Smiles Are Contagious

Studies show that our natural reaction to facial expressions is to mimic them. Whether it’s a smile or a frown, our bodies are prone to copy them. This reaction is heightened by eye contact. Many people believe that mimicking facial expressions allows us to empathize with others and better understand what they are feeling.

A Smile Implies Friendliness

It’s no surprise that people who are sporting a smile are much more approachable than those who are either expressionless or frowning. This gives your peers the confidence to approach you and spark a conversation and certainly makes others feel more comfortable in your presence. You never know what a smile can do for your social networking!

The Power of a Beautiful Smile

If you’re not confident in your smile, it’s unlikely you’ll be flashing it to those around you. That’s where we come in. Keeping up with your preventive dental care ensures that your teeth stay healthy and prevents you from needing extensive restorative work performed in the future. If you have a few cosmetic flaws, we offer a number of services to correct them. From a simple teeth whitening session to complete smile transformations with veneers, we’ve got you covered. We all strive to put our best smile forward—let us make that a reality for you!
