Welcome to 2021! We wish you the best and brightest new year. If you’re contemplating your New Year’s resolution or are taking a pass this year, we hope you will improve your smile in 2021. Prioritizing your smile can have effects that last well beyond the calendar year.
For over 30 years, your award-winning dentist has helped thousands of patients enjoy the benefits of a better smile. He and our team can help you experience them, too, no matter what condition your smile is in now. For some, a smile improvement could be a simple, quick whitening treatment. How’s that for a fast New Year’s transformation?
Check out five surprising ways of improving your smile. If you’re ready to get started, call 317-682-0884. Consultations are free for new patients.
1. You will boost your self-esteem.
There’s nothing like a great haircut or new outfit to give you an extra boost of confidence. Likewise, a great smile will put an extra spring in your step – except it will last far longer than a haircut or an outfit.
We have heard from countless patients the life-changing effects of improving their smiles. Replacing teeth, whitening teeth, straightening teeth – these can all make a major difference in how you perceive yourself and how others perceive you.
If you have grown accustomed to covering your mouth, smiling with your lips closed, avoiding conversations, or even avoiding social events because of your smile, you don’t have to live this way. You can approach people, start conversations, laugh at someone’s joke, eat out without worrying about the menu, and more, all by having a full, bright, healthy smile.
See how we can help you boost your smile’s health and beauty and your confidence in yourself.
2. You will boost your bank account.
Your oral care at home is likely the biggest factor in preventing dental problems. If you think about it, toothpaste, toothbrushes, and dental floss are a lot less expensive than paying for dental work for cavities, gum disease, tooth infections, and other problems, some that might require ongoing care and maintenance for life. Even regular dental cleanings and exams aren’t that expensive comparatively. And one of the best benefits of routine exams is that if you do develop a problem, we can catch it before it gets more expensive and invasive to fix.
It might take an investment up front for some people to get their smiles to a place of maintenance. That’s OK. We’ll work with you and your budget to get you there.
If you have a family, just think about all the money you can save over time. You can also save your teeth as a result. With the right care, tooth loss and dental issues are preventable, not inevitable.
3. You will boost your appearance.
A clean, bright smile with no gaps is an attractive smile. That’s why so many people admire celebrity smiles. And that’s a major factor for celebrities having a youthful look. People with stained, worn teeth and missing teeth automatically add years to their smile and even overall appearance since those are signs of aging.
Regular care at home can go a long way in making your smile look good. A lot of people will need help with the flaws brushing and flossing alone can’t address. For example, you can get your teeth several shades whiter with our professional whitening, and you don’t even have to do it in our office. Look at these pictures to see how much younger you could look with pro whitening alone.
4. You will boost your peace of mind.
Have you waited a long time before going to the doctor when you’ve had pain somewhere or thought something was wrong? If so, you likely worried about the problem and worried about what the doctor might tell you.
The same is true with your dental health. Don’t live with the worry of what could be happening or that it’s too late anyway. Keep up with your smile at home and at our office, and you can get a clean bill of oral health and the peace of mind that comes with it. You won’t constantly be wondering if you have an infected tooth that needs a root canal. You won’t have to live with the inconveniences, frustrations, and pain of missing teeth.
If you need peace of mind about your smile, that’s our specialty! We treat our patients with respect and kindness, so you don’t have to worry about coming in to hear a lecture about how much you neglected your smile. We also have modern measures to keep your care as comfortable and painless as possible, such as sting-free computer-assisted anesthesia for numbing your mouth.
5. You will boost your overall health.
Many people don’t realize the close connection of your oral and overall health. Your dentist can play a major role in helping minimize health problems by taking measure to improve your smile. For example:
- Treating a tooth infection can ensure the infection doesn’t spread elsewhere in your body, such as your brain.
- Getting gum disease treatment or preventing it with regular cleanings can help reduce the risks associated with gum disease, such as diabetes complications and heart problems.
- A sleep appliance can prevent the repercussions of living with sleep apnea, from depression to high blood pressure to stroke.
- A TMJ night guard can help reduce the number and intensity of related migraines.
