The Social Science Behind Cosmetic Dentistry
Surprising Research Results:
When participants in a 2008 independent survey had been questioned, “Precisely what would you most want to improve about your own smile?” The most typical answer was: “Brighter & Whiter Teeth”.
When questioned, “What sorts of things do you think make a smile unattractive?” The most typical responses were:
- Discolored, Yellow, or Stained Teeth
- Missing Teeth
- Teeth That are Not Straight
- Rotting Teeth & Cavities
- Gaps & Spaces in Teeth
- Unbrushed Teeth
Practically all Americans (98.7%) think a smile is a vital social asset.
97% of adults think an attractive smile really makes a person more appealing to those of the opposite sex.
Three-quarters (76%) of adults truly feel an unappealing smile can easily damage a person’s odds for job success.
For better or worse, appearances are critical these days.
According to further studies by poll takers in and around North Kansas City, many people take around three seconds evaluating your appearance before they start to create a list of perceptions about your:
- academic level
- job competence
- society standing
- personal mores
As expected, your smile is likely your most powerful attribute.
