Cosmetic Dentist in Beverly Hills Discusses New Year, New You with Smile Makeovers
According to the latest statistics from the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry (AACD), 99.7% of all Americans believe a smile is an important social asset and 74% believe an unattractive smile could potentially harm a person’s chances for career success. Beverly Hills cosmetic dentist Dr. Kevin Sands says he sees an increase in patients seeking a healthier, more radiant smile with the dawn of a new year. Dr. Sands discusses the use of smile makeover procedures such as porcelain veneers and Invisalign® to boost confidence and revitalize dental appearance.
The latest report from the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry (AACD) shows that Americans place significant value on a person’s smile, with 99.7% of the population believing it to be an important social asset. The study also reveals that nearly three-quarters (74%) of Americans feel an unattractive smile could hurt their career success. At his Beverly Hills cosmetic dentistry practice, Dr. Kevin Sands says many patients are often more aware of their appearance during the holidays and new year because of the number of social gatherings and the chance to start fresh for the beginning of a new year. He adds that cosmetic procedures at his practice increase in demand on the cusp of the new year as patients seek to enhance their features and improve their smile through teeth whitening or other aesthetic enhancements.
Dr. Sands says popular procedures during this time of year include Invisalign®, porcelain veneers, and teeth whitening, which is expected to be the most popular office procedure in 2011 by a majority of AACD member statistics, according to the latest poll. Through cosmetic dental procedures, Dr. Sands says patients can take action to improve their appearance and correct imperfections that may be draining one’s self-confidence and impairing his or her outlook on life. “Whether patients undergo a teeth whitening procedure, or decide on porcelain veneers, the improved smile can greatly improve their confidence.”
Because it combines proven aesthetic procedures, Dr. Sands says a smile makeover can give patients a comprehensive and complete redesign of their smile, particularly for those who suffer from misalignment, discoloring, chips, cracks, or gaps in their teeth. He adds that in the wake of the coming new year, patients at his practice are taking advantage of the benefits of a smile makeover to offer them a chance to start the year with a new outlook on life.
Regardless of when patients choose to undergo a procedure, Dr. Sands says selecting a practice with a personalized dedication to each patient is crucial for receiving the best results. He also stresses the importance of choosing a qualified and experienced dentist in order to achieve the highest quality cosmetic enhancement.
