6 Ways to Get More Confidence and Improve Your Smile Dentist Glenroy When it comes to changing your appearance, only so much is possible. But looks can be very important as they affect things like your confidence and how people perceive you.

Your confidence isn’t completely based on your appearance, but appearance does affect confidence. And the first thing people notice about you is your smile. Flashing a big smile displays confidence, happiness, friendliness, warmth, and positive feelings.

Science has proven it improves your mood, improves the moods of those around you, increases your chances of landing a job, impresses potential mates, and leads to greater social success.

This is where Glenroy Dental Group’s dental talents can step in. We can help you increase your confidence by improving your smile, and maybe even improving your life!

The Psychology of Smiling

Scientists have shown that smiling can:

Improve your mood –When you smile your brain releases endorphins and you begin to feel good.

Make others happy –. We smile and others who see it are prompted to match it due to a psychological effect called ‘mirroring’. So a smile gets smiles in return and everyone begins to feel better.

Make you look younger – Studies show that people will judge a smiling face to be younger than it actually is.

Build better relationships – A smile can reduce conflict and make others feel more comfortable and open to your approaches.

Be approachable – If you’re smiling, more people will want to talk to you, and fewer people will be worried that you might be angry, or in a bad mood.

How the Glenroy Dental Group can help

Bonding. Dentists use a bonding material matched to the color of your teeth to correct excess space between the teeth or to improve the appearance of chipped, broken, stained, or cracked teeth. This procedure can usually be completed within a single office visit.

Invisalign. Invisalign is a popular alternative to clunky traditional orthodontic appliances such as braces. Rather than unattractive wires and other apparatuses they use temporary clear tooth aligners that are invisible to bystanders. Invisalign allows patients to straighten their teeth while maintaining a professional appearance. This means that patients are not only confident after treatment, but during it as well!

Dentures. A denture is a dental appliance, which replaces the hard and soft tissues of the oral cavity. It can restore your smile and give you back the ability to chew and speak properly – all improvements that can increase confidence.

Dental implants. If you have missing teeth, your smile can negatively affect your appearance, making you appear unhealthy, broke, unprofessional, or worse. The Glenroy Dental Group can improve your appearance and your image by replacing your teeth with natural-looking dental implants. Dental implants also provide the stimulation your jawbone needs to prevent resorption. This means that your face will not “sag” or “droop”, causing you to look years older. And a younger, firmer face is usually taken as more attractive and confident.

Porcelain veneers. Porcelain veneers, or dental veneers, are ceramic sheets as thin as contact lenses. Veneers are bonded to the front surface of the teeth to improve their appearance. Veneers can allow teeth to appear properly aligned and straightened, without braces.

Porcelain veneers can also cover cosmetically damaged areas of teeth and improve your teeth’s overall appearance. Their characteristics and colour give your teeth an attractive pearly white, translucent sheen resulting in a natural-looking and radiant smile.

Teeth Whitening. There are two times of whitening, at home and in-office. For immediate results many patients choose a one-hour in-office whitening, which can whiten teeth up to 8 shades in just one visit! A good candidate for laser whitening must have a healthy set of teeth. If your teeth are in bad shape or are extremely sensitive, your dentist may recommend take-home professional whitening. This procedure uses a custom-made tray that fits your mouth comfortably. With a take-home kit and a professional grade whitening solution your teeth will begin to occur whiter in just a few days. Many of these whitening systems are also appropriate for patients with sensitive teeth.

These six treatments should give you a good idea of how The Glenroy Dental Group can help you. We have a lot more to discuss, if you come in for a conversation!
