What Does Your Smile Say About You?

The size and shape of your smile is the key factor in first impressions, and it could make or break you. That’s what cosmetic dentists Drs. Christian Coachman and David Dunn say in an interview with WA today.

“The minute we meet someone we are making assumptions about every aspect of their personality and disposition before we even process what they are saying,” says Dr. Coachman.

This includes your smile!

When you flash those pearly whites, you may be sending a subliminal message to your fellow peers, which could determine your success professionally and personally. Four Personalities Based on Your Smile

According to the article, there are four personality types based on a smile’s shape and size. Those shapes include:

  • Oval shape – Displays melancholic or sensitive personality, meaning you are organized, a perfectionist, artistic, abstractive, timid, and reserved.
  • Triangular shape – Displays a sanguine or dynamic personality, meaning you are extroverted, communicative, enthusiastic, dynamic, and impulsive.
  • Rectangular shape – Displays a choleric or strong personality, meaning you are determined, objective, explosive, intense, entrepreneur, and passionate.
  • Square shape – Displays phlegmatic or peaceful personality, meaning you are diplomatic, mystic, pacific, spiritualized, conformist, and discreet.
