Make a Resolution to Smile More
The new year has just begun, and there is still plenty of time to commit to a New
Year’s resolution. Some resolutions you may be thinking of might involve career
advancements, weight loss, or an adventure you want to take. Have you ever considered
making a resolution to smile more? This may seem small, but the results will surprise you.
All of your other ideas might be great, however, this resolution will be simple enough to
actually stick to.
Why Smile More?
Why should smiling more be on your list of New Year’s resolutions you might ask?
Many different studies have shown that smiling has a variety of different positive effects on
your life. Smiling can reduce stress, make you feel more confident, and even release
hormones to help you look and feel more positive. Though it may take more muscles to
smile than frown, the pros definitely outweigh the cons. And hey- what was that resolution
about losing weight that you were thinking about?
Take Care of Your Smile
If you are not smiling as much as you’d like, have you ever wondered why? There
might be a reason for not liking the way your teeth look. This is incredibly common, and
many people feel stuck with a smile they don’t feel confident in. So in order to make a
resolution to smile more, you must start taking better care of your smile. The more you take
care of your smile, the more your smile will take care of you.
Start by establishing a good dental hygiene routine. Brush and floss morning and
night, and stay away from foods and drinks that encourage decay and staining. Start seeing
your dentist every 6 months for routine check-ups. These small changes will set you on the
road to your dream smile in no time.
It is definitely possible that your smile cannot be helped by small changes on your
own, and you might need to contact your dentist. At Toland Dental, our experienced staff is
trained and ready to give you the support you need.

Once you receive the necessary care plan catered to your individual smile, the days
will only get brighter. Confidence through smiling can improve your social and professional
life more than you ever thought possible.
