Boost Your Mood With A Smile Makeover

Everyone knows that feeling great makes you want to smile. But did you also know that smiling can make you feel great?

The best part is, the smile doesn’t even need to be genuine. Real or faked, the effects of smiling are the same. Psychological scientists at the University of Kansas looked into the benefits of smiling on patient’s health and stress levels. They found that smiling releases dopamine which helps increase your feelings of happiness. It also releases serotonin which helps reduces stress and lowers your heart rate during tense situations. This can help decrease your blood pressure and some studies suggest that smiling more frequently can lead to living a longer life.

So how do you feel about your smile? Some patients feel that cosmetic dentistry improvements to their smiles are just that- “cosmetic”- and therefore unnecessary. And while an updated smile does take aesthetics into account, it can do more than just make your smile look more beautiful. It really can help improve your overall health. The trick is figuring out which cosmetic dentistry procedure is right for you? Maybe you have gaps in your teeth you would like to close? Try Invisalign clear braces. Are your teeth discolored? Teeth whitening is one of the easiest and most dramatic smile makeover procedures. Porcelain veneers are another favorite at our cosmetic dental offices. These small thin veneers perfectly match your surrounding teeth and give your smile a more even and natural look.
