Most people know that healthy teeth are a must to prevent dental problems that may contribute to other health issues. Straight teeth may also boost mental health as research has indicated that individuals with the most perfect looking of smiles are thought to be happier, healthier and smarter.
For the past few years, 1800Dentist.com has been reporting on various trends in cosmetic surgery, and the last thing people were looking for were perfect looking teeth. As a matter of fact, current trends in cosmetic dentistry focus in on teeth that are less than perfect; individuals are paying big money to get details such as diastema, vampire fangs, crooked dental veneers and even diamond encrusted grills. There is no arguing that those tweaks can help a person look unique, but research has shown that the average guy or gal are better off with traditionally attractive smiles and the benefits associated with them.
Money cannot by happiness but it can help finance trips to the dentist for professional dental care. In turn, that can not only improve dental health, but will allow people to buy the smile they always dreamed of and if it happens to be one filled with straight teeth, they will be perceived as being happier by those who surround them.
The findings have come courtesy of Kelton Research, a marketing research company contracted by Invisalign to analyze the subject. The organization analyzed the responses on over 1,000 questionnaires that depicted images with people with a variety of smiles and teeth; the models with the straightest teeth were thought to have had more positive attributes (such as having love, happiness and wealth) than the models who had crooked teeth (http://www.dental-tribune.com/articles/content/scope/news/region/usa/id/8133).
Straight Teeth=Career Opportunities
Beauty is linked to the perception of others and how they see you; the Kelton Research has proved that. This research also backs the sad practice of hiring managers favoring the most attractive candidate (with all other factors being equal).
