With so many people either out of work or looking for a better job, there has never been a better time to increase your face value. Many studies have shown that first impressions are a vital part of building successful social and professional relationships. Too often men and women focus their attention on maintaining their hair, skin and wardrobe while overlooking the importance of their smile.
A poll by the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry recently found that 74% of Americans believe that an unattractive smile can harm a person's chances of career success. You don't have to be beautiful or look handsome but if you have an engaging smile, people will recognize how happy and optimistic you look.
Dr. Ronald Goldstein, author of the popular book Change Your Smile, offers this tip to anyone considering cosmetic dentistry: "Don't look for budget dentistry. Look for the best procedure done. This is a health service that can improve your self-image. You should look at your smile and ask, 'Is this the best my smile can be?' Because if it isn't. then you may not be getting the most out of life."
