The importance of a smile
A survey by the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry (AACD) reports that 74% of adults believe that an unattractive smile can hurt their chances for career success.
Your smile is an integral part of your personality. It boosts your confidence, impacts your health, self-esteem and relationships. However, over time your smile shows its age.
One of the most visible signs of aging is your changing smile. Your front and back teeth wear or break down as the year’s pass. If you suffer through the loss of your back teeth, you will also lose face support, making an individual look older than they are.
For example, patients who have lost their back teeth at a young age or have worn out their teeth severely tend to have bite collapse which puts stress on their facial muscles and joints. Over time, the bite closes up a little, and the jaw becomes squarish. Our chin also moves closer to your nose resulting in a shorter the lower third of your face.
What Can Be Done?
At Orchard Scotts Dental, we rebuild our patient’s teeth to resemble their youthful dimensions once again, which tightens facial muscles and can not only make one’s face look younger but also allows them to chew food more efficiently. Thus, allowing our patients to eat a more broad array of foods once more.
