What are the first things you notice about people when you meet them in-person? Studies have shown that it’s most likely their eyes and mouths. Conversely, your eyes and mouth are what others initially note about you. That’s why a fantastic grin is a great asset, and a dentist is the person to see about getting one.
At the office of Merrick Dental Arts, we provide a warm and welcoming experience for each patient. We pride ourselves on utilizing the most modern equipment and methods available to improve the oral health of all of our patients’ teeth.
Here are four ways that a stunning smile behooves you.
It boosts your confidence. It’s tough to not be self-conscious or shy when your teeth are stained, chipped or in obvious need of restorative work. You may make a concerted effort to suppress or hide your smile. But after successful dental treatment, you’ll be free to sport a wide smile when your picture is being taken, and while you’re having fun with friends and meeting new people. You won’t want to dodge social or business situations. The absence of your fears will add a spring to your step and let you embrace the moment.
You look better. Yes, it’s unfair to judge someone based on his/her appearance, but our society relishes beauty and youth nonetheless. Father Time takes his toll eventually, but well-maintained teeth last forever and contribute to a youthful façade.
Others think more of you. Kelton Research, a prestigious consumer insights and strategy consulting firm, conducted a study during which participants were shown images of people with varying tooth issues and asked to give their honest opinion about them. The partakers weren’t aware that they were comparing people with attractive teeth to people with unkempt teeth. The results concluded that most Americans believe that people with pleasing smiles have more desirable traits than those with less-than-appealing smiles.
Your climb up the career ladder is quicker. Though professional success is never guaranteed, experiments have shown that people with attractive smiles have a better chance of promotion and increased pay compared to candidates who don’t.
