Looking Professional with Invisible Braces

When you’re going for an interview or starting working in a professional environment, appearances do matter. Professionalism is not just about how you work or the way you interact with people in the work place, it’s also about the way you present yourself. Sloppy clothes and messy hair indicate to an interviewer or employer that you’re not serious about your work. This can pose a problem when it comes to dental work, but invisible braces offer the perfect solution.

How Dental Work Affects your Interview

An employer would never expect you to have a perfectly straight smile, and employing you based on your teeth would count as discrimination! However, if your teeth are in a bad shape, it can affect your personal confidence in an interview. Even on a subconscious level, it often means you smile less or not as widely and genuinely, which can impact your performance at an interview. This is one reason why cosmetic dentistry can be really beneficial when it comes to looking and feeling professional.

Other dental hygiene practises and implications can also affect your interview. For instance, missing teeth can make you look unprofessional, which is why it’s really important to talk to your dentist about tooth replacement options, such as dental implants.

Bad dental hygiene can also lead to bad breath. This is never good at an interview or in a work place as was discussed in another of our posts. First impressions are really important and if you potential employer is put off by your bad breath, it will make your impressive CV or interview much less effective.

Invisible Braces and Teeth Straightening

If you have misaligned teeth, you might want to look at straightening options – not just for work, but for your general life and comfort. Cosmetic dentistry is often less about how other people see you, and more about how you see yourself. So many interview tips articles focus on positive thinking and suggest that confidence is 50% of the work! If you are self-conscious about your teeth and find that that impacts your daily life, it’s likely that it will also affect your interview, even without you realising it. Teeth straightening can really help you smile more, and a winning smile could turn an average interview into a great one.

However, as an adult traditional braces aren’t necessarily an attractive solution. Many people say they feel like a teenager again and are more self-conscious about their smile while they wait for their teeth straightening work to be completed. This isn’t what you want.

Invisible braces provide a solution. It’s becoming one of the most popular options for adults who want to straighten their teeth. Invisible braces are made out of clear, acrylic plastic and encourage the gradual movement of your teeth, shifting them into the correct position. Because they’re completely clear, you can wear them in the workplace or at an interview without feeling self-conscious about the way your teeth look.

Unlike traditional braces, invisible braces are removable. This means that if you don’t feel comfortable wearing them in an interview, you can easily just take them out and slip them into your bag.

Confidence is the key to interviews. This means that appearance, and the way you feel about your teeth and your smile is really important. Don’t hesitate to find out more about how teeth straightening with invisible braces can help you.

4 things you must do before your job interview

‘Fail to prepare, and you prepare to fail’. It’s a cliché, but there’s truth in it.

Before your job interview you need to make sure you prepare thoroughly. Even if you don’t end up securing the position, you can be safe in the knowledge you did your best.

Of course, every interview is unique, however, there are some general steps that apply to any application.

Research the Business and Interviewer

First and foremost you want to find out everything you can about the company in question. Take a chunk of time to explore their website, and get a feel of what they do, and where they stand within their industry.

This research will also help you decide whether it is the sort of company you could see yourself working for.

Make sure you visit their blog (if they have one) and check any existing mentions of the company online.

Review the Job Description and Responsibilities

It’s crucial that before your interview you get a good grasp of the job description and responsibilities.

With this in mind you’ll be able to discuss your most relevant skills and experience in the interview.

Make sure you line up any questions about the role that you want to know to ask at the end of your interview.

Practice Common Interview Questions

Search the web for some common interview questions, and practice your answers.

You don’t want to be reading your answer off a script, but make sure you have an idea of what areas you’ll touch on if you’re asked a specific question.

Preparing yourself for common questions can be really handy in giving a smooth and confident response.

Brainstorm Industry Questions and Answers

Finally, before you go to your interview, you’ll want to brainstorm questions and answers that are more industry specific.

Grab a friend or family member to practice these questions, and you’ll go into the interview feeling confident.
