Do you have bad teeth and therefore avoid smiling? Do all your pictures show you with a closed mouth smile or frown? Get yourself in to see a dentist for a healthy mouth and mind because guess what? Smiling has a major impact on your life. How?
A smile speaks a thousand words. If you are walking down the street and smile at someone and they smile back, you think they are a happy, nice person. If you get smiled at from a stranger, it makes you feel good inside. A smile connects to emotions. It shows others how you are feeling, giving them a glimpse into your mood and personality. Each of us has a unique smile that makes us who we are.
If you have high blood pressure, try smiling more often. A smile is known to help reduce blood pressure and keep you healthy. Are you stressed out? Try smiling! Even a fake smile can help reduce stress and lower blood pressure. Of course, you will need to keep up your medical routine but a smile can go a long way in helping you stay healthy.
Guess what else? Smiling boosts your immune system because it causes you to automatically become more relaxed.
Are you feeling down? Go ahead and smile! You can do it. Smiling activates your serotonin and dopamine levels, making you feel uplifted. Finding it difficult to smile? Try watching your favourite comedy show or reflecting on some happy childhood memories. Smiling is a natural way to put a smile back into your heart. You will feel happy again in no time at all!
The attraction is often tied to a smile. “How did he/she catch your eye? Through a beautiful smile.” Your smile is the first thing someone notices when you meet. A smile is a major component in a first impression, showing off not only your natural beauty but personality. The attraction is formed through both physical and internal traits. Your smile can draw someone in so keep showing off your happy grin to the world and remember, you only get one chance at a first impression!
Your dentist is the key to helping you stay smiling. By keeping your teeth and gums healthy, you will have plenty to smile about. Cambrian Dental wants you to keep smiling and knows that regular check-ups and dental cleanings positively impact your life.
