Smiling Will Help People to Remember Your Name

Posted on 4/25/2016 by Dr. Andrew Zeiger
A woman happy and showing her new bright white smile.Do you have an event coming up soon in which you are hoping to make a good impression? Or, do you feel that you don't make a good first impression because your embarrassment over your teeth cause you to keep your mouth shut rather than smiling?

A good smile is a powerful impression that can increase the chances that you'll leave a lasting impression on the people that you meet.

Why Are Smiles Remembered So Well?

We have a lot of facial expressions that we use every day, but a smile is one that sticks out. They are most quickly unrecognized by other people and they can be noticed from far away, but despite the fact that smiles are distinct, that's not why we remember them.

It is thought that smiles are positive and are rewarding to both the person that is smiling and to the person that is looking at that smile. When someone sees you smile, they will experience a good feeling, as well, and the brain's reward center will remember your face because it sparked joy.

What if You Don't Like Your Smile?

Research has shown that smiling can make a big difference when it comes to picking faces out of a crowd and being memorable - people tend to remember the names of people who are smiling than they remember the names of people with neutral or angry expressions. But what if you don't feel comfortable smiling because of your teeth?

If your teeth are discolored, broken, crooked, or missing, you may try and hide your teeth rather than show them off by smiling. Fortunately, there are a variety of ways to correct your smile, such as whitening, braces, veneers, bonding, and many others.

If you are ready to start smiling more, contact our office to find out what can be done to improve your smile.
