What Your Teeth Show about You

What Your Teeth Show about You

Your smile reveals quite a bit about yourself. It tells others whether or not you are happy, but it also communicates critical information about your age, health, and overall wellbeing. A bright, big Hollywood smile is correlated with a higher socioeconomic status and confidence, while a damaged, discolored smile is more strongly associated with age and a lack of confidence. The shape of teeth can also provide bits of information about a person’s personality. Pointed or rounded canine teeth, for example, can sometimes give the impression of an aggressive or passive personality.


What is your smile saying about you? If teeth grinding has worn your teeth down, you might look angry, stressed, anxious, or aggressive. Over time, teeth grinding can also have serious effects on your dental health, including the development of headaches, jaw pain, and TMJ. Stains are common in many smiles. Many older people have stains simply from the passage of time, but younger people are not immune, particularly if their diet is high in coffee, cola, wine, or tea. Their teeth can be yellow or brown, adding five or more years to their appearance.


Cosmetic dental care gives you the tools to change the messages your smile is sending. Teeth whitening can erase those stains, and dental bonding or veneers can cover the chips and cracks that mar your teeth. Orthodontic treatment can straighten your teeth and close gaps, while a properly fitted mouth guard can halt the damage of grinding.
