The science behind a beautiful smile

Dr. Curtis Couch DDS - The science behind a beautiful smile – A beautiful and healthy smile presents a range of benefits both external and internal

A smile is perhaps the single most powerful human expression

Studies have proven that a healthy and warm smile can improve self-confidence, influence how others perceive and think about us, and directly increase our success within any working or social environment. A healthy and beautiful smile also has numerous internal health benefits.

Let’s take a closer look at the science behind a beautiful smile…

For the first impression

The bottom line is this – first impressions are important. It only takes a quick glance, just a few seconds for someone to evaluate and form an opinion about you, it sounds superficial but it’s a reality.

One of the first things a person will look to is your smile. A beautiful, healthy smile will convey happiness and confidence; two qualities sure to get you off to a great start in any social or working environment.

For our internal health

When we have a positive experience, neuronal signals are sent from the cortex of our brain to the brainstem and then toward the smiling muscles on our face. When we smile, a positive feedback loop goes back into the brain further reinforcing the joyful feelings.

It’s hard to argue that a beautiful and healthy smile breeds trust, makes you genuinely happy, and helps you live a longer and healthier life.

Gaining the confidence to smile more often

While a smile has the potential to bring all of the above benefits, it can only do so if the smile is genuine. Often, people will easily gauge the difference between a fake and genuine smile. Similarly, our brain can distinguish very easily between the two.

A cosmetic dental procedure can provide you with the confidence and encouragement to smile genuinely and regularly.
