Did you know that your emotional wellbeing affects your physical health? Smiling may not be as intense as a 30-minute workout, but it can make an equally major impact on your self esteem.

The Science Behind Smiling

When you smile, it releases endorphins, which can help you actually feel happier (even if your smile was fake!) and more self-confident. This can start a domino effect where other people feel happier when around you as well.

Studies have shown that being smiled at is a sign of affirmation and acknowledgement, which can create a positive effect on those around you. In short, smiling takes little effort but can help boost their confidence and yours too.

What Is a Beautiful Smile?

If you flip through magazines or binge watch TV, you’ll see a lot of beautiful smiles, complete with straight, white teeth. It is easy to lack confidence in your own smile if it doesn’t look picture-perfect. Hiding your smile not only shows your own lack of confidence in yourself, but also stops you from showing others how much you care about them. Your smile is a powerful tool, and don’t let any embarrassment about how it looks stop you from showing it off!

How to Get the Smile of Your Dreams

At White Settlement Family Dentistry, we want you to have the smile you’ve always dreamed of and can’t wait to show off. If you are self-conscious about having yellow teeth, we offer in-office whitening treatments that can make your teeth eight shades whiter in just an hour. If you have chips or crooked teeth, we offer veneers or Snap-On Smile® for a less permanent alternative to veneers. We also have realistic, beautiful solutions for missing teeth, including same day crowns and bridges that don’t need any additional upkeep.

No matter what you don’t like about your smile, know that you have your options when it comes to treatment. You’ll be grinning from ear-to-ear in no time! Contact us to set up an appointment today and get your confidence back.
