Whether we like to admit it, we live in a society where looks are important, though of course — and thankfully — not the only factor. Making a good first impression can often affect the opportunities we subsequently get, both in our professional and personal lives. If you want to put your best foot forward, starting with your smile is often a good approach. Maintaining a healthy and beautiful smile can boost our internal self-esteem, while projecting confidence to the outside world.
According to a recent study of 1,000 Americans, the majority — 72 percent of respondents — said that people with healthy and straight teeth are typically treated better in social situations than those who have crooked teeth.
Mark Montano, host of TLC's, "10 Years Younger", affirms this, stating:
"We live in a very image-conscious society and impressions are made within a few seconds. Straightening teeth makes a difference and can ultimately make or break your chances of getting certain opportunities."
If you want to feel better about the way you look by improving your smile, there are steps you can take. The first is to schedule an appointment with an experienced orthodontist.
