Scientific Reasons to Smile More and Visit a Laser Dentist in Albuquerque

Posted on: March 15, 2017

Laser DentistImproving your smile is easy when you have the help of a laser dentist in Albuquerque. At our dental office, we have a variety of ways to improve a smile with modern dental techniques. Since we use lasers, we can perform many of the same procedures in a minimally-invasive way. Dental lasers can provide the necessary dental work one needs without causing excessive discomfort. If we need to treat a patient’s gums due to gum disease, we can use lasers to essentially zap the bacteria that is causing the irritation and disease. Using traditional metal dental tools can cause swelling, bleeding and irritation during that same procedure. With lasers, there is no swelling, bleeding or irritation so it is a much better process.

We Can Fix Your Smile

Some of the aesthetic issues we can correct are –

  • Closing gaps in between your teeth
  • Whitening your teeth
  • Replacing any teeth that have been lost
  • Restoring any teeth that are cracked or chipped
  • Fixing a gummy smile
  • Treating gum disease and gum recession
  • Removing tooth decay
  • And more

All of these procedures can achieve the ultimate objective of giving the patient a beautiful smile. The reasons to do so extends beyond your appearance and self-esteem to how you actually feel on a daily basis. There are proven scientific benefits to improving your smile and using it more.

Scientific Reasons to Visit a Laser Dentist

When you smile, your body releases neuropeptides – small molecules that allow your neurons to communicate with each other. You may have heard of dopamine, serotonin or endorphins; which are all neuropeptides. These neuropeptides can make you feel happier by improving your mood, reducing stress, lowering your heart rate and even reducing pain. Smiling can quite literally make you feel better.

Additionally, when other people see you smile, two positive things happen – their orbitofrontal cortex is activated so that they feel rewarded. They will also smile (it’s contagious) and this will release neuropeptides in their brain. As a result, they will feel happier and associate that sense of happiness with you. The chain reaction can improve social/professional interactions, cause people to view an individual as more attractive and even help one perform better at work. All of these are plenty of reasons to visit our laser dentist office to improve yours.
