A Simple Smile Can Make a Big Impact

A Simple Smile Can Make a Big Impact Cosmetic Dentistry Smiling is such a simple act. So simple that even babies do it while they’re still in the womb.

Although effortless, smiling is actually a pretty powerful action. At our Wilmington dental office, we know that the easy act of smiling can actually make quite an impact on your health and the health of others.

How Smiling Boosts Your Health

There’s a whole science behind what smiling does to our confidence, our happiness, and our overall well-being. When you smile, your body naturally produces antibodies and boosts white blood cells. These two things in combination with each other are key to a healthy immune system. Smiling also affects our brains, causing it to pump out more endorphins to make us feel happy, and serotonin to relax us.

How Smiling Helps Others

A smile is contagious. Numerous studies have shown that when humans see another person smiling, we experience a natural, subconscious reaction to smile back. So when we smile, those around us smile too and, as a result, reap all the health benefits of feeling happier and more relaxed.

Smiling is also universal — it knows no boundaries and there are no cultural or language barriers. It means the same thing in every country. It’s one thing we can use to help everyone around us, no matter where we’re from, what language we speak, or what background we’re from. That’s some pretty powerful stuff.

Going to the Dentist is not on my top 10 list of things I look forward to or enjoy doing. It is not even in the top 100. But going to Limestone Dental does make it less of a chore. The office is neat and inviting. The staff are very friendly and caring. The atmosphere is relaxing and the comfy chairs and TV almost make me forget that this in not my favorite place to be. I almost forget that someone is in my face with their fingers in my mouth! I like that the Drs. take time to talk to me, explain things and they LISTEN. I have referred friends and co-workers to them and will continue to do so.
