Humans are social creatures. We are constantly looking at other people’s body language and nonverbal cues for clues about their character and how they are feeling. Smiling is one of the ways humans communicate friendship, happiness, and confidence. If you are hiding your teeth because you are embarrassed by the way they look, you may be sending the wrong signal to other people.
People may believe that you are angry or sad. They may believe that you are not friendly or helpful. You could also be sending the message that you are timid or weak, even if that is not the case.
Recent research suggests that not smiling as much could actually affect your mood. You really may not be as happy as you could be if you smiled more.
When you are a professional, a key part of your job is bonding with other people. If others find you distant or unsure of yourself, you will have a harder time doing your job. You may make fewer sales, get passed over for promotions or projects, and your results may fall below what your skills are capable of delivering.
When you have your teeth whitened you will find that smile more. This simple act can have huge consequences for your personal and professional life.
Smiling more with whiter teeth will make you more confident. You will feel more confident and that confidence will be reflected in your face and body language. People will notice. When others perceive you as confident they will trust you more and want to be around you more. Confident salespeople who smile make more sales.
Having a beautiful smile will also make you more attractive. This can not only help you in your personal life, but it can also help you professionally. People will want to be around you. Your bright smile will attract positive attention and give you more opportunities to show what you are capable of.
Often when people are ashamed of their smile they don’t talk as much. In the work world this can keep you from communicating your great ideas and get in the way of you rising to the top of your organization. If you have a nice bright smile, you are more likely to share your great ideas. You are more likely to make connections with others by chatting at the office or on business calls.
