Have you ever noticed how a bright and effervescent smile suddenly makes you feel better about life or more secure? When we deal with people with these types of smiles, we tend to feel better about our associations. A person with a crooked or dull smile causes us to feel suspicious, or not quite trustful and sure. Indeed, our smile makes a big difference in how we are perceived.
What People Notice First
One study revealed that people who meet you will notice your smile first. Therefore, when it comes to first impressions, it pays to invest in our smile. Studies also showed people with brighter and straighter teeth tended to get employed before people whose teeth were yellow or crooked. In addition, you are more likely to go out on a second date if you have a whiter and shinier smile. While that may not seem fair, you still have to consider its importance to you personally and professionally.
What Is the Best Way to Brighten or Straighten Teeth?
If you want to brighten your teeth or straighten them, you can choose from several cosmetic options. You can select in-office whitening, invisible braces (for straightening), or have veneers put on the teeth. Veneers are thin shells that are placed on the front teeth to whiten them or improve the appearance of teeth with gaps or chips. You may also consider whitening your teeth at home. Usually, this lower cost option entails using trays with whitening gel to gradually transform your smile.
If you would like to enhance your smile, we can help. Whether you choose veneers or have your teeth whitened in our office, you will like the outcome. Change your smile and change your life. Give us a call today. We can fit you in at a time that is convenient for you.
