Are Your Nicotine-Stained Teeth Costing You Sales? Dental Veneers Can Help

by Charlotte Beck

Smoking is never a good habit to indulge in, but is particularly damaging to salespeople. That's because it can stain your smile and drive away potential clients. However, cosmetic veneers can immediately improve your smile and protect your teeth from other types of damage.

Appearance Matters in Sales... Especially Your Smile

Your appearance isn't necessarily "everything" when you are a salesperson, but it does matter a lot. That's because people often respond positively to people who look professional, clean cut, and healthy. Dressing professionally and taking care of your overall health makes you look more attractive, respectable, and trustworthy.

People are particularly paying attention to your smile, though they might not realize it. That's because individuals often respond unconsciously to the quality of a person's smile and may be turning you down because they are judging your nicotine-stained teeth.

Smoking Will Stain Your Smile

Smoking is not only destructive to your breath and your dental health, but it can also stain the exterior of your teeth. While these stains won't develop overnight, they will become more apparent and destructive the longer you smoke. And as they start developing, your potential clients may notice and react to them in a negative way.

Therefore, it is critical to avoid these stains by quitting smoking as soon as possible. However, there is still likely going to be some nicotine buildup on your teeth that simply won't come off. In this scenario, it is important to get cosmetic veneers to protect the quality of your teeth.

Veneers Can Help Eliminate Your Stains

If you just quit smoking and can't get rid of those nicotine stains on your teeth, you need to take steps to improve your appearance. One of the quickest and most effective methods is to add veneers to your teeth. These porcelain shells will go over the front of your teeth to protect them from stains and to keep them from getting worse. They also immediately whiten your smile.

For a salesperson, this is a major benefit because it will make you a more respected and presentable individual. Just as importantly, it will protect your teeth from the kind of damage that smoking causes, ensuring that they stay strong for years to come and avoid any other sales complications.

So if you are worried about yellow nicotine stains upsetting your sales career, don't hesitate to contact a cosmetic dentist for help. These professionals will inspect your stains and find the veneer type that is right for your specific dental needs.
