According to research conducted for the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, 48% of adults say that a smile is the most memorable feature when first meeting someone – almost twice the impact of what a person says when you first meet!
A good first impression can really make a difference. If a white smile makes such an impact, in what ways can teeth whitening actually improve your life?
Boost Your Confidence with a Whiter Smile
You know that feeling when you’re wearing your favorite outfit, just had a great haircut or maybe you’ve been working out at the gym and it’s time for a beach vacation? That feeling of confidence is also possible with a whiter smile!
If you’re applying for a new job, you should certainly whiten your teeth! A simulated job interview study by P&G found that 65% of study participants were viewed as ‘more professional’ and 61% were seen as ‘more confident.’ People who have had their teeth whitened or who have worked to maintain a clean, white smile, enjoy a boost of confidence every day!
Spread the Love with Your Smile
Just as a whiter smile will build your confidence, you’ll also find you smile more! When you smile more often, you are more approachable to others and give off a positive perception. A white, beautiful smile can help you as you go on dates, meet new people, or just lift your spirits and make you smile more often. The same P&G study found that, during a simulated date exercise, almost 60% of participants were viewed as more outgoing after their teeth had been whitened.
With whiter, brighter teeth, people discover they want to show them off and smile more! In turn, when you’re happy, others around you find themselves more relaxed and comfortable. A whiter smile is a win-win for everyone!
Whiter Teeth Bring a Youthful Glow
Our teeth work hard for us, and sometimes we don’t give them the attention they deserve. By committing to good oral hygiene practices and whitening discolored or stained teeth, you’ll have a healthier smile that can make you look younger! A study in the U.K. by Oral-B found that having white teeth can take 5 years off your age and increase your attractiveness by 20%!
When you invest in a whiter smile you will, in turn, want to keep them white and care for them more! The result is long-lasting, white teeth that will help you look more youthful, healthier, and attractive, which can lead to other improvements in your life!
