The next time you go abroad, check out the local’s teeth. I visited the Taiwan about 10 years ago and was witness to plenty of dull, not so bright, yellowish looking grins. Some were just atrocious. It was hard for me to believe that people from other countries just didn’t make a big deal out of their teeth. I mean, you only get one set after all. Why not go ahead and resort to cosmetic dentistry if there was a need to?

Well, after do a little chatting with my buddy who came from Taiwan, he filled me in on a little secret. They don’t really care. Yeah, you heard me right. Many other countries don’t put the emphasis on cosmetic dentistry, braces, and whitening processes like we do. Here in America, we’re apparently obsessed with having a stellar grin.

I know that I am. That’s why I brush three times a day and floss at night. Not only do I want to avoid getting cavities, but I want to make certain my teeth are clean and white. Don’t you?

Let’s face it; there’s nothing wrong with having a little cosmetic dentistry done. I’m sure I would do it if I had to one day. Since we have the technology, we might as well take full advantage of it.

The only thing I know is that when I meet someone; their smile usually makes an impact on me. Probably more than any other physical trait that they have, so to all dentists, orthodontists, oral surgeons, and teeth specialists out there, keep up the great work.  We always want our pearly whites to keep on looking perfect as long as we are around.
