Having picture-perfect pearly whites can impact many aspects of your life. Your self-confidence will increase, which leads you to smile more. In turn, you reap various health benefits. But did you know that having beautiful teeth can also positively impact your career? Oftentimes, when climbing the corporate ladder, people want to perfect their resumes or improve their wardrobes. However, a smile can help you achieve success, too! Read on to learn the connection between the two as well as some cosmetic dental treatments that can transform your grin.
What Does Your Smile Say to Employers?
It’s often said that a first impression can never be undone. In just seven seconds, you will make an instant impact on your employer solely based on your appearance. One of the easiest ways to make a memorable meeting is a smile! So, you want to make sure it’s in top condition.
Research has proven that people with a “more attractive” grin were perceived to be better candidates for job openings, even if they were less experienced. Additionally, studies have shown that employers often associate straight teeth with positive attributes, like happiness, intelligence, and health. Even simply having whiter teeth can make a difference! Bright pearly whites appear youthful and increase the chances of landing a job and being offered a higher salary.
Cosmetic Dental Treatments to Improve Your Smile
There is a wide variety of cosmetic dental services available to achieve your dream smile. Here are just three of the most common ones:
Professional Teeth Whitening
Over time, your smile can become less vibrant. Certain foods and drinks can begin to stain and discolor your teeth. Fortunately, you can brighten your pearly whites with professional teeth whitening! You can opt for in-house treatment for an instantly brighter smile. Or you can whiten your smile at home. Your dentist will provide you with custom-made trays and special bleaching agents. After wearing the treatment as directed for a few weeks, your smile will be several shades whiter.
Cosmetic Tooth Bonding
You may just want to fix just a small issue with your smile. Cosmetic bonding is the perfect solution for minor chips, cracks, breaks, gaps, and stains. By applying a tooth-colored resin to the flawed tooth and sculpting it to perfection, these issues are quickly masked in as little as one hour.
Invisalign uses sets of clear aligners to gradually move your teeth into their desired position. Compared to traditional braces, they are very discreet and comfortable. Within 10 to 12 months, you will have the more aligned smile you have always wanted.
Achieving your career goals is possible and a bright, beautiful smile can help you! With the assistance of your dentist, you can transform your pearly whites and your future.
