Smiling is more important than you know. It releases endorphins, reduces blood pressure and pain, improves your immune system, and increases endurance. All good reasons to wear your smile! In fact, smiling lowers stress, increases our self-esteem and mental well-being, and helps us maintain relationships.

That’s why smiling is especially important in professional situations. Are you looking for a raise, a new job, or to gain footing in a new position? Enhancing the beauty of your smile can help you smile more and level up your professional game.

Change Your Smile, Change Your Life

Your smile helps relax a stressful situation and shows that you’re confident, calm, and collected. When you’re in your next interview, make a point to have eye contact with your interviewer and smile. Smiling improves your interpersonal relationships! Such a small thing that doesn’t cost you a dime could improve your chances of earning a new position or promotion.

If you’re already in a great position, smiling can help you for the same reasons. Being the boss often means that your mood sets the tone for the day for your employees. Showing that you’re happy to be there makes other people happy too, and happy people are more productive. Choose to promote a happy work environment. You can start by smiling!

Now that you know how important it is to smile, what if you can’t or don’t want to because of your smile’s appearance? Body language is typically the first impression that people have of you, and it starts with your smile or lack thereof. People with good-looking teeth are likely to get the job, promotion, or team respect over someone with poor oral hygiene. Having poor teeth looks less professional. But you can do something about it at Burkburnett Family Dental.

Teeth Whitening

Teeth whitening is one of the simplest things you can do to upgrade your smile and professional life. Discolored teeth give the impression of poor oral hygiene. You can get rid of those stains with professional teeth whitening. Smiling whitening can lift your teeth to ten shades lighter and hide impurities. If you choose to come into the office for professional whitening, we can have your smile looking bright within an hour. Burkburnett Familly Dental also offers take-home whitening kits that have slower results, but you won’t need a trip to the dentist to achieve the results you’re looking for—except for the initial consultation and exam.

People have different enamel shades, and your smile can only become as white as your natural enamel allows. If you’re still looking for a whiter smile or have stains that whitening can’t fix, we have another solution for you.

Dental Veneers and Composite Bonding

Dental veneers and composite bonding can whiten your smile and put new faces on existing teeth.

Also called porcelain veneers, dental veneers are ultra-thin sheets that fit over the front of your teeth. You can get a full mouth of veneers or just a few, but either way, you can choose the color of white that you’re looking for. In addition to whitening, veneers can cover up chips, gaps between teeth, crooked teeth, and even give them a completely new shape. Many people view veneers as a complete smile makeover.

Composite bonding repairs minor imperfections that don’t warrant a complete restoration, such as a veneer or crown. The best part is that composite bonding is budget-friendly, conservative, and completed in one appointment.

Gum and Tooth Recontouring

Gum recontouring is for people who feel they have a “gummy smile”—when your gum tissue covers too much of your teeth and makes them look small. We can reshape your gums to show your beautiful teeth.

Tooth recontouring is similar to gum recontouring, but we remove the excess tooth material instead of excess gum tissue. This could be unevenly shaped teeth or teeth that have been worn down by grinding. Combine tooth recontouring, bonding, and teeth whitening for a budget-friendly smile makeover!

Smile Makeover

“Smile makeover” is a procedure that combines two or more different techniques to give you a completely new smile. In Burkburnett, TX, more and more people are taking advantage of smile makeovers. You don’t have to live with a smile you don’t love; get a smile makeover by calling (940) 569-4901 or scheduling an appointment online.
