Improved Confidence
 
When you see someone with a perfect smile, what do you perceive to be true about them? A) Happy B) Successful C) Confident D) Smart E) Friendly F) Healthy.  Hopefully you answered C, confident.  Having yellow or discolored teeth can make a person feel uncomfortable and hold them back from smiling.  A bright smile helps you exude self-confidence, as well as inspiring trust for you in others.
