Know How You Can Get A Confident Smile

Know How You Can Get A Confident Smile
Posted on 07/04/2022

Are you a person who smiles regularly? It's wonderful to be happy and confident with your smile. But what about those who don't smile as often? Perhaps it isn't because they are unhappy; it may simply be due to a lack of confidence in their smile.

Some people don’t smile because of misconceptions about smiling - such as “smiling makes you appear more vulnerable.” However, it’s much the opposite. Smiling humanizes you and makes you appear more approachable. The presence of a confident smile is associated with genuine feelings of happiness, and it can actually draw others to you. Smiling encourages trust and strengthens relationships.

There are, in fact, quite a number of benefits to feeling good about your teeth and oral health. While it’s readily apparent that having a smile you can be confident in will help with many social situations, it could also help in your career success as well.

Expressing confidence and sharing a friendly smile are key factors in job interviews, or when communicating with management, employees, or the public. Believe it or not, several experiments noted online have shown that the smile of a person can impact not only things such as securing a new job or getting a job promotion but even the chance of getting offered a higher salary.

Smiling has been proven to increase productivity during tasks and has even been shown to reduce stress. When you’re confident in your smile, you naturally smile more often, triggering a host of benefits you can enjoy.

Those who have studied the effects of tooth alignment and enamel color in teens and young adults have noted these can cause self-esteem to rise or plummet. Not surprisingly, teens with stained, crowded, or generally unpleasant smiles tended to be more embarrassed, self-conscious, and shy.

So what does one do if they are not confident in their smile? It may seem like an obvious answer - “talk with your dentist.” But you may be surprised by how many suffer in silence, never expressing their desire to explore options for improving their smile.
