A smile can brighten the darkest day!


A smile can brighten the darkest day!

A smile can be just what some people need to see to bring some happiness to their day. When people in helping professions such as medicine and teaching greet their patients and students with smiles, those people instantly feel more at ease. But studies also show that a good smile can lead to more success in life.

Smile Research

A 2012 study found that when more than 1,000 Americans were shown photos of people with straight and crooked teeth, the study participants perceived the people with straighter teeth to be wealthier and more successful. They also said they were more likely to go on a date with them. Almost 75 percent of the participants said that a good smile made them trust a person more than if that person were well-dressed or had a nice car.

Smiling is Contagious

A smile can make both the smile”r” and the people they are smiling at happier. Unfortunately, crooked teeth might make a person feel self-conscious about their smile. They might try to smile without showing their teeth or avoid smiling altogether.
