Smile the first thing they see
When it comes to making a positive first impression at work or in personal relationships, nothing comes close to the impact of an attractive smile, according to a new survey conducted by Kelton Global on behalf of the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry.
Forty-eight percent of Americans believe that a smile is the most memorable feature after first meeting someone – more so than the first thing a person says (25%), the way they dress (9%) or the way they smell (8%). Adults 50+ are even more likely than their 18-49 year old counterparts (52% vs. 45%) to remember a smile when first introduced to someone. The survey also showed that some Americans view people with crooked or stained teeth as less attractive (37%) and less confident (25%) than those with perfect teeth. More women than men (40% vs. 35%) say that an imperfect smile makes someone less appealing.
