Whether you like it or not, the appearance of your teeth has a dramatic effect on both how others perceive you as well as your own self-image and self-esteem. Studies have shown that a person's appearance will have a strong effect on their social and career success, by influencing how others perceive them. In fact, over 70% of Americans believe that an unattractive smile can hurt career success. "We believe it is important to help people in their everyday lives by giving them beautiful smiles," states Rene Piedra, DMD.
While the appearance of the teeth is one of the most important contributors to facial beauty, it is also probably the most often neglected when improvements to appearance are sought. A person with low self-esteem connected to their facial appearance, can often be greatly helped by cosmetic dental procedures. Dr. Piedra mission is "to provide my patients with healthy teeth and gums for a lifetime. Having the smile you want is no longer a matter of fate but one of choice."
What is surprising to most is that no matter what the problem with your smile, there's a way to make it absolutely stunning.
* Stained, discolored teeth can be whitened
* Crooked, overlapped teeth can be straightened
* Chipped, broken, worn teeth can be repaired
* Unattractive metal fillings can be replaced with natural-looking restorations
* Missing teeth can be replaced
* Gaps between teeth can be closed
* Gummy smiles can be fixed
Smile makeovers have become more common, less invasive, faster and more effective in correcting cosmetic dental problems. "The effect of these procedures can be nothing short of dramatic both in terms of appearance and also in terms of correcting, at least partially, personality deficiencies caused by poor self-image," says Dr. Piedra and his many happy patients would agree.
