Men look to cosmetic dentistry to enhance their smile
Updated: 10/17/2008 10:00:27 AM
 

Men look to cosmetic dentistry to enhance their smile It may be a stereotype that men are less concerned with their appearance than women, but some dental health experts think otherwise.

Academy of General Dentistry spokesperson Dr J. Nick Russo said that he has noticed an increasing number of male patients are interested in cosmetic dentistry procedures such as veneers, bleaching and bonding.

He suggested that this trend may be due in part to a need to be more competitive in the workplace.

"Many have noticed the positive effects from a colleague's improved smile and realize that a great smile has a lot of value in the business world," Russo explained.

Men may be growing more interested in improving their smiles, but a poll of dentists conducted by the AGD revealed that many respondents believe men are generally more reluctant to visit a dentist than women are.

The Pennsylvania Dental Association has also drawn attention to this reluctance, citing statistics indicating that men are more likely than women to suffer from both gum disease and oral cancer - which suggests that they should instead make dental care a priority.
