We know not all professional women are into the latest fashion trends or Paris runway reviews. Aside from your business suit and basic pumps, you have little time to worry about fancy designer labels. But one accessory is worth your time and attention, and that's your smile.
"The smiling face encourages clients to patronize and recommend companies that have received them warmly," according to the Stockholm School of Economics. And if that wasn't enough motivation, a smile can make you look younger, more relaxed and even improve your mood, says About.com.
Want to amp up your smile?
You don't need perfect teeth to have a nice grin, but if you yearn for choppers like the ones on the silver screen, procedures like laser whitening offer dramatically effective results.

Don't want to force a smile? Scientists have discovered more than 50 types of smiles. Studies show that the Duchenne smile that radiates from the eyes represents the truest and most intense smile. It's usually involuntary and suggests a genuine interest from within. You can even smile with your eyes, according to Tyra Banks.
