The results indicated that an attractive smile does have broad ranging benefits:
|Characteristic Average||“Before” rating||“After” rating||Increase|
|Successful in their career||5.8||6.7||.9|
|Popular with the opposite sex||5.0||6.2||1.2|
|Sensitive to other people||5.6||6.1||.5|
“Based on a lot of interaction with happy patients, we were expecting this type of difference in attractiveness and popularity with the opposite sex,” said Dr. Marty Zase, President of AACD, “but to have large gains in how successful, intelligent, interesting and wealthy patients appeared after cosmetic dentistry caught even us by surprise. We’ve been telling people that a beautiful smile was a great investment in their futures. Now we have independent evidence.”
While the change was most dramatic for Attractive, Popular with the opposite sex, Wealthy and Successful in their career, the change was statically significant in all areas.
