The Social Science Behind Cosmetic Dentistry
In an independent study in 2008, it was discovered: When respondents were questioned, “What exactly would you most want to improve with your own smile?” The most frequent answer was: “Brighter and Whiter Teeth”.
And when questioned, “What types of things do you feel make a smile unappealing?” The most frequent replies were:
- Stained, Discolored, or Yellow Teeth
- Missing Teeth
- Teeth That are Not Straight
- Rotting Teeth & Cavities
- Gaps & Spaces in Teeth
- Unbrushed Teeth
97% of adults believe that an attractive smile makes a particular person more desirable to members of the other sex. Three-quarters (76%) of adults think an unsightly smile can harm a person’s chances for job success.
Practically all Americans (99.7%) consider a smile is a crucial social asset.
Good or bad, your looks are critical in both the workplace and social environment.
As outlined in further studies by researchers in and around Irvine, most people take about three seconds evaluating your first impression just before they begin to develop a laundry list of impressions about your:
- educational level
- job competence
- social pedigree
- personal beliefs
Obviously, your smile is certainly one’s most attractive asset.
In the business environment or on the social scene, it’s a big part of starting off on the right foot. However, it’s more than just making a good first impression. Fixing just just one chipped tooth might make a positive difference in how you feel about yourself. A smile makeover can transform you into a positive personality with whom people enjoy spending time.
