You personally know how a whiter smile can affect your confidence. When stained or yellowed, you may become self-conscious, struggling to flash your smile toward others. But when the smile that greets you in the mirror is dazzling, you probably smile more.
From improving mood to enhancing interpersonal relationships, smiling has been shown to be an integral social-behavioral tool for people. But did you know that just having whiter teeth can lead to direct benefits to your life?
Whiter Smile Can Help You Secure That Job
A three-part study conducted at Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles, California found that a white smile can be seen from nearly 200 feet away.
The same study, which simulated job interviews and workplace interactions, found that teeth whitening increased the chance of securing a job or getting a salary increase. The interviewers and salary negotiators found the person with white teeth to be more confident and more professional.
White teeth don’t just affect you, they can influence the way others see you.
Whiter Smile Can Help Secure That Date
A recent survey of thousands of Americans asked them what was one of the first things they noticed in pictures on dating apps. Over 75% of respondents said: smile.
Your smile matters and if yellow or stained teeth have you hiding it, it can influence how others see you.
Why Professional Teeth Whitening Is Best
At-home teeth whitening kits can help; however, what’s found at the dentist is incomparable to your at-home results.
Not only are you treated by a professional with thousands of hours of experience but the concentration of ingredients found at the dentist’s is far greater than what you can buy anywhere.
This strength of solutions allows for a deeper whitening, resulting in a brighter smile than one you can make at home. Additionally, professional teeth whitening provides longer-lasting whitening and takes less time to achieve superior results.
