Smile For Success

smile for successDo you have a smile for success? It doesn’t matter what your job is, when you interact with people on a daily basis, your face is front and center and so is your smile. If your teeth are not in good condition, you may worry that people’s gaze goes directly to your mouth.  A good smile helps your confidence.

You may hope that your teeth don’t really matter in the grand scheme of things, but the truth is that it matters more than you think.  According to the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, 74 percent of Americans believe an unattractive smile can affect a person’s career negatively.

If you have a stained or crooked smile, people may assume that you don’t care enough about your teeth.  This reflects poorly on you because then people may assume you won’t care about your job either. Also, if you are worried about your smile, you probably worry that others notice it too.  This can throw you off and be distracting when you are trying to get the job done.

So how do you get a smile for success?  Cosmetic dentistry solutions like porcelain veneers, Lumineers and dental implants can be completed in as few as two visits to the dentist.  Teeth whitening can also be done quickly and even from your own home.  Consider these simple procedures to improve your smile.  If you have any questions, contact your dentist right away.
