Career coaches, life coaches, relationship experts and just about everyone else will tell you that you have to invest in yourself if you want to be successful. That’s very true. You’ll almost never go wrong when you do something to improve yourself. The same can be said about your smile, which is the one accessory that is with you in every situation—on the job, on a date or at home. Your cosmetic dentist in Lansing, Dr. John Hagerty, knows three good reasons why spending money on your smile is a worthwhile investment. Read on to learn about these reasons as well as the dental services Dr. Hagerty offers to improve the health and appearance of your smile.
Three Reasons to Invest in Your Smile
- Your relationships. We’re not just talking about romantic interests here, but the relationships you have with all the people around you. Your smile can make you memorable and is an integral part of how people perceive you at home, at work and in social settings. Therefore, good oral hygiene to ensure healthy teeth and gums, as well as measures to enhance the appearance of your smile, can instill self-confidence as well as confidence in you!
- Your Health. What percentage of American adults do you think have some degree of gum disease? Conservative estimates put the number at around 80 percent. Now if gum disease only affected your mouth that would be trouble enough. However, we know that there is a link between the bacteria that cause gum disease and other systemic illnesses including heart disease, stroke and diabetes. Therefore, your overall health and well being is a very good reason to take care of your mouth.
- Your career. Studies show that an unhealthy mouth can reduce you chances of getting hired or being promoted. And if you have a job, then an unhealthy mouth can affect your willingness to speak up in a meeting. A successful career depends on being able to speak confidently in public and lead others toward a goal. Neither of these can be accomplished if you’re too ashamed to open your mouth.
Dental Care for Success!
To put your best smile forward in any situation, you need to first have healthy teeth and gums. This means scheduling regular dental checkups every six months. We’ll clean your teeth, check for signs of decay and evaluate the condition of your gums. Restorative dentistry treatments such as tooth-colored fillings, dental crowns and dental implants can all be incorporated in a treatment plan to rejuvenate your smile. Finally, cosmetic dentistry can be the finishing touch that seals the deal on a winning smile!
