(NC) - An improved smile is likely to boost self-image, making a person more confident in their daily life. A survey by the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry revealed that 92 percent of adult respondents think that an attractive smile is an important social asset - and 74 percent believe that an unattractive smile can hurt the chances for career success.

These findings simply underscore the fact that improving one's smile is not just for movie stars and high-profile individuals anymore, thanks to the quality advancements in lower cost procedures. And indeed, many improvements can be achieved without the need for unsightly, uncomfortable, and time-consuming metal braces, according to dentists at LVI, one of the world's foremost cosmetic dentistry training centres. Today, cosmetic dentistry is often a dream-come-true for people with:

  • Gaps between their teeth

  • Chipped, broken or worn teeth

  • Missing teeth or a missing tooth

  • Old metal fillings


  • Discolored or strained teeth

Cosmetic dentists can correct these problems and improve a person's overall appearance through a variety of techniques, including veneers, crowns, bridges and tooth whitening. And while at first glance these may seem to offer primarily esthetic value, cosmetic dentistry, says LVI, is known to provide many emotional and health benefits too.

The benefit to a person's complete oral health may also be a windfall when the smile is improved. After cosmetic dentistry, says LVI, people are much more inclined to pay full attention to maintaining their beautiful teeth.

Located in Nevada, LVI is lauded internationally as a premier, post-graduate centre for cosmetic dentistry. LVI has trained thousands of dentists from around the world, and many are practicing in Canada.
