It is easy to imagine that the pursuit of a perfect smile is a new phenomenon, but apparently smiles have been evolving for millions of years, helping to increase our attractiveness to the opposite sex.
Now it seems as if we can thank pre-mammalian reptiles that were on earth an amazing 300 million years ago, as researchers have found these creatures evolved distinct types of teeth in order to attract a mate. These reptiles evolved to have long sabretooth canine teeth that were hornlike structures on the upper and lower jaws and which researchers concluded were for sexual display. Today, mammals still use their canine teeth to intimidate others or to attract a mate.
So how does this information relate to us? Your dentition is separated into three different types of teeth which include your incisors and your back teeth, as well as your canines. Unless you have vampiric tendencies then it’s unlikely you will want to have particularly long canines, but your teeth are still an important part of attracting a mate.
Your Smile Does Matter
The online dating website match.com found that 58% of men judge women on their teeth. It’s even worse for men, as 71% of women judge men on their teeth, so having a nice smile truly is important for attracting a partner. Luckily these days there is an easy solution, and that is the think about using cosmetic dentistry to get the smile of your dreams.
