When writing our articles at Nashville Aesthetic Dentistry in Brentwood TN, we often describe the various physical improvements that our cosmetic dentistry options can bring you. And we mainly focused on the benefits to your dental health and your smile aesthetic. However, did you know that procedures like tooth whitening and porcelain veneers can also improve your mental health?
Patients often tell us that their lack of confidence stems from their physical appearance. Although we all care more about a person’s character than their looks, there is little 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, those same patients see their smiles fall apart, it can be a real blow to their self-confidence.
In order to better help you understand the benefit a beautiful smile can have on your mind, our team has put together a handy list of mental health improvements you can expect to see shortly following a visit to our practice.
- Overall Boost In Confidence: At the next family gathering or holiday dinner, wouldn’t you like to walk in with a bright, chip- and crack-free 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 set of white teeth can give you, you’ll find yourself more willing to keep appointments, call up old friends, and take pictures. This is probably why teeth whitening is 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.
