Your smile says a lot about you. It’s a proven fact that people with attractive, healthy smiles are perceived to be friendly and intelligent and are more likely to be promoted at work, earn more money, and have personal and professional success.

Your front two top teeth are called the central incisors and serve as the center of your smile. They also indicate age.
