People can make judgments about each other based on appearance. Studies show that strangers tend to associate stained, decaying, and missing teeth with a lack of good health and hygiene. Conversely, a full, bright smile that shows healthy, white teeth implies overall good health and high intelligence. Our biases are often unconscious (and incorrect) and they impact many aspects of our lives, including our success at pursuing and obtaining employment. How does your smile improve your job prospects?
Many modern celebrities often use their first paycheck to improve their smile and their job prospects. Stars do everything from tooth whitening to straightening crooked teeth, from replacing missing teeth to oral surgery to correct more complicated dental problems. In their business being considered “vital and healthy” is essential no matter what their age, and an attractive smile is one of the first things everyone notices.
The good news is you don’t have to be a celebrity to make improvements to your smile. The “new you” is as close as our office. When you repair broken or missing teeth and create a beautiful smile you will make a more favorable impression on others. And, you will also find that you project a positive attitude and self-confidence, which will go a long way toward making a great impression on prospective employers.
Luckily, the procedures involved to create a beautiful smile can also improve your overall oral health! And overall good health in your body and mouth is the best, long-lasting investment you can make in yourself and your future.
