How Can Brighter Teeth Help You Be More Successful at Work?
Whiter Teeth Boost Your Confidence
When you smile, you can reduce your anxiety levels. Even if you aren’t feeling particularly tense on the inside about a particular interview or presentation, when you put on a smiling face, this will help you to appear more friendly, confident, and approachable. These are all traits that will help you in a professional environment. By feeling confident about your teeth and showing them off, you can keep yourself looking confident in the presence of your colleagues.
Uniform Teeth Demonstrate a Strong Work Ethic
Teeth that are free of uneven discoloration help to demonstrate that you’re committed to taking excellent care of yourself. If you can be responsible for your presentability, you are suggesting that you are likely to do the same in your work. Having a bright smile also suggests other positive attributes, like good health, intelligence, and success.
Having a Gorgeous Smile Makes You More Attractive
If you aren’t showing off your teeth very often due to staining and discoloration, you could be putting off the impression that you’re unapproachable or untrustworthy. This isn’t something that you want to demonstrate while you’re at work. A friendly smile helps you to seem much more outgoing. Discoloration is also associated with aging, so brightening up your teeth can increase your youthfulness!
How Does Professional Teeth Whitening Work?
Picking out a teeth whitening kit from your local supermarket probably won’t be giving you those beautiful results that you’re looking for. They can even be harmful since they are made to be “one-size-fits-all.” A better option would be to see your dentist. Here are your options:
- In-Office Teeth Whitening: With KÖR Combination Whitening Treatment or Light-Activated Zoom Treatment, you can walk out of the dental office with a smile several shades whiter.
- Take-Home Teeth Whitening: With DayWhite or NiteWhite, you can see results in just two weeks. You will be given custom trays and a highly concentrated whitening agent.
Your appearance isn’t everything, but having a bright, uniform smile certainly doesn’t hurt! Talk to your dentist about your whitening options. You will be showing off your pearly whites with pride in no time!
