What Is Your Smile?


There is an old saying that a good smile “warms hearts and opens doors.”

A smile is one of the things that make a first impression of you in the minds of others. It is one of the first things that others notice about you. So it makes sense to want your smile to be the absolute best that it can be. People across cultures understand the value of a smile and we know that smiling itself can help increase positivity. Its one thing that is truly universal among humans. In any social interaction, people will intuitively gravitate towards those of us who smile.

A smile exudes confidence. Studies have shown that a white, aligned smile signals that someone is healthy, smart and financially secure. A warm expression with a smile can make you appear much more approachable and friendly. A smile is an effective ice breaker. A smile can be contagious and may evoke a similar expression from the person you’re meeting.

There are many benefits of having a healthy white smile, such as improved self-esteem. You’re more likely to smile and show off your pearly whites and the more you smile the better you feel about yourself.

A whiter brighter smile also gives you a more youthful appearance. Yellow discolored teeth can be a sign of age, while having whiter teeth can make you look 5-10 years younger. There is evidence that a beautiful white smile has a direct effect on successful interpersonal interactions, both socially and professionally.
