The Close Ties between Your Smile and Your Self-Confidence
A beautiful, confident smile is an enormous asset. When you know your teeth look bright and healthy, you are apt to smile more, which helps you feel good about yourself, and your confidence soars.
The Power of Smiling
What happens when you smile? For one thing, a smile releases endorphins, serotonin, and dopamine, so your reason for smiling in the first place is enhanced by feelings of well-being. Another benefit is that smiling can also lower your heart rate and blood pressure.
Of course, you also look good when you smile, and others are more likely to view you as being attractive, sincere, and reliable. Studies have shown that others believe attractive people have better prospects for prestigious occupations, happier marriages, and increased personal fulfillment.
And smiling doesn’t just help you look and feel good; smiling can denote happiness, joy, pleasure, and sociability. So, when you smile, those around you are more likely to smile, boosting their spirits as well!
Step Up to a More Confident Smile
Even minor imperfections like chipped or stained teeth can make you feel self-conscious enough to want to hide your smile. Fortunately, today there are many affordable, conservative options like teeth whitening and cosmetic dental bonding to correct these flaws and give you a more confident appearance.
If you are unhappy with the shape, size, position, or spacing of teeth, another option to consider is porcelain veneers. A veneer is a thin slice of tooth-shaped porcelain that is bonded to the front surface of your teeth to improve their appearance by providing a new surface.
Cosmetic dentistry options at our Northport, NY dental office also include restorative treatments like all-porcelain crowns and bridges, dentures, dental implants, and Invisalign.
