When browsing through a magazine, or flipping through television channels, it might seem as though everyone has a bright, beautiful smile. In reality, many people feel less than confident in the appearance of their teeth. Whether your teeth are dull and discolored, misaligned, or affected by chips or cracks, Dr. Mungcal’s expertise can transform your smile to a beautiful, healthy facial feature. In our downtown Los Angeles practice, you can experience the benefits of quality cosmetic dentistry firsthand, and gain total confidence in your smile.
Cosmetic dentistry is designed specifically for the correction and enhancement of smile aesthetics. The tendency to smile is natural, and it should not be inhibited by lack of confidence. It is understandable that people hide their smile behind a hand or closed teeth when their teeth are not as they wish. This inhibition to smile openly diminishes personal interactions, and decreases the enjoyment you experience in life.
Hiding a smile leads to a number of social and profession issues, because those who smile infrequently are seen as shy, timid, unfriendly, or even hostile. Although you may be anything but these things, your apprehension to show your teeth could make you seem so. Surveys show that more than 80 percent of adults find a nice smile to be an important social and professional asset, a key factor in that all-important first impression. Addressing cosmetic concerns with the appropriate form of professional treatment encourages you to smile often, showing your true self to those with whom you interact.
Correcting certain cosmetic issues also benefits oral health in addition to boosting social confidence. Although it may seem that misaligned teeth, gaps, or a cracked tooth are simply aesthetic problems, these issues can result in the encouragement of bacterial activity, and can cause discomfort in the tongue, gums, or lips. Misaligned teeth might impede clear speech and make chewing challenging. Correcting such cosmetic impairments, then, leads the way to a truly healthy and beautiful smile.
Cosmetic dentistry can bring you to your best smile. At Downtown Dental, we want you to have a beautiful, healthy smile for life. Dr. Mungcal, and our friendly team of dental professionals, will help you determine the most suitable form of cosmetic treatment, and will carry out each step of your smile enhancement with gentle, compassionate care.
