It’s a bright new day: Is your smile ready for summer?

While we enjoy year round sunshine in Fort Myers, Florida, warm Gulf breezes and longer days remind us that summer is on the way. And for many that means weddings, vacations, photo opps and other celebrations to make you smile.


For many of our patients here at Mitchell Dentistry, now is the time to make sure those smiles are ready. The numbers show that we all place a high value on our teeth and their appearance. Here are some interesting statistics from an American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry survey:

  • Virtually all adults (99.7%) believe a smile is an important social asset. 96% of adults believe an attractive smile makes a person more appealing to members of the opposite sex.
  • Three-quarters (74%) of adults feel an unattractive smile can hurt a person’s chance for career success.
  • And when respondents were asked, “What would you like to improve most about your smile?” The most common response was: Whiter & brighter teeth.

Are you happy with your smile? If you are, that’s wonderful. But if you feel some enhancement might be in order, please let us know. We would be happy to consult with you about teeth whitening or other ways to improve your smile.

All the best,

Dr. Jim
