Portrait of a smiling woman.jpegDid you know your smile or lack thereof could cost you financially? Attractive men and women get paid an average of somewhere between 4% and 14% more than their less attractive co-workers who hold the same positions or titles?

Is your smile catching eyes for all the right reasons or all the wrong reasons? People will notice your smile no matter what. They’ll notice you hide it behind your hand. They will see your half smile and wonder if you are being disingenuous or wonder if your are hiding something. Or maybe they will see your smile light up your face and your beautiful personality shine through.

Time for some self evaluation! Grab a pen, get to a mirror and shine a bright light on those teeth. Now as you look over your teeth start going over the checklist below so you can see just where your smile factor stands.

Smile Checklist

  • Look closely at the color of your teeth. Are they dark or stained?
  • Are your teeth worn?
  • Do they have rough, jagged edges?
  • Do they look too short?
  • Are they shaped improperly or asymmetrically?
  • Do you have old fillings ugly-ing up your mouth?
  • Are there gaps between your teeth?
  • Do you have missing teeth?
  • Do your gums show too much?
  • Do your teeth look too big or too small?
  • Do you have dark fillings in the side teeth that look grey, or worse, black when you smile? This can be a little tricky. You may have to turn to the side and actually use a second mirror so you can see your side smile. This is the smile that most smile owners miss, but others see..
  • Do you have replacement teeth that look natural or are they too fake - too white or too dark? Do you have various shades of teeth so your mouth looks like a patchwork quilt?
  • Do your teeth feel uncomfortable or painful?
  • Do you struggle to chew certain foods without pain or embarrassment?
