Another new year is upon us. It’s so hard to keep ourselves contained at the exciting prospects it contains. We all have visions of where we want to be at the end of next year. But how will you achieve your goals? One thing that could definitely help you achieve them next year is a better smile. Here’s how a smile makeover could help you achieve your goals this year.
A Better Job
Whether you’re thinking of staying at the same company or looking for a new place to work, many of us are looking to improve our work situation this year. And a new smile can definitely help you achieve this goal this year.
Hiring managers have repeatedly stated that they are more likely to hire people with more attractive smiles–and more likely to offer a higher starting salary. That’s because people with a more attractive smile are perceived as more intelligent and more successful. And, of course, we can’t neglect the role of confidence in your smile.
If you’re looking to get promoted at your current job, a new smile can help, too. If you’re currently hiding your smile because you’re unhappy with the appearance, supervisors may perceive this as not getting along with coworkers, who, indeed, might misinterpret your expression as hostility or reluctance to help. Your lack of confidence in your smile may also bleed over into other areas, impacting perception of you and your performance.
Whether you’re recovering from a heartbreak or trying to find your first big love, it’s impossible to overstate the importance of a smile in starting a new relationship. When you meet someone new, it’s likely your smile that they notice first, and that’s what they are most likely to remember from a first meeting. In addition, a smile is what most people are looking for in a potential date, whether they’re a man or a woman.
An attractive smile helps you look youthful and healthy, and it can have widespread impact on how you’re perceived. It also makes you look more compassionate, understanding, and sincere.
Having confidence in your smile also makes a big difference when you’re trying to find new love. If you lack confidence in your smile, you’re going to be less likely to smile or laugh on a date, which can make it hard to establish a positive relationship.
Your smile doesn’t just make you look healthier–it can help you be healthier. When you get rid of old restorations–including old dentures–that can make it hard to eat a variety of foods, you’ll be delighted to be able to enjoy many more healthy foods. Replacing missing teeth with dental implants can make the biggest difference, but even minor repairs can have a big impact on your chewing efficiency, which will make it easier to eat challenging foods, and easier to digest them.
Not only that, but healthy teeth that fit together properly can help you exercise more efficiently, helping you achieve your health goals.
Get a Great Start
If you’re looking at your goals for the year and realizing that a new smile could help you achieve them, there’s no time like the present to start your smile makeover. Cosmetic dentistry can’t help if you just spend your time thinking about it and don’t ever commit.
