Welcome back to the Mystic Oaks Family and Cosmetic Dentistry blog! In our last blog post, we began talking about the benefits of cosmetic dentistry. Because of the connotations of the word “cosmetic,” some think that it is unnecessary and purely motivated by an overt sense of vanity. However, this isn’t the case. Cosmetic dentistry can actually affect your overall health and quality of life. In part one of this short blog series, we talked about how much your smile affects another person’s first impression of you and could even affect your career. A straight smile can also be more comfortable. If you missed our last blog post, read part one. Otherwise, continue reading to learn how cosmetic dentistry could change your life!

7 Ways Cosmetic Dentistry Could Change Your Life – Part 2

Cosmetic dentistry does more for you than you think. Keep reading to learn how it could change your life.

Increase Your Lifespan

You read that right! Having straight teeth and a healthy smile will affect your overall health. Not only can misaligned teeth be harder to clean, which can lead to tartar and plaque build up — which can affect your heart health — but also having crooked teeth is stressful. Why is it stressful? If you have crooked teeth, how many times have you had anxiety about your smile wondering how it will affect a job opportunity or your love life? There’s enough to stress about! Don’t let your teeth weight you down.

Have a Better Love Life

It’s a dog eat dog world out there, and unfortunately, it is true about dating. Today’s dating game is all about first impressions, especially since more are turning to online dating to find their mate. Perceived poor dental health is a major turnoff and may cause your prospects to make untrue assumptions about you as a person. If you have straight teeth you have a higher chance of getting the swipe right than someone who has crooked teeth — as much as 57 percent!

Enjoy Higher Self Confidence

If you are feeling good about yourself, others will too and having a straight, white, sparkling smile makes having high self-confidence even easier. You should never be having a great time and also be self-conscious about your smile. Also, smiling is actually a health choice. Even if you’re sad, smiling can make you feel happier even if your situation hasn’t changed.

Overall Better Wellbeing

If you straighten your teeth you will no longer feel as self-conscious, your self-confidence will increase, and you may be able to land that dream job and dream partner. With all of this in mind, when you invest in your teeth, you will be investing in your overall wellbeing. Having a better quality of life is well worth the investment and the rate of return on cosmetic dentistry, making it a risk-free investment.
