When you were younger, your parents told you over and over again how important it was to brush your teeth. They were right but they may not have realized why. Surveys and studies have consistently shown that white, evenly spaced teeth make people more attractive to others. The reasoning behind this is simple and can be compared to the animal equivalent of a peacock’s tail. Perfect teeth that are straight and white are good signs of health and genetic quality that can help you choose a mate.
In one study, a group of younger men and women were shown a variety of photos of models that had teeth ranging in three shades-
- Yellowish brown
- Healthy white
- Bleached white
These people were then asked which they found most attractive. Obviously, the yellow teeth were found to be the least attractive. One surprising twist to this study is that the state of the teeth was almost as important as their color! This means that while you may have white teeth, if they are crooked you may be overlooked by potential sex partners! When males are viewing females and when females are looking at females, teeth are one of the first areas of the body that they look at. Males think about instant attraction meanwhile women are sizing up their competition. Teeth are used to judge age, health, and (perhaps subconsciously) fertility. At our dental boutique and spa in South Florida, we feel that white teeth are important as well.
Your White Smile Can Go a Long Way
White teeth can make a huge impact on your appearance and it can also affect your personal and professional relationships. A white smile can have a larger impact on your life than you could have imagined.
A white smile can make people think that you are-
- More attractive
- More well-educated
In fact, whiter teeth can make you look five to 10 years younger than you actually are! While you may not think that’s a lot, when you compare it to a facelift that can make people look only four to six years younger, it’s tremendous!
To further compare it to a facelift, this procedure won’t increase how attractive you are at all. It will simply tighten your wrinkles and eliminate fine lines. On the other hand, teeth whitening can increase your attractiveness by a lot. Yellow teeth and bad breath are one of the top concerns for those who are dating. These two issues beat out bad hair and bald spots as concerns with appearances when looking at potential partners.
If you want to look wealthier, the first thing you need to do is whiten your teeth. People assume that those with pearly white teeth make more money than those with yellow teeth. Furthermore, people with white teeth are more employable than those with dull, yellowish teeth.
Your Teeth can Impact Your Life
Your appearance can have a lot to do with your success financially, professionally, and personally. A study that was recently conducted showed that whiter teeth can lead to improved relationships and employment. You can read more about this study by clicking here.
