Dating and Teeth Maintenance. 4 tips to success

Article by Dr Raha Sepehrara

At any time in your life, you can find yourself preparing for a new date.  You might be young,  middle-aged, or in the autumn of your life.  No matter the reason or your time in life, the effect is the same. A new date requires a new image, and that can create an alarming dilemma, especially if you are scared of the dentist. You might find yourself overwhelmed if you have lost your confidence and self-esteem. We worry about everything from what to wear on that first date, to whether they will find us interesting.  There is one thing that can make all the difference, and that’s your smile.  Smile and the whole world smiles with you might seem a cliché but it is true, and The Dental Suite will help make your new date the success you want it to be.

A survey of over five thousand single people revealed that the most important feature people notice in the opposite sex are their teeth.  The flash car, the new outfit, the blue eyes, the blonde curls, the fascinating conversation, all paled into insignificance if person who is the focus of their attention had not taken care of their teeth.  An attractive, healthy smile emanates well-being and happiness. If a person takes care of their teeth it is a good sign they will take care of you. And this is an excellent place to begin.

1 # Take a Look at your Teeth

Look in the mirror, or at a recent photograph of yourself. Do you see an attractive smile or would you prefer to keep your mouth closed, so no one sees your teeth?  No matter whether your teeth have become discoloured,  they are slightly crooked, time has taken its toll, and you are missing teeth, or you suspect you have a cavity, you too can have a beautiful smile and restore your health and confidence in no time at all. After all, your smile is your greatest asset. Whatever the issue, your dentist can fix it.

2 # Dental Phobia Answers

If you have reached this point in the blog and are thinking, that’s all very well, but my teeth are not their best because I am too scared to have treatment, we have the solution.  We have helped hundreds of people who are dental phobic gain trust in their dentist and confidence in their best accessory; their smile. Statistics might tell us the majority of people see a beautiful smile as our most valuable feature but they also tell us a quarter of those people are frightened of the dentist. If you have had a bad experience or have an inherent fear of needles and treatment, we will help. Skilled in sedation dentistry, we can not only repair the damage to your teeth and give you the smile you want, but we can do all this painlessly.  Our peaceful clinic exudes calm and kindness. Whether you need major treatment or a minor adjustment we can give you anything from our relaxation techniques to IV sedation and our magic ‘Wand’, a computerised, needle-free alternative to an injection, to dispel all your fears.

3# Put the First Dental Date in your Diary

Before you go on your new date, make an appointment with the Dental Suite. Right now, we offer a FREE initial dental examination to get you started.  Now you know this can be a painless experience, you can rest assured all things are possible.  If your teeth are crooked, we can discreetly straighten them. If you have an unsightly gap from a missing tooth, we can replace it with a natural looking implant.  Perhaps you are nervous your dentures will let you down, and you need them replaced, or you want to start with a simple check-up and a professional clean with our hygienist. Whatever you decide will make a fantastic difference not only to the way you look but the way you feel.

4# Positive Thinking

The idea of a first new date may be a little disheartening, but a lovely smile will help you regain confidence and get back on your feet.  Perhaps you are worried the conversation will run dry, or you will have nothing in common. Don’t worry about it. Put on your best smile, release the feel good factor and be ready to try again. You might be the centre of attention, or prefer to keep it low-key while you practice your social skills, but there is no need to let any setback get you down. If the first date wasn’t a success and he didn’t call you, or  she ignored your text,  shrug it off and be ready to try again. A new smile has in every instance helped people regain their lost confidence or find it for the first time.  It is all about feeling the best you possibly can.  The surprising truth is people who smile confidently are like a magnet; they are never alone for four good reasons. They are friendly and inviting; they look as if they are having a good time, and they radiate self-esteem. And this can soon be you.
