A 2012 study by researchers from the universities of Leeds and Central Lancashire found that a white and evenly spaced set of teeth makes people seem more attractive. Little wonder our parents emphasized a lot on brushing our teeth when we were kids.

The researchers took pictures of models before digitally changing the colour and spacing of their teeth.

Three shades were used – a yellowish brown, healthy white, and startling white, which can only be achieved by bleaching.

The edited photos were then showed to 150 young men and women and asked them how attractive they found the models.

As expected, the yellowish coloured teeth were unpopular, while the white sparkly teeth caught the attention.

Another study revealed that 58 per cent of men notice a woman’s teeth first when judging whether they fancy them.

First impression matters a lot, and our teeth play a huge role in making that impression count.

Another study also found that 73% of people said that they look for a nice smile in their ideal partner.

Poor oral hygiene and discoloured teeth can be an indicator of poor health or excessive drinking or smoking. While it could also be said that teeth don’t need to be overly white to be considered attractive, just clean and natural looking.
