What is easy to share and doesn’t cost anything? A smile! A smile is the universal way to communicate with other people. It’s the way you can signify to someone else that you are happy and that all is well. Also, if you have nice teeth that you’re proud to show off, an open smile is the perfect way to show them off.
Sometimes however people can be self-conscious of their teeth and that keeps them from smiling as brightly as they should. “Dentistry student Danté Brown has dental fluorosis, a condition of tooth enamel that causes discoloration or little holes in the teeth.’I was self-conscious about it,’ he said. ‘It wasn’t a nice smile.’ Fortunately, his dentist was able to cure the problem.’It helped me feel better about myself,’ Brown said. ‘It really changed my life.’Making others feel the same way is what he likes about dentistry. ‘In America, people are really gung-ho about their smile,’ he said. ‘I enjoy helping people feel better about themselves in that way.’ Brown is such a promising practitioner of his craft that he recently received UIC’s Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Scholarship.”
If you happen to feel self-conscious about your smile contact your Ottawa dentist and they will be able to help you not only look better, but feel better about yourself and your smile.
