We all know looks matter. It plays a huge role when we make judgements about potential romantic partners. The appearance of your teeth is very important when it comes to dating, as it contributes to your overall physical attractiveness. This goes for both men and women, and a 2013 study showed that the majority of people care the most about teeth in dating. Here we explore in more detail the importance of good teeth when finding a partner.
The study was carried out by match.com. They surveyed 5,500 unmatched people on the site and it was found that straight, white teeth was the most important characteristic. 60% of men claimed they care the most about teeth for a potential date, compared to 71% of women who said the same thing.
A good smile
Good teeth play a huge role in the look of a person’s smile. A great smile can mean so much and people who try to hide their smile can give off a bad vibe. This doesn’t just apply to the dating world, but life in general. Your teeth don’t need to be Hollywood perfect, but a good set of teeth ensures for a nice smile, which projects a positive attitude and makes you look more attractive.
First impressions count
First impressions really are everything. Studies have shown that people with straight teeth are perceived as more successful and happier. We also trust people more if they take care of their teeth and it makes them more approachable. Good teeth are a clear sign that a potential date cares about their appearance and hygiene.
There are transparent braces for adults who want to straighten their teeth without people knowing they’re in treatment. Clear aligners straighten teeth like metal braces, but they have no screws or brackets, and can be removed.
