According to studies, there is evidence that having a beautiful, white smile directly effects the success of your interpersonal interactions, meaning that good-looking teeth can help both your social and professional life. One study conducted by an independent research firm and commissioned by Crest Whitestrips found that white smiles lead to more positive first impressions during job interviews and first dates. More than half of the people in the study were more likely to be hired and offered a larger salary after their teeth were whitened. In addition to these professional results, the study also found that it helped improve that the chance of a second date also improved with whiter teeth.
A national survey conducted by the American Dental Association also shows the importance of a beautiful smile, with people ranking an attractive smile as the most attractive physical feature on a person, more than their body, eyes or hair. And these results do not vary by gender, meaning that across the board, improving your smile can improve your life.
Whether better teeth lead to you being perceived as more professional, confident, healthy or warm, we know that it can have a positive impact on your life. Unfortunately though, not all of us have the best teeth, and it takes more than whitening to get them into a state that will have you smiling. However, with cosmetic dental techniques that include composite bonding, veneers, dental implants and whitening, it has become easier than ever to improve your smile, and after learning the results of these studies, why wouldn't you want to? Investing in your smile can lead to major payouts in your life, while helping you feel more attractive and healthy.
