Too often, people think of cosmetic dentistry as a luxury or something completely frivolous, but cosmetic dentistry is more than just an exercise in vanity. In fact, having a beautiful smile can really pay off in a number of ways.
If you are still in the workforce, chances are that you work with people nearly every day. As you know, sometimes people can be judgmental about appearances. In fact, your smile is often the first thing that people notice about you. What does your smile project? Are you confident or self-conscious when you smile? When a client chooses to do business with someone, whom do you think they are most likely to choose?
While these judgments may be unjust and unfair because your teeth probably have little to do with how well you do your job, it’s all part of how people perceive one another. Projecting an image of beauty and health can pay off!
Are you looking for love? Is your smile kissable? Popular dating websites list teeth and smiles as one of the first thing that people notice about one another. Confidence is another popular trait, but what if your smile makes you feel self-conscious? They might pass you by even though you’re a total catch! Small nuances like self-consciousness about your appearance are easy to detect and we all know that awkwardness is a turn off!
Whether it’s fair or not, people are attracted to more than just your sense of humor, so putting your best face forward can make you more confident and attractive!
