Did you know that people with dental problems are less likely to thrive at school and work? A flawed smile can impact both your oral health as well as your appearance in ways that interfere with your productivity. Fortunately, your dentist can mend or repair imperfections with cosmetic dental treatments. Keep reading to learn 3 ways that addressing issues in your teeth can contribute to your success!

#1: Make Great First Impressions

One of the first things people notice when meeting someone new is their smile. Your facial expressions, grin included, communicate a lot about how you’re feeling and who you are. If you have problems with your teeth like chips, overcrowding, or discoloration then you’re more likely to remain tight-lipped. This may inadvertently signal to the people around you that you’re unfriendly or uninterested in engaging with them.

On the other hand, an open, relaxed expression says that you’re feeling open and approachable. That’s exactly the message you want to convey when you’re meeting a new client, presenting a concept, or pitching a new idea. Your dentist can mask flaws with treatments like porcelain veneers or Lumineers so that you’re sure to make a stellar first impression every time.

#2: Enhance Your Confidence

If you’re feeling anxious about how others will perceive you, it can lead to a lack of self-confidence. This can hinder your job performance because you need to believe in yourself and in your skills and abilities to be successful. For example, if you’re worried that your grin is stained, you may not speak up during work meetings and are less willing to engage in social or networking activities. Plus, if you don’t think you’ll be taken seriously or your ideas will be accepted, you might voluntarily step back and allow someone else to take the lead.

By addressing the issue with professional teeth whitening, you’ll no longer have to worry about how your smile will be perceived. Then, you’ll be much more able to put your best foot forward.

#3: Improve Your Attendance

Although your appearance is certainly impacted by imperfect teeth, it’s not the only factor to be concerned about. Your oral health can suffer, too. It’s harder to keep crooked and overcrowded teeth clean, for instance, because you can’t reach all the surfaces when you brush and floss them. You’re more prone to developing cavities or gum disease as a result. If those go unchecked, you could end up with an emergency root canal or other problem that requires multiple dental appointments and recovery time away from school or work.

Your dentist can provide Invisalign to straighten your teeth so you’re able to thoroughly scrub them regularly. These clear, plastic aligners fit snuggly over your pearly whites to gently reposition them without the need for intrusive metal brackets. It’s a wonderful way to even out your teeth while simultaneously improving your dental well-being so you don’t miss important projects, meetings, or deadlines.

Your dentist can help you gain a happier, healthier smile so you can be more successful in all your endeavors.
