The Look of Your Smile Affects How People Look at You

If you think that the appearance of your teeth doesn’t matter, think again. People often judge us by the way we look, and recent research shows that the attractiveness of our teeth and smile can greatly affect how people view us. Fortunately, proper dental care and today’s cosmetic treatments can make it simple to make a good impression.

According to a survey by of more than 1,000 Americans by Kelton Research, people with straight teeth and a healthy-looking smile make much better first impressions. The study showed that people with great smiles are viewed as more financially stable, professionally successful, happy, healthy, and intelligent. They are also thought of as more socially attractive and worthy of dating. And nearly 75 percent of respondents said they would be more likely to trust a person with a nice smile than someone with a good career, a fashionable outfit, or an impressive car. And all of these positive qualities are attributed to someone solely because of that person’s dental care.

Plus, 87 percent of respondents said that they would forgo something they really like for an entire year, if it meant having a beautiful smile for the rest of their lives.

Whether in person or online, personally or professionally, a nice-looking smile has much greater importance than you might expect.

Because your smile says so much about you, you want to do all you can to keep it looking its best. Now cosmetic dentists offer a variety of options that can significantly improve your smile, including whitening, straightening, and implants. These procedures have become extremely popular as more and more people recognize the impact their smile can have on their appearance and their life in general. With so many affordable cosmetic options, you no longer have to live with an unattractive smile.

Whitening is one of the fastest and easiest ways to improve your smile. By simply removing the stains and yellowing from your teeth you can take years off your appearance and look a million times better. There are many ways to whiten your teeth, from at-home kits to in-office treatments. Over-the-counter whitening kits are a common option, but they can cause uneven splotches and tooth sensitivity if they are not used correctly. These products are less expensive, but they also whiten less effectively. For the best and brightest results, you should have your teeth professionally whitened by an affordable dentist.

If you feel self-conscious about missing or damaged teeth, dental implants can put your mind at ease by restoring your lost teeth with replacements that look, feel, and function like your natural teeth. And besides improving the look of your smile, they can also improve your facial appearance, your confidence, your dental health, your speech, and your overall quality of life. Dental implants are often chosen over dentures because they are permanent, easier to maintain, and more comfortable.

Yet another way to enhance the appearance of your teeth is through straightening. Maybe you didn’t wear braces as a child, or your teeth have shifted with time—but either way it’s never too late to fix your crooked teeth. And best of all, with today’s new invisible braces you can straighten your teeth without anyone knowing.

Now that you know the impact of your smile and your options for improving it, you can take control of the way you look and really wow the world.
