Why Your Smile is Just as Important as Your Six Pack

You probably see it all the time: buff guys and girls in the gym, lifting impossibly heavy weights, sweating, grunting, and periodically flexing their muscles in the mirror. Or the fit, flexible, fierce cardio junkies shuffling from Zumba to kickboxing to Pilates, all in the pursuit of a leaner, tighter, and let’s face it – hotter – body. But occasionally, one of these dedicated gym-goers will flash a smile, and something doesn’t quite add up: their teeth are stained, crooked, and generally incongruent with their otherwise picture-perfect physiques.

 It doesn’t make sense: if you’re busting your butt (and legs and arms and abs, etc.) trying to achieve an attractive appearance, why are you letting your teeth fall by the wayside? After all, an unattractive smile sabotages all your efforts to look sexy.

 Science even proves this: a study conducted by Oral-B found that white teeth can make you appear five years younger and boost your attractiveness by 20 percent, and a survey by Match.com found that 60% of men and 71% of women prioritize nice teeth when looking for a potential date.

 So what makes for a gorgeous grin? According to one study, white evenly spaced teeth are the ultimate turn-on because – from an evolutionary standpoint – that kind of smile is perceived as a sign of good health and quality genes. And while you may not be ready to be perceived as a high-quality mate, or you’re already in a committed relationship, beautiful, strong teeth are important, and they arguably matter just as much, if not more, than your six-pack abs.

 If you’re ready to take your smile to the next level, it’s time to look into some restorative and cosmetic services. Whether you need fillings, bridges, crowns, Invisalign, or ZOOM!
