Smiles can brighten even the darkest days. When you see the smiling face of a loved one, or an unexpected, beautiful flash of teeth from a stranger, it warms your heart and makes you smile back. At Lake Forest Dental Arts, our job is to make your smile more attractive. But the true beauty comes from the sincerity of the person who is smiling.
Today, we want share quotes, some of them wise and some of them witty, about the power of a smile.
Smiling and Beauty
Whenever you smile, it brightens your face and makes you look more attractive and put together:
You’re never fully dressed without a smile. -Martin Charnin
A smile disarms anyone near you who has their guard up:
Beauty is power; a smile is its sword. -Charles Reade
Smiling and Youthfulness
Smiling also has anti-aging properties. The muscles you use to smile have a face-lift affect:
No matter how grouchy you’re feeling,
You’ll find the smile more or less healing.
It grows in a wreath
All around the front teeth–
Thus preserving the face from congealing.
Wear a smile and have friends; wear a scowl and have wrinkles. -George Eliot
Smiling as an Act of Goodwill
You can also look more approachable when you smile, which can open doors to friendship or more:
A smile is the universal welcome. -Max Eastman
Peace begins with a smile. -Mother Teresa
