A smile can do so much. It can put others at ease, cheer them up – even make someone fall in love with you. However, a smile’s power lies not just in its effect on other people but how it makes you feel.
Smiling as you head into a nerve-wracking situation boosts your endorphins while reducing those stress-enhancing hormones like adrenaline and dopamine. The result? Your confidence and courage levels rise and you can sail on through.
But what if there is something that holds back the beam? What if you are one of the many thousands of Britons who feel self-conscious about their teeth?
What’s the problem with a dodgy smile?
At our specialist dental practice in central London, we see many patients who want the freedom to break into a spontaneous, unguarded grin – yet they are unsure whether they can justify extensive cosmetic dental work.
In many cases, the improvements will not be purely cosmetic but have a positive impact on dental hygiene, too. For example, crooked teeth are difficult to clean and in turn more at risk of plaque build up.
How can my smile be improved?
The field of cosmetic dentistry is continually expanding, offering patients increasingly extensive choice on how to aesthetically improve their teeth. Be it tackling receding gums, straightening misaligned teeth, replacing missing ones or whitening discoloured ones, there will be a method appropriate to you.
At 76 Harley Street, we bring a team of experts together into one specialist dental practice, offering comprehensive treatment to our London patients. With an endodontist, hygienist and prosthodontist working together on a programme of treatment, the patient can expect stress-free, well-planned and effective care.
With those causes of embarrassment removed, your smile no longer needs to stay small and tight-lipped – instead, you can flash those pearly whites with confidence.
