Every year on the first Friday of October, the world celebrates World Smile Day. Harvey Ball, inventor of the iconic yellow smiley face, established World Smile Day in 1999. The event has been sponsored since 2001 by the foundation created after his death, the Harvey Ball World Smile Foundation. The foundation’s motto is “improving this world, one smile at a time.” In honor of World Smile Day your Rochester dentist would like to talk about smiles, why they’re good for you, and how you can get the smile you want.
The Importance of a Smile
Studies have shown that having confidence in your smile can improve your quality of life, including how you’re viewed in your personal and professional life. The British Dental Health Foundation conducted a study that shows smiling can actually improve your mood, and the moods of those around you. Smiling not only improves the moods of those around you, but improves how you are perceived by friends and coworkers. To create an undeniably positive environment, and improve you health and mood in the process, all you have to do is smile.
How to Get the Smile You Want
Calcagno Family and Cosmetic Dentistry offers a number of services designed to give you the beautiful smile you have always wanted. If you’ve always wanted straighter teeth, but don’t want to crowd your mouth with metal brackets, consider talking with your Rochester dentist about Invisalign. Maybe your smile just needs a little lift; Dr. Calcagno offers a number of teeth whitening treatments that are far more effective than what is available in stores. For many, veneers or bonding offer the chance at a complete smile makeover.
