Everyone wants the whitest teeth that they can have. Most of us just want a better looking smile so that we can dazzle the camera when we take pictures. Now, however, there may be another motivating factor to getting a whiter smile besides the personal joy that a better looking smile will bring. According to a recent poll, more than half of the people surveyed believed that a person’s friendliness is determined by their smile. So, according to this survey, if you have a missing tooth or teeth and the teeth you do have are yellow, you might be perceived as being unfriendly by more than 50% of people. That seems a little unfair, but don’t despair. You can fix both the whiteness of your teeth and the fact that you may have some teeth missing. To fix the whiteness of your teeth, you can get your teeth whitened professionally or you can buy one of those teeth whitening kits and do it your own. Either way, it is a step towards a brighter looking smile that may make you seem more friendly and approachable to others. Finally, if you have a missing tooth or teeth, you can get tooth implants. There is no reason that you have to contend with missing teeth anymore. In the past, there were not many options available when it came to missing teeth. Nowadays, however, dental implants can really make a difference in the way a person’s smile looks. You might be surprised at the difference that it makes when you have a better, brighter smile.
