Have you ever heard? “You don’t stop laughing because you grow old. You grow old because you stop laughing.”
But it can be a tough task to smile when you woke up on the wrong side of the bed, struggled through that morning commute to work or are not happy with your teeth. As you grow up to become an adult, you often tend to lose the habit of smiling.
However, the truth is that by choosing to smile, happy changes can occur immediately, both internally and externally. Every time you smile, a number of physiological changes occur in your body, without you even being consciously aware of it. Endorphins are released when you smile and make you feel happier and less stressed.
In addition to improved health, smiling and laughing can have a positive effect on other areas of your life. In today’s world where your appearance, self-confidence and success are closely linked, it is crucial to smile.

So how can straight teeth make you more successful?
Having straight teeth makes you feel more confident and open to smiling. Smiling regularly increases your chances of succeeding in different areas of your life such as in your work environment.
It’s the best welcoming gesture: It makes you look kind and more open to social networking. You can meet a lot of interesting people just by smiling.
It makes you look more trustworthy: There are different types of smiles - sincere, false, the mocking, etc. If the smile is sincere you will look more genuine and trustworthy.
It can enhance your business: Sales and deals can be made due to a simple smile. You’re more likely to buy something from a sales representative who smiles and looks happy rather than someone who doesn’t.
It makes you look enthusiastic at work: An employee who smiles is understood to be more enthusiastic about his tasks, more productive and committed to deliver results.
It makes you look more confident: A huge smile on your face at all times regardless you are given a hard time or not, it makes you look more confident and prepared even in the face of difficulties.
It can brighten someone else’s day: Just one smile can work as an energy boost and make a difference to someone at the office who is having a difficult day.
The question now is “do you avoid smiling”?
Some people say that having straight teeth, and a beautiful smile is the best accessory, but not everyone is confident in the appearance of their teeth. Misaligned teeth can undermine your confidence and make you smile less.
If you are worried about crooked teeth or any other orthodontic condition and thinking that straight teeth and a healthy, natural and successful smile is just something for the lucky few or younger ones, think twice. Although it may seem like an impossible dream, living your life with a straight smile is much more achievable than you might think.
Maybe you are worried that by choosing to straighten your teeth you will have to wear traditional braces with metallic brackets. Luckily, in the 21st Century, there is so much more to teeth straightening than just obvious metal “train-track” braces.
Nowadays more and more people are doing smile makeovers by getting their teeth straighten with the latest techniques such as Invisalign, or lingual braces. The options are wider than ever and adults can get straight teeth in a discreet way. It just depends on your specific dental needs.
Braces are no longer just for children or teenagers. Both adults and children can benefit from orthodontic braces that are able to move teeth to a more aesthetically pleasing position, in a gentle manner and very quickly.
In some cases you can have beautiful straight teeth within 6 months or less.
