Cosmetic Dentistry Before and After Baltimore
Your life before and after Baltimore cosmetic dentistry
Have you ever wished that your smile were perfect? Very few of us could answer “No” to that question. In surveys, American adults said they would rather change their smile than any other facial feature. Many believe that a beautiful smile can outshine less attractive features. However, few people are blessed with naturally brilliant, flawless smiles.
Fortunately, advances in dental materials and technology have made it possible for artistic dentists such as Dr. Thomas Rhodes, of Hunt Valley Dental, to create a dazzling, natural looking smile for anyone! Cosmetic dentistry has been skyrocketing in popularity for several years, and with good reason. A new smile is about far more than vanity. It can be truly life changing. What can smile enhancement do for you?
Thirty seconds is not enough time to have a conversation or learn anything about a person. Yet, according to psychologists, that is all the time it takes to form an opinion about the social standing, sophistication, sense of humor, personality, trustworthiness, education, and competence. As you might expect, these judgments are based largely on your appearance. Your smile is typically the first feature that others notice, and it is the most memorable.
According to a 2004 study conducted on behalf of the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry determined that over 99 percent of all American adults believe a nice smile is a valuable social asset. Nearly as many said a beautiful smile makes a person more attractive.
In smile surveys, three out of four adults indicated that the appearance of one’s smile is integral to professional success. This belief is supported by several studies. Fairleigh Dickinson University researchers concluded that applicants with a polished appearance garnered entry-level job offers with up to 20 percent higher salaries than other applicants received. In a separate study, the St. Louis Federal Reserve Bank discovered that attractive employees earn an average of five percent more than unattractive ones.
Everyone has an opinion about you. While your friends’ and employer’s opinions matter, the most important one is your own. How do you feel when you look in the mirror? How do you feel about yourself when you prepare to meet with a client, give a speech, or just enjoy a night on the town?
