Did you know that a majority of Americans feel a person’s smile can impact his or her ability to succeed in the workplace? This may seem somewhat extreme, but it’s true. According to a study by the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, 75 percent of adults feel that an unattractive smile can be detrimental to person’s chance for career success. Since your smile is one of the very first things that people notice about you, the team here at Fulbright Cosmetic & Reconstructive Dentistry understands the importance of achieving and maintaining a beautiful, healthy smile. In a recent New Beauty blog post, “Rejuvenate Your Aging Smile,” editors and cosmetic dentists describe the fact that no matter how well-groomed a person is, if he or she has a stained smile or chipped teeth, it can take away from the vibrant and polished image they wish to project. Hence, one of the best ways to revive your smile is through a complete smile makeover. Smile makeovers can enhance a person’s smile through techniques such as dental bonding, porcelain veneers, teeth whitening, and a variety of other options. Our cosmetic dentist, Dr. Michael Fulbright was specifically quoted for his expert opinion regarding treatment for correcting a gummy smile. An excess of gum tissue can make the teeth appear too short, which can also make one look older, he explains in the article. According to Dr. Fulbright, the two methods used for cosmetic gum reshaping are laser treatment or periodontal surgery. Also, depending on the length of a patient’s teeth, restoring the teeth with veneers or crowns can help produce optimal results. With many different options available, rejuvenating your smile is something many adults can achieve, Dr. Fulbright says. And, with the aid of a qualified cosmetic dentist, he or she can help you determine which treatments will help create your own unique, dream smile.
