even when you’re down can make you happy again?

Smiling Research

There have been many studies on the power of smiles to predict the future well-being of individuals. For example, Wayne State University researchers studied baseball cards to find out that longevity related to the qualities in each player’s smile. UC Berkeley scientists instituted a similar study looking at yearbook photos to track the well-being and success of previous students based on their smiles. The more wide and natural a smile was in college, the more success that person was likely to have in career and marriage. One study in Great Britain focused on the therapeutic effects of smiling. The same types of feelings of happiness which came from being told a participant had won $25,000 were also elicited through smiles. Benefits of smiling included lower blood pressure and a reduction of stress hormones.

Cosmetic Dentistry for Confident Smile

The best way to ensure that you are flashing plenty of happy grins is to take care of your teeth and gums. If tooth decay, injuries, or genetics have made it difficult for you to feel comfortable with your smile, consult with the Riverside dentists on possible treatments. Dental implants, porcelain veneers, teeth whitening, bonding, and invisible braces (such as Invisalign) are common cosmetic procedures for offering you the smile of your dreams.
