When it comes to cosmetic dentistry, San Antonio has quite a competitive market and patients have many options. Consequently, it is very important for us to make a good first impression. When meeting people in the course of your day, how do you make a good first impression? For example, when you meet someone for the first time what is one of the first features you notice? If you said their smile, then you are in the majority— 8 out of 10 people agree in a recent study.
Your smile is a core component of both verbal and non-verbal communication. Having a healthy smile is not only important for communicating but it also has a huge impact on self-esteem. It is a well-known fact that the better someone feels about themselves the more it shows in their disposition. On the other hand, when you feel negatively about yourself, that also shows. Your disposition is going to affect the way you come off to people and impact the impression you make.
In fact, in many professions such as sales, exuding confidence is a key factor to success. Having a healthy smile is the first step in obtaining and maintaining that confident self-image. However, if your smile is not quite where you’d like it to be— there are options.
