When it comes to getting the job, first impressions count -- and your smile is no exception! A beautiful smile can increase your confidence and give you an advantage over other applicants. 1-800-DENTIST offers some tips on how to prepare your smile for the big interview:

1. Maintain your oral health at home. Simple things like brushing and flossing can really make a difference in your smile. Not only does practicing oral hygiene help ward off cavities, but it can clear up offensive bad breath.


2. Get a checkup. Dental checkups and cleanings are a necessary part of your dental care regimen. Dental problems found early are often easier and less expensive to fix, so be sure to visit your dentist regularly.

3. Correct any dental problems. Unsightly dental problems may lead to the assumption that you don't take care of yourself. Besides, you don't want to risk calling out sick to your new job because you're in desperate need of toothache remedies.

4. Get a smile makeover. If you really want to impress your potential boss, try a cosmetic dental procedure, such as teeth whitening, dental bonding or veneers.


5. Straighten crooked teeth. Wearing dental braces may not feel very professional, but the results are definitely worth it. If you're still hesitant, consider Invisalign®, which consists of clear, removable aligners that you can take out for the interview.


6. Smile -- no matter what! When you're unhappy with your smile, it shows. Hiding your teeth out of embarrassment may be interpreted as being unfriendly or standoffish.
