Studies reveal that the first thing we notice about strangers is their smile. And when we meet people with brilliant smiles, we automatically make positive assumptions about them. Among other things, we often presume that they are friendlier, healthier, more confident and more successful than folks with a lesser quality of smile.
Plus, a great smile can make you look more than a decade younger. Researchers for Oral B showed 2,000 people a photo of a woman with a perfect smile and asked them to guess her age. Then, they showed a picture of the same model with her teeth slightly yellowed and asked the question again. Participants placed the age of the woman with the pearly whites at 31, while the smile challenged twin was thought to be 44.
Clearly, a great smile goes a long way toward maximizing our social, romantic and workplace standing. So, what does that mean for those us who weren’t blessed with gleaming straight teeth? Or, what if our smiles have been marred by an accident or have simply become worn and diminished with age? Are we just expected to — pardon the expression — grin and bear it? Absolutely not!
