Why a Smile is Good for You and Everyone Around You

Dr. Ivan Valcarenghi explains that cosmetic dentistry could be what you need if you never feel like smiling.

A smile is contagious. When you smile, people smile back. Smiling, even if you are faking it, makes people feel good. Putting on a happy face can also lead to real happiness, amusement, and joy.

When you smile on purpose, you are changing your brains chemistry. When you smile you can help yourself and others deal with anxiety and depression.

Laughing and smiling can reduce stress and when you consider that mood and body language are connected, it just makes good sense to laugh or smile on purpose. Grinning relaxes the muscles in your face while calming your nervous system.
Laughing releases endorphins and sends additional oxygen to your brain. Laughing can also help lower high blood pressure and stress, and can be a real mood booster.

When you smile, you are bonding with others. Even a fake laugh or smile can turn contagious. Try getting a group together and ask everyone to fake laugh. You can bet there won’t be a straight face in the room.

Smiling also has powerful benefits to your well being and your overall health, however, if your smile isn’t something you like to show off, it could make you feel worse.
