Which Smile Do You Show?

You’ve heard it time and time again: Your smile is the first thing other people notice about you. You have one set of teeth, one set of lips, and one tongue, so this means you have one smile, right?

Wrong. You actually have at least six smiles, and your smile- or smiles- say a lot about you.

Confused? A study done at the University of California at Berkeley found that the average human has at least six different versions of his or her smile that he or she shows depending on mood, situation, and level of comfort. These six smiles include the genuine smile, the flirty and coy smile, the amused smile, the in-love smile, the interested smile, and the embarrassed smile.

It’s likely that you have even more versions of your smile that extend past the descriptions above, and when you wear each of them, it’s the first thing others notice about you.

Whether you have the basic six smiles or eighty-six, one thing holds true: You won’t show a smile if you’re not happy with the condition of your teeth. Your smile- whichever one your choose to display- conveys how you take care of yourself and how you want to be perceived by others.

Don’t let cracks, chips, missing teeth, and stains keep you from showing your true emotions!
