Is paying $3,000 to upwards of $20,000 worth getting a job? For some the answer has become an easy “Yes!” Job seekers all over, especially the older crowd and those requiring fixes to their smiles, have resorted to cosmetic procedures, such as having porcelain veneers placed on their teeth, in order to increase their chances of landing a job in today’s world.

Studies have shown that employers are more likely to hire a candidate that holds him/herself properly. This includes having an overall appealing appearance, and since the smile is one of the first things people notice about us, being able to show off straight pearly whites just may be the edge you need to land a new job.

While looks may play a large role in the fact of whether or not you are hired, there are also other factors that employers take into consideration. While you may have the best smile on earth, your resume, experience, and education will generally also have a say in whether or not you land a job. Simply put: looks aren’t everything, but they may increase your chances of being hired.
