The Cold Facts Are…
Within an independent analysis in 2008, it was discovered: Practically all Americans (98.7%) think a smile is an important social asset. 97% of adult men and women believe an attractive smile makes a particular person more pleasing to people of the opposite sex. Three-quarters (76%) of adults think an unattractive smile can damage an individual’s probability for career success. Investigators questioned, “What’s the first thing you observe in someone else’s smile?” The most frequent answers were:
- A Straight Smile
- Whiteness and Shade of Teeth
- Cleanliness of Teeth
- Sincerity of the Smile
- Missing Any Teeth?
Then respondents were asked, “Precisely what would you most want to further improve about your own smile?” The most frequent answer was: “Brighter and Whiter Teeth”.
It doesn’t require getting a “Million Dollar” smile, however…
…enhancing your smile can make you look younger, boost your self-esteem and self-confidence, as well as increase your communication skills, your attractiveness, and positively affect your personal and professional connections. As outlined in more research by social psychologists, many people take around 4 seconds appraising the way you look just before they start to create a list of impressions regarding your:
- academic level
- career competence
- sense of humor
- and your social heritage.
Good or bad, this means appearances matter in today’s world.
Obviously, your smile is one of your most attractive attributes.
