We all want a beautiful smile, or at least we know we should have one. But have you ever thought about why you want a beautiful smile, or what it could do for you? Let’s take a look at the top 5 benefits of a beautiful smile.
1. Smiles make you look more successful.
According to WebMD, a beautiful smile can make you look more successful, something we all strive for. People with genuinely happy smiles experience better life outcomes, including happier marriages and an enhanced sense of well-being.
2. A beautiful smile makes you more attractive.
A recent study discovered that people with white, evenly spaced teeth are considered more attractive. Furthermore, the study indicated that beautiful teeth are a sign of good health and strong genetics, features that help attract other people.
3. You’ll smile and laugh more, which releases more endorphins, which, in turn, makes you feel even better.
If you have a beautiful smile you’re more likely to let that smile shine. When you do, you’ll release more endorphins. Endorphins are chemicals in the brain that help us feel better, sending a rush of positive emotions through our body. Furthermore, endorphins inhibit cortisol, which is your stress hormone. In the end, more endorphins = less stress.
4. Smiles lower your heart rate and blood pressure (even if they’re fake).
It turns out that smiling, even if it’s fake, can lower your heart rate and blood pressure in stressful situations, according to a study published in Psychological Science. While smiling may not cure chronic heart disease, most of us will take any help we can get.
5. Smiling boosts your immune system, making you healthier and happier.
The act of smiling causes our bodies to relax. Relaxed bodies are better equipped to fight off viruses, bacteria, and sickness. Therefore, more smiles = less sickness.
In the end, smiling enhances your life, both cosmetically and physically, and that begs the question: Do you have the smile you’ve always wanted?
