According to Psychology Today, “confidence is the most important psychological contributor to performance in the business world.” So, if you find yourself feeling self-conscious about your smile during business meetings and presentations, it could negatively impact the success of your career. Fortunately, patients today don’t have to go through years of treatment with metal braces, rubber bands, and headgear to achieve a beautiful smile. Instead, Invisalign offers clear aligners that are as effective as they are undetectable! Here are three professions that could benefit from Invisalign in Jacksonville.
According to Forbes, people do business with people they like. While personality and appearance do play a role in making a strong first impression, 33% of Americans said that teeth are the first thing they notice about someone. Also, human beings’ natural inclination to mirror those around them can inspire more than just action, but emotion as well. Therefore, when you smile with clients, they associate positive, happy emotions with being around you. Therefore, sales start with smiles!
For performers, captivating an audience and drawing them in is crucial. In fact, some of the most successful entertainers are those whose smiles have gained just as much attention as their talent (i.e., Julia Roberts, Sarah Jessica Parker, etc.). Fortunately, Invisalign allows you to achieve an equally as beautiful smile with virtually invisible treatment! This allows you to bypass “metal mouth,” which can negatively impact your confidence and take away from the character you are playing.
For entrepreneurs, getting their brand off the ground is an immense undertaking. It requires an immense presence both on and offline that inspires people to invest in your vision. Whether you are looking for investors, networking in person, or building your online profile, having a beautifully straight smile can help you succeed. In fact, those who smiled more were perceived as trustworthy and competent!
5 Reasons Professionals Pick Invisalign
One of the immense benefits of Invisalign is that it seamlessly fits into your lifestyle. So whether you are rushing from meeting to meeting, are booked with back-to-back zoom calls, or have a jam-packed travel schedule, you can still get the virtually invisible treatment you need. In fact, professionals love that:
- The clear trays can be removed for presentations, work dinners, and professional photos.
- There are no food restrictions. So whether you are on the go or eating at home, you don’t have to worry about what you can and cannot eat.
- Practicing proper oral care isn’t difficult since the trays can be removed to brush and floss.
- The smooth aligners don’t irritate your gums like the wires and brackets of traditional braces do.
- There are fewer visits to the dentist. Every four to six weeks you will have a quick appointment to check your progress and provide you with the next set of aligners.
With Invisalign’s virtually invisible, fast, effective treatment, professionals in every occupation can achieve the smile of their dreams. It may even help make your career goals come true as well!
