The Social Science Behind Cosmetic Dentistry
The Cold Facts Are…
Within an independent analysis in 2008, it was found: Almost all Americans (98.7%) feel a smile is a vital social asset.
97% of adults feel a stunning smile really makes a person more desirable to people of the opposite sex.
Three-quarters (76%) of us truly feel an unattractive smile can damage someone’s odds for job success.
Investigators asked, “What exactly is the initial thing you notice in someone else’s smile?” The most frequent responses were:
- A Straight Smile
- Brightness & Color of Teeth
- Cleanness of Teeth
- Is Their Smile Sincere?
- Missing Any Teeth?
- Sparkle of Smile
Then participants answered this question, “Precisely what would you most want to improve about your own smile?” The most frequent answer was: “Brighter & Whiter Teeth”.
For better or worse, your looks are critical in both the workplace and social setting.
As outlined in further studies by social psychologists in and around Irvine, the majority of people take about 3 seconds evaluating your appearance just before they begin to create a laundry list of opinions about your:
- academic level
- job skills
- social cast
- personal mores
Obviously, your smile is likely your most critical possession.
