These days, CEOs aren’t fretting over their fine lines, but are more interested in the state of their smile. Business executives, both men and women, are paying more attention to their teeth, the main reason being for professional reasons – seeking a job or advancement in their careers.
When you interact with someone, one of the first things they see is your mouth. If what we see is attractive, first impressions are positive, and vice versa. And if you have stained, missing or crooked teeth, people may be making incorrect assumptions about your abilities and personality.
Fortunately, you can address these issues and take control of how people see you.
So, what are the benefits of an Executive Smile Makeover?
- A healthy mouth. And most likely better overall health that communicates you know how to take care of yourself…and your work, customers, co-workers…etc. Caveman tactics need not apply in business.
- Improved self-confidence; with the opposite sex or with your colleagues and customers, either way is good, we’re sure you’d agree.
- More visually appealing first impressions. Anchorman smile or snaggletooth? Either way it’s a memorable first impression and first impressions count in the business world.
- A great smile disarms people, that’s a good thing in business – yes?
Forbes asked the question and Executive Smile Makeovers were a prominent feature.
Not only do office politics and “wasta” matter, but it’s been proven that even superficial factors like our appearance can affect our careers, regardless of gender. And the element of your appearance that has the biggest influence over how you’re seen is your smile. Yes, your teeth affect your career success. Having a smile you can be proud of gives you the self-confidence you need to succeed in the business world. The answer? Cosmetic Dentistry.
One great thing about Cosmetic Dentistry is the ability to make each procedure individual and customized for every patient. A customized smile makeover is possible because of recent advancements in dentist technique and smile design, materials used, and state-of-the-art dental technology.
Smiling is an easy way to instantly improve the way others see you, but if you’re self-conscious about your smile, that’s easier said than done. It may be worth it to consider treatments that can elevate your confidence, like whitening, orthodontics and even removing the metal from your mouth and replacing old fillings with tooth colored fillings which are natural in both looks and function. Consider it an investment in your future success.
While people may be willing to overlook a crooked smile, it’s pretty hard to ignore bad breath. If you suffer from halitosis, it’s possible that people are avoiding working with you or even talking about you behind your back, which would definitely impact your professional success.
You should know that the causes of bad breath can be anything from poor oral hygiene to the foods you eat to a health issue like a sinus infection or acid reflux. Once you identify the cause, you can seek the appropriate remedy.
The first thing to do, though, is to make sure that you’re brushing at least twice a day (including your tongue), flossing once a day, and staying hydrated. And don’t forget simple remedies like sugar-free gum and mouthwash to avoid having your breath damage your reputation in the workplace.
Just don’t forget to include the health and appearance of your smile, which can help you make the best impression possible in every board room, meeting or conference you enter.
