A smile means many things to people. It can show gratitude, happiness, or pleasure. Any or all of these things may be reasons to smile at others. It doesn’t cost anything, and the dividends may be huge. For example, if you smile at a grumpy coworker, you will probably make that person feel better. In turn, she will begin to smile as well and brighten the lives of others, creating a ripple effect that could theoretically transform the world!
Don’t Worry About Your Smile
However, if you don’t smile because you’re concerned your teeth look bad, that may put a damper on your day and inhibit your interactions with others. Fortunately, it is not difficult to improve your smile. A good orthodontist can advise you on whether you’re a suitable candidate for treatment with braces. Some types of wires are nearly invisible, such as Invisalign. There are also ceramic braces and self-ligating versions, depending on your specific orthodontic needs.
When you contact an orthodontist for an evaluation, you will be given a thorough dental exam, possibly including x-rays. Then you’ll be advised of treatment options like Invisalign that can straighten crooked or misaligned teeth as well as shift them into their correct positons and fill empty gaps from missing teeth. If your teeth were tilted, twisted, or chipped, you will be amazed by the wonders of orthodontic treatment that can align your teeth into their proper positions and close gaps, giving you a beautiful smile that you’ll love sharing with everyone you meet.
Don’t keep your lips compressed because you’re worried about what others will think of your teeth. Find out if orthodontia could the answer to your teeth problems to give you a beautiful, even smile.
