Importance of Smiling & Do White Teeth Matter?

September 13, 2011 Katja Presnal

I have one big complex and fault that keeps me from living life to the fullest.
Well, who am I kidding here, I have many complexes.
But one big one is my teeth and the need of hiding them.

I had veneers done long time ago and they have needed to be redone at least six years for now, but the entire rework would cost about $10,000 and we just can’t afford/justify it right now. However, I feel bad every single day when I brush my teeth, look at myself in the mirror, or even worse: when I meet people and I have to smile, especially for the camera. This even keeps me from working and doing my weekly videos for LifetimeMoms.com.

Usually I don’t smile and I am trying to keep my teeth hidden. It’s not because I don’t want to smile, but because my teeth look bad and I feel like people are going to judge me because of my bad teeth.

Importance of Smiling

Smile right now and you will realize that it makes you instantly feel happier. How can you be grumpy if you are smiling?

Your mood will be better and your outlook on the day will be different when you smile more. Think what a difference it makes when you smile to other people. They smile back, and your smile might have just made their day and make them feel better. Smile opens many doors, and smile unites you with other people.

I know that when I am trying to keep myself from not smiling, I am actually turning people away from me. Some people might even think I’m arrogant, rude, not a good or happy person because I don’t smile enough. They might even see the worry in my eyes when I’m trying not to smile when I’m hiding my teeth – and take it personally!

Importance of White Teeth

It’s ultimately my teeth that keep me from smiling. My teeth are dark, the veneers look bad and I’d love to shine that ten thousand dollar smile every single day. In fact, I think it would be life changing to have my teeth fixed and it would even impact directly in my career and blogging business. Yes, teeth. That’s how important I think beautiful white smile and white teeth are.

Jessica Alba (pictured above) was voted to have one of the best celebrity smiles, and could it even be that her white beautiful teeth are part of the reason for her soaring success? In a recent episode of The Bachelor Pad (yes, I was totally hooked the entire summer!), a couple is asked what they think the girl’s ex-boyfriends missed the most about her. The new boyfriend answered: her beautiful white teeth (she said her boobs!). White teeth are the key to beautiful stunning smile, there is no question about it.
