Unlock your smile’s true potential
Cosmetic dentistry goes far beyond what you may assume. Often it is a field of dentistry which is associated purely with enhancing the aesthetics of your smile on a superficial basis, and a privilege which is afforded only by those with disposable income and time on their hands. However, in truth it is actually a field of dentistry which has the power to transform the lives of those who seek it in every aspect. Treatments such as dental implants in Harley Street go beyond the superficial and restore the ability to speak, eat and smile to the patients who seek them, which can have a massively positive effect on their social and mental wellbeing, and open up a world of previously unattainable opportunities and possibilities.
Make a lasting impression
It is said that first impressions are key to success, in any regard. However, some are perhaps unaware of the scientific rationale behind the importance of making a good first impression. Those who live with missing teeth often struggle to make even the most basic of human connections, out of the fear and embarrassment that comes with having large or unsightly spaces within their teeth. Often, life-changing opportunities such as job interviews or first dates can be impacted greatly by having missing teeth, as your smile is one of the first and most influential factors that a person notices when they first meet you – and will determine their opinion of you irreversibly from then on. From the moment that the person of interest, be it a potential employer or the partner of your dreams, lays eyes on you – within the first 15 seconds they’ve you’ve already made a lasting impression on them which is almost impossible to reverse. Studies have shown that your appearance, and particularly your smile, plays a significant (57%) role on how you are, and will continue to be, perceived within their eyes. As such, those who have gaps within their teeth often struggle to achieve the opportunities and successes of those with a healthy, full set of teeth.
Take back control
While this primal instinct to judge a person within a split second may be unfair and biased, it is one of the fundamentals of all human connections and not something to be disregarded. As such, those who wish to excel in all aspects of life, but suffer from missing teeth, ought to take the initiative to retake control of their lives and their goals by seeking out cosmetic dental implants. Implants fully restore patients’ smiles in a way which is almost as effective as natural teeth and can reverse a great number of detrimental effects such as bone or speech loss. They work on a far more permanent basis than other, similar treatments such as crowns or bridges as they address the missing tooth at it’s very root. Implants work by creating a prosthetic root from a specialised dental titanium-alloy metal, which fuses within the bone tissue of the patient. Once the prosthetic root has been fused within the patient’s jaw bone, it is firmly and permanently embedded there. From there, a replica tooth is fixed within the root and the gap within their mouths is filed in a way which looks and feels almost exactly like a natural tooth and restores their ability to enjoy all the privileges that are afforded to those with a full and healthy smile, and gives them the self-confidence to seize every opportunity that they are owed.
