Have you ever noticed someone with a great smile and thought about how it made YOU feel? Something about a terrific smile seems to leave a lasting impression. While it’s obvious that a healthy, appealing smile can make one more attractive, a great smile goes far beyond an advantage to just looks.
Everyone likes to be around positive people. Someone who smiles often projects warmth, friendliness and self-confidence. These are all qualities that make their presence welcome.
This is why a smile may be an on-the-job advantage. Studies have shown that people who smile often and have a healthy, attractive smile are perceived to be more confident, easy to approach, more successful and more likely to be promoted.
Smiling is also a quick way to look younger. When you smile, you get an instant face lift. Smiling pulls facial muscles upward, hence lifting sagging areas.
However, many people are unaware of the psychological advantages of smiling. Smiling can lower blood pressure and boost the immune system by releasing endorphins and serotonin. These are the ‘feel good’ chemicals in the brain, giving you a natural high.
An exercise in this is to smile while having negative thoughts. It’s surprisingly difficult to do. This shows how powerful a smile can be in creating a positive mindset.
If your smile is not inspiring you to smile often, consider smile enhancements. The affordability is often unexpected since there are many options in cosmetic dentistry. Whitening, bonding, porcelain crowns, porcelain veneers and Invisalign are ways to improve a smile, often in just one or two appointments. Some financial plans enable you to enjoy your new smile while making easy, monthly payments (with no down payment required, in most cases).
I’ve never completed a smile enhancement on a patient who didn’t say, “This is the best investment I’ve ever made.” Don’t deny yourself a smile that can add so significantly to your life in countless ways. Call toll free 1-866-9-Smiles for a free consultation. And get ready to smile your best!
