Whether you’re a true believer in the power of astrology or the type of person whose only exposure to horoscopes comes from fortune cookies, it’s hard to deny the intrigue of these little bites of wisdom. That’s got us thinking about what it might be like if Dr. Todd Pizzi, your Shrewsbury, MA cosmetic dentist, doled out fortune cookies in place of toothbrushes. These dental horoscopes aren’t a substitute for a one-on-one consultation with your dentist, but we hope they’ll entertain you as they have us.
Aries: March 21 – April 20
You have boundless energy and are always up for something daring, especially when it comes to sports and other physical activities. Don’t let your impulsive nature endanger your teeth. Wear an athletic mouthguard to prevent a dental emergency caused by traumatic injury. If you’ve already cracked or chipped a tooth, it’s time to consider bonding or veneers.
Taurus: April 21 – May 21
Dependable, determined, and warm, you love to smile and are willing to work hard to achieve your goals. You’re also patient, and you’ll spend as much time as needed to achieve the best results. This makes you a good match for our two-phase professional teeth whitening treatment.
Gemini: May 22 – June 21
Geminis are clever, intelligent, and excellent communicators. They also tend to be somewhat prone to anxiety, which means you may find yourself chewing your fingernails or pencils when stressed. If your habit causes a chipped tooth, consider dental bonding or tooth contouring to smooth rough edges.
Cancer: June 22—July 22
Imaginative, loving, cautious, and protective, you rarely put your teeth in harm’s way. Your belief that less is more makes you an excellent candidate for tooth contouring, which removes only a negligible amount of your tooth rather than covering it altogether.
Leo: July 23—August 21
Leos are creative, loyal, and generous, but they also tend to a bit above it all. You sometimes feel invincible, which may lead you to skip much-needed dental exams and teeth cleaning. If your teeth start to appear yellow as a result, ask us about the Kor Deep Bleaching system.
Virgo: August 22—September 23
You’re analytical, always weighing the pros and cons of each option. You’re intelligent but modest, preferring not to call attention to yourself. It’s a good thing we can create custom-tinted porcelain veneers to make your teeth appear just a few shades whiter than your own enamel. A subtle improvement!
Libra: September 24—October 23
Others describe you as romantic, charming, and highly social. You’re also somewhat indecisive, so you may have been wavering to and fro on whether to seek cosmetic dental treatment. Fortunately, your Shrewsbury cosmetic dentist will be happy to answer your questions in a consultation.
Scorpio: October 24—November 22
You’re exciting, forceful, and slightly compulsive, which makes you more likely than most to brush your teeth too aggressively. If your brushing has worn through your tooth enamel, consider veneers to restore your smile.
Sagittarius: November 23—December 22
You’re an optimist at heart and almost always in a good mood. Sometimes you get restless until you see the results of your efforts, which may explain why you are reluctant to undergo the typical two-year orthodontic treatment with traditional braces. Sounds like you’d benefit from Six Month Smiles.
Capricorn: December 23—January 20
Capricorns are practical, disciplined, and patient. You want straighter teeth, and you certainly don’t mind visiting your dentist every few weeks to receive a new plastic aligner for your invisible braces. Either way, you know that you’ll follow through even if it means wearing a retainer afterward.
Aquarius: January 21—February 19
A true humanitarian who takes pride in your loyalty and relationships with others, you sometimes find it hard to say “no” when asked to do a favor. As a result, you often find yourself running errands or helping friends or coworkers tie up loose ends. You don’t have time to make more than one appointment as required for veneers, which means you’re a good candidate for bonding, which can be completed in one visit.
Pisces: February 20—March 20
Pisces are compassionate, sympathetic, and selfless. You comfort others with your smile, so you feel it’s important that your teeth look natural and healthy in spite of a few chips and flaws. Porcelain veneers retain the naturally luminous, translucent quality of tooth enamel for several years at a time.
