Your facial expressions say a lot about how you are feeling, and your smile is a big part of your first impression. At Woodbury Dental Arts, we take pride in our ability to give our patients a smile makeover that makes them confident about the way they look. As you consider your options to improve your smile with cosmetic dentistry, consider some of these fun facts about smiling.
Smiling Makes You Look Good
Scientific studies have been done to find that most people consider faces that are smiling to be better-looking than those that are not. 70 percent of people prefer a smile over a fully made up serious face.
Have you ever noticed how one smile can lead to a chain reaction, and suddenly, everyone seems happier? That’s because there are neurons in the brain that synchronize and keep you in touch with those you are around. That means if you smile, someone else smiles.
Smiling Can Make You Happy
Ever feel like your day is rotten and nothing will make you feel better? If you can’t bring yourself to get up and do something active or fun, just try a simple smile. Smiling releases endorphins that allow you to fake it until you make it.
Smiling Is Easier Than Frowning
It takes more muscles to smile than it does to frown, but it’s easier to smile because we use the same muscles over and over, so they are stronger. Frowning is a workout while smiling should come easily.
Smiling Is the Same in Every Language
If you can’t communicate with someone through spoken language, a smile is the universal way to show friendliness and happiness. Even in a different country, you can show that you are happy with a simple smile.
