Never underestimate the power of a smile, especially your Mother’s smile.
My mom, Peggy passed away seven years ago and I think of her often, especially at Mother’s Day.
I was fortunate to look after my mom’s smile through the years, and if you ever saw her you knew that her smile was a beautiful reflection of who she was. She worked in our office for many years and she brought joy and smiles to all our patients.
It is so important to love your smile and be proud of it because our smiles are unique to each of us and who we are.
As we mature our teeth become important in many ways besides being aesthetically pleasing. Important factors such as nutrition/digestion, speech, function and social situations all take a role in our daily lives.
As I sit with patients and discuss their smile, I often ask them, “What would you wish for in your smile?” or “What do you wonder about your smile?” It’s amazing to hear how people feel about their smiles and how it not only affects their lives but their relationships as well.
There are many options when it comes to maintaining or changing your smile, such as implants, veneers, crowns, Invisalign©, dentures and teeth whitening. It is always important to maintain good oral health care which should include regular visits to your hygienist to maintain your Smile for Life.
I hope you enjoy your smile and share it with all those around you.
Happy Mother’s Day!
