A SMILE’S POSITIVE EFFECTS
If you feel so self-conscious about your teeth that you stifle your smile, you owe it to yourself to visit the dentist. Not only does necessary remedial dental care make you more attractive to others, it can also actually make you happier. Recent research into the mind-body connection has led to the discovery that the simple act of smiling sends a message to the brain that lets it know that you are happy. In response, the brain releases “endorphins,” which are chemicals that produce feelings of euphoria. So strong is this cause and effect that merely imitating the act of smiling (by clenching a pencil between the teeth) produces the same positive effect as smiling itself.
