3 Simple Steps To A Better Life.
Jean wasn't feeling very good. She felt run-down, tired easily, and constantly felt "drained." Besides that, Jean didn't like the way her teeth looked. They embarrassed her. Her teeth were getting darker and seemed to be more crooked than before. Never in a million years would she have thought these two things were related.
When Jean came to our office for a cosmetic consultation, she never thought her teeth could be causing her fatigue. What could your mouth possibly have to do with your energy level? What we were able to show Jean was just how important her dental health was to her overall general health.
She learned how the bacteria that cause gum disease aren't painful, but they get in your blood stream. Once there, your body is in a constant battle fighting them off. This wears down your immune system and can make you tired. Jean also learned that these same bacteria could affect her heart, her artificial hip, or lead to a stroke. She had never heard any of this information before. None of these possible consequences were good.
Plus, when she looked in the mirror, her teeth made her feel old. They never used to be this dark. This made Jean feel depressed. Who wants to look old?
We helped Jean with a plan to get her dentally back to health, and cosmetically give her the smile she always wanted. It took several months and a commitment on Jean's part to get healthy again, but now she has her energy back, and is really proud of her smile.
Jean took the 3 Simple Steps that got her where she wanted.
1. She Decided she had to do something, and do it now! She had waited long enough, and things were only getting worse. It was time.
2. She found the Right Dentist for her. There are many different philosophies, personalities, and training of dentists. It's important to be comfortable and confident with the dentist you choose.
3. She Did It! It's one thing to get the information, but another thing to follow through and actually do it. It took a commitment on Jean's part to make and keep her appointments, and to do her daily homework. But the rewards surpassed her expectations!
“Should have gotten my new smile years ago…
Perhaps with age comes wisdom.”
We had a patient, Mr. D., a really nice gentleman who took three years to decide to replace an ill-fitting upper removable partial denture with new porcelain bridgework. The old partial fit like “socks on a rooster.” But he was used to it and was getting by okay. He finally decided to have the fixed bridgework completed. Everything went well, and he seemed happy. But something was bothering him when he came in three months later for a cleaning and check-up.
“Why didn’t we do this three years ago?” he asked about his new bridgework. “I didn’t know it was going to make that big a difference!” He knew he was the one dragging his feet, delaying his treatment. We laughed together, but he‘d lost three years of enjoyment by not making a decision sooner. Three years of unnecessary embarrassment and discomfort. Three years of difficult chewing. Three years of a bad smile. We can’t turn back the hands of time. You can’t buy time…at any price!
“I am looking back over the last 30 plus years and wondering why it took me so long to make the decision to go forward with doing something about my smile.
I had worn braces for two years and my teeth were straight; however, it was not quite that "picture smile" I dreamed of. I would have to say that going forward with my new “picture perfect” smile has changed my life.” Stephanie
It may even take some practice, but once you understand the power of having a Really Great Smile, doors open almost magically. When properly utilized, it will give you a bigger return on your investment than real estate, stocks, or mutual funds combined.
Sometimes there are good reasons to delay a decision. Researching the subject at hand is a wise thing to do. But there should be no delay in getting the information you need to make the best choice possible. There must be urgency in completing your plan. Delays may be cleverly disguised excuses. Procrastination is Expensive. Excuses can be costly in comfort, time and money, but most costly in missed opportunities.
I’m Giving You Permission to Improve Your Smile. It’s Okay.

What Are People Really Thinking About Your Smile?
“The Appearance and Impact of Your Smile
Will Either Help You Significantly
Or Hurt You Terribly…”
It only takes a moment. Literally, a moment! In the blink of an eye, we make judgments about people we meet for the first time. And others make judgments about us. “Don't judge a book by its cover" is taught, but if we’re honest with ourselves, we don’t practice it. We judge. Gut feelings and intuition rule our decisions. Every one of us is guilty. How important is your smile in this "quick to judge" world?
You already know the answer. Ask yourself your own reaction when you look at someone with a great smile, an average smile, or a bad smile. Your "gut" makes a response. You get a "feeling." You can either warm up to or avoid someone based on your initial impression. We'll spend some time showing that you are not alone in this judgmental world. It's reassuring to know you're not alone, nevertheless upsetting to know you are being judged, even today, based on your smile.
Sharon was an excellent employee. Loyal, dependable, knowledgeable, well-liked, willing to go the extra mile, but never given the recognition or the opportunities for advancement that others with fewer skills enjoyed. Sharon made a decision that changed her life. She changed her smile. You can read about it at the end of this chapter. See if you can relate to Sharon.
A really great smile is the key
to many locked doors.
Our family and friends ask us for a smile every time we pose for a photograph. We tell those we care about to smile whenever we see them looking sad. We get the warmest feeling the first time a little baby is able to make a smile for itself. Smiles are magical, motivating and persuasive. A really great smile is the key to many locked doors.
How beautiful is your smile? Is it Bad, Good, or Great! Do you make an extra effort to make sure that your lips stay together to hide your teeth? Do you flash it as quick as you can because you're embarrassed? Is the person who smiles back at you in the mirror someone you find attractive? Are they someone with confidence? Is there something that you would like to change, but don’t know how?
If you answered “yes” to
that last question, you are not alone. Many people wish they
had a more attractive smile. The way you see yourself has a strong
affect on how you interact with everyone you come in contact
with every day. A great smile will raise your confidence and
generate positive reactions from those you meet. An average smile
gets average reactions from people, and a bad smile turns people
off. These aren’t my ideas. These are proven universals.
“Universals” are elements of interpersonal style or behavior that are found to be broadly appealing to others. They are things that almost everyone finds attractive, regardless of their age, physical appearance, socioeconomic status, race, or sexual orientation. Of all the universals in a culture, a beautiful smile is at the top of the list.
According to Ann Demarais, Ph.D., and Valerie White, Ph.D., in their book First Impressions, people who come across as warm are typically viewed as less threatening than their aloof or cold counterparts. What does it mean to be “warm"? The body language that indicates warmth is “showing physical attention, smiling, and nodding.” The body language that indicates coldness is “not attending to others and not smiling.” Interestingly, the people being evaluated didn’t see how much of an effect their own behaviors influenced those around them. They had no idea that people thought they were cold just because they didn’t smile. So, you may want to pay attention to your own temperature signals.
Every time you smile at someone, it is an action of love, a gift to that person, a beautiful thing. - Mother Teresa
One of our patients received a major promotion in her career within a month of receiving a Smile Enhancement. Another became engaged to be married, and another, for the first time in his life, actually looked forward to his daughter’s wedding and smiling openly after a lifetime of hiding his smile. These are just a few of the thousands of lives that have been changed by a “Smile Upgrade” to a Really Great Smile.
You may be one of the fortunate few who are completely satisfied with your smile. You also probably have a friend or family member who could use a smile makeover. An unattractive smile is no longer a matter of fate. It’s a matter of choice. Give them this book and help them understand just how important a great smile is in today's world. It truly is a different world today than it was 15 years ago.
If you ask people the first thing they notice in another person, their smile will be in the top three of their list. A psychological study reported in Perceptive Motor Skills found that judged a person’s physical attractiveness by “the
mouth, eyes, structure of the face, hair, and nose” in that order. We all judge others. We might not want to admit it, but we do. Don’t be upset with yourself or try to deny it. It’s normal. It doesn’t mean you’re bad. It does mean that we will make initial judgments about someone from our first visual contact. We Just Do!
According to Dr. David Metzner, “We only get one chance at a first impression, and the person who projects the best self-image makes the best impression. In today’s competitive society, people recognize the importance of self-improvement, whether it is for social or professional reasons.” (David M. Metzner, MD is an Aesthetic Plastic Surgeon. His specialty areas are minimizing the effects of aging, redefining facial features and contouring the body.)
The reverse is that a great-looking person with a poor smile will be judged lower on our subconscious rating scale. We’ve all heard someone comment, “They looked so good… until they smiled” or "I couldn't stop looking at his (her) ugly teeth! What a shame. Why doesn't he (she) do something about it?"
Studies have shown that good-looking people are given the benefit of the doubt over unattractive people. They’re thought to be more intelligent, more productive, more successful, more trusting, more outgoing, more likeable, higher achievers, honest, and braver than the unattractive. Even school teachers spend more time with attractive students. It may not be right, but that’s the way it is. It Just Is!
If you ever want to influence another person’s thoughts or actions, either now or in the future, you need to have everything going for you that you can.
You want your family to treat you well, your kids to pick up their rooms, your spouse to want you, your in-laws to respect you, your co-workers to look up to you, your boss to appreciate you, your clients to trust you, and people you’ve not yet met to have a positive impression when you meet face to face. Arthur Schopenhauer, the German philosopher, observed, “It is only at the first encounter that a face makes its full impression on us.” Your smile speaks volumes.
A bad smile will have the reverse effect. At some point in the history of dental advertising, a copywriter thought it would be a good idea to show “before” and “after” photographs as a part of an ad. You could see the benefits of cosmetic dental procedures. The ad agencies soon learned why this was a bad idea. A photo of real bad teeth made readers turn their eyes away. They stopped reading there and didn’t finish the rest of the ad. There’s a lesson here. When faced with a bad smile, people will turn away, not giving you the opportunity to communicate your message.
Most people don’t have a really bad smile. Your smile is probably “okay.” There might be some discoloration, or gaps, or maybe your teeth are crooked, or darker than you’d like. Maybe some old fillings have stained and turned dark. But it’s okay. Or is it? What opportunities have you missed because of first impressions? What relationships never started, what career advancements were delayed? There IS something you can do about it.
Having your teeth professionally cleaned on a regular basis will help them look better, but the natural wear and thinning of the enamel will make your teeth get darker with time. A whiter tooth looks younger. A darker tooth looks older. It just does! We can’t predict an accident or a fall, so a broken tooth (or teeth) many times is out of our control. Materials used to fill teeth have stained and discolored. Old fillings turn dark and look like cavities. That’s just the way it is.
Most people aren’t completely happy with their smile. Maybe no one said anything, but you know what you don’t like. You even have a mental image of what your great smile would look like. You see straight, white teeth. You feel people admiring your smile. You know you look younger. You know people are having good thoughts about you because you radiate confidence. You know the feeling, until you look in the mirror. Then reality hits, and you settle for “just okay.”
Your appearance will determine a large part of your self-image and confidence. Your Smile is a Major Factor!
The first area we addressed was how other people react to your smile. But the second aspect is how you react to your own smile. Haven’t you known people who gained more self-confidence after they lost weight or got in shape? People change after a smile makeover too. Shy people become outgoing. Confidence levels soar. They get promotions at work, find the love of their life, and become true leaders. The potential was always there, but the new image of themselves released their potential. Read the testimonies in this book about life changes. They’re real. Your appearance will determine a large part of your self-image and confidence. Your Smile is a Major Factor!
There are many books written on this subject. Appearance has a lot to do with confidence and self-image. The smile is an incredible factor. It is a very personal part of the body. The mouth has the ability to be forceful or intimate. It can bite, or it can kiss. It is an expression of you. We can tell a fake smile from a genuine smile. The message of a genuine smile is honesty and truth. A fake smile is a warning sign, a red flag. Be careful. Don’t trust. Facial expressions, from the eyes to the smile, are like a window to true feelings, the inner self.
The eyes may be the windows to the soul,
but the Smile can be the Key to Confidence.
When someone knows they have a beautiful smile, they’re going to show it more often. They’re not afraid. They’re proud. Good for Them! They Look Marvelous!
Much of your physical health is determined by your mental state.
Your self-esteem is determined by how you look and feel about yourself. It’s the feelings associated with your own self-analysis. It may or may not be accurate, but it’s powerful. Your subconscious never goes to sleep or takes a vacation. It keeps track of your “self-talk,” and replays it over and over. You become what You continually talk to yourself about.
Your self-esteem has lot to do with your physical health. Procedures that help you feel better about yourself are beneficial. If you’re not satisfied with your current smile, a Smile Makeover can change your self-talk from negative to positive. If your New Smile helps you have positive self-talk and higher self-esteem, it will have a positive effect on your physical health. How you “feel” about yourself affects your physical health.
Doctors agree that much of our physical health is determined by our mental state and our mental state is determined by our self-talk. Much of our self-talk is determined by our self-image, which is affected by our appearance. A large part of our appearance is in our smile. A Great Smile can lead to Better Physical Health.
According to Dr. Ramin Tabib, “Once a smile makeover is completed, it can be a catalyst for other life improvements. It affects the confidence you project, how you speak, and can be instrumental in your career advancement. It really has a ripple effect.”
When we change One thing,
we don’t just change One Thing.
We change everything!
This “ripple effect” is worth investigating. It happens in all areas of our lives. Everything is connected. When you change just one variable, everything else is affected. It could be our clothes, our weight, our education, our partner, or just one bad habit. The ripple effect is in our self-image, our health, our career, our happiness, and even our longevity. When we change One thing, we don’t
just change One Thing. We change everything! The direction of
our lives is new. It can be a good change or a bad change. That
all depends on our choices. Good, sound, intelligent, wise choices
will lead to changes in positive, healthy directions. Stupid,
bad, short-sighted choices will lead down a negative, dangerous
path. The Ripple Effect is Real! For some, the decision to advance to a great smile is easy. For others, it’s an agonizing process. Once we realize how the benefits of a great smile will affect us, our families, friends, and even strangers, the decision is easy. It’s not selfish to want to be the best we can be. It’s a big step for our Inner Personal Growth.

Dear Dr. Reinertsen and Staff,
“There are truly no words to express my sincere gratitude to you all for giving me a new beginning. It has been said by some that when you hit the big 50 that life is on the downside, but you have given me such a lift that that no longer is true for me!
Let me begin by first expressing a heartfelt apology to you. You see, I doubted your word. When I first saw all the cosmetic information in your office, I was intrigued and thought “wow,” they are amazing before and after photos. They look beautiful…I wonder? When I asked about it, I thought, “Oh yeah, there is no pain because it isn’t his mouth, and my teeth won’t really look that good. You know the old saying, No pain, No gain. That is what I believed. He is lying, they are all lying…” I have always had extreme pain and dreaded going to the dentist before, so I thought you would be no different. Well, I am not embarrassed to admit I was wrong…Dead wrong!!!!!
I have an outrageous gain and NO pain!! Yes, my husband experienced minimal pain in his pocketbook but even he will admit it was well worth the dollars it cost. Not only do I now care for my teeth better than I ever did before, I smile all the time! I have a new found confidence that I didn’t
have before. I hold my head up high and open wide for there are
no longer any hands covering this wonderful smile. I feel younger
and I have to admit that many of my friends have told me I look
