Don’t let bad teeth ruin your dating life!

Are you looking for ‘the one’? Rather than buying flowers or chocolates, studies suggest that you might have more dating success if you put time and effort into fixing your teeth. Read on to find out more.
Bad teeth: The number one turn-off for single people
Ahead of any other physical feature or bad habit, research from Plusnet found that bad teeth was the number one turn-off for online daters – a major setback when potential partners only have profile pictures to judge each other on. Another social experiment on dating app Plenty of Fish found that of two almost identical accounts – one featuring a photo with a perfect smile and the other with discoloured and missing teeth – the profile with the perfect smile received 60 percent more messages over the course of a week. A healthy, attractive smile radiates confidence and well-being – both highly desirable attributes in a long-term partner.
Single? Assess your smile
Look in the mirror or find a recent photograph of yourself. Are you smiling broadly or keeping your mouth closed to hide your teeth? A smile makes a lasting first impression and nearly a quarter of people (24%) say that a person’s teeth is the facial aspect that they remember most after meeting someone. If you’re uncomfortable with the way your teeth look, this lack of confidence will negatively impact your interactions with others, which can limit not only your dating life but also your employment prospects and overall happiness.
