We’ve all heard that someone with whiter teeth makes a good first impression right? Well, there’s more to it than just a good impression. Let’s take a closer look at what people think about someone with a white smile.
There is a younger crowd going to the dentist nowadays for dental procedures, but why is that? In fact, there are three times as many patients aged 29 and younger than patients ages 60 and up even though the latter need dental treatment more.
When a young adult invests in their smile, they are investing in themselves. It has been surveyed that someone with whiter teeth are thought to earn over $10,000 more than they actually do. A whiter smile also can make you look up to 5 years younger and improves your employment potential by 10%.
In a study conducted by Philips, the same company that makes Zoom Whitening products, they found that 55% of adults believe that an individual’s smile is the best physical indicator of how friendly they are. In this same survey, 78% of adults thought that an individual’s smile reveals a lot about their character, and over half of the people in this survey said that if they could fix just one thing about their smile, it would be the whiteness of their teeth.
As you can see, it is important in todays competitive work environment, to keep up your physical appearance. Your physical appearance can make the difference between a client trusting you or not. You can even send a message to a prospective client, or the like, that you are more successful than you really are. The impressions people walk away with will be of a successful, young, trustworthy business person.
