A smile is more than just a way to show that you are happy. It’s a warm greeting, a signal of friendliness, confidence, and acceptance. A smile is a way to tell the world that you are in good health as well as good spirits. In fact, According to an American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry national survey, Americans place a very high value on their smiles:
- 92% believe an attractive smile is an important social asset.
- 85% believe an unattractive smile makes a person less appealing to the opposite sex.
- 74% believe an unattractive smile can hurt a person’s chances for career success.
The survey also states that half of us are not satisfied with the appearance of our own smiles, which is the reason cosmetic dental treatments are growing in popularity every year.
Cosmetics is the branch of dentistry that focuses on aesthetics. And while some treatments, like restorations, may have oral health benefits as well as aesthetic benefits, there are some that strictly aim to improve appearance.
