But if you want a smile makeover, there’s no better time than the present. Here’s why now is your best time to get the smile you’ve been dreaming of.
Your Smile Might Be Getting Worse
You might think your smile is just unattractive, but many things that make your smile unattractive can either cause health problems or conceal them. Crooked teeth can continue to drift out of place. They can also begin to chip or crack.
Discolored teeth might actually have more decay than you think, and that decay can develop into an abscess, which can require a root canal to treat. Or the tooth might fail.
Getting your smile makeover today won’t just make it look more attractive, it can address health problems and also establish a healthy, balanced bite that can protect your teeth from excessive force that can lead to chips and cracks.
Avoid Expensive Maintenance
Have you ever held onto an old car for too long? Once the car is past its prime, every visit to the shop reveals some new problem. After a while, you realize that for what you’ve paid for maintenance, you could’ve been making payments on a new car?
Your smile can be the same way. If your teeth are unhealthy as well as unattractive, they can develop many more problems than healthy teeth. You might be trying to save money–even trying to save up for your smile makeover–but those savings can be eaten up by the frequent need for new crowns, a root canal, and other procedures. Now you’ve spent almost as much, but instead of a healthy, beautiful smile, you have a mismatched set of restorations that give your smile a cobbled-together appearance.
Health Benefits Will Save You Money
The expense of an unhealthy smile isn’t just related to dental procedures. Your oral health is linked to your overall health, and we can measure the impact your oral health has in terms of the increased medical expenses you may incur. Diabetes, heart disease, stroke, cancer, and pregnancy complications are all related to gum disease, and getting gum disease treatment can potentially save you thousands of dollars each year in medical costs related to those other conditions.
Start Earning More
We’ve talked before about how cosmetic dentistry can improve your earnings. Well, the sooner you get your smile makeover, the sooner you can potentially start seeing increased earnings. With a 5-10% beauty premium, every year you wait to get a smile makeover could potentially mean thousands of dollars in earnings being lost.
There’s Only One Chance to Make a First Impression
You can’t press “pause” on life while you’re putting off your smile makeover. Instead, you’ll be meeting new people every day. And if you haven’t gotten your smile makeover, the impression people will get of you will be affected by your unattractive smile. The truth is that your smile is quite likely the first thing people notice, and the thing they’re most likely to remember after your initial meeting.
A smile that is discolored or has damaged, crooked teeth can make people think you are less intelligent, less successful, even less kind. It can take a long time to erase those initial impressions.
An Accomplishment, Not a Wish for Someday
The things that we have done, these things help us feel happy and proud, but those things we are hoping to do someday can just hang over our heads. They don’t make us happy. They might even make us unhappy. Especially if you have a sense that you might never actually be able to accomplish your goals.
Instead of putting your smile makeover off for some distant future time, take concrete steps to achieve this goal now.
