    on Jan 11th, 2019

According to the American Association of Orthodontists (AAO), over a third of adults around the country are not happy with their smile. That means there’s a whole lot of people who are probably avoiding their photos being posted on social media sites.

There is, of course, a serious side to this, too. Studies have found that smiling is not just natural, but it’s also really important to how we feel about ourselves and how other people perceive us. Here are some things you might not know about smiling:

If you’re unhappy with your smile, our cosmetic dentists are available to help you. Here at Soft Touch Dentistry, we can provide a range of dental services that can improve your smile and help you find your confidence again.

Are you unhappy with your smile?

There are lots of reasons why a person might be unhappy with their smile. In most cases, it’s because of the following dental issues:

Any of the above issues can make a person feel anxious about their appearance and may mean that they avoid social situations. In some cases, they may even feel isolated and depressed because of the way their teeth look.

How can cosmetic dentistry help?

Cosmetic dentists specialize in improving the aesthetics of the teeth and the smile, while also addressing a range of other dental issues. It’s interesting to note that more people than ever before are seeking the services of cosmetic dentists, and the industry grew  by 2.5% in 2018.

It’s important to understand that if you’re feeling low about the way your smile looks, a wide range of cosmetic dental services can offer effective help. Here are some of the most common ways in which cosmetic dentistry can improve oral health and improve your smile:

1. Teeth whitening

This is certainly one of the most common cosmetic dental services requested, and though many people opt to use the consumer-grade teeth whiteners from the supermarket, the fact is that they are inferior to the kind of technology we have at Soft Touch Dentistry.

We offer teeth whitening services that actually work. After a few sessions, you’ll notice that your teeth are brighter and whiter than ever before.

2. Dental veneers

Veneers are thin shells that fit over existing teeth. They are manufactured to look just like natural teeth and will even resist staining. Dental veneers are a cost-effective solution for people with discolored teeth, damaged teeth, and teeth with large gaps in between.

3. Implants

If you have missing teeth, dental implants represent a fantastic solution. During the two-step procedure, titanium pegs are attached to the jawbone in the places formerly occupied by teeth. After some recovery time, a set of manufactured teeth are fitted to the pegs.

The benefit is that the implants are strong, durable, and look exactly like natural teeth. They are even color-matched to existing teeth so that no one will be able to tell the difference. Furthermore, implants improve long-term oral health because they prevent other teeth from moving and provide additional support within the jawbone.
