One of the first things that people often notice about each other is their smile. Having fresh breath and a healthy smile are some of the leading attributes that lovers look for in a new partner. It is also understood that people who have aesthetically pleasing teeth, that is to say straight and white, are considered to be more intelligent, more successful, and even more trustworthy.
Each and every relationship that a person has, be it social, romantic or business, may very well be affected by how a person perceives a smile, and what their unconscious first impressions are of it.
Someone who has confidence issues regarding the appearance of their teeth may find that their social lives have been impacted negatively. Even though positive self love is preached, there does come a time, for most people, where they understand the importance of making changes to improve their own feelings of self worth, as an individual’s smile may not only cause harm to their confidence, but interestingly, it can have negative impacts on their physical health and wellbeing as well.
How is this possible?
Teeth that are not aligned in the right way can be the cause of dental decay and bad breath. This is because teeth too close together, or crossing, are hard to clean, allowing debris and bacteria to take hold.
A misaligned bite can make it difficult for an individual to speak or eat properly, leaving their health at a disadvantage. If one cannot eat food properly, it is proven that their health will suffer.
What can be done about it?
Having straight teeth is highly desirable, however, many patients think that it is too difficult to straighten adult teeth to make it worthwhile. When a patient visits a cosmetic dentist in Harley Street, they will be pleased to learn that there are a number of suitable treatment options available that can be customised to suit their unique needs.
A unique and beautiful smile
The cause of bad teeth is largely unknown. Many individuals assume that poor teeth is due to inadequate dental care during childhood through to the present time. These assumptions are potentially the reason behind the unconscious judgements that people make during important first impressions of an individual.
