 A smile can send a powerful message. It has the ability to evoke some of our strongest emotions, the energy to radiate passion and positivity and the subtlety to influence personal and professional relationships. Yet not everyone has the confidence to smile and it could simply be because you are unhappy or self-conscious about your teeth or being held back by poor oral and dental health.

 This week sees the launch of National Smile Month and The ‘Smile Factor’ Campaign. The aim of the campaign is to put the smile back on peoples’ faces and help them display their full personalities through their smile.

And at Cosmetic White Smiles, we have a passion for making our people smile.

From raising awareness of a healthy diet and the links between oral health and general health, to delivering the latest advances and techniques in preventative and cosmetic dentistry, our aim for you is a healthy, radiant and confident smile.

 So if you’re wondering how to capture some of your own x-factor, whether it be at work or in your personal life, take a closer look at your teeth and smile.

After all, whether you love them or dislike them and regardless of their career moves and marriage woes in the very public limelight, Cheryl Cole and Simon Cowell still manage to dazzle us all with their x-factor smiles.
