Your smile is part of your image, an expression of who you are. A smile can open doors, how about yours? How easily do you smile?
Cosmetic and Restorative Dentistry
Your smile is an asset – people are attracted to other people who smile. Smiling people appear more confident, are more likely to be promoted, and more likely to be approached. Put on a smile when you meet people, and people will react to you differently.
A winning smile can help you land that big job, get a promotion, win a proposal, or receive a proposal!
Men may be less likely to visit the dentist than their female counterparts, for reasons ranging from lack of time, to lack of understanding about the benefit of regular dental care. However, men are increasingly seeing the benefits of a great smile in the business world. With people changing jobs more frequently than in the past and interviewing more frequently, there is recognition that appearance can be a factor when in competition for a desired job opening.

What you can do to keep your smile healthy & beautiful
- Avoid stain-causing beverages such as red wine, soda and coffee, and brush soon after eating or drinking them.
- Don’t use your teeth to open bags, bite thread or to open cans and bottles. This can result in chips, a tooth breaking or cause teeth to loose their natural color and become gray.
- Practice good dental care. Brush twice daily and floss daily.
- Don’t smoke. Smoking stains your teeth and ages your skin prematurely. Smokers sometimes look years older than their true age.
- Visit your dentist regularly for checkups, follow your treatment plan, and get regular professional cleanings.
