The power of smiling: how to achieve a beautiful smile
How will a new smile change my life?
Everyone wants a beautiful smile. Your smile is usually the first thing people notice about you. A healthy smile can be an indication of a your overall health and happiness, while an unattractive smile is nothing but a turn off.
If you’ve lived with what you perceive to be an imperfect smile, just imagine how a beautiful smile could change not only your appearance, but also your life. You will feel more attractive, successful, vibrant, energetic.
With an enhanced smile, you may experience a sense of self-confidence and self-esteem as you never have before. That confidence may carry over and impact your personal and professional life as well. An enhanced smile will not only make you look good on the outside, but also feel good about yourself on the inside.
Professionals tell us of greater career success. Older patients look and feel decades younger. Sounds impossible, but it’s true. Think about how a new or improved smile would change your life… I don’t want anybody to know I’ve had my smile done. Will this look natural? While every case is unique, Dr Deliperi goal is to create the most natural smile possible. A style for your smile will be determined, taking into account your lifestyle, facial proportions, gender, age, complexion, hair and even eye color.
Most often, our patients hear questions like: “Have you changed your hair style?”, or “Have you lost weight?”. Their friends know something is different – they just don’t know what. Please, have a look at the following pictures showing an example of mock-up prior to full-mouth rehabilitation:

Suggestion in selecting a new cosmetic dentist:
Obviously, training and commitment to continuing education are of paramount importance. Just like medicine, dentistry changes significantly over the years, and your dentist must keep up.
Also, ask your dentist how they would design your new smile. What is their protocol, and how will you know if you will like the smile before it becomes final? Don’t be afraid to ask questions.
