Cosmetic dentistry is one of the best gifts you can give yourself, especially if your smile is something you would rather not show the world.
According to American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry Accredited Fellow Dr. Jack Ringer, smiling makes you glow and feel better about yourself, both inside and out. Restorative and cosmetic dentistry bring back the glow if yours has lost its sparkle.
Having a healthy and beautiful smile makes you and everyone around you happy because when you smile they smile.
With that being said, smiling isn’t the only reason to turn up the corners of your mouth, even if it always isn’t a truthful grin.
Stress and anxiety cause a rise in blood pressure and can affect your heart rate. When you smile, the endorphins released by your brain give you a boost making you feel better about the situation.
Studies show that people who grin more often live longer. It seems that people who enjoy life smile more often and have a longer lifespan. Genuine intense smiling practiced daily really does help you live a longer, healthier life.
Grinning makes you feel better. If you are depressed turn up the corners of your mouth. While as difficult as it may seem, you’ll feel better because those endorphins are working again to make you feel better.
It’s contagious. When you smile at someone, it’s very difficult for them not to return the favor. Make it a habit and start with a grin every time you wake up. You’ll soon find it becomes a healthy habit that makes you look and feel better.
Smiling boosts your immune system because again, those feel good endorphins are doing their job healing you and your stress levels. Anxiety and stress lower the immune system making you more susceptible to disease.
You have to thank those brain endorphins once again for relieving your pain releasing natural pain relievers, which are much better for you than over the counter or prescription medications.
When you grin, you look more beautiful on the inside and the outside. When people see someone smile they can’t help but think that person is a happy person and because smiling makes you happier they are right.
A person who smiles is much more likely to get the job than someone who doesn’t. When you smile, you appear more confident to the world around you. Try smiling more the next time you are in a meeting or at a job interview and see what a difference it makes.
