Did you know that simply smiling, no matter how you’re feeling inside, will automatically begin to make you feel better? Research shows that our bodies respond in a positive way to lips that are upturned in a smile, even one that is not necessarily heartfelt. So, when you feel bad, smile, and you will begin to feel better!
Why some people don’t smile.
Some folks hesitate to smile because they feel their smile is not very attractive. They may be missing teeth, have crooked teeth, or have protruding teeth, among other dental issues. Problems like these can make someone feel self-conscious and keep them from smiling. Not only does this impact that person’s appearance, but it can also affect his or her mood.
Improve your smile.
Help is available for those who are insecure about the appearance of their teeth. You don’t have to live forever with jagged teeth, or those that are chipped or missing. In fact, with the help of a skilled orthodontist, you can transform your smile into a beautiful display of confidence and radiance. With the help of braces and other treatments, teeth and oral structures like the jaw or soft palate can be adjusted, and teeth can be moved, to create a brand new smile that will maximize your facial features.
Some people are self-conscious about wearing braces. They think metal brackets and wires will make them look strange or funny. The truth is that others hardly notice. Invisalign is a type of treatment that is almost invisible. Other people celebrate treatment by wearing colorful brackets and wires to represent school colors or fashionable accents. Whether choosing Invisalign or another type of braces, a qualified orthodontist will explain treatment options.
