In the UK and many other countries around the world, many people are taking advantage of adult braces. For example, individuals can opt to have invisible braces in London. After all, consumers want to have nice smiles, as research published by Bupa has pointed out.

The firm conducted a survey of around 1,000 people in Britain and found that many individuals believe having a nice set of teeth can have a major impact on a person's career and romantic life. Over half of those polled believed a good smile could help an individual get a better job, while almost half believed it could help people make more friends.

Conversely, three-fifths of respondents suggested that having bad teeth can prevent people from finding a partner.

The survey also asked which celebrities have the nicest smile and new royal Kate Middleton topped the poll. The glamorous duchess was followed by singers Cheryl Cole and Alesha Dixon.

However, despite their desire to have a good set of teeth, it was found that one in seven people had not been to the dentist in the last four years, while one in 25 had never been to the dentist.

Commenting on the findings, Bupa's Dr Brian Franks said: "Being happy with your teeth can have a big impact on your confidence and this can affect your work and relationships. So it's surprising that so many people don't go for regular dental examinations. Even people who are currently happy with their teeth should pay attention to their dental health, as problems can happen at any time and get worse if not treated."

He went on to note that gum disease is "very common" and affects more than half of adults. If left untreated, it can lead to tooth loss, Dr Franks warned.

These days, there are many different dental treatments available for consumers to make the most of. For example, they can choose to have adult braces, including invisible braces in London.
