These days, people are very concerned with appearances. Everyone worries about needing to be tan, thin, and fashionable. In fact, about $100 billion is spent in hair care each year. On the contrary, only about $50 billion is spent each year on dental treatments and cleanings.
While people are so caught up in making their bodies look good, a survey by the American Academy of Periodontology (AAP) found that about 50 percent of people consider a smile the first facial feature they notice. Your smile is a huge part of your appearance, and Dr. Fondriest can give you a smile that’s worth honoring.
The AAP poll revealed that people are seven times more likely to have periodontal and smile enhancements than face lifts. Cosmetic surgery can make you look younger, but Dr. Fondriest has a better solution: smile! Smiling lifts up your facial muscles to help you look younger and more confident. Almost 70 percent of men admitted that they think a woman looks more attractive when she is smiling than when she is wearing any makeup. While Botox may be able to remove features that make you look older, like wrinkles, Dr. Fondriest can also make your smile look brand new. Whitening, veneers, and other cosmetic enhancements can help mask discolorations and defects on your teeth that make your smile look aged and worn out.
The AAP also found that smile enhancement procedures outnumbered eyelid surgeries five to one. Just like eyelid surgeries can expose more of your eye, gum lifts can reveal more of your teeth! If you have a “gummy smile,” Dr. Fondriest offers crown lengthening to remove excess gum tissue and make your teeth look longer and brighter.
The American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry found that people who have had smile-enhancing treatments are rated as more attractive, popular, successful, and friendly. If you’re going to choose to have cosmetic enhancements, you’re better off picking safe and healthy smile enhancements that look natural and beautiful.
