To see someone's perfectly aligned teeth shining bright and white as they smile is a great sight. I have become very aware of this during recent months. I guess I always did notice when someone had really great teeth, but I don't think that I thought about teeth very much unless I came across a particularly brilliant smile.
But having started spending some of my time in California, I couldn't help but become aware of how almost everyone living in this sunny State possesses an especially brilliant smile. Almost everyone has straight teeth. Almost everyone has white teeth. I have to admit that this is simply not the case on the Isle of Man or the North of England in general.
California is an unusual State which attracts a lot of "beautiful people". I read a brief interview with Hugh Hefner (of Playboy fame) the other day, and he commented on this phenomenon, which he clearly enjoys benefitting from! And so it comes as no surprise that people who live there are more likely to take the time and trouble to ensure that they have beautiful teeth.
I am presently having a little cosmetic work performed upon my teeth, involving the invisalign system. I have to say it's easy and painless and the results are fabulous. I have become aware of how nice my teeth feel and also how much confidence I feel when I smile. It is particularly noticeable to me when contrasted with my mother's current experiences with her teeth, which as with many people of her age, are causing a certain degree of discomfort and concern.
I can tell that my mother is trying not to smile. She spends a lot of time attempting to hide her teeth. Her confidence has begun a downward decent. Unfortunately the majority of us end up having a few problems with our teeth as we get older and we accept that as being the norm. What is not normal however is for a youngish person to have "bad teeth" caused by not visiting their dentist because of an unnecessary, but very real, fear.
The fact is that a lot of people are scared to death of their dentist. The knock on effect is the experiencing of pain as a result of bad teeth and also a loss of confidence because you are aware that your teeth don't look very nice. In reality, I think everyone knows that they shouldn't be afraid, but cannot get this logic to over-ride their automatic, instinctive and intensely felt fear.
These types of fears, or phobias, are in fact easy to overcome with the help of hypnosis. Hypnosis allows you to "get into" your instinctive thought processes - the place where your fear derives from. And so simply by listening to a hypnosis mp3 you can retrain your brain to overcome old and unnecessary fears and get yourself sitting in the dentist's chair feeling calm and relaxed. In this day and age, everyone can have straight teeth and a bright white smile. Why let your fears stop you from looking great and feeling confident?
