The survey conducted in Briton showed that when dating, both men and women placed a higher importance on a person’s smile than they did on the how they look in a bathing suit. And not only is the smile important in our dating lives it is also important to our careers.

According the Female First, 75 percent of survey respondents agreed that a stellar smile was most important when choosing a love interest. For a quarter, crooked teeth were a turn-off and would stop them from a dating a person. That’s because to most people your smile, the appearance of your teeth are reflective of pride you take in your appearance, at least that’s how 50 percent felt.

Not only did a fantastic smile help a person on the dating front, but it was also a boost to your career.  Looks did mean everything to the respondents, with the majority saying that straight teeth were a sign of wealth and success, signaling that an individual has a good job.

Judi James, a behavioral psychologist explained why the smile is so important to Female First UK, “The great thing about people having the confidence to smile is the natural impulse in the receiving person to return the smile. This instantaneous reaction often triggers a dramatic effect on our own mood, creating a sense of well-being.”

James added, “The outward performance of happiness and well-being produces a similar effect on our subconscious – by echoing a smile, it can give us a boost in confidence and cheer us up.”

The gist of the study is; if you want to have a successful love life and a fruitful career you need a nice smile and straight teeth. As with any part or portion of the human body, not all people are blessed to have perfectly straight teeth, sometimes because of a birth defect or injury.  Many people have a cleft lip or palate or both. Others are have overbites or under bites that cannot easily corrected with braces.
