Crossing the Gender Lines of Dental Health

Smiling White Teeth CoupleYou may have heard various gender statistics in your life (and possibly wondered if they were actual facts, or more like stereotypes). Women live longer than men. Men are stronger than women. Women tolerate pain better than men. Men have higher metabolisms than women. Women are more emotional. Men make more money. There are certainly people you can point to that live up to these ideas, and others who can prove just the opposite. When it comes to dental health, however, women tend to pay more attention to their teeth than their male counterparts. Celina dentist, Dr. Angela Ganjoor and her dental team provide the same care to all patients regardless of gender.

Importance of Smiling Freely

According to the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry (AACD) the smile on a woman’s face will make them look more attractive and achieve easier success. Regardless of the multi-million dollar cosmetics industry, 70% of men feel that a woman appears more gorgeous as a result of a nice smile than a nice makeup job. Smiling releases endorphins. If you believe in “vibes” a smile is likely to give off positive feelings to those around you. Smiles also lift up facial muscles which naturally provides a younger, kinder, and healthier appearance.

Common Cosmetic Dental Solutions

If you are unhappy with your smile and feel like your physical genetics are stopping you from living the fulfilled life of your dreams, there are cosmetic opportunities for you. The American Academy of Periodontology points out that Americans are seven times more likely to have cosmetic dental procedures than face lifts. Part of the reason for this may be that cosmetic dental pursuits are often far less invasive than facial cosmetic surgery. Teeth whitening removes years of stains in one simple appointment. Porcelain veneers cover over a multitude of flaws and are completed with minimally invasive preparation in about two appointments.
