A smile can do wonders. It’s a crucial part of communicating that can leave a lasting first impression on those around you.
So when feeling less than confident about your smile, it can affect you significantly both physically and emotionally.
“Studies have shown that over 75 per cent of Americans do not feel confident to smile in a picture, 45 per cent make judgments about people by the look of their smile,” says Dr. Brian Friedman, a leading dentist in Toronto. “While 75 per cent think that a beautiful smile helps people psychologically, over 65 per cent think that an attractive and healthy smile helps romantically.”
At his Deer Park Office, located steps from St. Clair Avenue and Yonge Street, Friedman offers a complete range of options to restore and enhance your smile, including crowns, implants, bridges, bonding, veneers and whitening. He is also a qualified provider of Invisalign, a relatively new orthodontic technology that can eliminate the need for metal braces in many cases.
With today’s emphasis on one’s teeth and smile, many people can feel the pressure to have a picture-perfect smile. However, Friedman believes that even a small change in a person’s smile can make a big difference in the way they look and feel. “It’s never too early or too late to begin improving the appearance of your smile,” Friedman explains. “There are so many more options today for correcting imperfections and, as in most areas of our lives, the technology is advancing all the time. If you’re not completely happy with your smile, you owe it to yourself to at least investigate the solutions that are available to you.”
Friedman shares his expertise on smile makeovers and how you can improve your smile in time for the holiday season.
