Cosmetic Dentistry True-or-False

True False ChalkThere’s much more to you than your teeth, yet your smile is one of the first things most people will notice about you. If your grin is not reasonably attractive, it will be like a neon sign that isn’t pleasant to gaze at, but certainly catches the eye. Luckily, cosmetic dental procedures help deal with dental issues which making you feel self-conscious about the way your teeth appear. Our team at  New Smile Dental Group would like to challenge you to the following true-or-false quiz on cosmetic dentistry.


Q1. True or false – A nice looking smile means a higher paycheck.

Q2. True or false – All cosmetic dentistry procedures require multiple appointments because they are so invasive.

Q3. True or false – A smile makeover is defined as a full array of procedures custom designed in a plan that meets your needs and desires for the perfect grin.


A1. TRUE- The power of a healthy, attractive smile has been the focus of many research studies over the years. The American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry discovered that good-looking smiles will make a person seem more friendly, intelligent, and successful than someone who doesn’t smile or seems uncomfortable when they smile. A study by Kelton Research examined job candidates who were more likely to be hired and paid higher salaries after they’d whitened their teeth.

A2. FALSE – Most cosmetic dental procedures are not nearly as invasive as other full-blown surgeries. Professional teeth whitening, bonding, and even gum lifts, for example, can be finished in just one or two dental visits. Porcelain veneers generally require two visits.

A3. FALSE – For a smile makeover, each case is individual. When you consult with a dentist for a smile makeover, you have the opportunity to choose from a variety of cosmetic procedures to suit your personal needs. Whether you want dental bonding, porcelain veneers, white crowns, and/or teeth whitening, there are many combinations and options to please your tastes.
