White and Beyond: Why bad teeth can age women and men by 13 years

Nov. 30, 2010 - PRLog -- Having bad teeth can age a woman by a staggering 13 years, research revealed today.

Experts found that smoking and drinking coffee or red wine coupled with a failure to regularly brush can put years on the average woman.

The revelation emerged after photos of a female model - one showing off real, gleaming white teeth and another with stained, yellow teeth - were shown to 2,000 people.

Brits were asked to pinpoint the age of the model with perfect teeth, then shown the picture of her with computer-generated, discoloured molars.

And the age of the woman with gleaming teeth was guessed as 31 while the other photograph saw the nation estimate an age of 44.

Dr Phil Stemmer, dental ambassador for Oral B, who carried out the research, said: 'Teeth are one of the first things we notice about a person.

'When people don't look after their teeth, they tend not to smile, which can give off a bad impression.

'Whether or not we are aware of it, when we first meet someone who doesn't smile or has unhealthy looking teeth we can form negative intuitive views about their lifestyle - from their relationship status, career success and pay packet to their character and even their age.

'The health of your teeth is a major indicator of the lifestyle you lead, and this study highlights what we all instinctively know, that unhealthy looking teeth mean you need to improve your lifestyle.

'This can be anything from cutting down on the number of coffees or glasses of red wine you have a week to quitting smoking.

'The research highlights the importance the appearance of your teeth can have on the way people perceive you.

'Teeth are important to the way you look and how confident you feel but it also has an impact on your overall health which can often be overlooked.

'We're all after the elixir of youth, but one of the simplest ways you can ensure you maintain your youthful looks is to brush up on your oral hygiene.'
