What Your Smile Says About Your Selfies

Makhoul Dentistry Serving Mission Viejo & Laguna Niguel, CA


When you smile, do you proudly beam your pearly whites or are you more prone to keep lips tight, hiding cosmetic flaws that you feel embarrassed by? If it’s the latter, you are not alone, but your smile may be impacting your ability to succeed – both in life and in love.

Numerous studies have shown that people with attractive smiles are more likely to get hired, to be promoted, and to find success in business. Similar studies have found that social and love lives are enhanced when smiles are attractive. It’s true: if you want to be swiped right, you may need to perfect your smile first. Not only is it among the first things people notice about you, it helps them determine if you are worth talking to at all.

Perhaps much of this has to do with findings from a study conducted by the National Institutes of Health in which various markers indicated that people with attractive smiles are seen as more trustworthy. We make constant judgments, often based on just one glance, that are informed by factors we may not even be conscious of. Among these, most certainly, are subconscious judgments made about the perceived attractiveness of other people’s smiles.
