How a Healthy Smile Can Boost Confidence

Nothing feels as good as a natural smile. But did you know that a smile can boost your self-confidence? Learn more about the relationship between your smile and your confidence, then find out how our Tampa dentist can help.

How a Smile Boosts Self-Confidence

A smile is one of the first things people see–when you’re not wearing a mask, that is!

While you can always “smize” or smile with your eyes, there is no real substitute for your natural smile when it comes to nonverbal communication. A bright full smile makes a positive impression. It puts people at ease and communicates friendliness and openness. Personally, your smile is how you connect with others and make friends. Professionally, a big smile coupled with a powerful handshake is the secret to influencing others and winning positive regard.

Unfortunately, not everyone loves their natural smile. You may feel self-conscious about your smile if your teeth are crooked, gapped, chipped, or discolored. There are ways to restore the integrity of your natural smile, so you don’t need to let a cosmetic issue hold you back from making others feel welcome or feeling your best in your skin. With a healthy smile, you may find that you’re smiling more often and showing your teeth in photos, creating more memories where you’re able to look and feel your best.

How a Smile Reflects Self-Care

When you feel good about yourself, you take care of yourself. Self care is a huge wellness trend and for good reasons–everyone should look and feel their absolute best from the inside out!
By brushing your teeth, you remove bacteria and freshen breath. Your natural breath is the cornerstone to a healthy relationship not just with yourself but with others: when your breath smells nice, people will want to get close to you and talk to you. When you have poor oral hygiene, your breath actually smells unpleasant and others will notice!

Healthy, straight, clean white teeth reflect good hygiene. If you take care of your teeth, you take care of your body and others take notice. So if you’re looking to form new relationships in the year ahead, perhaps even with a special someone, remember that oral hygiene is fundamental. Others will notice the way your teeth look and gauge from your oral health other fundamentals of your physical health, hygiene, and wellness habits.

If you’re a morning coffee kind of person, your teeth may have dark stains. A tooth whitening treatment can actually lighten the hue of stained teeth and restore the brightness to your smile.
