Why Visiting a Cosmetic Dentist Can Improve Your Outlook on Life

Cosmetic DentistIf you are looking for a reason to visit a cosmetic dentist and improve your smile, keep reading. There is scientific evidence to show that smiling can actually improve your life, or at least how you feel about it.

Smiling: It’s all about the science

Yes, improving your smile is something that can make you feel better about yourself. Improving your self-esteem should not be underrated since this can influence how you interact with others. However, there is much more going on from a scientific perspective every time you smile.

Smiling releases the molecules that allow your neurons to communicate with each other. Called neuropeptides, they allow you to feel happy and excited or sad and depressed. Smiling releases positive neuropeptides, also known as dopamine, serotonin, and endorphins. There are serious emotional, mental, and physical benefits associated with doing so. The list is long and includes:

Here are some of the benefits of Smiling:

  • A reduction in stress
  • The ability to lower your blood pressure and reduce your heart rate
  • Reduction in any pain you are experiencing, just like if you were taking medication
  • Increased feelings of happiness and overall well-being
  • Improvement in your mood

As a cosmetic dentist, we know that when you smile, you also look more attractive and friendly to everyone you encounter. This can naturally lead to benefits in your social and professional life. This is because when you see a smiling face, it activates your orbitofrontal cortex, and you can actually feel happier or rewarded because you saw someone smile.

When you combine the fact that smiles are contagious, every time you smile, you are helping others feel better as their brain releases endorphins.

Scientifically, smiling can actually make your life and your world a better place.
