A great-looking smile is usually a functional smile. By balancing your bite and evening out the tension in your mouth, you allow it to function better. If you are not able to eat healthy foods, or not chewing long enough because of discomfort, you may experience more digestive issues and lack certain nutrients to help your body heal well. Studies have also shown the longer you chew your food, the longer it takes to eat, which in turn makes you feel fuller, faster. This can help prevent weight gain. In a study conducted by a professor at the University of Rhode Island, people ate around ten percent less calories when they ate slower. With a proper functioning mouth, you can help yourself live a healthier, and potentially longer, life.
A study conducted by a professor at Wayne State University discovered that the intensity of smiles in pictures correlated to life spans. Individuals that had stronger smiles, tended to live longer than those that smiled less, or not at all. With the help of cosmetic dentistry, you may be able to smile brightly for years to come!
A great smile can help you focus and succeed in life. Professors at the University of California, Berkeley conducted an experiment which analyzed pictures of women and followed them through various stages of their lives. Women that reflected more positive emotions also reported feeling more fulfilled in their daily lives personally and professionally.
