Research also suggests that the appearance of the smile, and the act of smiling, offers physiological benefit, as well. Specific positive consequences of smiling, as concluded in one university study, include:

The world can sometimes feel full of negativity. Smiling is a great way to offset a heavy mood within yourself and those around you. We can help you want to smile more by addressing the concerns that you have about oral health or the appearance of your teeth. Contact our Burke office at (703)750-9404.
