Whether your kid is graduating from college or high school, a cosmetic dentistry smile makeover is a great graduation gift. A smile makeover isn’t just a cosmetic procedure–it often comes with significant health benefits. It can help your child to gain confidence as they go forward in life. It can even help your child’s job prospects.

Beyond Cosmetics

A smile makeover is, first and foremost, a cosmetic procedure. It’s designed to ensure a person has a beautiful smile. But it goes beyond that.

First, many of the causes of an unattractive smile may be unhealthy. In high school, some teens may neglect oral health care, and this just gets worse when they go off to college. Four to 8 years of poor oral hygiene can lead to significant damage to the teeth, making them unhealthy as well as unattractive. A smile makeover can remove tooth decay–as well as unattractive restorations–to help your child get a healthy start in college or in their independent life.

A Great Confidence Boost

If your child has for years been dealing with teasing or bullying due to smile imperfections that you couldn’t afford to fix or otherwise didn’t want to fix before, they might be very grateful for the opportunity to finally get them fixed. Closing a smile gap with porcelain veneers or building up a peg lateral can help your child make a fresh start in their new life.

With additional confidence, kids can be better equipped for making friends in college or competing in a tough job market.

Better Job Prospects

Your child’s appearance definitely affects their ability to get a job in this tough job market. People with attractive smiles are more likely to be hired and more likely to be offered a higher salary than people with a similar skill set but less attractive smiles. An attractive smile is essential to a great first impression. A person with an attractive smile will likely earn about $84,000 more. And it can really make a big difference. After all, Sonia Sotomayor says cosmetic dentistry really helped her succeed.
