an indication of multiple things: health, status, ability. Having good teeth is more than a pretty smile in today's world; it is also a key indicator of who you are as a person.
We Live in A Society (of Teeth)
Your teeth can greatly affect your life in two ways; the way you perceive yourself, and the way others perceive you. Having bad teeth comes from a variety of factors, not all of which are under your control. Continuing to have bad teeth is your responsibility to find a solution for. If you've ever not smiled for a picture because you were afraid to show your teeth, chances are, other people have noticed. Most often, they notice because you not smiling is not part of who you are naturally. Further, studies have shown that there are a few factors which interviewers see and make judgements on immediately—one of those factors is the condition of the prospect's teeth. So clearly, there are connections both in our heads and outside of us which point to the impacts of bad teeth.
How We Can Help
Depending on the issue, there are a huge number of treatments and options available for the average person. If you have an overbite, we can correct it with braces or night guards. If you suffer from grinding while you sleep, we can find the reason and give a solution. If you have cavities or chipped teeth, we have tooth-colored resins to fill in those missing parts. Or, you can always go for a full veneer and look your best every single day. Having bad teeth doesn't have to mean that your life doesn't get off the ground. It impacts you socially, but there are those (us!) who can help get you through to the other side and beyond it. Reach out today to discuss your options.
