- It takes twelve muscles to smile and 113 muscles to frown.
- When you smile at another person, a warm, genuine smile, you tell that other person that he or she is attractive, pleasant, likeable, safe and secure in your estimation.
- A single smile is so powerful that it can often transform a person – a smile is infectious!
Smiles are so powerful that many long-term marriages and healthy relationships have begun with a single smile shared across a room. You’ve heard people say that, “When our eyes met, we both knew that we were meant for each other.”
THE BIG PAYOFF
- There is a big payoff for smiling at people. When you smile at another person, the physical action releases endorphins in your brain. Endorphins are called nature’s “happy drug.” They make you feel happy and raise your self-esteem.
- When you smile, you feel and act in a more personable way to everyone around you and exude a feeling of positive attitude. The most popular and influential people in most situations are people who genuinely smile at others when they meet them and greet them.
And if you don’t like your smile- fix it!
I am nearly at the end of my Invisalign treatment and can honestly say that my new smile is amazing. I feel more confident, I am less conscious of my smile and it shows. Friends and family have said that I am less miserable!
Maintain your smile
Keep your confidence by maintaining your smile. Good oral health is attractive, poor oral health not only affects your confidence but can have long term health implications.
Women v Men
In the battle of sexes men are named as the guiltiest culprits of bad oral health with bad breath, not brushing twice a day and stained teeth topping the list of complaints.
So bear in mind that it really doesn’t matter if the restaurant is the best, your suit is immaculate and your flowers are carefully chosen – a poor smile linked with poor oral hygiene will not impress your date.
