Patients may be under the impression that Cosmetic Dentistry is a specialty area of dentistry – it’s actually not. But what makes this area of dentistry interesting is that it incorporates the artistic talents of the dentist to analyze a patient’s smile and design teeth that will provide maximum esthetics.
Smiles and First Impressions
We all form a first impression when we meet somebody for the first time – sometimes it’s a person’s gorgeous hair, impeccable clothing and extreme height. More often than not what grabs our attention is a person’s smile – because it not only can be a thing of beauty, it also conveys a certain energy and a glimpse of a person’s health and vitality. When our smile doesn’t reflect how we feel, there is a tendency to want to hide it – smiling with our lips closed and using our hand to cover our mouth – which chips away at our self-confidence and makes us avoid certain professional and social occasions. As the saying goes – you only have one chance to make a first impression – so revealing your best smile will give you a great start.
How Are Smiles Changed?
Family Dentists at Centennial Smiles Dental in Downtown Calgary explain that Cosmetic Dentistry can eliminate several dental concerns that may be detracting from a smile.
