3 ways cosmetic dentistry can enhance self-esteem bondi dental

Do you sometimes wish you had a more attractive smile?

Scientific research supports the growing awareness of how critical a healthy smile can be to self-confidence and how we are perceived socially or professionally.

And with modern materials, techniques, and technology, many dentists now offer a variety of cosmetic dental treatments. But what is cosmetic dentistry, and how does it help you?

Cosmetic dentistry is the branch that improves the appearance of your smile and teeth.

Cosmetic dentistry focuses on aesthetics rather than tooth repair. Although cosmetic dentistry is not a recognised specialty in dental care, it takes years of study and training to become a cosmetic dentist Bondi Beach and perform the procedures available today.

At Bondi Dental, we have those years of experience, and we would like to take this opportunity to introduce you to some of the cosmetic treatments we offer to improve our patients’ smiles.

Why you should consider cosmetic dentistry

There are three categories in which cosmetic dentistry can increase self-esteem and success (leading to even more self-esteem!). The categories are social, relationships, and health.

#1. Social Life

The results of a study, “The Impact of Whiter Teeth on Key First Impressions,” have given us new evidence that a beautiful white smile directly affects social reception.

In the study, a whiter smile dramatically improves how you are perceived and how others think of you at first impression. The study included a simulated first date.

Evaluators demonstrated a greater interest in continuing a simulated date with 54% of the subjects after their teeth had been whitened.

Following teeth whitening, 59% of study participants were perceived as more gregarious during the fictitious first dates. So, better-looking teeth can help you succeed in love!

The quantitative online survey gave similar results. Participants with whiter teeth were seen to have more positive attributes than individuals with stained teeth across the following variables: trustworthiness, financial success, and professional success.

These results held true across income, gender, education, employment and marital status. Finally, participants were asked about the importance of appearance.

The participants agreed that personal appearance is an indication of:

  • Financial success (64%)
  • Professional success (68%)
  • Trustworthiness (52%)

#2. Job Success

The outcomes regarding careers were similar: Following teeth whitening, over two-thirds of study participants (58%) were 53% more likely to receive offers of higher salaries and to be recruited.

After teeth whitening, most study participants were viewed as more professional (65%) and confident (61%).

#3. Health Benefits

Individuals with poor dental health have an increased risk of developing heart disease, diabetes, kidney failure, pancreatic cancer, and mouth cancer.

Enhancing dental health through cosmetic dentistry frequently results in better ongoing care. It spurs recipients to care for their teeth and can also directly improve dental health.

Orthodontic repair, for instance, can reduce the chances of gum disease and cavities, while bonding can protect against bacterial attacks on your enamel.

So, what can Bondi Dental offer you if cosmetic dental treatment can do all these things?
