The Key to Success? A Smile!

Some of the world’s most successful people have something in common:  a great smile.  

This comes from a study by Spanish researchers who looked at pictures of smiling faces from Time magazine’s annual list of the most 100 influential people from 2006 to 2010.  They found that there were strong consistencies in the kind of smile each individual possessed.

"The smiles of the world's most influential people revealed common standards, regardless of occupation or gender," wrote the study authors, from the University of Seville School of Dentistry. Those commonalities "may play a decisive role in the expressions of influential faces."

According to the researchers, the most important aesthetic of a winning smile is balance -- “...the overall harmony of the face.”  This takes into account general dental features including teeth form, position and color, as well as the dimensions of the soft tissue.
