The Richmond Metropolitan Area encompasses 13 counties and four independent cities. The metro area is home to 1,260,029 people. Richmond’s unemployment rate of 5.40 (as of April 2015) is comparable to the nationwide average, and has been declining steadily since 2010. That is a great indicator of Richmond’s quality of life, but there are still a lot of people competing for jobs. Sperling’s Best Places reports that nearly 39 percent of jobs are in business, management, finance, sales, office, and administrative support. Personal appearance plays a big role in getting that type of job, and in doing well in a white collar environment. Dr. Charles Martin is helping women and men in Richmond land dream jobs with professional teeth whitening.
The value of a bright smile in business
Your resume tells a prospective employer about your education, skills, and experience, but it doesn’t tell the whole story of you. That’s why it is vitally important to make a good impression during a job interview. It may not be fair or accurate, but humans naturally make judgements about others based on appearance, including the condition of their teeth. A 2012 survey by Kelton Research found that 29 percent of Americans feel that the smile is the first aspect they notice when they meet someone, and 24 percent said it is the facial trait they most remember. Individuals with attractive teeth are seen as more intelligent, successful, and trustworthy. If you were on the hiring side of the desk, wouldn’t you be drawn to a candidate with a white smile?
Plenty of options at Richmond Smile Center
Dr. Martin understands that your teeth, lifestyle, budget, and schedule aren’t like anyone else’s. He provides a range of teeth whitening solutions, so there is sure to be one that fits your life.
In office whitening
– In about an hour, your teeth can be ten shades brighter with the Zoom! light-activated system. For the patient who prefers fast whitening without the need for a light source, Opalescence Boost is a good choice. It has the added advantage of fluoride and potassium nitrate to condition tooth enamel.
At home whitening
– Dr. Martin takes impressions of your mouth to create trays that fit comfortably and seal well, to hold professional-strength NightWhite gel on your teeth. Wear the trays at night for noticeably whiter teeth in just three applications. Then keep your smile sparking with periodic re-application.
– The KöR deep bleaching system lifts even deep stains, for teeth up to 16 shades whiter. Treatment is kick-started with an in-office whitening session, and then continued with whitening at home. The KöR product is formulated with desensitizing ingredients for a comfortable experience.
