When you hear the word ‘makeover’ you might think about those popular home shows where a team of design experts pop in on an unsuspecting, deserving family and gives their home a major renovation.
Or maybe a makeover has you thinking about the shows where a stylist helps a fashion victim revamp their look from head to toe. It’s so uplifting to see the look on a person’s face when they’re transformed into a new and improved version of themselves
In either case, you know how powerful a makeover of any kind can be. But when it comes to making over something about your own life, it doesn’t seem as easy as these shows make it appear. There is so much to consider when it comes to weighing the costs against the possible outcomes.
Just as this is true for your home, your wardrobe, or your hairstyle, it’s also true for your smile. When you think about what you’d want to change about your smile, whether your teeth are missing, crooked, stained, or misshapen, you have to think about the value a smile makeover would add to your life and whether that value is worth the investment.
At Advanced Dental, we want to help you see a life-changing return on your investment in a new and improved smile with our cosmetic dentistry options. Today, we’re sharing some of the benefits you can enjoy with a smile makeover from our Las Cruces, NM dental team!
See Your Self-Confidence Soar
You’ve probably had the misfortune at least once in your life of arriving somewhere only to realize you’ve got a huge coffee stain on your pants. Or you’ve walked out of a salon and burst into tears over the epic debacle of that new haircut you were so sure about just an hour earlier when you first landed in the hair stylist’s chair.
You know how incidents like this can affect your self-confidence. Everywhere you go for the rest of that day is a horrifying journey through paranoia. You’re certain that people are staring, pointing, laughing, and judging you. You know you’re not supposed to care what people think, but you’re human! Of course you’re embarrassed!
The good thing about those trips to life’s most embarrassing moments is that they’re brief. You go home at the end of the day and can change your clothes. Eventually, your hair will grow back, and that terrible style choice quickly becomes a distant cautionary tale…a lesson learned.
But you can’t do that with your smile. With the exception of accidents and injuries, the flaws and imperfections in your smile don’t just happen in an instant. And they certainly can’t be fixed by switching to a different color of lipstick the next day to improve its appearance.
That’s where cosmetic dentistry can help. Just like a great new outfit or a new, stylish haircut, a smile makeover can make you feel beautiful and confident everywhere you go. No more worrying about who you’ll bump into throughout the day and whether they notice every little thing you’d rather hide. Instead, you carry yourself with the confidence that comes with knowing you look fantastic.
See Your Professional Life Take Off
While appearance won’t necessarily help you become smarter, harder working, or more competent, the truth is when you look good, you feel good. Confidence is a big part of why we perform the way we do. When you feel good about yourself, you tend to feel better about your instincts and decisions in the workplace.
Another component of work performance is that looking good does add to your credibility. No, appearance isn’t necessarily a reflection of a person’s competence or ability, but let’s be honest. If you’re in a meeting listening to someone offer their ideas, you’re less likely to take that person’s ideas seriously if they look a mess. When someone doesn’t take pride in their appearance by wearing clean clothes, fixing their hair, etc., why should we feel confident that they’ll take pride in their work?
A bright, attractive smile can help you feel confident in the workplace and help others feel confident about your contributions.
See Your Romantic Life Improve
Whether you already have someone special in your life or are still looking, your appearance is important to you. You know that looks aren’t everything, but physical attraction is a big part of making romantic connections.
If your teeth are crooked, gapped, chipped, or stained, you don’t feel attractive. This can have a negative impact on your intimacy with the person you care about, or it can make it difficult to develop intimacy with someone you’re dating.
A smile makeover will make you look and feel more attractive, more desirable, and more comfortable about opening up to the special person in your life or to the possibility of dating someone new.
