3 Benefits of Having a Perfect Smile

Are you completely happy with your teeth? It’s rare for anyone to answer “yes” to that question. It’s also rare that people know exactly what can be done to change that. So many of us go through life presuming that the smile we have now is here to stay – that there is nothing that we can do to change it and so we should just accept its flaws, no matter how unhappy or insecure they make us feel. However, absolutely none of this is true! There are so many ways in which you are able to change and enhance the way your teeth look, and so many reasons for choosing each one. Here, courtesy of the specialists at Harley Street Smile Clinic, are a just a few of the benefits of having a perfect smile.


It’s great to be able to feel comfortable in our own skin, but no matter how much of an effort we make, feeling dissatisfied with the look of our teeth can bring the most well-turned-out of us crashing back down to earth. We don’t know how to smile properly in photos, and feel we come out looking awkward or self-conscious in every image as a result. It may seem easy to just brush this off and try to “get over it” but in reality, it’s always going to be somewhere in the back of our minds. No one should settle for less than the best. If you’re someone who needs to look good to feel good, a lovely smile is a perfect accessory.


It might not just about look – the physical nature of some peoples’ teeth can just drive them mad! Whether you find you bite your tongue every time you chew on one side of your mouth, or a gap between your teeth is affecting your speech, taking the opportunity to have this rectified can be life-changing. There is no need to put up with uncomfortable dental issues when there are ways by which they can be resolved.

Standing Out

When it comes to personal successes, every little helps. Whether you’re looking at ways to perfect your look for a job interview or future opportunity, you’re considering trying out the dating scene or you’ve got a big event coming up, enhancing your smile can prove the perfect finishing touch to get you noticed. You might be looking forward to one important day, but beautiful teeth can last you for many years to come.

So What Do I Need To Do?

If you’re hoping to make a change, the next step is to decide which procedure is best for you. If your teeth are stained or discoloured, you might choose a teeth whitening treatment – either laser or chemical – to give your smile a healthy glow. If the discolouration affects the whole of your tooth, your teeth are mismatched in size or shape or are chipped, asymmetrical, uneven or “gappy”, it may be a better idea to choose porcelain veneers, which can be minutely sculpted and adjusted to match the rest of your smile. Other approaches to correct uneven, overlapping or “leaning” teeth can be the use of braces or aligners, which gradually guide the teeth into a better position. You can also change the shape of your teeth through laser contouring, which can help adjust the line of your smile to be evener. Gumline contouring is available too.

Finally, when it comes to badly damaged teeth, it’s worth considering a crown or bridge to correct the look of them, while missing teeth can be replaced with implants. Sometimes, multiple treatments can be undertaken for the best result. For example, if you decide to have your gums contoured, you may find that the area of the tooth that was previously hidden by gum tissue is slightly discoloured compared to the exposed section. For this, we would recommend a whitening treatment to act alongside gum contouring.
