Smiles of babies and toddlers are all beautiful. Adult smiles, however, are not always described as such. Actually, very few people feel their smile is “beautiful”.
As adults age, crowding can lead to a smile of crooked or “jumbled” teeth. The aging process can also result in the discoloration of teeth. And, over time, wear and tear on teeth can cause chips, breaks, or lost teeth.
Feeling self-conscious about the appearance of a smile is fairly common.
According to findings shared in a PR Newswire report, more than a third of American adults are unhappy with their smile. The study, commissioned by the American Association of Orthodontists (AAO), shared that 36 percent also feel their social life would be better if they had a more appealing smile.
Not only is a smile the first thing many people notice when meeting someone new, but a flattering smile can send messages to others. For instance, 77 percent of females in the study felt that a date with crooked teeth was less appealing than men with receding hairlines. The study also found that 78 percent of Americans perceive adults with crooked teeth to be unsuccessful.
The advantages of a beautiful smile go far beyond perceptions, however. Studies have shown that smiling can boost your mood, even if you smile when you don’t feel like it. Too, people who smile often can even extend their lifespans by up to 10 years, on average.
Alas, few people emerge into adulthood sporting a naturally beautiful smile. Unfortunately, it doesn’t take much to detract from the appearance of a smile and, therefore, the confidence to share it.
