If you’re like most people trying to make it in today’s competitive job market, you’ll undoubtedly already aware that the right look is an essential component of coming across as polished and professional — and you probably also know that even the best educational credentials won’t matter to prospective employees if you don’t present the right image. For instance, you’ve probably got at least one interview suit in your closet for the purpose of impressing potential employers during job interviews. However, even the most polished, professional appearance can be diminished significantly if your smile isn’t up to par. Following are just three ways that cosmetic dentistry can help you put your best face forward when it comes to applying for jobs and otherwise functioning in the professional sphere.
Dingy, stained teeth never make a good impression. Your dentist can advise you on which teeth whitening strategy best suits your individual needs and preferences as well as recommend strategies designed to keep your teeth from becoming stained in the first place. For instance, certain types of foods and beverages, such as blueberries, coffee, and red wine, should be avoided by those whose teeth stain easily.
Many adults who struggle with crooked teeth don’t like the thought of getting traditional braces because of how they look — after all, it’s hard to present yourself as a professional when you’ve got a mouthful of metal like a middle school student. Fortunately, options exist in the form of clear braces that are so discreet that it will be hard for others to tell that you’re wearing braces at all. You can even remove them for important meetings and events.
Caps and Crowns
Teeth that are chipped, broken, or stained to the extent that whitening treatments won’t help don’t have to hold you back professionally — talk to your dentist about caps and crowns. These are bonded to the teeth using a special type of cement made for dental use, and today’s caps and crowns have such a realistic appearance that no one will even know they aren’t your real teeth.
