As a Costa Mesa Cosmetic Dentist , we can improve your smile so you can be proud to show it off. Smiling comes with many benefits that extend beyond simply looking better. Your mental and emotional health can be improved and so can your social interactions. If you do not like your smile and are therefore unwilling to use it, you should schedule an appointment with our office so we can determine the best way to improve it.
Smiling Is Good for You
Here are a few of the ways your smile can help you.
#1 – It releases endorphins.
These are your happy neuropeptides that help your neurons communicate. The release of endorphins, dopamine, and serotonin help you have an overall sense of well-being, happiness, and relaxation. These neuropeptides can even improve your health by lowering your blood pressure and heart rate and also acting as a natural pain reliever. When serotonin is released, you may also see your mood increase, which is why serotonin is typically released by taking anti-depressants. Smiling can give you some of these same benefits without the need for expensive medication.
#2 – You are considered more attractive.
Whether you want to make more friends, get promoted at work, or find the love of your life, it helps to be viewed as attractive. The good news is that you don’t have to undergo plastic surgery or live in the gym to change how people view you. All you need to do is smile more and people will get an impression of you being sincere, authentic, warm, and attractive.
#3 – You can make people around you happier.
Smiles are contagious, so when a friend or colleague sees you smiling, they are likely to return a smile as well. Since smiling naturally makes people happier (due to the neuropeptides being released), you can positively impact those around you. Think about the people you enjoy having in your life. Those who make you happy or excited are likely to make the top of the list, while those who make you feel sullen or depressed may not get much of your time. If you become the type of person people want to be around, you are likely to do better at work and in social situations.
