How to Love Your Smile
Have you ever taken a step back to think of the significance of your smile? Well, in a world where social media has us more obsessed about our teeth than ever before, it wouldn’t be surprising if your smile is less than you want it to be. Our smiles make others feel welcome. They offer comfort to someone who might be sad or afraid, and they provide a mood boost, helping our bodies release cortisol and endorphins to reduce our blood pressure, help us relax, and increase our endurance. So if you hate your smile, what do you need to do to love it instead?
Most of us understand the significance of a great smile. And just because we don’t have the perfect smile now doesn’t mean we can’t make changes. Cosmetic dentistry provides a host of benefits beyond just appearance, including improved confidence, better oral health, and even better overall health, just to name a few. Further, advances in modern dentistry have made it more possible than ever to attain a healthy smile and love every bit of it.
Let’s start by talking about the importance of your health. Though many of us might aspire to have a flat stomach and skinny waist, it’s better to focus on overall health versus some desired outcome. When we nourish ourselves with a well-balanced diet as outlined by the USDA, we’ll be well on our way to taking good care of our bodies. Part of taking care of our health includes visiting the dentist every six months for a dental cleaning and oral examination. It also requires brushing our teeth twice a day, flossing once a day, and rinsing with a fluoridated mouthwash. And when we consider tooth-friendly foods too, we can naturally improve our smile.
Confidence and Self-Love
A smile you love can be a critical boost to your self-confidence, providing you with good feelings that help you believe in yourself more. When you believe in yourself, you often realize that you can achieve the things you want to. Self-esteem, also commonly referred to as self-love, is all about understanding that you are worthy of the respect and love of others. Sharing positive affirmations to yourself and others can also help you feel better about who you are as a person. By focusing on these positive feelings, you can learn to love yourself better. And when you combine that with a focus on your health, your body will start to feel and look healthier.
Now, let’s talk about cosmetic dentistry. This might seem out of place after discussing the importance of our health and the need for confidence and self-love. But when it comes to our teeth, sometimes the years can work against us. Over time, our teeth can discolor, and their brightness can fade. If we have had cavities or suffered a traumatic injury, we can have chipped teeth or holes in our teeth. And if we didn’t have orthodontic work done when we were young, our teeth may be crooked or out of alignment. Much of this is beyond our control, butcosmetic dentistry offers a solution to give us a smile we can love.
