In today’s society we are judged by our appearance, the beautiful people seem to get all the breaks. Right or wrong, it is a not so pretty fact of life in the modern world. Psychologists and sociologists have known for many years that a prevalent perception shared by most people is that attractive people are more competent and intelligent, as well as possessing many other desirable characteristics.
Both men and women are more concerned than ever with perceived imperfections in their appearance, especially their smiles. Every decade has a “must have” look, and the look of this decade is the stunning smile. This desire for perfect smiles is fueled by the smiles in movies and on TV, white, symmetrical, and flawless, known as the “Hollywood” smile. The fame and fortunes of the Hollywood elite seem to enforce the perception that beautiful people get preferential treatment.
A study was conducted by Kelton Research in 2007 in LA. The results indicated that subjects with appealing smiles are more likely to be hired after a job interview and are more prone to receive pay raises. The study also found that nicer smiles enhanced the social lives of the subjects. People saw them as more intelligent, professional, and trustworthy. They had an increased interest in dating and their dating prospects were better.
If you see flaws in your smile, don’t despair, Dr. Ami Shah, and associates create Hollywood smiles through cosmetic dentistry techniques such as teeth whitening and porcelain veneers. There are many gorgeous smiles in Norco, Eastvale, Corona, Mira Loma, Fontana, and Chino Hills thanks to the team at Absolute Dental practice.
Porcelain veneers are one of the most aesthetic ways to change your smile dramatically. They can change the size, shape, color, and position (within reason) of teeth. They require minimal tooth preparation, making them a much more conservative option than a dental crown. The porcelain mimics natural tooth enamel in color, translucency, and light refraction, resulting in a natural looking smile, no one will ever guess you have had a smile enhancement.
