Can bad teeth harm your career?

bad teeth will harm your career

We’re all aware that first impressions matter, and when it comes to your career, the image you put across is crucial to your success. It might seem superficial, but there’s no denying the facts. 

One study by Bupa showed that 67% of people asked in the UK said that a nice smile is very important in the workplace. The research also showed that it can affect relationships on the job. Over half noted that a smile from their boss kept them motivated.

So, do bad teeth mean your job prospects are at risk?

It appears they do. If we look at the same study, it showed that unhealthy teeth tainted your chances of being employed. Perhaps this is because many feel less confident and aren’t as likely to smile or show off their pearly whites. 

A whopping 42% were actually distracted at the office when a coworker had bad teeth. This clearly indicates that your teeth and smile can affect your career, whether we like it or not. 

With a clean set of straight teeth, employers and colleagues see you as trustworthy and more approachable.

What can you do?

The great thing is, it’s not too late. Whatever the state of your teeth, they can be fixed. There are many methods dentists and orthodontists use to improve your smile. Proper oral health not only boosts your job prospects but also benefits your overall health in a number of ways, including:

  • Lower risk of heart disease
  • Preserves memory
  • Inflammation and infection risk reduced
  • Maintains good blood pressure in patients with diabetes

Here are a few of the most common treatments to help you regain that bright white toothy grin you once had.

Teeth cleaning – Removes plaque build up keeping your gums healthy and reducing the risk of gum disease  

Teeth whitening – Can brighten your teeth by several shades

Braces – Align and straighten your teeth

Invisalign – A clear, removable, comfortable alternative to using metal braces

Veneers – Thin porcelain veneers are customized in a lab and placed over your teeth to improve the shape, size, colour and overall appearance of your smile
