How confident is your smile? The issues that can affect your dental issues are numerous, and when visible signs mar your smile (i.e., stained, decayed, or damaged teeth), you may be less likely to show your smile as often as you otherwise would. If you prefer a surly demeanor, then a shy smile may not affect your outlook. However, a smile can provide many benefits to those who employ theirs often. Miami dentist, Dr. Arun Garg, provides a wide variety of services to transform your smile into one you’ll be proud to show, allowing you to reap the benefits of a confident, consistent smile.
The Benefits of Smiling
- Be happy–When you smile, those around you believe you are content. Your body also perceives your apparent happiness and responds by releasing its natural feel-good chemicals called endorphins. If you feel down, try pasting a smile to your face to lift your mood.
- Make others happy–You may have heard the saying that a smile is contagious. You may have also noticed that when you smile, others around you may smile more, as well. Your smile can also make you more attractive and more approachable.
- Relax—In times of stress and/or anxiety, the act of smiling can force you to calm down and slow your breathing, helping you de-stress and think more clearly. When faced with a troublesome or upsetting situation, smile your way through it.
- Enjoy more success—Studies have shown that people who smile genuinely and often enjoy more fruitful professional and social lives. This may be due to the fact that a smile can convey an aura of confidence, helping others perceive you as trustworthy, honest, and dependable. By contrast, frowning constantly can repel others in a social setting and make your coworkers uncomfortable and less likely to interact with you.
