The Importance of a Healthy Smile
Serious Physical Risks of Not Taking Care of the Mouth
“After every storm the sun will smile; for every problem there is a solution, and the soul’s indefeasible duty is to be of good cheer.” – William R. Alger
Dental fear, anxiety, and general embarrassment over unattractive teeth prevent many people from scheduling and attending recommended regular dental visits, eventually causing an unhealthy smile. Left untreated, gum disease will take over and that is a serious problem, not just for your mouth but also for your entire body.
Restore the Health of Your Mouth and Live a Longer, Fuller Life
Many patients don’t realize how much the health of the mouth affects the rest of the body. A tooth infection can easily spread into surrounding tissues, leading to abscess, swelling, fever, and in extreme cases even death. That’s why one of the biggest priorities in proper dental treatment is disinfecting and preventing reinfection. If you can eradicate gum disease infection that causes bad breath, you’ll also reduce your risk of heart disease and oral cancer. One way to do this is through skilled treatment, which will restore your mouth to a healthy state.
Appearance and Health
“A woman whose smile is open and whose expression is glad has a kind of beauty no matter what she wears.”
– Anne Roiphe
Everyone knows the power of a beautiful smile: it’s one of the first things strangers notice about you and one of the key factors in making a good initial impression. Missing permanent teeth takes away the confidence and comfort of a gorgeous grin by breaking apart the symmetry your mouth was designed to have.
That’s why it’s so important for patients to be given a personal, customized, revolutionary solution that can solve their unique set of dental challenges. Regardless of the issues treated, all patients should be able to leave the dental office after their first visits with a healthier, aesthetically pleasing smile, looking years younger and feeling confident.
A Nice Smile Is Priceless
There are countless books nowadays that discuss how you can change your life by thinking positively. The books talk about how, by behaving in a positive manner, you can change your life.
Interestingly enough, the easiest way to behave positively is to smile. In fact, many of those books and the psychologists writing them will tell you to remind yourself to smile. Smiling is at the root of behaving positively. You just can’t do it without smiling. If you are ashamed to smile or hide your smile, how can you change your life? The very act of smiling can be painful and evoke a whole range of negative emotions.
In order to practice the positivity of smiling, a person needs a smile that he or she can be proud of or at least be willing to show. If the condition of your smile is preventing you from smiling, there is hope. Through proper treatment, you can restore your smile, making you confident to smile at the world. It’s a decision that will change your life.
Each month or year that you wait to do something about your teeth is another month or year lost. The value of your investment decreases with each day that slips away. Your new smile will last a lifetime, and the longer you wait, the less you can smile confidently and the longer you have to hide your smile.
A nice smile is truly priceless. It’s not about the teeth or the implants or veneers. It’s about something much deeper. You can’t put a price on your self-esteem and living your life to the fullest. You can’t put a price on a beautiful smile—it’s something that changes your life.
The point at which you decide to restore your smile will be a pivotal turning point for you. With each passing year, a certain portion of your life will pass, bringing down the value of your investment. Comprehensive treatment will still benefit you, but doing it when you’re younger lets you reap the greatest benefits. You’ll have fewer bad habits to break, fewer negative experiences to get over.
The sooner you realize that you don’t smile because your smile isn’t in good condition, the sooner you should do something about it. You will be able to change your life earlier, eliminate bad habits quicker, live your life to the fullest sooner, and enjoy your investment for longer. You can’t put a price on that. Don’t wait for a catalyst. The time is now.

Look Younger and Be Healthier
White, attractive looking teeth are typically associated with youth, health, and beauty; so when a patient gets a new, healthier smile, that often leads to a new, healthier life. An attractive appearance causes changes that extend to all kinds of other areas. Whether it’s smoking, dieting, or making healthier choices, patients often realize that feeling good about their teeth makes them feel good about themselves, too. Plus, people who feel good about themselves tend to live longer—so a new smile is more than just aesthetic, it can also be the ticket to enjoying more of life.
A New Smile Is Just the Beginning
Having a beautiful smile changes everything. Take smoking: Comprehensive dental treatment can certainly help smokers obtain a whiter, healthier smile, but it can also give them the encouragement to quit altogether. Smoking can cause gum disease and dry mouth, which can lead to cavities and decay, and the habit also definitely worsens gum disease for those who already have it. With new laws discouraging smoking and more and more research revealing just how bad it is for people’s health, every single smoker seems to be trying to quit.
What many people don’t know is that a new smile is a powerful motivator for kicking the smoking habit. Looking good and feeling energized are positive experiences for anyone, but especially for smokers, as having new, healthy teeth can be just the push they need to quit. For most smokers, a new smile feels like a new lease on life—and choosing to stop smoking is a convenient side effect.
In other cases, new teeth push people to move towards other changes, whether diet, exercise, or weight loss. Because a new smile is so powerful, it can be a catalyst for all kinds of positive results. It happens all the time. With a new smile, it feels like anything is possible: that’s why a new smile is just the beginning.
Enhanced Quality of Life and Increased Confidence
You can experience an enhanced quality of life with natural-looking teeth designed to appear, feel, and perform just as beautifully as if you were born with them. You don’t have to let dentures, missing teeth, or unattractive teeth keep you from experiencing the best life possible. You can be proud of your smile and smile freely and often.
Has a lack of confidence over your smile held you back from something in life? A promotion? More sales? A dating life? It doesn’t have to be that way. Getting a brand-new smile may sound too good to be true, but hundreds of patients know it isn’t.
They’ve shaved their moustaches for good. They’ve stopped hiding smiles and been proud to show them off. They are out in the world, getting what they want out of life. You can look better, feel better, improve your love life, fast-track your career, and find motivation to be healthier, whether you’re 25 or 50, single or divorced, a parent or a grandparent. It’s as simple as a few easy hours in a dental office.
A new, beautiful smile means confidence, increased energy, confidence to move forward, and inspiration to pursue dreams. It means looking great and feeling great. It means being ready to find a new partner to share life with. It means living the life you’ve always wanted.
Brian was the typical unhappy middle-aged man, stuck in a rut that he thought he couldn’t get out of. When he came in for dental care, he was in a bad marriage where he felt unloved, unappreciated, and in many ways abused. Because his smile was so unattractive, however, he never had the courage to leave his wife. Only after receiving a full mouth reconstruction, which drastically improved his appearance and revolutionized his confidence level, he decided to do something about it. He filed for a divorce because he was no longer afraid. His new smile gave him a new perspective and a new level of courage that nothing else could.
Regardless of your current situation, you are guaranteed to benefit from a new smile and the accompanying happiness it brings. Imagine a life without embarrassment over ugly, yellow, discolored, unattractive, missing, broken, or decayed teeth. Imagine looking in the mirror and loving what you see. With the right specialized approach, these dreams aren’t just dreams; they’re reality.
