When people in Swindon watch TV shows like Embarrassing Bodies or Extreme Makeover, they are introduced to a whole new world of cosmetic dentistry they never knew existed. The increase in media attention on the importance of a nice smile has meant that here at Clifton Dental Studio in Bristol, there has been a huge upsurge in the inquiries about available procedures. In the past, people associated such procedures and techniques with celebrities and the royal family but now, with prices lower and increased interest, far more people are viewing it as something worth spending a few quid on.
Cosmetic dentistry encompasses any dental procedure that improves the overall look of your smile. While such procedures are more widespread the terminology still links to its heritage with the rich and famous. For example, a smile improvement is often known as a smile makeover and particularly dazzling versions are often called Hollywood smiles or even a wedding smile. Kate Middleton was reported to have had work done on her smile before marrying Prince William and her perfectly aligned white smile was well documented on the big day.
Having a beautiful smile can have a massive effect on an individual’s self-confidence, self-esteem and personal relationships. Many people avoid smiling with their mouth open or feel embarrassed when they laugh due to discolouration of their teeth. Having strong self-confidence is one of the most important things in your life and should not be underestimated. It will help you in job interviews, meeting a potential partner, giving presentations and many other day to day scenarios in your life.
The wide variety of procedures and a big range of prices means that there is far more choice out there for consumers. It’s not just for stars. You too can have the smile of your dreams.
