Did you know just the act of smiling has been proven to make you feel better? A new study published in Experimental Psychology reported that simply moving your facial muscles to form a smile, even if you don’t feel like it, generates positive emotions and raises your mood! However, many people are not happy with their teeth and feel self-conscious about showing them. Luckily, there are many cosmetic dental treatments that can address a range of dental imperfections. Here are five reasons a smile makeover can transform not only your pearly white but your life!

#1: Smiling Strengthens Your Immune System

Smiling can make you physically healthier? Yes, it sure can! According to a study by the Loma Linda University School of Medicine’s Department of Clinical Immunology, white blood cells increased in the study’s participants whenever they chuckled and smiled, which helps the body fight infection and other diseases. Showing your pearly whites really does boost your immunity.

#2: Smiling Makes a Great First Impression

It’s been said that a first impression is made within seven seconds. That’s not a lot of time to make a positive impact. However, a quick smile can be flashed right away and make a lasting impression. If your teeth are bright and healthy looking, you will be more likely to engage to show them.  Cosmetic dental treatments like veneers can instantly transform your teeth and give you the confidence to engage with others.  

#3: Smiling Makes You Look More Youthful

A recent study conducted by Oral B found that models with whiter teeth were perceived to be five to 10 years younger. By making your smile brighter with professional teeth whitening, you’ll be able to wind back the years with your new pearly whites. Another bonus is that you can look more youthful in one day! In as little as one dental appointment, your teeth can become up to eight shades whiter.

#4: Smiling Helps You Recover from Stress

The Wall Street Journal reported a study that found smiling helped people recover faster from a stressful task. Not only does smiling reduce your heart rate more quickly, but it also sends signals of “safety” to the brain. When your stress level is lowered, you can make the most of your days and relationships with your beautifully enhanced teeth.

#5: Smiling Increases Your Overall Happiness

If you feel comfortable with the condition of your smile, you will freely show it to the world! Every time you do turn the corners of your mouth up, your brain releases “feel good” chemicals. This can happen whether you do it spontaneously or deliberately. By achieving your dream smile, you will naturally feel more confident about showing off your teeth. You will find yourself smiling more often, increasing your happiness in the process!

Isn’t it amazing all the benefits smiling can have on your appearance and your well-being? By getting a smile makeover, you are sure to reap all the rewards for years to come.
