Smiling Mechanic

Your work performance shouldn’t suffer just because you’re afraid to smile. When you smile at work, you’re helping to transform not just your own mood but the moods of people around you, and they’ll notice you in a positive way. You’re seen as friendly, approachable, and trustworthy and your boss may feel your cheeriness merits positive points in a performance review.

If you don’t smile because you’re worried about what people will think of your teeth, simple cosmetic dentistry procedures can help you regain the joyful self-confidence you might have once had about your smile.


Bleaching and lightening teeth makes for a better smile.

Aside from regular cleanings and avoiding staining foods such as coffee, how can you get your smile to look lighter and more radiant? Bleaching is one of the possible answers – especially if you still have mostly natural teeth and no false teeth. Tooth bleaching and lightening allows you to lighten your smile so that you don’t feel low about your yellow or brown teeth.


Easy contouring procedures create better alignment.

Are your teeth crooked, or does one front tooth jut out a bit further than the other? Reshaping and contouring teeth is very easy and doesn’t even require anaesthesia! This procedure involves light sanding and buffing to wear down the enamel on a tooth so that it becomes smooth, chips disappear, and the tooth is angled to match the teeth around it.


Teeth can be capped or veneers applied to mask flaws.

If you have a broken or chipped tooth or a tooth mostly missing, you probably lack a lot of confidence in your smile – three in four people say that losing a teeth would make them feel negative emotions about their smile. Caps, veneers, and crowns are a few options your dentist may consider to correct your smile.

Cosmetic dentistry procedures are important when it comes to maintaining your quality of life. If you avoid smiling because you don’t feel good about your smile, you could be negatively affecting your work performance, so make sure you’re coming across as the well-rounded employee that you are!
