A Plus Dental Tips: 4 Ways Cosmetic Dentistry Can Enhance Self-Esteem
When surveyed, many adults express unhappiness with their smiles. The good news is that an expanding range of options in cosmetic dentistry is giving these people the opportunity to feel confident in their smiles.
According to a 2015 study, more than one-third of adult respondents were unhappy with their smile.
This is because they know that a smile is often the first thing people notice – it is often the first impression that one gives. This awareness means that dissatisfaction with your smile can significantly impact self-confidence.
In the study, 78 per cent of those surveyed viewed other adults with crooked teeth as unsuccessful. At the same time, 36 per cent of those surveyed believed they would have a better social life if their smile could be improved and nearly half of respondents (48 per cent) reported untagging an unflattering Facebook picture because they did not like how their smile looked.
The advantages of a winning smile can be broken down into 4 categories:
- Social life benefits of cosmetic dentistry. The self-esteem boost from cosmetic dental treatments improves your social life, in minor ways and major ways. If you have an attractive smile, you don’t have to cover your mouth when you smile or laugh, and science shows us that just the act of your smiling helps others to feel better. And the effects are real. In a study called “The Impact of Whiter Teeth on Key First Impressions”, participants demonstrated a greater interest in continuing a mock date with 54% of the subjects after their teeth had been whitened. And, on the mock first dates, 59% of study participants were viewed to be more outgoing after teeth whitening. A better smile can mean a better social life.
- Career benefits of cosmetic dentistry. Attractive teeth can be quite helpful for your career. This can give you an edge in interviewing and promotions, and put you ahead when it comes to actual on-the-job duties. Kelton (a research, insights & strategy company) conducted a study to determine the value a smile has in the interview process. According to that study, applicants with straight teeth were 45% more likely to get hired than those with crooked teeth. The study mentioned previously showed that nearly two-thirds (58%) of the study participants were more likely to be hired and received better salary offers (53%) after tooth whitening. The study also found that a majority of the study participants were viewed as more professional (65%) and confident (61%) after teeth whitening.
- Aesthetic benefits of cosmetic dentistry. Healthy teeth help you look younger. And there are different cosmetic dentistry procedures, such as dental veneers, implants and teeth whitening, that can help improve your smile and make you look and feel younger.
- Health benefits of cosmetic dentistry. Poor oral health means more than tooth decay and gum disease. People with poor dental health are more likely to be diagnosed with heart disease, diabetes, kidney problems and pancreatic and oral cancer. Cosmetic dentistry boosts oral health and often leads to improved regular care.
