When a Bad Smile Threatens Your Livelihood

Erstwhile character actor Steve Buscemi has become a leading man in HBO’s Boardwalk Empire. While his less-than-perfect smile may keep him employed as a 1920s politician and cheat on cable TV, sporting a set of stained, crooked teeth might actually be preventing you from getting ahead in your field.

Imperfections have their place, but an imperfect smile can be a detriment to your self-confidence, your relationships, your overall outlook on life, and especially your career. Did you know that 74 percent of Americans believe that crooked teeth and an unattractive smile can hurt your career success and your everyday social life?

Even in this mobile-to-mobile age, face-to-face meetings still happen, and that first impression is crucial. Will you impress a potential client, partner, or customer with a gleaming perfect smile?

Or will they remember you as the person with a constant grimace, the person who was judging them with closed-lipped smirks, or the person who just wasn’t happy?

Your teeth can truly affect your livelihood, especially if you’re in a business like sales, real estate, or customer service where you have multiple daily interactions with different individuals and colleagues. Don’t let gum disease or broken-down teeth keep you from the dentist.

Restorative dentistry can give you that white smile you’ve always wanted by replacing old crowns or remedying missing, broken, or chipped teeth through porcelain crowns and bridges. Invisible braces can help you get a straight smile practically without anyone ever noticing. Porcelain veneers and cerinate lumineers are solutions for fast, beautiful fixes to your smile.
