The Great Smile Boom
- Posted on: Nov 15 2017
During early adulthood, it is natural for us to begin to notice our smile. This is because our twenties and thirties are the time in life when we are dating, meeting our mate, making new friends, and beginning our climb up that corporate ladder. There is an inherent knowing that the appearance of our smile plays a role in our ultimate success in these endeavors, and this has also been confirmed in multiple research studies.
The Power of a Radiant Smile
Beauty is a matter of perspective, yes; and most humans are naturally drawn to a radiant, warm smile. On a subconscious level, the attractive nature of a smile eludes to trustworthiness. It tells us that a person is friendly, successful, young and vibrant. These are just a few of the character traits that have been assumed by people during market research. At the end of the day, having a great smile also boosts our confidence, and that may be the ultimate win. It is a win that we all deserve to experience, even the older generation.
Rise of the Baby Boomers
Historically, age has been a process to endure. Lines and wrinkles would be noticed, and then would become familiar over time. It also used to be very common for older adults to accept dull teeth, discoloration around the gum line, dark spaces in the smile where gums have receded, and even tooth loss. Not anymore.
The Baby Boomer generation is aging in a way that no previous generation has. These adults were not retiring when their parents did. Around the age of 65, rather than picking up a golf club, these people may be seen in the board room, or in line with younger adults interviewing for the same job, or on an online dating app. Older adults these days are showing fewer signs of slowing down, and that means they deserve to feel extraordinarily good about how they are showing up.
