Cosmetic Dentistry

An attractive face is not achieved without an attractive smile. You can always cover up your blemished skin with concealers and make-up. You can also cheat your figure with your choice of clothing. But, you can never hide damaged teeth or an unattractive smile. It will always show whenever you smile or talk. If you are not happy with your teeth, then you are always self-conscious about your smile and your appearance.

When do you need to go to a cosmetic dentist?

Perhaps you may never know why you have to take a trip to the cosmetic dentist’s office if you are really not particular with how your teeth look like. Here are some indicators which you might use why you need a cosmetic dentist and if you are in need of some cosmetic dentistry and cosmetic dental procedures:

  • Covering your smile. This is true when you are not confident with showing your teeth to others. You will never enjoy a full smile or a great laughter with feelings of insecurity.
  • Mumbling when speaking. This is because you do not want to show your teeth when you speak. The result would be inaudible words which may lead to misunderstandings and give the wrong impression to people.
  • Difficulty in chewing. This is a real frustration when you are served with good food and you have no choice but to decline because of your bad teeth condition.
  • Soft food diet over a period of time. If you have been on a soft diet for a long time because of pain and discomfort of your teeth, your nutrition is compromised. Plus, you can never enjoy great company and great food altogether.
  • Avoiding the camera. You become camera shy when you know you will not look good in the shots because of your teeth. Too many precious moments are needed to capture and your smile is all worth it.
  • Not getting your desired job. Maybe your self confidence is low because of the condition of your teeth that you are afraid to even apply for the jobs you deserve and just accept jobs that are beneath you. Or maybe you are not being hired because the appearance of your smile.

Your life is more fun if you have a great smile with perfect and healthy teeth.

    I would love to have that perfect smile but just can’t afford it. I even have to fly to my native country the Philippines to get my teeth cleaned. My hubby got his cosmetic dentistry done there as well last winter. The cost of the whole procedure paid off our trip, plus we got to enjoy a tropical vacation.

      Yes, I understand that cosmetic dentistry can get expensive depending on what you have done. Just make sure where ever you do get it done, they do good work. It is very easy to mess up your teeth.

    This is a very informative article, because I never show my teeth when I smile, but it isn’t due to any possible embarrassment. Although my teeth are not straight and I have gaps between my molar teeth, I was never taught to bear teeth while smiling.

      Why not? That’s what make your smile more beautiful. I believe a full smile tells us so much more that a half smile, not just the attractiveness of it but even the warmth and personality. I hope that you will try from now on to smile more and fully and you’ll see that it will make you feel so much better.

    This is true, and I found myself in this post. I am normally a student of journalism and often i meet with cameras. I have a healthy but yellow teeth. All of this is vitamin deficiency. I’m scared to go to the dentist. First, because there are plenty of people who are just abusing of your teeth and second is too expensive for me. Thank you for this, helpful information on this post.

    I never brushed regularly when I was growing up so I lost a lot of the protective enamel on my teeth. As a result, no matter how much I brush I can’t get my teeth very white at all. This article has shed some light on my situation – thank you!

    I am having this exact problem, I’ve had this problem for a long time now. I am ready to be confident about my smile. Im tired of covering my mouth when i laugh or having to eat soft foods because of my bad teeth. I just can’t afford the type of treatment I really need for my teeth.

      Kiara, I totally understand. But you can work out a payment plan that fits your budget.

    This article is so “spot on”, its as thought they used my dental needs as a template to outline all the things described. The loss of confidence can be totally debilitating in social situations. It is very encouraging to know that I can address my dental needs in an affordable way that won’t over burden my finances.

    I am a nighttime grinder. I also chew tobacco. My teeth have been bad for a while now. To the point where my gums bleed when I eat certain foods, like apples. I do hide my smile. I will definitely be doing some teeth whitening procedures at the very least. Thank you!

      Hi Matt. Thanks for sharing your story. I would like to recommend that you visit your dentist so they can also check your gums for gum disease. If your gums are bleeding, that is a sign of gum disease. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to ask me.
