- Your Best Self -
A great first impression makes a world of difference. All it takes is 3 seconds for a person to evaluate you during a first encounter and in this short window, a person will form an opinion based on your physical appearance and bearing, demeanour and conduct as well as body language and mannerisms. These first impressions are significant because they are hard to change and they set the tone for the relationship and interactions that follow.
Key to a good first impression is beautiful teeth and a confident smile. According to a study by Invisalign, 29% of Americans surveyed say that teeth are the first facial feature noticed when meeting someone and 24% of Americans surveyed indicated that teeth are the facial feature remembered most after meeting someone. Unequivocally, having an amazing smile and a straight set of teeth will do wonders for establishing an unforgettable first impression.
The benefits of a great smile and straight teeth go beyond a strong first impression. Those with straight teeth are perceived as happier, friendlier and healthier, with more popularity, self-esteem and trustworthiness. Those with straight teeth also have a higher chance of attracting a possible mate and securing a second date. Moreover, those with straight teeth are more likely to have professional success, more likely to attain a job against a candidate with the similar skill set and experience and are more likely to clinch a face-forward job. Clearly, a winning smile and straight teeth are powerful and potent physical assets that will maximize your potential in both personal and professional spheres.

Dr Chua Ai Lian
Here at Dr Chua Ai Lian Orthodontic Clinic @ JGH Dental Clinic, we are guided by our conviction that orthodontics should deliver both cosmetic and functional dentistry. Cosmetic dentistry involves the visual perception of beauty, which incorporates symmetry, balance and harmony. On the other hand, functional dentistry concerns the utility of the teeth and jaws, the economy of biting movement and impact, the fit and synergy of the mouth, teeth and jaw. Pairing a deep understanding of the subtleties and complexities of functional dentistry with a keen appreciation of the aesthetics of cosmetics dentistry gained over 25+ years of orthodontics experience and advanced training in the U.S., we aim to equip you with healthy teeth and a beautiful smile, your best assets that will last you a lifetime.
