Everyone knows about the benefits of cosmetic dentistry on the physical appearance. Your smile is often the very first thing people notice about you. A beautiful smile does wonders for a person’s confidence and self-esteem. But there are benefits beyond just looking good. Negative issues involving the teeth can result in severe, chronic headaches. This is because of an imbalance in the force of the bite caused by the misalignment of the teeth. The resulting pain can carry into the nerves and muscles of the head and neck, resulting in headaches and other aches and pains. Of course there is also the risk of tooth pain and infection once the deterioration of the teeth becomes advanced. Ultimately the tooth or teeth can be lost, creating a need for more intensive dental work. Cosmetic dentistry performed by a licensed Dentist such as Dr. Cliff Cook at Broadwater Dental can eliminate these problems while at the same time instantly improving your appearance with a perfectly aligned, pearly white smile.
Another interesting fact regarding the positive results of cosmetic dentistry involves the way others treat you before and after cosmetic dentistry corrections. Numerous studies conducted and reported in the American Journal of Social Psychology have shown overwhelmingly that people who are attractive, and pointedly those with a perfectly aligned, white smile are responded to in a much more positive and open manner than are those with dental issues.
Of course a more attractive smile makes a person feel more confident, and this in turn can result in a more outgoing, open attitude toward others and a more pleasant personality. These traits make a person more pleasant to be around. A pretty smile alone may boost confidence, but the overall benefits of cosmetic dentistry are so much more extensive. From a physical health standpoint and a social standpoint, cosmetic dentistry is beneficial in several ways that will vastly improve the lives of those who elect to have it done.
