Can Cosmetic Dental Treatments Improve Your Career Success?

When you’re getting ready to interview for a job, negotiate a salary, or close a sale, your outfit and qualifications are certainly important. But another important factor that affects your chances of accomplishing your goals is your smile. Studies have found that an attractive, healthy-looking smile can boost your chances of career success. However, if you’re self-conscious about discolored, broken, uneven, or otherwise imperfect teeth, you might not smile as often as you should, which could leave a negative impression on an employer or customer. Fortunately, cosmetic dental treatments can improve your smile and professional success. Read more to learn how.

WHAT DOES YOUR SMILE SAY TO EMPLOYERS?

First impressions matter, especially in job interviews. Smiling starts a silent dialogue the moment you walk into the room, before you even begin talking. Some studies have shown that candidates whose smiles were “more attractive” were perceived to be more well-qualified for the position, even if they had less experience.

Researchers have also discovered that employers are more likely to associate positive attributes, such as wealth, success, happiness, intelligence, and good health, to people who have straight teeth. Additionally, people with white teeth are considered more attractive and are more likely to be hired and offered a higher salary.

Lastly, people with attractive smiles are perceived as healthier. If you have to frequently miss work to correct dental problems, that can hinder workplace productivity.

HOW YOU CAN INVEST IN YOUR SMILE

Here are some of the numerous cosmetic dental treatments that can improve your smile:

TEETH WHITENING

Whether you choose fast in-office whitening or gradual at-home whitening, this professional treatment uses bleaching gel that’s exponentially more potent than store-bought products, drastically brightening your smile.

PORCELAIN VENEERS

To correct more stubborn stains, as well as chips, cracks, small gaps, and misshapen teeth, your dentist can place these ceramic shells over the front surfaces of your teeth.

INVISALIGN CLEAR BRACES

These transparent aligners discreetly and comfortably straighten your teeth, allowing you to maintain your professional image while undergoing treatment.

DENTAL IMPLANTS

Missing one or more teeth can negatively impact your self-esteem, career opportunities, and even your oral health. As the only option that replicates the root of the lost tooth as well as the crown, dental implants offer unmatched advantages, including increased chewing power and jawbone stimulation that supports your facial structure and keeps you looking young.
