On our blog at Mid Peninsula Dental Specialists in Los Altos CA, we often tout the physical improvements that cosmetic dentistry can grant your smile and dental health. However, did you know the effect of these procedures can also be felt in your mental health?
A lot of our lack of confidence stems from physical appearance. After all, even though we all care more about a person’s character than their looks, there is also no doubt that a clean, consistent appearance can be a sign of friendliness and confidence to the outside world. So, when, due to genetics, time, or a lack of a consistent dental routine, we see our smile decay and fall apart, it can be a real blow to your self-confidence.
In order to better explain, our team has put together a handy list of mental health improvements you can expect from our cosmetic dentistry procedures.
- Overall Boost In Confidence: Imagine attending the next family gathering or holiday dinner with a brighter, whiter smile. Porcelain veneers can achieve this in just one visit. Porcelain covers are placed on the front of your teeth that cover up inconsistencies and mimic your natural enamel perfectly.
- Enjoyable Social Life: With the newfound swagger that a crack-free set of teeth can bring you, you’ll find yourself more willing to keep appointments, call up old friends, and take pictures. This is probably why dental crowns are one of our most popular treatments.
- Improved Relationships: How are we to maintain those crucial connections to the people we care about, if we’re too scared to leave the house for fear of our missing teeth? Dental implants can give you back those relationships with strong titanium posts that can support dentures and other tooth replacement options.
