If you’re unhappy with your smile, you’ve probably been considering a smile makeover for a while. But you might have been putting cosmetic dentistry off, thinking it wasn’t important or you could do it later.

But sometimes cosmetic dentistry is important, so important that you can’t put it off another month, week, or even day. Here are some signs that you need to prioritize cosmetic dentistry and get that smile makeover.

You Get Sad when You See Your Teeth

Smiling is supposed to make you happy. But if you don’t like the appearance of your teeth, it can do the opposite. If your teeth make you sad, it can depress your mood every day. After all, your smile is one of the first things you see in the morning and one of the last things you see at night. This means that you start and end your days being sad, which can make for a depressing life.

You Get Anxious about Social Situations

We naturally enjoy being around others, talking and laughing. But if you are unhappy with the appearance of your teeth, social situations may inspire a different feeling: worry that you’re going to have to smile. You should never be worried that you’re going to be happy–you should be free to enjoy your time with others.

People Don’t Smile Back

Our natural instinct is to smile back when someone smiles at us. If you’ve noticed that people are more likely to stop smiling or look away when you smile, it may be because of the appearance of your teeth. If you’re tired of getting that kind of response, it may be time to prioritize your cosmetic dentistry.

You Think Your Smile Affects Your Prospects

If you feel like your unattractive smile is affecting your chances at work, it probably is. Certainly, an attractive smile is an important professional asset, and your best outfit. But even more important is how it’s affecting your attitude at work. If you’re actively suppressing your smile at work, your boss may think you’re unhappy in your work, your clients may not think you’re trustworthy, or people you supervise might think you’re angry with them. And if you don’t have confidence in your smile, you may not be stepping up or speaking up in important situations, which means missed opportunities.
