Positive self esteem affects many aspects of our lives but it is especially relevant to the way we interact with others, both career wise and on a personal level. There are several factors that combine to influence the way we perceive ourselves, our physical appearance being one of them.

There is only one chance to make a good first impression and one of the best ways to do that is with a healthy smile. If you can present yourself with an air of confidence and a bright personality people will respond in a positive way. Is there something about your smile that is holding you back?

Cosmetic dentistry can do anything from making your teeth whiter to creating a complete smile makeover. A makeover will start with a thorough examination during which your cosmetic dentist will evaluate your needs and then recommend the appropriate procedures. Your dentist will consider your general oral health as as well as things like the shape of your mouth and the tone of your skin. The periodontal part of the exam will determine the strength of your bone structure and the condition of your gum tissue.

It is important that you and your dentist are on the same page during the post exam consultation. Before you go in for the consult make a list of your expectations, what improvements you want to make and how you see yourself looking after the correction. If you are afraid of not being able to get your thoughts across you might want to find a picture that can illustrate what you want to convey. It is quite likely that your dentist will present possibilities that you have not even considered.

Don’t continue to let a lack of self confidence hold you back from enjoying an active social life or pursuing a career opportunity. Take advantage of the highest end technology that cosmetic dentistry has to offer, you will be amazed at the results that can be achieved.
