There are so many reasons to smile — a funny joke, a cute kitten, a new baby, and many, many others. But at my El Paso dental office, we want to give you a few more reasons to smile big and wide.
There’s a little bit more involved with smiling than just the simple motion we’re used to. When we smile, our brains produce and release more of the “happy” hormones known as endorphins. Serotonin levels also rise, making us feel relaxed. Smiling can even help keep us healthy since it increases antibodies and white blood cells, both of which help boost the immune system and fight off germs.
You can actually share all those health benefits of smiling by sharing a grin with those around you. Smiles have an unexplainable effect on people. When we see someone flash their pearly whites, whether a friend or complete stranger, we naturally and unconsciously return the favor.
That’s right. Smiles are, in fact, contagious.
There’s another neat thing about smiles. They’re universal and there’s no room for misinterpretation due to language or cultural barriers. What’s this mean? It means smiling is quite powerful. Smiling at people you encounter initiates that natural response to smile back, allowing not only yourself to access the health benefits of smiling, but offering everyone else the same.
There are a number of things that can make us uncomfortable with the way our smile looks. Whether it’s because teeth are a little crooked, there’s a gap between them, or they’re not quite white enough for you, there are ways to help. Cosmetic dentistry from your dentist in El Paso can transform any smile through a variety of treatments including:
