Who doesn't want to look younger — or better? Some people, surprisingly, may shy away from improving their appearance. In a world obsessed with looks, sometimes it is thought to be superficial to even consider cosmetic and beautification programs. You may feel the same way about altering your teeth. When your dentist installs dental implants however, it becomes more than just a cosmetic makeover.
Once in place, dental implants, helps you regain confidence and will make you look years younger. There's nothing superficial about it. There are other benefits as well, such as restored chewing functions, no gooey adhesives, the alleviation of painful gums and improved speech pattern.
There are many ways in which we age — and simply shrugging off poor teeth as part of aging can undermine more than your looks. In addition, consider that more than 36 million people in the United States have received dental implants or wear dentures. Dental implants have a success rate of over 90 percent and can take 20 years off of your appearance, giving you back your natural glow.
If you've lost your teeth due to aging, an accident or some other dental problem, don't think there is no solution available to you. Dental implants — artificial teeth that are placed into the jaw with the help of an artificial tooth root — can make you look good once again, completing your smile. They work better than bridgework, because they do not need the neighboring teeth for support.
The fact is, your Grand Rapids dentist can work within your budget and the procedure is very simple. A healthy smile conveys confidence and optimism, and is the focal point of many conversations. How people respond to you forms the basis of personal relationships and business partnerships. You owe it to yourself to show the world the best side of you.
So make it a promise to yourself to improve your appearance. Don't shy away from something that cannot only help you gain back some of the pleasures of living, but also make you look good while you're doing it.
