Smiling Helps You Feel Good
One of the most important benefits of a smile makeover is that it makes you feel more comfortable smiling in any situation. And when you’re smiling, you will enjoy significant emotional benefits: you will feel better. Why?
First of all, smiling leads to the release of neuropeptides that can reduce your stress. Even a fake smile can lead to reduced stress. This isn’t just the psychological side of stress, either, it actually lowered the heart rates of test subjects, which could lead to better heart health in the long term.
In addition, smiling releases endorphins, serotonin, and dopamine. These feel-good neurotransmitters can boost your mood and reduce pain.
The Whole World Smiles with You
Have you ever wished someone would smile at you? Just one smile to help you feel better can make all the difference some days.
Here’s good news: if you want to get a smile, all you have to do is give one. That’s because when people see a smile, they’re compelled to smile back. Researchers speculate that it’s part of the way the brain interprets expressions. However, once someone smiles back at you this way, they also benefit from the emotional boost that comes with it.
And when you see them smile at you, your own smile grows and becomes more genuine, stimulating a more powerful mood boost.
Build Better Relationships
Smiling is a key component of building good relationships. Whether we’re talking about friendships, comradeships between coworkers, and even romantic relationships.
When people see a smiling face, they’re more likely to remember it, and the name associated with it. You become a positive association in people’s minds. And they’re more likely to find that person attractive. Overall, these two effects can help you build and maintain better relationships.
We can’t stop growing older. However, we can do something about how old we look. And one of things we can do is to improve our smiles.
Restoring your smile makes you look younger in two ways. First, there’s the smile itself. Discolored, worn, and damaged teeth all cue that a person is older. If you have visibly damaged or discolored teeth, you will notice that you look older and people perceive you as being older. Giving yourself a younger-looking smile will take years off your apparent age.
But restoring your teeth can help you look younger even when you’re not smiling. That’s because teeth are structural supports for your face. When teeth get worn down, damaged, or lost, the skin of your face has to fold and/or sag, resulting in more wrinkles, a more pronounced turkey neck, jowls, and other features.
Restoring the youthful proportions of your teeth can help you enjoy a younger appearance.
We mentioned above that smiling can help reduce the effects of stress on your heart. But restoring your smile can help your health in other ways, too. We can eliminate any fillings or crowns that harbor bacteria and contribute to local and systemic inflammation. We can also eliminate gaps and crooked teeth that make it hard to clean your teeth.
This will help you avoid gum disease and other oral infections. These infections can increase your risk of heart problems, autoimmune disorders, cancer, and more.
