My experience from the first time I walked through the door has been extremely positive and my teeth have not looked or been this good for many years. My recent treatment (a crown) was carried out with the utmost care and skill and looks great.

Does a trip to the dentist put a smile on your face? No? Well, you may soon find that it does thanks to cosmetic dentistry. Up to 19 million people in the UK believe they could feel better about themselves if they improved their smile through dental work, according to a recent Ipsos-Mori Survey.

Almost half of the people surveyed believed an attractive smile would improve their looks. But the benefits of cosmetic dentistry, when carried out by dental professionals such as at Riverside Dental in Norwich, are far from superficial.

Here are 5 ways cosmetic dentistry in Norwich can make your life better:

1. Improve your health

Some cosmetic dental procedures can benefit your dental health as well as your dental aesthetics. Take teeth straightening; with straightened teeth there are fewer places for plaque and tartar to build up, reducing your chances of developing tooth decay and gum disease. The latter is linked to an increased risk of stroke, diabetes and heart disease. Many of us are part of the growing trend of fitness enthusiasts and as such, some use a personal trainer, to enhance results and improve their fitness.

Inlays, onlays, crowns & veneers restore the look, function and form of damaged or fractured teeth and dental implants provide the most reliable method today of restoring of missing teeth.

2. Boost your confidence

When you smile, your teeth are on display for all to see. If you’re embarrassed about stains, chips or discolouration of your teeth, your self-confidence can take a hit. With teeth you know look great, you can talk, smile and laugh with confidence.

3. Enhance your job prospects

Getting back to the Ipsos-MORI survey, almost a million people in the UK feel they struggle meeting people face-to-face because of an unattractive smile. When it comes to job interviews, first impressions count! Go in with a frown instead of a smile and making a good impression becomes a lot harder. Even once you’ve got the job, a smile can smooth interactions with colleagues, making you stand out as an approachable, helpful employee. Your smile really is your best CV!

4. Up the romance

First impressions once more come to the fore when it comes to dating. A stunning smile can win over your love interest! But more than that, feeling good about the way you look conveys a level of confidence that is undeniably attractive and a smile has a big part to play in that.

5. Leave you feeling happier

With an attractive smile crafted through tailored cosmetic dentistry, you’ll be smiling more often and that releases more happy hormones called endorphins. These endorphins don’t just make you feel happier, they also reduce stress levels.

So to feel better, look better and live better, smile more!! If your teeth are holding you back on all fronts, don’t dismay.
