Dr. Reid Discusses the Health and Social Benefits of Cosmetic Dentistry


Truckee, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 12/31/2014 -- Behavioral studies in the American Journal of Social Psychology have proven that individuals who have bright, white smiles and who are physically attractive have an advantage in both social and professional situations.

Dr. Donald Reid of Tahoe Dental Artistry performs cosmetic dentistry that can change a person's life and boost their self-confidence by giving them the smile they have always desired. Cosmetic dentistry is the branch of dentistry that offers procedures such as whitening, teeth straightening, porcelain crowns and veneers, and reshaping teeth.

"A straight, white and well-aligned smile not only brightens your day, it also positively affects the way others perceive and interact with you," says Dr. Reid, "Besides, having straighter and whiter teeth motivates you to get rid of some bad habits such as consuming food that stain the teeth, smoking and drinking sugary beverages. This not only helps the teeth stay bright and white, it also improves your overall health."

In addition to esthetics, cosmetic dentistry also involves maintaining healthy teeth and gums. Before any cosmetic procedure can take place, problems like a bad bite or crooked teeth must be taken care of. These problems often cause severe, ongoing headaches. The teeth that are misaligned cause the bite force to be out of balance, radiating pain into the muscles and nerves of the head. Most people tend to be unaware that they have a bad bite and not just a regular headache.

To help patients easily understand the destructive effects caused by bad bite, Dr. Reid has even created BiteFX software animations.
