Almost every job requires a bit of face-to-face interaction. And your smile is the first thing others notice about you. Unfortunately, this could inadvertently lead to a misconception of who you are and could affect your career. Everyone at our Memphis dental office would like to talk a bit about the unfortunate truth about what your smile may be saying about you.
It’s Not All About the Resume
When we apply for a jobs, we’d like to be taken seriously and let our resumes do the talking. However, no matter how good you look on paper, the reality is when you’re brought in for a face-to-face interview, the interviewee subconsciously makes judgements based on how you look. While this sounds incredibly shallow, it’s true.
Your Smile Says A Lot
Research has shown that nearly 75% of Americans trust those with a great smile over someone who wears expensive clothes or drives a luxury car. When we’re talking about a job, trust is one of the top qualities employers look for. Even more, about three quarters of all Americans believe an unattractive smile can negatively affect professional advancement.
What You Can Do
If you’ve been hiding your smile or have been embarrassed by how it looks, your dentist in Memphis can help. There are tons of options that can transform your grin and boost your confidence, both personally and professionally. Smile enhancing treatments include:
- Tooth whitening to quickly and easily take a dull or discolored smile and make it bright, white, and dazzling.
- Veneers to fix minor imperfections like tooth shape, size, and color.
- Implants to replace a missing tooth or teeth. Since this option replaces the tooth and the roots, it’s a permanent way to get you back to smiling with confidence.
- Tooth-colored fillings designed to custom-match your teeth so they’re virtually undetectable compared to the other option of metal, amalgam fillings.
