The Psychological Benefits of Having Healthy Teeth and a Beautiful Smile

The Psychological Benefits of Having Healthy Teeth and a Beautiful Smile

Now, more than ever, people are seriously obsessed with having an attractive appearance, which is why the health and beauty sector is already a multi-billion-dollar industry. While the concept of what is truly attractive may be subjective, the perception that a straight and healthy pearly-white smile as beautiful is arguably universal.

The majority of individuals are becoming increasingly mindful, not only of the state of their dental health but the physical appearance of their teeth as well since it greatly impacts their smile. The fixation on having healthy teeth and a beautiful smile may seem vain to some but studies have shown that it provides several psychological benefits such as the following:

  • It improves your confidence. If your teeth are straight, healthy, and white, you are more comfortable socializing with others. You are also more confident when you are talking and socializing because you know that you have an impressive smile. Those who have decaying and crooked teeth, on the other hand, are self-conscious and embarrassed to mingle with other people for fear of being ridiculed because of how their teeth look. They also tend to smile less for the same reason.
  • It makes you look younger. People who are always smiling tend to look much younger. According to studies, smiling exercises the facial muscles and improves the skin’s elasticity, thereby, delaying the appearance of wrinkles.
  • It makes you look more attractive. A study by the Universities of Leeds and Central Lancashire reveal that people find individuals with white and evenly spaced teeth more attractive and those with opposite qualities, less appealing. This is the reason why you should keep flashing that beautiful smile for everyone to see.

Considering the importance of having a beautiful smile as described above, it is important that your teeth are straight, cavity-free, and pearly-white. If your teeth need work, do not hesitate to call Madison Square Dentistry today so you can inquire about their cosmetic dentistry services.

"I've been going to Dr. Do for almost 10 years, and he's the best dentist that I've ever had. In fact, I drive 45 minutes each way to receive care from him at Madison Square. He and his staff are caring, gentle, and friendly. He takes great care of his patients and tries to do everything as painlessly as possible. He stays up to date with new techniques and equipment. I also appreciate that he has Saturday appointments available. I trust him and his staff completely!"

"Dr. Do is amazing after having many dentist I have found Dr Do to be the most professional and honest. Over two years now and no cavity. I have never felt pushed to buy anything here. Even when I asked about teeth bleaching he did not push me at all to make a purchase. My wife goes here too and has needed dental work she got a second opinion which confirmed Dr Do assessment. Couldn't ask for more."

I received a floral arrangement from Madison Square Dentistry after losing my grandmother (seriously what other dentist does that) they have been flexible with the extensive dental work my husband needed and treat us like family. Highly, highly recommend this organization."
