Chipped Tooth

Are you tired of seeing discolored, chipped, or misaligned teeth whenever you look into the mirror? 

Perhaps you love your coffee and/or wine a tad more than everyone else. Or, maybe you were just dealt a bad genetic hand.

Whatever your reasons, you don’t have to put up with bad teeth. A smile makeover can enhance your teeth’s appearance and give you the confidence to unleash one of the most powerful social assets – a genuine grin.

What is a smile makeover?

A smile makeover is a form of cosmetic dentistry that combines multiple treatments to address the unique aesthetic needs of a particular patient. Depending on your needs, a smile makeover may include: 

  • Teeth whitening
  • Getting porcelain veneers
  • Dental bonding 
  • Gingival contouring 
  • Getting new dental crowns
  • Orthodontia
  • Dental implantation

Your dentist will advise you on the best dental procedures for your teeth. 

Why get a smile makeover?

A dental makeover comes with several perks, including: 

1. Improved self-confidence

Bad teeth can ruin your self-esteem and make it hard to socialize with your peers. When you feel self-conscious about your teeth or gums, you’ll find it difficult to smile, speak, laugh, or even eat around others.

Getting a smile makeover will restore your confidence in your smile and alleviate feelings of nervousness or self-consciousness around other people. As a result, your self-esteem will improve – and so will your overall wellbeing.

2. Restore damaged teeth

It’s no secret that poor oral hygiene can do a number on your teeth. Worse still, old tooth restoration procedures can adversely affect how your teeth age. For instance, amalgam silver fillings expand and contract according to the temperature in your mouth. This can crack your teeth and predispose them to decay and bacterial infections.

Fortunately, a dental makeover can be an effective fix. Teeth whitening procedures can remove all discoloration, while porcelain crowns can repair and protect damaged teeth. 

3. Career boost

Do you feel like your abilities go unnoticed at your workplace? Are you constantly overlooked when promotions arise? Do you miss out on new job opportunities even though you have all the qualifications?  

Believe it or not – an unsightly smile could be holding you back!

In the corporate world, first impressions matter. Thus, if you’re not smiling or speaking up enough because of your crooked teeth, then you’ll appear timid. And since corporates want to work with confident professionals, they might overlook your qualifications.

A genuine, good-looking smile can be a powerful addition to your resume; and a smile makeover is the best way to get it.

4. Spruce up your love life

Bad teeth can put a lasting dent on your love life. Whether it’s hiding your teeth with “serious-face” photos online or being less inviting in person; unsightly teeth can make it hard to connect with a potential partner.

Getting a smile makeover will improve your self-esteem and appearance, making it easier to meet and connect with new people. 

5. It won’t hurt

Let’s face it; many people dread a visit to the dentist’s office. And while some of that fear is justified, getting a dental makeover is a welcome exception.

Most of the treatments involved when getting a smile makeover have little to no pain. Furthermore, you can always ask your dentist about oral sedation and other practices that’ll make the procedures more comfortable for you. 

A smile makeover will change your life!

Don’t let unsightly teeth hold you back. With a dental makeover, you can correct your imperfections and unlock limitless potential in all aspects of your life. Schedule for a smile makeover today!

Why the beautiful will always look great: Researchers find they can grimace and still look great

Beautiful people can get away with a scowl but 'plain Janes' will never be seen as attractive - even if they smile

  • Team say facial attractiveness remained steadfast no matter what expression a person displays
  • Unattractive people were seen an unappealing - even when smiling broadly

By Daily Mail Reporter

Published: | Updated:

Beautiful people look good even when they make the most ugly faces, scientists say.

Whether grimacing in disgust or gurning in surprise, they can’t help but appear appealing.

Unattractive people, on the other hand, are regarded as unattractive even if their face lights up with the broadest of smiles.

EnlargeUniversity of Portsmouth researchers say beautiful people are seen as good-looking even if they distort their faces into grimaces of disgust, surprise, fear or anger

Researchers say that those with beautiful faces look good even when they grimace: David Beckam (left) and Jose Mourinho (right), both renowned as good-looking men, pulling faces

HOW THEY DID IT

The study was conducted by asking 128 men and women to rate the attractiveness of 30 men and women, each of whom was photographed expressing happiness, neutral, sadness, surprise, fear, anger and disgust.

Both men and women rated attractiveness of each face relatively equally, indicating the sex of the model and the sex of the person rating them played no part in their decision.

But expressions can still make a small difference as a signal of whether someone is worth pursuing as a mate, the researchers found.

Dr Ed Morrison, of the Department of Psychology at the University of Portsmouth, wanted to study whether attractiveness was more to do with how you look or how you present yourself.

He found facial attractiveness remained steadfast in other people’s minds no matter what expression a person displays.

Dr Morrison said: 'The hard tissues of the face are unchangeable and it seems people, both men and women, can tell if the underlying structure of the face is attractive or not no matter what expression a person has on their face.

'Evolutionary theory has long suggested facial attractiveness is one of the key cues of someone’s biological quality and that humans prefer an attractive face when choosing a mate.'

The study did find small differences in how others rated a person’s attractiveness based on the expression on their face, but the variations were limited and only about half as important as variations between the people themselves.

Also, happy expressions were no more attractive than neutral expressions.

Dr Morrison said: 'People do make decisions about the attractiveness of others based on their facial expression, but this has less to do with deciding if they are attractive and much more to do with deciding if someone is worth pursuing as a mate.

'For example, disgust or contempt are a clear signal to not pursue, while smiling or neutral expressions are likely to mean mating effort will be rewarded.'

The study was conducted by asking 128 men and women to rate the attractiveness of 30 men and women, each of whom was photographed expressing happiness, neutral, sadness, surprise, fear, anger and disgust.

Both men and women rated attractiveness of each face relatively equally, indicating the sex of the model and the sex of the person rating them played no part in their decision.

Dr Morrison said: 'Our findings are consistent with the idea men and women see attractiveness in the same way.

'This is probably because people have to be able to evaluate the attractiveness of the opposite sex as potential mates and the attractiveness of people of the same sex as competitors.'

The research is published in the Journal of Nonverbal Behavior.

  • Valentine's Day is right around the corner, and if you're looking to land a date there are a few things you can do to make yourself more attractive to potential partners. 
  • Researchers have identified 12 science-backed tricks to appear more attractive, including smiling and wearing red.
  • But it's about more than just physical appearance. Pay attention to how you talk to people, who you hang out with, and the way you carry yourself.

Valentine's Day is right around the corner and if you're looking to land a first date, or just spend some time with a significant other, there are a few steps that experts suggest you take to make yourself appear more attractive. 

But it's about more than just your physical appearance. Attractiveness is impacted by the way you carry yourself, the folks you hang out with, and how you talk to people — plus a whole lot more.

Here are 12 science-backed strategies for appearing more attractive.

Make 'em laugh. Women are more attracted to men with a sense of humor.

In one study, men were more successful at getting women's numbers when they had recently told a joke to a group of friends.

In that study, a psychologist asked three men to tell (or not tell) a funny joke to their friends at a bar while a woman sat at a nearby table. Then those men were instructed to approach the woman and ask for her number. After the man had left, an experimenter approached the woman and asked her to rate the man on attractiveness and intelligence and to indicate how much she would want to date the man long-term.

Results showed that the guys who told jokes were three times as likely to get the woman's number as the men who didn't. They were also rated more attractive and intelligent.

"The effect of a great sense of humor on women's attractions might be partially explained by the fact that funny people are considered to be more social and more intelligent, things that women seek in a mate," anthropologist Gil Greengross writes.

Surround yourself with friends. People look better when they're in a group.

In one experiment featured in a 2013 study by researchers at the University of California-San Diego, 25 male and female undergrads looked at 300 photos of women's faces — once in a group photo and once in an isolated portrait. Another experiment repeated the same procedure with 18 undergrads looking at photos of men's faces. Results showed that participants rated both men and women significantly more attractive when they were pictured in a group. They call this the "cheerleader effect."

"Having a few wingmen or wingwomen may indeed be a good dating strategy, particularly if their facial features complement and average out one's unattractive idiosyncrasies," study authors Drew Walker and Edward Vul write.

Skip the small talk. People who ask deep questions feel more connected than people who talk about superficial topics.

In a 1997 study, State University of New York psychologist Arthur Aron and colleagues separated two groups of undergrads and paired them off, giving each duo 45 minutes to answer a set of questions. 

One question set was small talk, and the other was increasingly probing. The people who asked deeper questions felt more connected. Two people who participated in the study even fell in love months later, which is an intriguing — though probably insignificant — result.

Be a leader.

For one study, researchers recruited 49 Wisconsin legislative aides to rate the attractiveness of different politicians. Sure enough, participants rated the leaders as more attractive if they aligned with their political commitments (Republican or Democrat).

"In contrast with research traditions that treat physical attractiveness as a static trait, our findings highlight the importance of group membership as a lens for perceiving familiar leaders' physical attractiveness," concluded lead author Kevin Kniffin and his colleagues.

Put on a happy face. Science says a cheerful facial expression may compensate for relative unattractiveness.

In two experiments, researchers in Switzerland examined the relationship between attractiveness and smiling.

They found that the stronger the smile, the more attractive a face looked.

Get a pet. Being a dog owner may signal that a man is nurturing and capable of making long-term commitments. It can also make someone appear more approachable.

In a 2014 experiment, 100 Israeli women read vignettes about men. Some of the men were described as "cads": they would cheat on their partner and get into fights. The other men were described as stereotypical "dads": they would work hard at their job and take good care of their kids.

Whenever the story featured a cad who owned a dog, women rated that man as a more suitable long-term partner than a cad who didn't own a dog. Cads with dogs were even rated slightly more attractive than dads with dogs.

Being ugly : My Experience

Mom was still asleep and Katya thought that now is the time to please her. Mom was lying on her stomach, her charming legs were slightly parted, as if ready for what was about to happen. Katya threw back the blanket and touched her pink lips to her mother's tender neck, then gently, with the tip of her tongue, she sank down to her shoulders.

Then she began to cover her mother's back with kisses and soon came to sweet buns. The caring daughter parted her mother's ass.

In general, all of our seven consisted of down-and-outs, and when we planned a bachelorette party, everyone understood that it would be something. The beginning was fantastic, a limousine walking around.
