Cosmetic dentistry aids to success in the workplace…and in life.

You might be wondering if having a beautiful smile can really make such a huge impact on your career or daily life. But it really does. Having a great smile paves the way to success in you getting hired, getting promoted, and building long lasting rapport with coworkers and clients. 

Despite it being unidealistic, people make initial judgments about you based on your appearance.  Studies show it takes 7 seconds to form a first impression of someone. 55% of this assessment is purely based on appearance, according to a Forbes article titled, “Seven Seconds to Make a First Impression.”

People who smile more appear confident, approachable, trustworthy and more successful. When someone who doesn’t like their smile chooses to hide it, they appear sullen, and unapproachable. Their lack of confidence indicates they are not a leader and employers are less likely to give them a shot at a promotion because of this. It also gives the appearance of being unhygienic or unhealthy, which sadly also doesn’t leave a good impression on employers—or anyone else.

In addition to being aesthetically unpleasing, when someone has a crooked smile, it may eventually get worse or lead to other dental problems. Yellow or stained teeth could also indicate tooth decay or disease.

What can be done to improve your smile?

There are two types of dental patients:

  1. Patients who care only about the appearance of their teeth
  2. Patients who care about both the appearance and the functionality and health of their teeth

There are several procedures that can help make your smile white and bright. But it depends on which patient you identify as above. Some of the procedures include veneers, bleaching, traditional cleanings, crowns and bonding. And Valley Family Dentistry is well equipped to help every type of patient.

Valley Family Dentistry takes the time to make personal suggestions to each patient with procedures that would work best for them. They listen to your concerns and are happy to accommodate each type of patient. Most people are pleasantly surprised to find out a simple procedure can drastically change the appearance of their teeth in a single visit in the dental chair.

Valley Family Dentistry staff views themselves as your personal and number one dental advocate. We encourage you to come in and finally obtain the smile you’ve always been wanting. It will not only boost your confidence, but will directly affect the relationships with the people around you, including employers waiting to give that self-assured smile a well-earned promotion.
