Who cares about straight teeth, anyway?

I remember thinking that.  And don’t get me wrong, I don’t think that straight teeth are the begin all, end all of someone’s appearance.  But there is a good chance that you might think that about yourself.

"I hate my beautiful smile," said no one, ever!I have known many people, in my lifetime, and when I look back at photos and talk with old friends (and new friends), their number 2 concern about their appearance: their teeth (weight is almost always #1 – even with men).

So what is it about our smile that causes us so much anxiety.  Well, for starters, studies show that eye contact and smiling are the top indicators of confidence.  In business, a full smile makes us more comfortable with someone.  In relationships, smiling causes the mutual release of endorphins.  We signal other people to lower their emotional guard with a smile.

When our teeth aren’t as healthy, straight, or bright as we think they should be, we begin to change the way we smile.  If we have a broken or missing tooth, we hide it by adjusting where our lips sit in a smile.  We don’t smile as broadly and, sometimes, we don’t smile at all!

The good news is that you don’t have to live like that!  While those of us who don’t have straight teeth will say, “I don’t care about things like that,” I will say that I’ve never heard anyone complain, “I hate having a straight, beautiful smile!”

It starts with a consultation.  Come in and visit Dr. Barotz, and allow the cosmetic experts at Barotz Dental show you what your smile could look like with our Digital Smile Enhancing software!
