The Psychology Of Smiling And Cosmetic Dentistry

Have you noticed that you’re starting to smile less and it’s starting to wear you down? Smiling less leads to reduced self-confidence especially in public. Know that you’re not alone, studies have shown almost a third of adults agreed that the one thing they would fix about themselves is their smile and or teeth. Cosmetic dentistry can restore your teeth and enhance those pearly whites to what you envision to be a brighter smile, helping you feel better about your smile and improves your morale. Cosmetic dentistry is also great for patients who don’t have the time to wear braces or commit to other extensive dental procedures.

Receiving a smile back from another person is an enormous mood and morale booster. As stated in the Association For Psychological Science, “ A smile begins in our sensory corridors, as the eyes spot an old friend, the ears collect a whispered word, or the hands feel the pressure of another hand…those who witness it often respond by mirroring the action, and smiling back.” This action stimulates a smile and produces a genuine positive expression and emotion. Scientist call this the “ Duchenne Smile” and most consider it the sole indicator of true enjoyments as stated in the same article. Another function of smiling is that it enhances our attractiveness as others notice that confidence. Know that you have options and know what your options are to achieving that perfect smile.
