How a Damaged Smile Can Impact Your Future

Do you hate your smile because you have chipped or broken teeth? Maybe your teeth are stained. No matter what the reason is, if you’re embarrassed about your smile, it can do more than just make you self-conscious. Your damaged smile can actually impact your future in a few different, negative ways.

Social Situations

If you don’t want to smile when meeting someone new or when spending time with your friends, they may start to think you don’t like them. Some people may think you’re not very friendly or that you don’t like them, even if that’s not the case at all. If you do smile, people may notice your teeth, and while some may not care, others may ask you personal questions you don’t feel comfortable answering.

Your Employment

In an ideal world, getting a job will always involve being evaluated for your skills and knowledge, not your looks. However, the sad truth is that we don’t live in such a world, and many employers do judge you based on your appearance. This is especially true for jobs in customer service, television, and other positions that deal with the public. You may find that you get passed over for such jobs even if you’re incredibly qualified because you don’t have a perfect smile.

Your Relationships

Finally, just like employment, some people do base their relationships more about how you look than on who you are. They may find your damaged smile unappealing or may even be embarrassed to be seen with you. It’s not nice, and many would say it’s certainly not right, but unfortunately it is how some people are.
