Do you feel confident, or are you a “fake it till you make it” kind of person?
Want to know the secret weapon to appearing confident, even when you’re not? It all comes down to your smile.
In situations such as a job interview, a blind date, or an important meeting, first impressions count. Imagine meeting someone who greets you with a happy, confident smile, as opposed to someone with a neutral expression, a frown or a nervous and ill-at-ease half smile. Which one gives the better first impression?
Of course, it’s the person who smiles freely and confidently. This action alone makes other people perceive you as more confident, trustworthy, warm, friendly, positive, sincere, approachable and attractive. Smiling even makes you appear younger! That’s a lot of great benefits you can get from one quick, simple little action that costs you nothing.
So why not smile?
Given the many benefits that a smile can bring, why don’t people feel comfortable and confident smiling? There may be many reasons for this – but it’s more than likely that you don’t feel confident smiling because you’re unhappy with the appearance of your smile. If you have problems with your teeth and gums that make you feel unattractive, you probably try to hide or cover up your smile, or even try not to smile at all. This is unfortunate, as chances are, you’re missing out on opportunities to make the most of yourself.
And it’s more common than you might think. Dental problems that prevent you from smiling confidently are prevalent. Very few of us are born with perfectly straight, white and even teeth. Given a lifetime of wear, many of us are dealing with problems such as:
- Broken or missing teeth
- Stained or discoloured teeth
- Irregularly shaped or very short teeth
- Cracked or chipped teeth
- Uneven, crooked or misaligned teeth
- Worn teeth
- Gappy teeth
If you’re one of the many people who experience one or more of these dental imperfections, it’s completely understandable that you might want to hide your smile. However, it’s a sad reality that people who aren’t confident smiling are putting themselves on the back-foot right from the start. There’s a good chance that your first impression won’t be a great one, as the majority of people make judgements based on appearance. Lack of self-confidence can have a significant negative impact on your career, your social life, your achievements and even your mood.
Luckily, there’s a solution to the problem of a lack of confidence in your smile. Dental veneers can fix many of the problems that erode your confidence and change your unsightly smile into one that you’ll be proud and happy to show off. A straighter, whiter and more attractive smile that you won’t feel the need to hide is well within your grasp. Dental veneers give you the opportunity to improve not only your smile, but also your appearance, self-confidence and chances for success at the same time.
How? Well, it’s simple. Dental veneers are realistic and natural-looking shells that are placed over your teeth to hide dental imperfections. These thinly-constructed, custom made shells improve the colour, size, shape or length of your teeth, making them look flawlessly sculptured. Veneers are made of porcelain materials, and with proper care can last up to 20 years. Discoloured, worn or broken teeth become a thing of the past with dental veneers, which are colour-matched to your teeth to blend in seamlessly with your mouth. As well, veneers are quite durable and will be able to handle all the normal forces your teeth are subjected to without a problem.
If it sounds like a lot of effort to go to to get a great smile, you’d be wrong. The process of getting dental veneers is fairly straightforward, and involves minimal time, pain and invasive procedures. In fact, dental veneers are one of the easiest and quickest ways to improve the appearance of your smile.
Dental veneers, your secret weapon to confidence
And the best part? Dental veneers are your secret weapon. While people who know you well will be able to see a difference, it won’t be because veneers don’t look natural, but just because they make you look different to how you normally look. Which is the point – to improve how you look. Total strangers won’t be able to tell that you have veneers. In fact, you might be surprised to discover just how many celebrities use veneers to create a camera-ready smile, because it’s not readily apparent. Dental veneers will give you a more attractive and direct smile that will carry you through any circumstance you’ll face in life – with confidence.
