New Year, New You!
Are you ready to jump into the new year with enthusiasm? The start of the year is often when people make resolutions to improve their lives, focus on their health, or move up in their careers. Many people are self-conscious when doing something new due to their appearance. Change is central to most resolutions, but you need the confidence to step forward fearlessly to make those changes.
How Your Oral Health Affects Your Appearance
You may not realize how much the condition of your teeth can affect your facial structures and appearance. Missing teeth are visible when you smile, but others often notice something a bit “off” about your appearance, even if you cover them. When your teeth are missing, they can’t support your cheeks. The result is a sunken appearance that can make you look years older.
If you’ve replaced your missing teeth with dentures, you’ve taken the first step toward looking and feeling better about yourself. However, if your dentures are five or more years old, now is the time to replace them. Daily wear contributes to acrylic dentures wearing down so that you look older than your age. Additionally, your dentures may be wearing unevenly. Ill fitted or worn out dentures may begin to slip, causing embarrassment and inconvenience.
Appearance and Self-Confidence
Looking older than you are or being unable to smile comfortably takes a psychological toll. Your self-perception is affected, and you don’t feel as confident. It can dramatically affect everything you do – or don’t do – in the new year. Interviewing for a job is never easy, but your first impression won’t be good if you are afraid to smile or look old and tired. Even your social life is impacted if your teeth or dentures make you uncomfortable or self-conscious. You may cover your mouth with your hand or simply stop smiling. Even eating is more difficult with unhealthy or missing teeth, making it challenging to maintain a healthy diet.
You Don’t Have to Look Older Than You Really Are
What can you do to make this year an amazing one? Revitalize your outlook and your confidence. It may simply start by boosting your self-esteem and improving your health with new dentures that restore your proper bite and more youthful appearance! With new, properly fitted dentures, you can enjoy all the foods you love, eat healthy, crunchy fruits and vegetables, and stop worrying about your dentures slipping, shifting, or clicking. You will be more apt to smile and laugh freely which should help energize you for a bright new year.
Properly fitted dentures can shave years off your life. Straight, white replacement teeth that support your cheeks and are properly aligned give you a more youthful appearance and transform your smile. You’ll look and feel better about yourself, and that wonderful feeling of youth and confidence often spill over into other areas of your life. Get ready to stride into that job interview, ask your crush on a date this Valentine’s Day, or smile with joy in family photos.
Is It Time to Replace Your Dentures?
We recommend replacing your dentures every 4-6 years to ensure a good fit and comfort. Most dental insurances cover replacement every five years, and you can get your current dentures repaired or relined more frequently. If you want to start the New Year right, investing in high-quality, custom dentures can make you feel like a brand new you!
