How bad teeth affect self-image
From photos to first impressions, feeling self-conscious about one’s smile can lead to low self-image. Low self-image makes it difficult for individuals to be their real selves when interacting with new acquaintances.
There is nothing abnormal about being concerned with how others perceive your smile, by the way, it is actually very normal. There are significant social ramifications for having bad teeth. Many tend to see people with bad teeth as “lower class,” or assume their teeth are bad because of poor dental hygiene or drug habits. Any way one looks at it, these are negative judgments on one’s character. Just take a look at a popular movie, and people will quickly realize undesirable people tend to be portrayed by dirty-looking characters with an awful set of teeth.
There is no need to let what others say ruin self-confidence. A great smile can help increase self-image and help people gain a more positive outlook on life.
What are smile makeovers?
A smile makeover is one or more dental procedures that are performed with the goal of getting the patient the smile that he or she desires. Some of the procedures one might see a dentist perform during a typical smile makeover include teeth whitening, veneers, bridges, natural-looking fillings, partial dentures, and composite resin bonds.
