Take a smiling selfie and we’ll show you what an Invisalign® treatment can do for your professional image.
How professional is your smile?
What does your smile say to potential clients when you first meet them? Or to your boss when you ask for a promotion or raise? Sending the wrong message with your smile can lead to missed opportunities! Your smile is the first thing people notice… and in the workplace, that can really matter!
Why does a professional smile matter?
Take another look at the image of the young woman… Did you notice that she’s missing an eyebrow?! Probably not, since it’s her beautiful smile that draws the eye.
According to a survey conducted by Kelton Global on behalf of the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, 48 percent of adults remember a smile above all else when meeting someone for the first time. In that same study, people with straight teeth were found 58 percent more likely to be successful and wealthy. And those with straight teeth were 45 percent more likely to get a job than someone with the same experience, but with crooked teeth.
Do you have a professional smile?
In the workplace, we’ve all gotten some version of this advice- When we prepare for an interview or big sales pitch we should arrive early, give a firm handshake, make eye contact, don’t slouch or fidget, etc etc… But most importantly, SMILE! But can you confidently smile when you have crooked teeth?
Some may answer “yes”, but consider how an overbite or gap in your teeth can influence the way others see you. That perception might influence your outcome when trying to close that deal or win that promotion. So whether we like it or not, our smiles definitely affect our lives!
Invisalign- A Clear Alternative to Traditional Tooth Straightening
So, what’s the solution to a crooked smile… traditional braces?! Probably not for most. Brackets on an adult can feel juvenile, which aspiring professionals might consider worse than living with crooked teeth.
Luckily, Invisalign offers professionals with a clear alternative to traditional teeth-straightening. The removable aligners are virtually invisible, easy to maintain, and require no food restrictions. This means that you can fix your smile gradually and discreetly without feeling self-conscious.
Invisalign aligners are fitted perfectly for your teeth to gradually move them over time. The aligners are changed periodically to continue the progress and are worn for a minimum of 22 hours a day, providing time to eat and brush your teeth and floss.
