“A smile is happiness you’ll find right under your nose!!”. We all know that smiling boosts our mood and even though there are drastic differences between human cultures and the way we express ourselves, facial expressions have a degree of universality that transcends time and place. Each of these thousands of ways of moving the muscles in our faces, serve to express and reinforce one of the six basic emotions : anger, disgust, enjoyment, fear, sadness and surprise. And the most profound facial expression of them all is the SMILE. But, there could be some of us who might feel embarrassed or self conscious about the way we smile or about the way our teeth look by always keeping our mouth closed while smiling or dream of having whiter, straighter or more attractive teeth. If you have answered ‘yes’ or feel connected to any of the problems mentioned above, then Cosmetic Dentistry Baulkham Hills at Prodental Clinic is the perfect solution for you.

It will improve your health – We do hear this a lot : “What’s the point of cosmetic dentistry?” For some it may seem like an unnecessary luxury but things like fillings and root canals fight infection but veneers are just to enhance looks, right? People who assume that cosmetic dentistry doesn’t treat anything, aren’t taking into consideration every aspect of the term ‘health’. Root canals and fillings treat infection but health is not just the absence of infection. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), health is a complete physical, mental and social well being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity. To explain in our context, cosmetic dentistry is known to treat mental health. For example, solutions such as crowns and dental implants can help address broken, cracked, stained or missing teeth whereas there are also some dental procedures that can focus on sleep apnea – a common condition that is linked to many other serious health complications such as high blood pressure and heart disease. 

It will boost your self confidence – When you feel good about the way you look, you’ll notice a major change in your self esteem. And once you start feeling comfortable in your skin, it will have a ripple effect on every other aspect of your life. You may find yourself making friends easily, going to networking events etc. Everyone around you will notice how much better you look and feel because nothing lights up a room like a wide, confident smile.

 It will help you speak more clearly – Missing, cracked or misaligned teeth may cause slight speech impediments or make it difficult for people to understand what you are saying. A cosmetic dental procedure can also work wonders for anyone whose problems with their teeth have caused them to talk with a lisp.

It will help you to eat a healthier diet – People with missing or misaligned teeth may be unable to eat certain foods due to an inability to chew properly or painlessly. If you are tired of eating a soft, bland or boring diet, cosmetic dentistry will surely help you eat all the foods that you love.

Simple and economical – You might be having a misconception that cosmetic dentistry involves long and complex procedures. However, treatments such as tooth whitening are quick and easy along with the fact that the procedures do not make a hole in your pocket. Cosmetic Dentistry: Baulkham Hills at Prodental Clinic is a preventive investment for your long term health and it is the best solution for a healthier smile that lasts the rest of your life.
