Smiling Is Good For You
Some people don’t like their smiles for one reason or another. Discolored teeth, crooked teeth, or broken teeth are just a few of the reasons people can be self-conscious about their smiles.
At Synergy Dental Center in Gillette, WI, we don’t want anyone to feel that way. We have the staff and the technology to give you a dazzling smile.
If you don’t like your smile, you don’t smile. Or if you smile, it’s with a hand over your mouth and maybe your lips closed over your teeth. By not smiling, you’re missing out on some important businesses, in your social life and with your health.
Smiling Helps You Socially
If you think of the people you’ve met in your life that made an instant positive impression on you, they probably had a big smile. There’s something about a smile that makes you more approachable. Smiling is more likely to draw people to you rather than push them away. Other social benefits of smiling include:
- A good smile makes you more attractive to people.
- A great smile can make you appear more confident and self-assured. That could earn you more success in your job.
- Smiling naturally lifts your face and can make you look younger.
Your smile is important in your social life and your work life, but it’s also good for your mood and health.
Smiling Can Improve Your Mood
It sounds backwards. Usually you smile when you’re in a good mood. But did you know that smiling can actually put you in a good mood? When you smile your body releases endorphins. This is triggered by the movements of the muscles in your face. Endorphins not only make us feel happy but they lower stress levels.
Smiling Helps Your Heart
Smiling can slow the heart and relax the body. People who smile and laugh often are less likely to develop heart disease. Some studies have indicated that people who smile more tend to live longer.
Want A Better Smile?
The fact is, if you don’t like the way your smile looks, you won’t smile as much. There’s no reason to live with a smile you don’t like!
At Synergy Dental Center, we can transform your smile into something you’ll be happy to show off. Here are a few of the services we offer that can give you that smile:
Your teeth can become discolored for a number of reasons: medications you take, smoking, drinking coffee, etc. With our professional teeth whitening service, we can brighten your smile.
We will custom-fit you for a special whitening tray and supply you with professional strength whitening gel. You’ll use the trays and whitening gel for about 15 – 45 minutes a day for just a few days. It’s an easy way to amp up your smile.
A dental crown is a restoration that is designed to repair teeth that have been damaged due to disease, decay, or injury. It’s customized to match the shade of your natural teeth as closely as possible and then it’s bonded over a prepared tooth. Crowns can even fill gaps left by missing teeth. Our crowns are strong and long-lasting.
Our veneers are ultra-thin shells made out of dental ceramic porcelain that are bonded directly on your teeth. We craft them to look like natural teeth. Dental veneers replace your tooth’s natural surface and they can dramatically change your smile. Some of the flaws dental veneers can correct are:
A dental implant is a titanium post (acting like a tooth root) that is positioned into the jawbone beneath the gumline.This allows the dentist to mount a replacement tooth or bridge into that area.
You might have a single tooth missing in the front of your mouth that has kept you from smiling far too long. Or you may opt for a set of implants to replace multiple teeth. At Synergy Dental Center we offer a number of implant options.
All-on-X® Dental Implants (also known as Same Day Teeth). These are recommended if you’re missing an entire arch of teeth. We use four or six dental implants to support a full arch of replacement teeth.
Mini dental implants. These are a smaller, easier-to-place version of an implant. Placing them is not as invasive as that of traditional implants.
Implant-Retained and -Supported Dentures. Implant-retained dentures involve dental implants, a denture, and ball attachments. Implant-supported dentures work like that, except they use a bar attachment mechanism.
