Here we are, 2013, it’s incredible how quickly the years pass.  And if you’re like so many others, it’s probable you’re making a New Year’s resolution to kick it all off.  While we’re all familiar with the standard health kick or financial belt-tightening variety, Sugar Fix would like to propose a new resolution.  Make this the year you give yourself the smile you’ve always dreamed of.  It’s not something most folks would immediately think of like a New Year’s resolution, but when you consider the benefits you might agree.

Let’s put it into perspective.  A smile is something you wear EVERY day.  Imagine wearing an unflattering outfit, or carrying a worn-out and broken handbag day after day.  You simply wouldn’t have it.  Why would you treat your smile any different?

Now consider the social and professional benefits of beefing up your beam.  Just like clothing and accessories have the power to impact your confidence, a beautiful and healthy smile will send your confidence soaring.  In fact, ADA research suggests that individuals with straight, white, and proportionate smiles are considered more attractive to the opposite sex, 74% of adults agree an unattractive smile can hurt a person’s chances for career success and virtually all Americans (99.7%) believe a smile is an important social asset.

Above all else is your health.  The connection between your oral health and overall health is profound and shouldn’t be ignored.  Consider your mouth a window to the body.  Tooth decay and periodontal disease often contribute to further health conditions such as heart disease, diabetes, and premature/low birth weight in pregnant women.  Severely decayed teeth can cause infection and eventually lead to tooth loss.  In many cases, a gorgeous smile is icing on the cake, while the main cause for treatment is restoring oral and total body health.

Whatever your reason necessary or elective, investing in your health, confidence, and well-being is a terrific way to kick-off 2013.  Chicago cosmetic dentist, Dr. Brittany Dickinson, and the team at Sugar Fix Dental Loft are experts in their field who have made creating beautiful smiles their mission.  Whether you’re interested in porcelain veneers, Invisalign, dental implants or simply whitening your teeth, Sugar Fix where it’s at.  Contact us today to schedule a consultation with Dr. Dickinson for cosmetic and restorative dentistry at Sugar Fix Dental Loft.  By this time next year, you’ll be smiling for some very good reasons.

Happy 2013!
