A great smile doesn’t just make you more attractive to others — research suggests turning that frown upside down is actually great for your overall health too. Smiling and laughing have been shown to have a huge number of positive benefits for both your mental and physical health. But, unfortunately, many of us aren’t quite happy with our smiles. You may be self-conscious about broken, missing, crooked or discoloured teeth, gum disease or a gummy smile. If that sounds like you, read on to find out why a grin is great for your health and how your cosmetic dentist in Donvale could have you smiling again in no time.
All you need to do is smile
When you smile — even if it’s just a fake smile — the contraction of certain facial muscles triggers a release of chemicals called endorphins. These endorphins have a number of pretty impressive health benefits. Not only do they make you feel good, but they also help to lower your stress levels. Plus, endorphins can even act as a natural pain killer. Endorphins released through smiling also work to increase blood flow and lower blood pressure, so they’re great for your cardiovascular health too. What’s more, cracking a smile also releases another important brain chemical called serotonin, which helps to regulate inflammation in the body and boosts your immune system.
