I have always believed that a smile is one of the greatest forms of communication. One of the most rewarding aspects of being an orthodontist is my ability to help patients attain brilliant, confident smiles.
Patients who do not like their smiles are often self-conscious and hide their teeth when talking or smiling, most of the time without even realizing it. I can quickly identify people who do not like their smiles because they block their mouths with their hands while laughing or smile without revealing their teeth. Another telltale sign is when someone is more expressive with their eyes to draw attention away from their mouth.
At Braces by White, we like to say we are the home of happier, more confident smiles. By focusing on proper jaw development, correcting bites and straightening teeth, my patients end up with beautiful smiles they’re delighted to show off.
After orthodontic treatment to straighten teeth, patients are more confident, laugh more and even perform better at school and work.
Smiling really does contribute to a person’s happiness and success, and smiling helps to generate more positive emotions and improve a person’s mood. It decreases the stress-induced hormones that can negatively affect your physical and mental health, and people who smile automatically appear to look younger.
