Whether your teeth are stained, missing, crooked, chipped, or cracked millions of people all over the world are afraid to grin because of their teeth and gums.

Your Richmond cosmetic dentist has the experience and the expertise to transform your less than attractive smile into a grin that is both healthy and beautiful.

The Advantages of a Healthy Smile

Esthetics are usually the first thing people think about when you mention the word smile. However, how it looks is only half the picture.

According to Dr. Daniel and Dr. Victoria Yeager, crooked, chipped, and cracked teeth can cause problems for healthy teeth as well. Cracked and chipped teeth are extremely difficult to brush making it easy for tooth decay to develop. Cracked and chipped teeth are also just as difficult to floss.

The Problems with Missing Teeth

If you have a missing tooth, your other teeth will do their best to compensate for the space by moving closer to it. Your top teeth will try to move into the space, while your abutment teeth will do the same. Your Richmond dentist explains that missing teeth wreck havoc for your other teeth and should be replaced, but that’s not all missing teeth will do for your smile.

The roots of your teeth exercise the bone keeping it alive. If you lose a tooth, the bone beneath will start to shrink immediately. This causes your face to sink in making you look 10 years older than you actually are.

The best replacement for missing teeth is dental implants, which act as real tooth roots keeping your jaw exercised.

An Unhealthy Smile isn’t Good for Self Esteem

Getting back to esthetics, unhealthy smiles make people feel less than and will undermine confidence. Chipped, cracked, and stained teeth also affect self-esteem.

It’s a fact that people who are confident and smile the minute they walk into a room are twice as likely to have more friends.

People who smile are also twice as likely to be the first choice when it comes to a promotion. That new job that you are hoping for could be yours, it really depends on how confident you are. Don’t forget, confidence starts with a healthy and happy smile.
