It’s National Women’s Health Week! In general, women tend to take better care of their oral health than men. In fact, studies show that women have a more positive attitude towards dental visits, are 26 percent more likely than men to floss daily, and get more embarrassed by cosmetic imperfections and missing teeth. Dr. Burds can help restore a woman’s confidence and improve her beauty with a smile makeover.
A Natural Enhancement
Women often buy makeup and hair products to hide their ages and improve their appearances. However, about 70 percent of men agree that a woman looks more beautiful when she is smiling than when she is wearing makeup. The American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry revealed that a smile will increase your attractiveness, popularity, and success. Additionally, the American Academy of Periodontology found that people are seven times more likely to have smile enhancements than face lifts. Smiling, however, acts as a natural face lift. When you smile, your facial muscles lift up and your eyes narrow, making you look younger and more energetic.
Smile Makeovers in Des Moines
A recent survey by the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry found that 60 percent of women received cosmetic treatments last year—compared with only 40 percent of men. Since women are so concerned with keeping a fresh image, cosmetic dentistry can remove chips, stains, and other flaws that make your smile look worn. Professional teeth whitening, for example, can remove years of staining in just one hour. Additionally, cosmetic bonding can hide blemishes and instantly brighten your grin. Furthermore, about 74 percent of women and only 57 percent of men would feel embarrassed by a missing tooth. Fortunately, Dr. Burds can restore your appearance and function with dental implants.
