Think body type or hair color is the most important feature in attracting a partner? Think again! A recent survey conducted by CosmaLite(TM) and founder, cosmetic dentist Dr. Steven Roth, suggests that a less-than-stellar smile is perhaps the greatest hindrance to finding romance.

The “Biggest Turn-off” dating survey revealed attributes that people find most appealing and least appealing in a romantic partner. When asked what they noticed first about potential partners, 62% of respondents said a person’s smile. Body type and eyes were tied at 12.5%, with fashion sense and complexion coming in at 6.3%

Respondents ranked facial attributes in order of importance as follows: teeth, number one by a landslide at 87.5%. Complexion, second at 66.7%, followed by eyes at 40%, nose at 33.3%, and hair color/style at 26.7%.

When asked what the biggest turn-off in a potential romantic partner is, bad breath topped the list at 31.3%, followed closely by yellow, crooked or missing teeth at 25%. Unattractive teeth are considered an even bigger turnoff than body odor (12.5%), lack of personality (18%), and unkempt appearance (12.5%).

The importance of a healthy, attractive smile on a scale of 1-10, was 9.33 on average. On the same scale, respondents rated their own smiles 7.5 on average….read more
