Whiter Teeth Wins Election

Outshine for Presidency

It is election year and such always brings about new debates and theories on how or why which candidate will win.  This year, a new study presented by Luster Premium brings an interested tale to the table.  It suggests there is a correlation between teeth whiteness and electability! (Periodontal Associates hopes that is not how our Denver, CO officials are elected).
Drs.Versman, Heller, and Beckman just hope the two candidates are keeping up proper home care maintenance; however, the information provided is a fun speculation.
The study was conducted by analyzing multiple photos taken of presidential candidates during campaigning in order to compare the competitor’s witness in their smiles. The photos were adjusted in order to rule out variables such as lighting and other environmental conditions.

This idea has been proven to be effective with evidence trickling back from 1992.  Some presidential winners with whiter choppers include Bill Clinton when he defeated George H.W. Bush.  He also then won over a duller-smiled Bob Dole.

And again, George W. Bush has an ever so slightly brighter smile than Al Gore in 2000.  He, too, repeated his victory in 2004 over John Kerry whose smile just was not up to par.

Is this information accurate, believable, or insightful? What will happen in the 2012 election?  In comparison, Barrack Obama’s teeth do in fact barely beat Mitt Romney’s in terms of whose is whitest. 
Both Romney and Obama continue their trips to Denver, CO, so if you get the chance to see them speak, be sure to pay attention to their teeth.

  1. I hope someone in Denver is reading this and is getting ready to prep Romney for 24 units of OM1 porcelain NOW! We can chip in for the lab bill :)
