In one study, researchers found that 25 percent of participants hesitate to smile in pictures due to the appearance of their teeth. 28 percent of people in the study don’t smile when they’re featured in social media due to their smile. Lastly, over 80 percent of study participants believe that their teeth are ugly. That’s a lot of people who are unsatisfied with their smile!
Bryant H. McGill said that “The greatest self is a peaceful smile that always sees the world smiling back.” But if a person doesn’t smile, then they will not experience all that the world’s positivity has to offer.
When a person hides their smile, they are hiding their true selves. It takes a lot of effort to constantly position your mouth so that your teeth are hidden from view. Add to that the shame that comes from a subpar smile and you have an unhappy person.
