How vital do you think having perfect teeth is to landing a prestigious entry level job?
I'm wondering what your thoughts are on this. I'm 1/4 Irish and 3/4 German. I come from a wealthy family, but they wouldn't even pay for braces. My teeth are a bit crooked (almost done invisalign in two months), two small chips due to playing spots, and kind of small due to my genes (parents also skimped in whole milk, quality fish, etc...). I really don't want to be held down due to this minor (perceived) flaw. I've always been the brightest and would rather do technology sales than be held down for life in a place like NYC.
I can either spend 25-30k on my teeth or put it towards a downpayment on a house and build ~130k in equity. I already have family I could pay to collect that rent and an established network of trade professionals in the area. On the other hand, I could spend 25-30k to do a whole set of Zirconia veneers on my upper teeth (and could still make rent in NYC).
Looking to hear your thoughts on this.
P.S. Almost finished Invisalign.
