What Is Your Smile Telling Others About You?

Posted on 11/10/2018 by Boeckel
What Is Your Smile Telling Others About You?You have heard that first impressions matter in personal relationships and they can also be critical in business. The way you appear to others, and your confidence shows through when you smile. That is what people will take away with them when they first meet you.

Today, people measure you in many ways, and your smile is one of the things by which others will judge you. If you think about from your perspective, you feel better about people who have beautiful, white teeth. Think about it, when someone's smile is genuine and open, you feel more comfortable around them, so others will think the same of you.

Your Smile is Important, Don't Neglect It

If your teeth are not white and perfectly aligned, you are probably self-conscious when you smile and talk. You might always be thinking that others are focused on your teeth and you are not relaxed, friendly and open.

Having bad teeth is associated with lack of education and poor habits. It may appear as if you don't take care of yourself. In an age where physical appearance is so important, having a bright, healthy smile can undoubtedly tell someone a lot about who you are.

Researchers studied a group of women from and found that those with genuine smiles, that reached their eyes, were happier in their marriages and professional lives 30-years later. The same study asked a group of strangers to give their opinions on photos from a college yearbook. They assumed that the people with bright smiles appeared more successful and confident.

The truth is that consciously or subconsciously, one of the first things you notice about a person is their smile and you will tend to feel more comfortable and open with those who have beautiful smiles and white teeth.
