Quick—name one celebrity that has stained or discolored teeth. Can’t think of one, can you? The truth is that teeth whitening is one of the quickest ways to improve you image and that often leads to more successes in life. Not convinced? Here are three studies that show the impact that teeth whitening done at a dentistry office can have on people’s lives.
Study #1: You’re More Likely to Be Hired
In a study conducted by Kelton Research, eight people underwent two job interviews. One interview was conducted before the teeth whitening procedure and the second one was conducted after the procedure. The people giving the interviews either worked in human resources or another similar job. The study showed that once the participants had their teeth whitened, they were 58 percent more likely to be hired, and 53 percent more likely to be offered a higher salary. They were seen as more professional, outgoing and confident in themselves.
Study #2: Your Love Life Will Improve
In the same study, the participants were sent on dates both before the teeth whitening procedure and after it. Over half of the participants who dated the study participants after the teeth whitening were interested in more dates with the person. Again, they found traits in them that weren’t found pre-whitening. On the other hand, another study done by a major online service showed that a large percentage of people would not consider dating someone will bad teeth.
Study #3: People Will See You in a More Positive Light
Another study sent a survey to 1006 people of all different backgrounds. They were shown photos of two people—one with white teeth and the other with strained or discolored teeth. The survey takers assigned positive attributes to the people with white teeth, even though they knew nothing about them. They said that they believed the people with white smiles were trustworthy, had professional success and were financially successful.
