How A Nicer Smile Makes A Difference In Your Life
January 17, 2014 by Dr. Emanuel Layliev cosmetic dentistry
It might sound silly, but your smile can make a huge difference in your life and in the lives of those around you. Here are just a few ways fixing your teeth can change your life:
Having a nicer smile means you’ll ultimately be much happier than you would be without a nice smile. The reason for this is people who love their teeth tend to laugh and smile more often because they are proud to show their teeth off.
On the other hand, people who are embarrassed about their smiles are less likely to joke or laugh or seek out funny situations because they fear having to expose that smile they are ashamed of. It has been proved that laughter is healthy and smiles are infectious, so those with more confidence about their smiles tend to be happier than those with less confidence about them.
The difference between avoiding laughter when you find something funny and just thinking about the fun you’re having is like night and day. Years of this worrying can really take their toll on an individual and have negative long-term emotional effects. For instance, those who laugh less are more prone to depression because their lack of laughter suppresses the release of endorphins in their brains.
