It seems as though the majority of patients seeking cosmetic dentistry are women. That is not to say that men do not, but often times, men are hesitant to undergo cosmetic dentistry for one reason or another.
Why do men seem to avoid cosmetic dentistry if left up to them? In the past, cosmetic procedures may have been deemed inappropriate for men, but this is the 21st century, let’s look past those limitations.
More than just looks
Cosmetic dentistry does more than just give you a gorgeous smile; it also improves the health of your teeth. When repairing teeth, making them straighter, or whitening them, that is not all that we are doing. We are restoring the integrity and strength of your teeth, which helps make your oral hygiene routine easier, and aids in preventing oral diseases such as tooth decay. In cosmetic dentistry, your smile makeover impacts the health of your mouth and your body.
It saves you money
Although it sounds counterintuitive, spend money to save money, but being proactive with your oral health will save you money in the long run. Prevention is the ideal method of guarding your oral health. Plus, if a problem does arise, it can be treated immediately instead of waiting until you feel pain.
It increases your earning potential
That’s right, cosmetic dentistry can increase your potential to earn more income. In fact, men with an attractive smile, on average, earn about 4% more than men with bad teeth earn. That amounts to about $2400 per year for the median income household. It could even help you land a job or promotion when you are up against younger candidates.
Improve your love life
A smile that is unattractive and unhealthy can dramatically impact your love life. The effects of an unhealthy smile are gum disease, bad breath, and even erectile dysfunction in men. Whether you are single or married, wouldn’t it be nice to get rid of your bad breath once and for all, and be able to smile with confidence?
Taking the next step
If you are a man that desires an attractive, healthy smile, what is holding you back? Do not let yourself succumb to the conventional thought that cosmetic dentistry is not for you because IT IS!
If not for anybody else, make the choice for yourself.
