Person is often judged by the first impression and that impression happens in first few seconds of initial contact. Based on that impression we shape our behavior toward individual we met. Many of us have similar issue – teeth. People avoid smiling because of major concern about what the other party will think about them when he or she noticed the wide gap between first two lower teeth.

Dark yellow color, unequal length of the teeth, chip, under bites, overbites, or inter crossed teeth can cause psychological but also a physical issues. Psychological refers to person’s low self esteem and self respect, caused by the fear of environmental reaction. Physical issue refers to inability to chew normal which can lead into the series of severe medical conditions.
Both psychological and physical issues can be easily solved by going to cosmetic dentistry Chicago. The appearance of teeth, gums or bite can be improved with a little of dental work. Many people suffer from over-sized gums. This issue can be solved by the cosmetic procedure (dental) called Gum lift. Dentist is re-sculpting the gums to achieve better appearance.
