How can Cosmetic changes to your smile effect your overall wellbeing?

When a front tooth is repaired, a space is filled in, or cosmetic changes are made to teeth it will make a person smile different. The smile is larger and not trying to cover less than ideal teeth. Most people unconsciously do things with their smile, muscles, lip, face, or hands that cover dental problems or things they perceive as less esthetic.

Your overall confidence goes up when you like your appearance. The effects of smiling on our happiness and mental health are immense.  When you smile at another person, it brightens their spirit and provides a connection.  A smile is an instant connection and shows a person’s mood.

Smiling not only offers a mood boost but helps our bodies release cortisol and endorphins that provide numerous health benefits, including:

  • Reduced blood pressure.
  • Increased endurance.
  • Reduced pain.
  • Reduced stress.
  • Strengthened immune system.
