Virtually all Americans (99.7%) believe a smile is an important social asset. Consumer studies have proved that a beautiful smile will make you more attractive, but according to recent research conducted for the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry a new smile will also make you appear more intelligent, interesting, successful and wealthy.
A smile makeover can increase your self-confidence when meeting new people, giving presentations and conducting meetings. It allows you to translate emotions and ideas more easily to colleagues, clients and friends.
74% of adults feel an unattractive smile can hurt an individual's chance for success and that people have very specific preferences about the way a smile should appear. When asked "what is the first thing you notice in a person's smile?" the most common responses were:
- Whiteness and color of teeth
- Sincerity of smile
- Missing teeth
- Sparkle of smile
When asked "what types of things do you consider make a smile unattractive?" the most common responses were:
- Discolored, yellow or stained teeth
- Missing teeth
- Crooked teeth
- Cavities and decay
- Gaps and spaces
And finally when respondents were asked "what would you most like to improve about your smile," the most common response was "whiter and brighter teeth."
