Improve Your Self-Confidence
You know that saying, “Look good, feel good?” The same applies for your smile. Just like wearing your favorite jeans, trying a more flattering haircut, or getting you nails done, having a beautiful smile will leave you feeling good. When you’re proud of how your smile looks, you’ll feel more confident at work and at play. Even if you’re just unhappy with the color of your teeth, Dr. Bailey can whiten your smile, so you’ll feel confident at your job interview or on your next blind date.
Improve the Impression You Make
Dr. Bailey is a strong believer in making yourself happy, and if a more attractive smile would make you happier, then go for it! People who like their smiles tend to smile more – and smiling makes a great impression. Studies have shown that smiles are contagious, and when you have a radiant smile, you’re sure to spread that happiness with those around you. In turn, they’ll think of you as a happy person who’s positive, fun to be around, always spreading joy.
Increase Your Potential for Career Advancement
Kelton Research found that when job candidates received professional teeth whitening prior to attending a job interview, they were more likely to get hired. Not only were the candidates hired, they were also given a higher salary. They felt so confident with their abilities and their smile, that they knocked the interview out of the park!
Positive State of Mind
Along with improving self-confidence and how others see you, cosmetic dentistry can give you a more positive state of mind. Again, we want to go back to the idea that when you look good, you feel good. A well-maintained smile can cause others too see you as friendlier, more successful, and more intelligent. Not only can it influence others to see you in a different light, but it can help you see yourself that way too.
Pursuing New Goals
With more confidence, you may feel the need to conquer those once intimidating tasks. Don’t stop at just enhancing the appearance of your smile, let that newfound confidence spread into other aspects of your life. When your smile radiates through the room, you may feel more excited to pursue that career you’ve always dreamt about or ask out the girl who lives next door. Your options are limitless if you just take the first step.
Cosmetic dentistry isn’t limited solely to teeth whitening; Dr. Bailey offers solutions for teeth that need to be reshaped or realigned, with porcelain veneers. If the gap between your teeth makes you feel ashamed of your smile, she may recommend dental bonding. Along with these cosmetic services, Dr. Bailey also offers laser gum contouring.
