When you are confident in your smile, when you know that it is showing great teeth that are well cared for, then you are not going to be so self-conscious about smiling. As a result, you will have a tendency to smile much more often.

Try this as an exercise: walk around for one week and smile all of the time, regardless of how you feel about your teeth. Don’t worry about whether they are crooked, they are chipped, or whether you have stains on your teeth. Just smile and try to forget about how you feel about it.

If you can manage to do this for one week, you will actually feel much better about yourself. People will be reacting to you in a much different way as well. It doesn’t really matter whether you have crooked teeth or not, when you smile more often, people are going to be drawn to you. That is because the smile is a sign of not only confidence, but of a positive attitude. When you have a positive attitude, it is infectious and contagious. People want to be around you.

When people approach you more often as a result of your willingness to smile more frequently, it will help to boost your confidence overall.

Many research studies have been conducted through the years that point to this very fact: the more a person smiles, the more confidence they possess.

That is why it is so important to take care of your oral health to ensure that you have a great smile that you are comfortable with. The more you smile, the more confident you will become and that can have an incredible and positive impact on the rest of your life as well.
