How Our Smile Can Affect Our Lives

Article By Remarkable Smiles Orthodontics.  

A confident smile is one that is open and inviting. We can smile with confidence when our teeth and gums are healthy. We all know someone who has crooked teeth, receding gums, or teeth that are stained. They are often self-conscious about how their teeth appear to others, therefore they avoid smiling. When smiling or laughing, people with crooked teeth often put their hand over their mouth. They’re self-conscious about their smile.

This type of individual may even use their discomfort with smiling as an excuse to avoid new adventures. Someone with healthy teeth and gums and a great smile isn’t afraid to approach the company president and say hello. They aren’t afraid to ask for a raise or a promotion. Their self-assurance pervades all aspects of their lives, even their personal lives. Someone who has a confident smile is more likely to seek out and discover better quality romantic partners than someone with crooked or damaged teeth.

New studies have been published recently that back up these facts. Successful people have an excellent smile that is contagious, regardless of their occupation, gender, or age. It’s a smile that makes you feel at ease and encourages you to believe in yourself. It can even have a physiological effect on others, which is rather powerful.

We gaze into someone’s face the instant we shake their hand. Often, we make internal judgments about them depending on the way they smile at us. It’s such an integral part of who we are as people that it may even prevent you from achieving your goals in life.
