You have an important interview for a job you really want. You think you’re fully ready and qualified for the position, but you’re still nervous. You could use some more confidence going into the interview, particularly when it comes to your smile. Well, now’s the time to get the treatment you need with your cosmetic dentist to bring your teeth up to par. That way, you can walk in completely self-assured, give the interviewer a firm handshake, and convince them that you’re the right candidate for the job.
How Your Smile Affects Your Confidence
When you feel self-conscious about you the way your teeth look, you tend to want to hide them from view. That means you can smile less widely or not as often, which, in turn, can impact your mood and overall health. Research has found that those who smile more often tend to be happier and healthier. By addressing flaws in your teeth, you give yourself a reason to smile more often.
Over the years, studies have repeatedly shown the power of a confident, attractive smile. For example, given the choice between a picture of someone with a straight face with full makeup and a picture of someone with a smile with no makeup, people preferred the smiling face. Also, people with an beautiful smile are generally perceived as more trustworthy and successful. A healthy, good-looking smile can attract the kind of positive attention you’re looking for.
How You Can Improve Your Smile
With cosmetic dental procedures, you can enhance the appearance of your teeth and, therefore, give your confidence a huge boost. Here are two services that your cosmetic dentist can provide to help you want to flash your beautiful pearly whites with more gusto.
Over time and with exposure to darkly pigmented foods and drinks, your teeth can appear yellow or dull. But the good news is that you can fix it! Over-the-counter whitening solutions promise dramatic results but fall short. Through your dentist, you can get a take-home whitening kit that uses a strong gel to brighten your smile by up to ten shades over the course of two weeks. This treatment allows you to see a noticeable change in your teeth’s whiteness giving you more confidence to let them show.
For those who have multiple flaws that they’d like to address, porcelain veneers may be the cosmetic solution to choose. From gaps between teeth to chips to misshapen teeth to discoloration that whitening just can’t address, porcelain veneers can correct many imperfections. These thin ceramic shells are durable, resist stains, and look like natural tooth enamel, giving your teeth the perfect look you’re wanting.
In the end, the way you feel about your smile matters. It can help or hurt your self-esteem and potentially how others view you. By addressing the flaws you don’t like about your teeth, you can remove what could be holding you back from complete confidence. Don’t wait to feel better about yourself—contact your cosmetic dentist to get started with your transformation today!
