Theres Magic When You Smile
When you smile it tells the outside world that you are feeling happy on the inside. People that smile are often treated differently; they’re viewed as attractive, reliable, relaxed and sincere. Statistics reveal that your smile creates an immediate, subconscious, visual impact on everyone you meet. A radiant, beautiful smile is perceived as a sign of youth, vitality, health, happiness, and higher self-esteem. According to an American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry survey; virtually all adults believe a smile is an important social asset, 96% of adults believe an attractive smile makes a person more appealing, and 74% of adults feel an unattractive smile can hurt a person’s chance for career success.
Research shows that over time smiling can benefit your health, perception at work, social life, and romantic status. The act of smiling activates neural messaging that benefits your health and happiness by releasing the neurotransmitters dopamine, endorphins and serotonin.
Are you smiling enough? If not, why? Are your teeth too yellow, crowded, have spaces or do you have a gummy smile? If you are simply unhappy with your smile, cosmetic dentistry is an easy option to consider. It can improve your smile and give you the confidence boost you need. You no longer need to spend years wearing braces to have a beautiful smile. With modern advances in dentistry, as well as an experienced cosmetic dentist, a smile makeover can be completed in as little time as it takes you to go for your lunch break. The answer may be as simple as whitening your teeth to create a brighter smile or reshaping your gums to make a more attractive smile.
So, the next time you look in the mirror, take a good look at your smile, and ask yourself, “am I happy with its appearance?” If the answer is “yes,” then keep smiling! If not, CHANGE IT!!
Remember when you’re smiling the whole world smiles with you!!
