Want To Be Influential? Have A Winning Smile!

Some of the world's most successful people have a key trait 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.

According to the researchers, the smiles of some of the world's most prominent people revealed common standards, regardless of occupation or gender.  And, these smile commonalities are believed to play a decisive role in the overall facial expressions of these individuals.

The most important aesthetic of a winning smile, say researchers, 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.  An ideal smile, then, is having straight, bright teeth that complement the overall face in size, color and position.
