We all have little quirks and features that we feel self-conscious about. The significance of these features, however, isn’t what’s important. It’s the way these flaws make us feel. Confidence is crucial in leading a happy life. It can help you get the career you want, make conversation more fulfilling, help you in your love life and help you form deeper connections with your friends and family. They say that you should learn to love yourself before anyone else and that is absolutely true.
One feature that a lot of us tend to feel insecure about is our teeth. We see the perfect Hollywood smiles in magazines, on billboards and in films and, after a while, we start to notice that aren’t teeth aren’t quite as white or as straight as these celebrities. For some, teeth are a serious source of low self-esteem and they might feel overly conscious about showing their teeth in public. They would prefer to eat in solitude and avoid smiling or opening their mouth too widely when they talk. Behaviour like this can lead to a toxic, or possibly non-existent, social life. If you expend most of your energy trying to avoid showing your teeth then you’re not taking part in the moment. You won’t hear the funny joke you’re being told or notice the attractive someone across the room that’s trying to get your attention. In a certain way, lacking confidence can prevent you from living your life.
It’s not an uncommon insecurity, though. Most of us don’t have perfect teeth. Our teeth are like a car. Over time as we use them unforeseen things happen. They get worn out, stained and chipped because we use them, not necessarily because we’re doing anything wrong. When a car gets worn out we fix it, so you should be able to do the same for your teeth. You can’t live your life trying to hide them. Teeth are a part of our face that’s just as crucial as our eyes and nose. Without your teeth, you just wouldn’t look like you. And it would be even more tiresome to spend your life trying to protect them. Unless you decide to live on a milk only diet, there will be foods and drinks that wear down our teeth that we can’t avoid. So, if your teeth are not working as they should or are looking less than healthy, there’s nothing wrong with giving them a ‘fresh coat of paint’.
Seeing a top London dentist could boost your confidence by 100% and completely change your attitude. With a pretty set of pearly whites you’ll probably find yourself smiling a lot more than you used to. You’ll feel more confident talking to people because you won’t be worried about them looking at your teeth. You’ll find yourself being the first one to volunteer to stand in the middle of the photograph and smile for the camera, because now you’ll feel that you have nothing to hide. Sometimes, it can just take one small change to completely change us. So, if you’re in need of a confidence boost, you might want to consider fixing your smile.
