Teeth serve a very important function in our lives as they provide a way to both bite and chew food. They are also the main component of an open mouthed smile. The composition of your teeth can also have other effects that go beyond causing issues with your mouth development (ex: overbites, etc.). Beauty is found from within but it’s the exterior that always seems to get the most attention and criticism.
“A survey has revealed that 67 per cent of people would be put off a second date if the other person was cursed with a dodgy set of less-than-pearly-whites. The survey also revealed that teeth are a bigger deal for women than men, with 76 per cent of us saying a second date would be a non-starter as compared with 57 per cent of men. Some slightly odder conclusions from the survey include the fact that four per cent of us link straight teeth to intelligence while 12 per cent of us think they somehow demonstrate popularity.”
Obviously the stats from this survey are based on the people who took part in it and is up for interpretation and further analysis, but it does bring to light some interesting points. Being your best self has a lot to do with how comfortable you are in your own skin and your appearance. If you or someone you know is unhappy with how their teeth look it’s important to contact your Ottawa dentist to do something about it. They will be able to work closely with you to help create a smile that you can be proud of.
