If a person does not feel confident or good about their smile, they tend not to smile and hide their teeth. There are several reasons why people should make smiling a regular habit. For instance, studies show that the act of smiling can be just like a drug, and it releases chemicals in the body like endorphins to make a person feel happier. These same chemicals can also reduce stress. Smiling acts in the same way to measurably lower a person's blood pressure as shown by several studies.
Most people do not realize that smiling can actually boost your immune system. Blood samples of people that are smiling have higher levels of germ fighting substances than people who are not smiling. People who are smiling all the time seem to rarely get sick.
In today's society, smiling people are generally viewed as more successful, confident and happier. Statistics show that if a person is viewed this way, they tend to be offered more opportunities for success and most likely offered promotions first. It is just human nature to be drawn to a smiling face. A person with a smile just seems more approachable that a person with a scowl.
In Dr. Michael Mostofi's personalized smile consultation, he can figure out the best way for you to feel more confident about your smile so that you will not hesitate to flash that smile all the time. Give his office a call today to find out how you can get the smile you have always wanted.
If you are seeking a gorgeous smile that makes you look radiantly younger, then you may be a candidate for veneers. Veneers are wafer- thin shells of porcelain that are applied over the surface of the teeth to create a new smile. They are used for discolored, worn, chipped, or misaligned teeth. The preparation involves removing the unsightly portion of the tooth and then carefully shaping the tooth for the new veneer. An impression is taken and sent to the laboratory to craft the final tooth restoration piece. On the second visit, the veneer is applied and polished to give a lustrous finish. Dr. Michael Mostofi, a Aliso Viejo Cosmetic Dentist provides veneers that are only sculpted by a master ceramist to provide a natural, but beautiful result to each veneer patient.
There are many positives when it comes to dental veneers. They are very durable and very resistant to staining. This means that your gorgeous, new smile will last for years to come. Compared to other dental treatments like crowns, veneers tend to be a very conservative treatment for your teeth. Since the veneers are so thin, very little tooth structure needs to be removed to make the tooth look great. In some cases where the teeth are kind of small and there are spaces or gaps between the teeth, no tooth structure needs to removed at all. The new veneers can just be bonded to the teeth without any tooth preparation or any shots.
Most veneers are made of porcelain which gives the teeth a very life like appearance. Both porcelain and enamel are glass like in nature. This makes it so that light reflects off of them in a similar manner and is the reason why porcelain veneers look so natural. Even in our world of HD TV, celebrities and stars use porcelain veneers to get the perfect smile that still looks natural under those bright lights. Luckily, this technology is available to all of our patients.
When deciding if veneers are right for you, it is important to consider the training and experience of the dentist. Dr. Michael Mostofi has been extensively trained in the art and science of veneers. Give his office a call to see if veneers are the right treatment for you to get the beautiful smile you have always wanted.
