Smile for Self-Confidence with the Help of Cosmetic Dentistry
A healthy, attractive smile is one that people are happy to share, but an unattractive one, or one that has visible damage, can make us conceal our smile. Unfortunately, hiding our smile can be bad for our self-confidence.
You know that smiles can make a difference in the impression you get from someone. A smile makes all the difference between a negative impression and a positive one, and the same is true when you share your smile: people automatically respond better to you. But if you’re not happy with your smile, you may withhold it, afraid that it will make others think worse of you.
However when we hide–or censor–our smile, we punish–or censure–ourselves. This punishment comes in several different forms. Not only are we subjecting ourselves to negative responses from those around us, we’re building up negative emotions.
