The Importance of Smiles and How Veneers from a Dentist Solve Problems

Despite some trends that surface in social media nowadays, it’s still the smile that most people notice and care about. A dazzling set of evenly-shaped ivories can go a long way.

The Relevance of Smiles

The results of a survey by the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry (AACD) show that most people place a high value on a person’s smile. First off, almost all adults (99.7 percent) believe that a smile is a valuable social asset. On the other hand, 96 percent believe that an attractive smile enhances a person’s appeal to the opposite sex. Meanwhile, about 74 percent thinks that an unattractive smile negatively affects career success.

The AACD is not alone in these conclusions. Many other studies and surveys present similar findings, like more people associating good personality with straight teeth, good smiles improving social lives, and crooked teeth reducing confidence.
