Great looking teeth tends to increase your self-confidence because it is the one aspect you show off to the world and the most looked at part of your face. Having that knowledge that your teeth look amazing follows through into supporting your self-esteem and hence self-confidence.
In fact, cosmetic studies have shown that a whopping 89% people seek out cosmetic smile enhancements in order to increase physical attractiveness to increase their self-esteem.
Your self-confidence can be raised by even minor improvements in your smile and do not necessarily have to be full-blown smile makeovers. Treatments include laser teeth whitening, minor contouring of the enamel surfaces or even minimal bonding treatments with tooth-coloured filling materials.
Also, physically seeing whole white natural-looking teeth rather than missing teeth and dark fillings has an astounding effect on how old or young you feel. This, in turn, has an impact on your self-confidence as whiter brighter teeth and smile makes you feel good about yourself.
