How To Find Confidence In Your Smile

Smiling plays a huge part in our social interactions. It can make people feel good, offer comfort, and even reduce stress. The 123Dentist.com Community Network encourage our patients to feel confident about their smiles so they can show off their beautiful teeth and feel good about their oral health. But when you lack confidence in your smile, it can be hard to feel comfortable smiling regularly. So here are some tips that might help you find confidence in your smile so you can have the many benefits associated with smiling regularly.

  1. Practise your smile—practising your smile alone in front of a mirror can help you find angles that best compliment your features and help you find confidence in your beautiful smile.
  2. Become comfortable with smiling regularly—if you are not a person that is used to smiling regularly, developing a habit of smiling regularly can help you develop confidence in your smile. A lot of people don’t smile because of the misconceptions around smiling (ex. “smiling makes you seem more vulnerable”). On the contrary, smiling humanizes you and makes you seem more approachable.
  3. Genuinely smile—when you’re genuinely feeling happy and you smile, it’s apparent to the people around you and makes you associate the genuine feeling of happiness with smiling, which can elevate your confidence in your smile.
  4. Maintain good oral hygiene—you may fear smiling because you fear something is stuck in between your teeth or that you have bad breath.  Keeping a good oral hygiene can help keep your mouth fresh and clean, making you more confident in your smile.
  5. Enjoy the feedback you get from smiling—smiling has a number of benefits. It can make the other people around you happy, it can help reduce stress, and it can even help you during a job interview. The more you smile, the more you can enjoy the feedback that you get from it, which will help you gain confidence in your smile.
