New Year’s are always a time for new beginnings. Many people make resolutions with the intention of improving their health.
It’s the reason people start new diets, join gyms, and even change their clothes or hairstyles.
It’s also a reason you may want to consider a smile makeover in 2019. Cosmetic dentistry can be beneficial for your oral and overall health, and it can have mental health benefits as well.
We’ve seen the difference a new smile has made in the lives of countless patients at our Johnson City dentist office. Dr. Jerry Farrell could help you create a better, more confident smile. To learn more, start by calling 607-304-3993 to schedule a consultation.
See the Difference for Yourself
When you look at your teeth in the mirror or in pictures, what would you change if you could?
Do you dream of straighter teeth? Do you wish for a brighter, whiter smile? Do you want to correct a chipped or broken tooth or close a gap between your teeth?
More important than that is how you feel about your smile. Do you show your smile freely and without a care, or do you try to hide your teeth by keeping your lips firmly pressed together when someone takes your picture?
We’ve had many patients who used to hide their teeth behind their hands when they first came to visit us. Today, those same patients hold their heads hide and speak and smile because they don’t have any concerns about people seeing their pretty teeth.
When you feel good about your smile, it can boost your confidence in many situations. You can apply for that job that you want. You can go out on a date again. You feel good meeting new people in personal and professional settings.
Improve Your Oral Health, Too
Changing the appearance of your teeth can make your smile more attractive, but many treatments are good for your health, too.
When you straighten your teeth, for example, you are better able to clean them. That makes your daily brushing and flossing more effective for removing bacteria, plaque, and food particles. This reduces your risk of developing decay or gum disease.
Fixing damaged teeth, correcting the alignment of your smile, and replacing missing teeth can help in another important way as well. By rebuilding your teeth, you can bite and chew better, too. That allows you to eat a variety of foods and get the nutrients you need to be the healthiest person you can be.
And we’ve also noticed that many patients start taking other steps to be healthier once they improve their smiles. Your smile makeover could be the beginning of your lifestyle transformation.
