Your teeth are a big part of your identity. You may not realize it, but all through your life, you’ve internalized how your smile makes you feel: the gap between your front two teeth, the narrowness, the uneven sizes, that one tooth that overlaps its neighbor, the color. Before you realize it, you’re keeping your mouth closed when you smile and you’re guarded when you talk. You’re even self-conscious when you eat with anyone else!
If your teeth are otherwise healthy, dental veneers are a great option worth considering. At Summit Dental Center, you’ll find custom veneers and cosmetic dental options that can change your life!
Give Yourself a Confidence Boost
Being able to smile when you want to, with poise and assurance, is one of the keys to confidence.
Even if you find yourself in the position where you have to “fake it till you make it,” a confident smile is one of the ways to get there! When you can’t smile because of the appearance of your teeth, you let yourself down and may even wind up avoiding social situations (not to mention having your photograph taken).
Summit Dental Center can help you create custom veneers for your smile to change the way you feel about yourself, and how your teeth look. A makeover for your mouth is the perfect way to enhance your self-confidence!
Make A Great Professional Impression
Whether you work full-time, part-time, in an office, or at home, there are times you need to make a professional impression.
A great impression shows that you take care of yourself and take pride in your appearance. It shows confidence, professionalism and warmth. When your teeth are crooked or yellowed, even if you brush and floss like you’re supposed to, it can hold you back.
With micro-thin porcelain veneers to provide the right shape to your teeth, you can smile with courage and determination. You’ll be more dynamic on video calls. Live presentations become charged with positivity from all those neurotransmitters flooding your brain. Even your interpersonal relationships with supervisors, coworkers, and your direct reports can become easier, just from being able to smile!
Need a mood boost? When was the last time you smiled? A smile, grin, or laugh can deliver a quick burst of happy neurotransmitters like serotonin, dopamine, and endorphins. It’s no wonder selfies are so popular!
The mix of chemicals released into your brain each time you smile creates an environment that’s conducive to lowering blood pressure and stress levels. Simultaneously, they relax your body and even provide relief from pain!
Not smiling much because of how your teeth look? A closed-mouth smile is not as effective…and the effects on other people are diminished, too. When you smile at others, they are more likely to smile back at a genuine, teeth-showing grin. Not showing your teeth is associated with a forced emotion, or even deceptiveness.
Fortunately, dental veneers cover the front of your teeth, masking the ones you don’t like, giving you a fabulous smile you’ll be happy to show off to friends, family, and strangers alike. And with all that smiling, you can bet you’ll be happier and more relaxed than you’ve been in a long time!
Symbiotic Smiling and the Relationship Factor
Your smile can even impact your relationships.
Friends, family, coworkers, the other PTA moms…anyone you interact with is affected by your smile or lack thereof! People are more likely to imitate the facial expressions they see and interact with. So, when you smile at your spouse or the barista at Starbucks, they are probably going to smile back.
The same biochemical reaction happens for them, but the difference is that it happens as a result of you smiling first. The end result is that people begin to associate you with uplifted, positive feelings and a happier mood. In turn, this smooths out relationships, helping you get along better and have more meaningful, upbeat conversations and connections. Smiling can become a beautiful cycle, if you let it!
Now, all of this happens whether you think you have a beautiful smile or not. Even a yellowed, crooked smile produces endorphins, serotonin, and dopamine. But if that’s what you think your smile looks like, you’re probably not showing it off. And if that’s the case, you’re not getting the full benefits.
The great thing about veneers is that it takes a relatively short amount of time to feel like your smile is great!
