Want to Live a Longer, Happier Life? Smile more! [TEDx]

If you’re looking for a way to improve your health, your social relationships and your overall well-being, smiling is your best bet!

The simple act of smiling comes with a lot of benefits. According to a recent TED Talk given by Health Tap founder and CEO Ron Gutman, several studies support the theory that smiling improves your health and longevity. One study found that the width of a smile can be used to predict longevity – in other words, the wider your smile, the more likely you are to live longer. If you’re not happy with your smile and don’t smile often or at all, contact Sumas Mountain Dental in Abbotsford to book an appointment and improve your life, one smile at a time!

Studies also found that smiling is contagious – which is a good thing, because a single smile can make you feel as good as winning $2500 dollars or eating around 2000 bars of chocolate! Children tend to smile a lot more often that adults do, so if your goal is to live a longer, happier life, get in touch with your inner child and smile.

But if your current smile doesn’t really want to make you…well, smile, come in to Sumas Mountain Dental for a custom smile makeover that’s sure to leave you grinning ear to ear. Smiling can lower stress levels and increase your attractiveness, so don’t miss out on the benefits of a smile and contact Sumas Mountain Dental today!
