Finding a new job and doing interviews can be very nerve-wracking. Most employers want to see that someone has confidence and is ready to take on the tasks of the job. If your smile is not the way you want it to be, you might find yourself smiling less during interviews or coming off as standoffish.

Having the perfect smile can help you ace job interviews because you will be radiating with confidence.
If you’re ready to get the perfect smile at our orthodontist in Hamilton Square, NJ, we here at Bordentown Braces are ready to help you get the smile you have always dreamed of.

Stress Alleviation

Attending a job interview can be stressful because you are not sure what questions they will ask and how you might respond to them. If you have the perfect smile, you will show your teeth and smile more often.

Since smiling boosts your mood by causing the release of serotonin and dopamine, you will find yourself less stressed at work because you smile more often.

Since most people experience stress in job interviews and the workplace after being hired, it’s important to keep a positive attitude and smile as often as you can while working.

Boost of Confidence

When you are confident in yourself, you are more likely to do better in a job interview because you will be more engaged with the interviewer. You will also feel more at ease talking to other employees or people you meet as you are waiting to be interviewed.

When you smile at the interviewer, you are also more likely to show a positive attitude which is much appreciated in the workplace. Since you will also be met with a smile from the interviewer in turn, this can boost your self-esteem and let you know you are on the right track with the interview.

Helps You Stand Out

Going to an interview and having to sit down with someone face-to-face can be very nerve-wracking. You have probably spent a lot of time preparing for the interview, and you want to do your absolute best.
When you are upbeat and smiling during the interview, the employer will remember you easily and make it more likely they will call you for a follow-up interview or with a job offer.

Smiling can make you more memorable compared to the competition, and it can allow you to make an amazing first impression.

Makes You More Approachable

In general, employers want workers that are friendly and approachable. When you are smiling at your coworkers and those who meet during the interview, the employer will for sure notice and see that you are approachable and likable.

This is especially important if you are interviewing for a customer service position. Those who are face-to-face with customers all day long need to show that they can be welcoming and friendly. When you are approachable, customers also feel like they can ask you questions.

Creates a Better Work Environment

Employers do not want to hire people that seem grumpy and angry all the time. When you have the perfect smile, you will be able to show the interviewer that you can smile and make the work environment more positive.

They will also know that your positivity can rub off on others, which means the overall work will be better and more positive.

Flashing your pearly whites to coworkers can also help you form better relationships with them, which can allow the workplace to function more as a team which means tasks and duties will get done easier.

Improving Your Smile

If you have read all the benefits above but feel like you are not really able to take advantage of all of them, it might be because you feel like you do not have the perfect smile. So, what can you do to get the best smile possible?

Get Regular Cleanings

One of the best ways to get rid of bacteria and plaque on your teeth and in your gums is to get regular dental cleanings. We recommend you get them twice a year or about every 6 months. You should also get x-rays once a year so that the dentist can see the roots of your teeth and ensure everything looks healthy.

Practice Good Oral Hygiene

Even if you go to the dentist twice a year, you still need to practice good oral hygiene at home in between dental visits. This includes brushing your teeth twice a day and flossing at least once a day.

This will ensure you get rid of the bacteria that can grow inside the mouth. It will also decrease your chance of getting gum diseases like gingivitis and periodontitis.

Consider Cosmetic Procedures

If you are not happy with your smile, there are certain cosmetic procedures that can be done to give you the perfect smile. Many people that are concerned about the color of their teeth decide to get teeth whitening as whiter teeth make them feel more confident about their smile.

You can also get dental implants if you have missing teeth and feel self-conscious about the gaps.
Things like braces also help people feel more confident about their smiles. Braces are not all cosmetic, though, as they are also needed to fix jaw issues.

No matter the issue you might have with your smile, our orthodontist and dental team will listen to your concerns and create a treatment plan for you to get the perfect smile you have always dreamed of.
