Is Your Smile Making a Good Impression for You?


The All Important First Impression: Your Smile!As the old saying goes, you never get a second chance to make a first impression! What is your smile saying about your when you first meet someone? Are they seeing a great smile?

We all know that a bright, white, beautiful smile can get us noticed. Many dental patients come to their Crown Council dentists for teeth whitening, porcelain veneers, and other cosmetic dental procedures to get their smile looking its best. One of the most common requests of Crown Council dentists is straight teeth.

But did you know there are actual health benefits to aligning those pearly whites?

  • Crowded and overlapping teeth make it harder for your toothbrush’s bristles to reach those tiny spots between teeth where bacteria collects. Food particles can also get trapped between teeth, and flossing gets harder when teeth overlap. Ever had to force your floss between teeth because of overcrowding? It might be time to see your Crown Council dentist about clear braces.
  • Crooked teeth usually come together unevenly when you bite and chew. This can impact your ability to chew your food and even lead to problems with digestion.
  • Uneven teeth can protrude into the mouth’s soft tissues (think the inside of your cheeks and lips) and cause discomfort. Over time this can lead to cuts and sores, or even infections.
  • Crooked teeth can be quite the headache – literally. Because irregular teeth wear unevenly on your jaw, the pressure can lead to chronic problems including jaw strain and headaches.
  • A twisted smile can lead to twisted speech! Tooth irregularities can be the culprit of several speech impediments, which can harm self-esteem and lead to poor performance in school or at work.

If you’ve been thinking about setting your smile straight, we hope this information helps you in your decision to visit your Crown Council dentist. Feel free to ask any questions you have about improving your smile. Whether you’re looking for Invisalign clear braces, porcelain veneers, teeth whitening, dental implants, or even a simple cleaning, your Crown Council dentist can answer any questions you might have.
