Cosmetic dentistry continues to be one of the fastest-growing dental fields as more studies reveal a beautiful smile is tied to a person’s self-confidence and also influences the opinions and first impressions of others. At our Palm Beach Gardens cosmetic dentist and general dentistry office, we see countless men and women who know they desire a better, brighter smile but aren’t quite sure how to get there. Dr. Civin and the entire dental team can work with patients to establish a cosmetic dentistry plan that offers results, yet is affordable.
The American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry (AACD) recently published its 2013 report on the State of Cosmetic Dentistry. After polling hundreds of dentists, the study found that both genders and people of all ages are turning to cosmetic dentistry services. Here are some statistics our Palm Beach Gardens dental team found particularly interesting:
- An estimated 60 percent of cosmetic dentistry patients are female.
- The most popular age group for cosmetic dentistry services is people age 41 to 50. The next-closest age groups are 51 to 60 and 31 to 40.
- Professional teeth whitening and bleaching is one of the most popular cosmetic dentistry services in America. Bonding and veneers were a close second and third, respectively.
- Americans spend nearly $2 million on teeth whitening each year.
Improving Smiles and Boosting Confidence
Dr. Civin finds many of his cosmetic dentistry patients experience results that go beyond seeing brighter, straighter or more even teeth in the mirror after a cosmetic dentistry procedure. A study from a medical research company from Kelton found that 73 percent of Americans would be more likely to trust someone with a nice smile than someone with a good job, clothing, or automobile. Plus, an estimated 57 percent of Americans said they would rather have a nice smile than clear skin. Not to mention, some studies found that many Americans think that someone with a whiter, straighter smile exhibits more exuberance, leading to the idea that cosmetic dental treatments make you look younger.
If you value a nice smile too, yet aren’t sure how to start on the pathway to getting it, Dr. Civin and his Palm Beach Garden cosmetic dentist staff can help. Call today to schedule your cosmetic dentistry consultation.
