Invisalign ‘could boost confidence’
invisible braces could help people move up the career ladder by improving their confidence, said one beauty coach, as some bosses admit they would be reluctant to hire people with less-than-perfect smiles.
Lina Cameron warned that being self-conscious about teeth could make someone seem aloof or stand-offish.
“When smiles are bright and straight people appear approachable and friendly,” she added.
The expert said she advises her clients to try invisible braces to perfect their “natural assets” and increase their self-confidence.
Invisalign braces move teeth gradually by using clear replaceable aligners that are easily removed.
Over a quarter of human resources managers recently confessed they might not hire someone with bad teeth, according to a survey by Opinion Matters.
People working in the media, or in marketing or sales put more importance on their looks, as nearly 40 per cent told Invisalign that having an unappealing grin could interfere with job opportunities.
However, other careers are affected too, with 30 per cent of all Londoners revealing they always notice the smiles and teeth of those they meet at interviews and almost one-third think that having straight teeth makes them more confident at work.
