Are You Aware of the Power of a Smile?
Office Manager – Jessica – after her 6 Month Smiles Treatment
In fact, smiling is an amazing asset. Did you know we even begin to smile while still in the womb? It is an innate expression and researchers have also discovered that smiling stimulates the reward mechanisms in our brain, bringing us more pleasure than eating a bar of a chocolate and without all those calories!
Smiling Creates a Healthier, More Likable You
Smiling helps us feel healthier, reducing the levels of stress hormones including cortisol and adrenaline, while boosting happy hormones which can enhance your moods, such as endorphins and dopamine.
It is also contagious, suppressing the control we usually have over our facial muscles. If you’re still not convinced about the power of a smile, another study discovered that when you smile you’re perceived as more courteous, competent, and more likable!
A Life-Changing New Smile
On average, more than a third of us will smile at least twenty times a day while children can smile up to 400 times a day, but not everyone smiles so frequently. More than 10% of people will smile fewer than five times a day. It’s not necessarily that these people are unhappy but often lack the confidence to smile due to the appearance of their teeth. Here at Hedgecock Dental, we understand the power of a smile. Every day we help patients regain the courage to smile freely—patients like our very own office manager, Jessica.
Having spent years hiding her crooked teeth, Jessica described the experience as “absolutely life-changing,” and now we can’t stop her from smiling. After completing her treatment, Jessica’s teeth are beautifully aligned, and she has a healthy smile she is proud to show off.
What Is Six Month Smiles®?
Many of the cosmetic dental treatments we offer can help correct a smile, just like Jessica’s Six Month Smiles treatment. Six Months Smiles is an orthodontic braces system that can discreetly straighten teeth in an average of just six months. These braces are virtually invisible and can provide a conservative and highly predictable treatment outcome.
Why Six Month Smiles?
Using fixed braces can be advantageous because they are working continuously to straighten teeth, moving them with a high degree of precision. Unlike ordinary brace brackets, Six Month Smiles uses Lucid-Lok® brackets which align the tooth and the tooth root at the same time, utilizing low forces, creating a more comfortable patient experience. Due to the advanced technology of Six Month Smiles and focusing on the teeth that show when you smile, treatment times are typically shorter than traditional braces or aligner therapy.
