January Blues? Smile More!

If you have been told to “smile” there is a good chance it’s the last thing you wanted to do. But smiling more does have many benefits for our health and wellbeing.
When you smile, your brain releases tiny molecules called neuropeptides to help fight off stress. Then other neurotransmitters like dopamine, serotonin and endorphins come into action. The endorphins act as a mild pain reliever, whereas serotonin is an anti-depressant. Smiling regularly helps the brain to rewire and change itself to make positivity the new standard. The more you smile the more positive and confident you become.

Many studies have shown that smiling substantially increases the capabilities of the immune system. By smiling you increase the presence of infection fighting antibodies and increase production of immune cells. This helps to ensure that your immune system functions effectively.

In the current times of Covid it is even more important to improve your immune system function and look after your mental wellbeing. More and more people just want to improve their smile and feel good about themselves.  It might be just not smiling for photographs or being self-conscious in the company of others.

Caring for your teeth and gums is incredibly important when you want to smile more often. If your smile is less than ideal, then you will feel embarassed about smiling and will consequently smile less.

Dental Hygienist

Our dental hygienist can help with regular teeth cleaning to remove tartar, stains and improving the health and appearance of your gums.

Cosmetic Dentist

There are many steps you can take to improve your smile and we can help you at Shine Dental & Facial in Twyford. Many common cosmetic procedures can greatly improve the appearance of your teeth and create a beautiful smile. For example, with dental veneers and composite bonding you are able to change the size, shape and colour of your teeth.  Professional teeth whitening can improve the colour of your teeth greatly and is also non-invasive.

Teeth Straightening

Many people are considering Clear Aligners to straighten teeth and there’s no such thing as being too old to have a beautiful natural looking straight smile. Whether you’re in your early 30s, mid-40s, or even late 50s, clear aligners can correct your teeth or bite problems.
