Smile Makeover: Change Your Smile, Change Your Life [BLOG]

White teeth Smile | Beck Dental Care | Columbia, TN

When you think of a makeover, you probably imagine all the many ways you can change your overall look. A new diet and exercise regimen has transformed your body, so naturally, you get a new wardrobe. Maybe you trade in your long, brown locks for a blonde, stylish new bob. You treated yourself to a facial and finally took the time to get a professional makeup application at the local department store cosmetic counter.

But one of the things you probably didn’t picture anywhere in that imaginary makeover was changing your smile. And why not?

Too often, we tend to just accept the things we don’t like about our teeth. You might think you’re too old for traditional braces, so you can forget about having the straight teeth you always wanted. Or the years of drinking coffee and red wine have left your teeth a brownish yellow instead of sparkly white. But those OTC whitening strips don’t really work, so you live with the stains. And then there’s the way your top teeth are all slightly out of sync in terms of length and shape. But it’s not like you can just file them all down to give them a uniformed look, so what other choice do you have but to just accept it?

This way of thinking may sound pretty familiar, but your Columbia, TN dental office wants you to know that you don’t have to just accept it! If there are things you don’t like about your smile, then why not change it with a smile makeover at Beck Dental Care?

Today’s blog is all about how you can, in fact, makeover your smile and how it can change your life!

Improving Your Smile Gives You Confidence

We all understand what it feels like to be embarrassed about our appearance. You’ve pulled up to your office building to start a long work day only to discover you have a coffee stain all down the front of your blouse. Or you can remember those first few years of marriage when you put on what you affectionately refer to as “happy weight.” You didn’t want to feel self-conscious anymore about those extra pounds, so you started eating a healthier diet and spent several evenings a week in the gym, and soon enough, that weight came off.

Face it, we’ve all been there. But what we don’t all share is the same duration of these embarrassments. For some people, you suffer for just a few months or maybe just a day, and whatever you didn’t like about your appearance was improved relatively quickly. There was some kind of light at the end of that dark, awful tunnel of paranoia and insecurity.

But for others, things they don’t like about their appearance aren’t always so easily corrected. The problems are not so temporary. Things that changes in diet, physical activity, or time just won’t improve.

So when you’re embarrassed about flaws and imperfections in your smile, you can spend years feeling insecure. Thinking you can’t do anything about it only makes you feel worse. But with a smile makeover, you can have the smile you’ve always wanted and the confidence you’ve been missing. Just think about how much your quality of life would improve if you didn’t have to carry around that heavy burden of insecurity all the time! A smile makeover can help lift that burden off your shoulders once and for all.

Making Over Your Smile Can Benefit You Professionally And Personally

An unfortunate truth about appearances is… they matter. We’re not supposed to judge people based on how they look, but we do. And in some respects, it makes sense. In a professional setting, for example, it’s hard to take someone’s ideas seriously if they don’t seem to take themselves seriously. If you look like a mess while trying to pitch an idea to your colleagues, subordinates, or supervisors, you’re not going to effectively make your case. Why? They’re going to be too distracted by your disheveled appearance to be able to really hear your ideas.

But when you look like you take pride in how you present yourself to others, people will assume you take equal pride in your work. That’s how a confident, attractive smile can help you professionally by adding to your level of credibility.

On a more personal level, a beautiful smile is one of the things we notice first when we meet new people. Confidence is an attractive quality, and a smile makeover can eliminate the lack of confidence that’s been holding you back romantically.
