Your smile: it’s the first thing people notice about you.
It can bring you the confidence to get you through your day. It can cheer up the loved ones around you. It can say so much about who you are. But if you’re not crazy about your smile, you might be less willing to show it off to the world.
For you, a smile makeover could change your life. Learn why below.
Your Social Life Will Thank You
Smiling has consistently been linked to positive results in life. Smiling signals friendliness and a welcoming attitude. People are more likely to gravitate towards someone who smiles a lot than someone who hides their smile behind closed lips.
A study in the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology focusing on women showed that women who smiled more in their college yearbook pictures were more likely to be married in the next five years. Marriage doesn’t have to be everyone’s goal, but this definitely shows these smilers were more approachable and more likely to form connections with people.
Your Mental Health Will Thank You
Smiling releases endorphins to your brain that make you feel happy and soothed. These endorphins can reduce your stress level, make you feel relaxed, and improve your mental health. Smiling also releases serotonin in your brain: the neurotransmitter responsible for feelings of happiness and well-being.
A smile is like a natural antidepressant that improves your mental health. And if you love your smile, you’re more likely to smile more! That means more serotonin and good feelings to make your brain happy.
A variety of studies have shown that people who smile often are healthier, and even live longer.
Your Physical Health Will Thank You
Smiling has also been shown to increase people’s quality of physical health. A variety of studies have shown that people who smile often are healthier, and even live longer.
One study that followed 200 Major League baseball players found that those players who had genuine smiles in their team photos did in fact live longer than their peers who did not smile in their photos. The study, and others like it, prove that when you smile, you feel good — and your body feels good too.
Your First Impressions Will Thank You
First impressions are everything. They can help you land that dream job, or strike up a connection with the cute barista at your local coffee shop. According to a study by Kelton Global, the most memorable feature in a first impression is your smile. 48% of adults listed your smile as the most important feature when meeting someone for the first time.
Everyone wants to stand out, especially with something as important as an interview or the possibility of a lifelong connection with a new friend. You deserve to have a smile that you’re proud to show off.
Smile Fort Worth Can Enhance Your Smile
Don’t have that smile you love yet? Cosmetic dentistry from Smile Fort Worth can help you achieve that perfect smile you’ve always wanted: the one that you’ll be thrilled to show every day.
Thanks to rapidly improving dental technology, cosmetic dentistry has made huge strides in recent years. Procedures that may have seemed unattainable several years ago are easier than ever to perform. So if it’s been awhile since you looked into cosmetic dentistry, it’s time to take another look.
Some of our most common cosmetic dentistry procedures are:
- Porcelain Veneers
- Gum Contouring
- Dental Bonding
- Tooth Contouring
- Teeth Whitening
Veneers can help your teeth reach the perfect aesthetic shape. A veneer is a layer of thin material that we place over your teeth. Veneers can increase the size of teeth that are too small, or fill gaps that impact the attractiveness of your smile. These can be a great way to achieve the smile you are looking for. Our practice works with experienced dental laboratories to create veneers perfectly designed for you. When it comes to placing them, Drs. Harlin, Wilkinson, and Collins have extensive experience and a gentle approach.
If you feel like a full-smile makeover could give you newfound confidence, we would love to talk to you.
If veneers seem too advanced for you, professional teeth whitening is a very accessible option that many of our patients benefit from.
You may have seen or used teeth whitening options at the store, but the best way to have your teeth whitened is by an experienced dentist. Our solution is more powerful than over-the-counter options and we will make sure your results match your expectations.
If you’re unhappy with your smile, you’re not alone.
As we get back to “normal” routines in the next few months, don’t be afraid to make changes that will improve your quality of life. If you’re unhappy with your smile, you’re not alone. There are millions of people across the United States who have benefitted from cosmetic dentistry.
