Are you on the hunt for a better-paying job to help keep up with the rising cost of living or looking forward to interviewing for an internal promotion? With countless other candidates with similar qualifications, it’s important to distinguish yourself from other interviewees. One of the best ways to make a lasting, professional impression on the person interviewing you is with a bright smile. Read on to learn about recent research that shows why whitening your teeth before the big day can help you not only land the job, but also a higher salary!

The Relationship Between Whiter Teeth & Professional Success

A three-part study conducted by Kelton Research had a group of participants whiten their teeth before going on simulated job interviews and first dates to determine the correlation between a brighter smile and success. Their results were astonishing, showing that 58 percent of participants were more likely to be hired for the job they interviewed for, and 53 percent received higher salary offers. This is predominantly due to the fact that they were perceived as being more professional and confident.

Professional vs. Store-Bought Teeth Whitening

If you want to cash-in on greater chances of success during your job or promotion interview, you’ll want to first determine whether you want to invest in store-bought or professional teeth whitening. While over-the-counter products may be less expensive, it’s more likely that you won’t be able to achieve the transformative and safe results that treatment from a cosmetic dentist can get you.

Many dental offices provide both take-home and in-office treatment, depending on your needs. Each option utilizes professional-grade ingredients that won’t erode your enamel, but can brighten your smile by between six and eight shades. Take-home kits offer results in as little as two weeks, while in-office treatment can be completed within an hour. As opposed to most store-bought whitening kits and strips, you’ll be monitored by a professional and won’t have to worry about any harm coming to your smile before your big day.

Added Benefits of a Brighter Smile

In addition to increasing your chances of professional success, having whiter teeth can help boost your self-esteem and mood, which can further impact your job and interview performance. Even though investing in your smile with teeth whitening may feel like one extra thing to worry about before crunch time, studies show that it’s well worthwhile!
