Think about it: your smile is front and center of your face, and acts as the underlying structure of the lower third of it. Poor shade, shape or structure of the smile can not only age you, but also affect the way strangers might perceive you. That’s why we went to the experts to find out what your smile might be saying about you, right in front of your face.
Pointed teeth: “Depending on where the points are, they can make you look aggressive. However, pointed cuspids can also look sexy, so it is also the arrangement of the teeth that helps determine the look,” say Atlanta cosmetic dentist Ronald E. Goldstein, DDS. Just look at Rebecca Romijn as an example.
Small teeth: When the teeth are too small, it makes it look like you’re not smiling very big-even when you are. “Small or uneven teeth convey a timid or unconfident personality, as well as an aged appearance,” says Tinley Park, IL, cosmetic dentist Zack Zaibak, DDS.
Rounded teeth: “These create a more feminine appearance,” Dr. Zaibak says. Sandra Bullock’s smile are a great example. This look can be achieved by subtly softening the edges of teeth with a tooth contouring treatment.
