Wouldn’t you love a great smile

Everyone would love a great smile. Even though you may not have dental coverage there are things you can do to take care of your teeth.
There she is, across the crowded room.  She is a vision, the girl of your dreams.  She gives you the eye as you walk closer.  Her eyes are a beautiful sky blue and her hair is perfection.  You reach out your hand to introduce yourself.  She could be the one.  You picture your future children but more importantly you picture how jealous your friends will be when they see her with you. Then she smiles and suddenly your perfect girl is not so perfect.
We see them everywhere, on television, in movie theatres, and on the cover of magazines. That’s right, I’m talking about a shiny white smile. All the actors have perfect smiles. However not everyone is born with wonderful smiles and strong healthy teeth.
Even without dental coverage there are things everyone can do regularly. While searching for that perfect smile. Obviously the most important thing is to brush 2 or 3 times a day, preferably after every meal. Flossing every day is also a good, inexpensive way to keep your teeth and gums healthy.
If you have healthy white teeth you just feel better about yourself. It gives you a level of self-confidence that you will have for if you take care of them.  There is nothing better in your everyday life than having self-esteem.
Having this high level of confidence will help you in your career and your personal relationships. Think about the first time you see someone of the opposite sex whom you are attracted to. One of the first things you notice is their smile; well, hopefully they are smiling at you.
Walking around town every day we notice people with nice teeth. They don’t put their hand up to their face when they laugh. They aren’t going out of their way to cover their teeth with their mouths. They are generally more outgoing than people with poor teeth.
So just remember, rich or poor, working or not, there is no better gift you can give yourself than healthy teeth for your whole life.  Even if you must put away a dollar a week until you can afford to see a dentist, you should do it.
Then when you see the woman of your dreams you will be able charm her with your perfect smile.  And until that day comes, keep on brushing and flossing.
