Cosmetic Dentistry Success Stories
A beautiful smile is considered our greatest asset at any age, according to a study from the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry (AACD). Nearly half of the participants in this survey agreed that that a smile is the most attractive feature at any stage of life.
A Suffolk County cosmetic dentist at Long Island Implant & Cosmetic Dentistry may be just the professional you need to achieve (or maintain) a healthy, beautiful smile and the self-confidence that goes with it throughout your adult years.
Benefits of cosmetic dentistry
There are many stories about how successful cosmetic dentistry has changed lives. Patients who have suffered from bullying and lack of self-esteem due to crooked, missing or damaged teeth have found a new lease on life when their smiles were changed for the better. Whether damage was due to lack of dental hygiene, injury or congenital malformations, cosmetic dentistry solutions are available to address nearly any type of concern.
One nurse in Alaska quit her nursing job after a patient called her EMO (Extreme Makeover) ugly. After getting turned down by ABC’s Extreme Makeover twice, this nurse turned to a cosmetic dentist to get the changes she desperately needed. Through porcelain veneers and inlays, this woman turned her smile – and her life – completely around and she is quick to praise her cosmetic dentist for her new-found success.
New hope in a healthy smile
Another success story comes from the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, which offers the Give Back a Smile (GBAS) program to victims of domestic violence. Cynthia had been in an abusive marriage, which had left her with a number of broken and missing teeth. After leaving her husband, Cynthia claims she was treated differently at her professional job and in her personal life due to the devastating effects of her tooth damage.
In addition to her self-consciousness about her appearance, the damage to Cynthia’s teeth also affected her ability to speak clearly – a major challenge for a person that did public speaking for a living. She finally applied for GBAS and received the cosmetic help she needed to repair and replace her smile. Today, Cynthia states she “greets each day with a renewed sense of hope and joy, strength and purpose.” She credits the radical change with her dental work, which has given her a smile that could “light up the whole world.”
Enjoy more confidence & self-esteem
There is little doubt that your smile can have a significant impact on your success in life. The AACD survey also found that more than one-third of respondents said a person with a flawed smile was less attractive, while one-fourth said that person would be less confident. The survey also found that nearly half of respondents thought a smile gave the most lasting first impression, while only one-fourth thought words made a more lasting impression than the smile.
Dr. Nick and Dr. Elliot have seen the important impact a smile can have on a person’s life over and over again. Their patients have given them rave reviews on their professional and caring manners and their ability to create beautiful smiles from even the most problematic mouths..
