Why Some Spend More Time on Their Teeth

April 30, 2014 by Frost Orthodontics

Most Americans are concerned about their appearance, which includes their smile. For some, appearances are not only important—it can mean the difference in their paycheck. Those in sales and even some professionals know how far an impressive appearance will go for both their confidence and other people’s confidence in them.

Your face and your smile are often two of the first things others will see when meeting you, so that’s a great place to make the right first impression. And while people are attracted to a great smile, having one also does wonders for your confidence.

In fact, a recent study from the University of Manchester in Britain showed that subjects with poor or missing teeth had dramatically lower self-confidence. These subjects are conscious about their teeth and often avoid smiling, which affects their own mood as well as the impressions of others. Some studies have suggested that the act of smiling alone can improve one’s mood and that seeing others smile indicates that they are intelligent and trustworthy.

Professionals and businesspeople know this is the case, which is why many spend more time on their teeth. From good daily hygiene to investing in braces or Invisalign, working towards a great looking smile is good for their health and their careers.

If you think you don’t have the time for braces or even Invisalign, you will be surprised at how quickly and easily you can get fitted. Plus, Invisalign is invisible while you’re using it, so your smile will look progressively better during the treatment without having to see braces in the mirror.
