A healthy-looking, white smile goes a long way, giving your whole face a younger-looking and rejuvenated aesthetic. However, there are other reasons why teeth whitening treatment is a life-alternating treatment where your day-to-day life is concerned. Let’s take a look at a few examples below, some of which, you might not have considered….
It’ll get you smiling more often
When we feel unsatisfied with our smile, it’s natural to want to smile as little as possible in some social situations and even at home in front of the mirror. Having a smile you can be proud of can actually trigger you to smile more often. Repressing your smile has an impact on your well-being and happiness, as the chemicals, known as endorphins (responsible for happiness), aren’t released because you’re not smiling. Who knew, simply having the desire to smile more will boost your emotional well-being!
You’ll have more pride in your taking care of your teeth post-treatment
It can be very easy to fall into a “what’s the point in trying?” mentality once your smile attains a certain level of discolouration, leaving you feeling demoralised. Getting your teeth whitened can give you the motivation to want to maintain healthy-looking teeth thereafter – the amazing-looking results will give you the drive to keep them looking fantastic.
Make a great first impression
A great-looking smile can make or break a first impression and if you’ve got a job interview coming up, it could set you apart from another candidate. Research suggests that adults think a smile is the most memorable feature after they meet someone for the first time so with this in mind, consider how a healthy-smile can help you cultivate great relationships, professional and personal.
Feel more confident
We all feel better about ourselves when we’re happy in our skin and this often involves looking healthy and well. When we’re comfortable with the way we look, we feel more confident and able to excel at everyday tasks and challenging. Invest in your well-being by investing in your smile!
