Don’t Let Friends Talk You out of Cosmetic Dentistry You Want

Boutique Dentistry for Nashville, Tennessee

Cosmetic dentistry has the potential to do a lot of things: it can improve the first impressions you give in professional and personal contacts. It can make you more likely to get hired (and improve your lifetime earnings) or make you more likely to get a second date. But none of these things can be guaranteed so they’re not good reasons to get cosmetic dentistry.

Instead, the best reason to get cosmetic dentistry is because you want to improve the appearance of your smile. If the appearance of your smile makes you unhappy, then that’s the best reason to get it improved. Unfortunately, some well-meaning friends may try to talk you out of it. But don’t let them.

Here are some of the more common things that people will say if they find out you’re considering cosmetic dentistry.

“Your Smile Is Cute!”

Other people looking at your smile may describe it as “cute” or “unique.” They may tell you it has “personality” or “character.” They may even say that it’s what makes you “you.”

But it’s important to remember that there’s only one person who has to look at that smile in the mirror in the morning, and that’s you.

It’s easy for someone else to say that a turned tooth, chipped tooth, or retained baby tooth has “character.” If you don’t agree, it’s your right to change it.

And remember: with a talented cosmetic dentist like Dr. Kent E. White in Nashville, TN, you can maintain the character of your smile while still improving its appearance with a smile makeover. You can maintain your cuteness and still get beauty.

“Your Smile Will Look Fake.”

Many people who haven’t had cosmetic dentistry or researched it assume that cosmetic dentistry looks fake. That’s because they’ve probably noticed someone with cosmetic dentistry who stood out. But the truth is that you’ve probably met many people with cosmetic dentistry whose results look so natural that no one knows they have cosmetic dentistry. When it’s properly done, cosmetic dentistry looks totally natural.

Don’t believe us? Look at Dr. White’s before and after gallery to see examples of his work. You can achieve similar results that will look natural and attractive.

“It’s a Waste of Money.”

It’s easy for someone else to dismiss something as a waste of money if it doesn’t matter to them. For you, cosmetic dentistry is likely a great value.

Cosmetic dentistry is a great value because it has the ability to last a long time. Porcelain veneers can last ten years or more. Dental implants can last a lifetime.

And, unlike new shoes, a new outfit, or new jewelry, you can and will wear your smile everywhere. At every occasion, from small family get-togethers to big public galas, you will be wearing your smile.

And if investing in cosmetic dentistry makes you feel better about yourself and your smile, how could that possibly be a waste?

Do It for Yourself

If friends and family are recommending against cosmetic dentistry, listen to their concerns. When making your decision, take into account everything they are saying. Then look in the mirror, and decide for yourself.
