Are you ready for some shocking statistics? According to the Academy of General Dentistry, a whopping 96% of people believe that a smile is important to a person’s appearance. Furthermore, roughly 40% of survey respondents shared that a smile is the first thing they notice when meeting a new coworker. So, it’s safe to say that a healthy, confident smile can make all the difference. Keep reading for a few priceless benefits of a dazzling smile and how Invisalign can transform yours!
The Benefits of a Healthy, Confident Smile
Properly aligned, healthy, beautiful teeth can make your life easier in more ways than one. Here are just a few of the perks that researchers have found:
- Great First Impression – Did you know that people with dazzling smiles are viewed with more positive attributes, like trustworthy, competent, and healthy? It’s true! Furthermore, pristine teeth can help you speak clearly, which is the foundation of clear communication. Lastly, good oral health will prevent unpleasant odors from lingering on your breath, ensuring you’re minty fresh whether you’re heading into a job interview or going on a first date.
- Higher Self-Esteem – From minor crowding to pigmented stains, dental flaws can make smiling confidently nearly impossible. As a result, you made duck for cover when it comes time to take pictures or avoid social interactions altogether. Luckily, your smile goals are never out of reach! Transforming your grin can give you the confidence boost you need to feel like yourself again.
- Professional Success – According to a recent survey on hiring managers, nearly 40% cited lack of smiling as a deciding factor in the selection process. Plus, job applicants with brighter smiles were significantly more likely to get an offer (and at a higher salary too!). So, if you have your eye on your dream job or promotion, make sure to freshen up your smile along with your resume.
- You Live Longer – It’s no secret that your oral health directly impacts your overall wellbeing. Crooked, cracked, or otherwise flawed teeth can increase your chances of developing a dental problem, like gingivitis. Luckily, your dentist can intervene to prevent conditions like these from developing with a mixture of restorative and cosmetic care.
How Invisalign Can Make Your Smile Goals a Reality
If crooked, spaced-out, or misaligned teeth are stopping you from enjoying the above benefits, it’s important to note that you don’t have to endure years of metal braces to transform your smile. Instead, you can use Invisalign’s clear aligners! This innovative approach to orthodontics uses practically invisible trays to exert just enough pressure to incrementally guide your teeth into an entirely new position. After completing your series of aligners, you’ll have the healthy, straight, beautiful teeth you’ve always wanted! To take the next step toward making your smile goals a reality, schedule an initial consultation with your dentist today.
