One of the biggest gifts we give to our patients is happiness.
So many of our patients come to us because they simply don’t smile enough because of their perception of their teeth, which means that they don’t feel great overall. Yellow teeth, stained teeth, gaps or crooked teeth can affect how you interact with people and your entire outlook on your life.
Your smile could all that is holding you back from getting that new job, finding a loved one or even making new friends.
The facts about smiling
Smiling changes your attitude and you just stop yourself being in a attitude when you smile.
Smiling also raises your confidence.
But why does smiling do this? Smiling affects our emotions because of a brain-body connection. It triggers scientifically measurable activity in the left frontal cortex—the area of the brain where happiness is registered.
In fact, there is science dedicated to the study of facial expressions and responses called FACS – Facial Action Coding System. Your face has 44 muscles between the skin, cartilage, blood, and bone that you contort, flex, and move. This lets you make over 5000 different types of expressions. That’s a lot of expressions! And each will have a different affect on your feelings and those looking at you.
Admit it, when someone is smiling aren’t you drawn in? Don’t you enjoy that person’s company more? We all do. Smiling is a very important part of connecting and getting to know someone.
Why dont we smile more?
Time and time again – it’s because of our teeth! Our perception of how people view our teeth can actually be so bad, that it creates an enormous complex and fault that keeps us from living life to the fullest. It is virtually impossible to moody if you’re smiling!
