While looks aren’t everything, recent studies have shown that a person’s teeth play a large role in first impressions. In fact, one study showed that individuals with straight teeth get more dates, are perceived as more successful, and perceived as being smarter. It might not seem fair, but the truth is that these studies highlight the importance of good dental hygiene and keeping your smile in tip top shape.
Making a Lasting Impression With Your Smile
The key to leaving a lasting impression with your smile is to start with good oral hygiene. This means you brush twice a day, floss once a day, and see the dentist twice a year for exams and cleanings.
Good oral hygiene helps to keep plaque at a minimum, reduces the chance of developing cavities and dental decay, and keeps your smile looking great. Additionally, when you regularly visit the dentist you’re given the opportunity to get feedback on where you can improve, as well as suggestions on what can be done to help any problems you might be facing.
How can I get an attractive smile?
If you’re looking for ways outside of general preventative dentistry to improve your smile, there are several cosmetic dentistry procedures that can help you achieve your goal. In fact, Dr. Pham brings years of experience in helping patients feel confident and happy about their smiles.
If you’re like many adults looking for a straighter smile, chances are you have visions of traditional metal braces being used to straighten your teeth. This might be the sole reason why you’ve avoided discussing your concerns with the doctor.
The good news is that for busy professionals and those who want to avoid the look of traditional metal braces, we offer Invisalign. These clear plastic braces are not only invisible, they also help straighten teeth in less time.
Bright, white teeth are often behind every confident smile. Unfortunately, getting that bright smile can be an uphill battle. Things like coffee, wine, and chocolate all play a part in staining our teeth. And while brushing can help remove surface stains, deeper stains need professional intervention.
Dr. Pham has helped thousands of patients get the smile they want through professional teeth whitening. This procedure is one of the most popular in the country and is both pain-free and quick.
Composite fillings are fillings that are tooth colored. They blend in naturally with surrounding teeth. So unlike traditional alloy fillings, when you open your mouth or smile people won’t notice that you’ve had fillings. Because they’re strong, composite fillings can be used on front teeth, as well as back teeth.
Veneers and Laminates
If you suffer from gaps in your teeth, cracked teeth, or an uneven smile, veneers and laminates might be the best option for you. These thin sheets are placed over your existing teeth and create a completely new smile without surgery.
