Though cosmetic dentistry focuses on the aesthetics of your smile, it may improve your overall oral health as well. Even if you are not aware of it, an askew tooth or overbite may be throwing off your balance and be putting extra stress on your teeth or jaw muscles. Cosmetic dentistry may alleviate some pain and discomfort you have been experiencing due to improper alignment.
There are many other benefits to improving the appearance of your smile. Some of the positive outcomes of cosmetic dentistry include:
When you love your smile you are likely to show it off more often. Studies have shown that the simple act of smiling can put you, and others around you, in a better mood. Scientific American published an article that goes over how smiling can improve your mood, the mood of others, and even decrease feelings of pain. The more you smile the better you and everyone else will feel!
Per Psychology Today, smiles are contagious and make people feel better. When you’re proud of your teeth you’re likely to smile more and in turn influence others around you to smile more as well. Their smiles will make them feel happier and create a welcoming and friendly environment.
Cosmetic dental procedures tend to rejuvenate patients and leave them smiling prouder and bigger than ever before. The journal Motivation and Emotion published an article that found people who had bigger smiles were more stable in their marriages and interpersonal skills. Your new welcoming smile may even help you forge stronger relationships with new and old friends that can last a lifetime.
A good looking smile is usually a good working smile. By balancing your bite and evening out the tension in your mouth you allow it to function better. It’s important to your overall health for your mouth to function properly. If you are not properly chewing your food long enough because your teeth, gums, or jaw are in pain, you might not be absorbing all the nutrients your food has to offer. When food is chewed longer it is broken down into smaller particles that are absorbed quicker by the body. Also, the longer you chew the longer it will take you to finish eating. Research has shown that eating slowly can help you eat less and in turn increase weight loss or reduce weight gain. In a study conducted by a professor at the University of Rhode Island people actually ate around ten percent less calories when they ate slower. Obesity is a huge health problem that affects everyone across the world and can have irreversible repercussions. With a proper functioning mouth you can help yourself live a healthier, and potentially longer, life.
With the help of our cosmetic dentistry team, you can start feeling more confident and proud of your smile. The more you show off your great smile the longer you might live. A study conducted by a professor at Wayne State University discovered that the intensity of smiles in pictures correlated to life spans. Those with stronger smiles tended to live longer than those with weaker smiles or no smiles at all. With the help of cosmetic dentistry you may be able to smile on and strong into your twilight years.
A great smile can help you focus and succeed in life. Professors at the University of California, Berkeley conducted an experiment in which they analyzed pictures of women and checked in with them at various stages of their lives. It turns out that the women who had expressions that seemed to reflect more positive emotions also ended up feeling more capable, focused, organized, goal-oriented, and less prone to negativity. Your beaming smile can help you lead the life you always wanted.
