To Smile or Not to Smile that is the Question

“Is a smile a question? Or is it the answer?”

straight smile

Beach Braces Smile Quote #15 “Is a smile a question? Or is it the answer?”

Smiling is most definitely an answer. Sometimes when asking a question a smile is all that it takes. Think of all the times in the past couple days that you smiled.

In these instances when you smiled were you content with what you had discovered?  Is this what caused your boost in joy? Or was it because someone made you laugh and you were joyed with the feeling that it gave to you.

We respond to situations with our emotions, be it happy or sad. When we smile its because we are feeling something and we are sure that what is being felt is making us happy or we appreciate the nature of it.

Smiling is the answer for many things, but we need to start using it more often. In a place where there is no smiling, people will become hard and calloused in their hearts. It should be our goal to go to these places and share our joy with them.

Since laughter and smiles are contagious, we should desire to bring that to people who are without happiness. Of course there is a place and a time for everything, but if you feel that you could brighten someone’s day with a smile, by all means smile away!

You might be the only person that day who has tried to boost their spirits and in the end you could have made them very happy. The question shouldn’t be if we should share our smiles with one another. The question should be how.

How can we spread positivity with a smile to others?  Start by just smiling at people. Chances are they will return the favor with a smile.  When you are comfortable with telling jokes, share them with some friends and see their faces change from a blank stare to completely happiness. Whatever you do, be happy and share that smile with everyone!

Unfortunately many people cover their smile with their hand, as they don’t feel comfortable with their smile and don’t wish to wear braces. A good alternative are clear braces, named Invisalign, adults especially feel most at ease using these clear braces.

Be a Joy

 “Sometimes your joy is the source of your smile, but sometimes your smile can be the source of your joy.”

Braces  

Beach Braces Smile Quote #14 “Sometimes your joy is the source of your smile, but sometimes your smile can be the source of your joy.”

When you are really happy what is the common thing that seems to happen?  Do you lock yourself away in a dark room and tell everyone to go away?  No!  You smile, are happy, and are beaming with brightness and positivity.  When we approach each day with this type of outlook we are able to become more positive and share that energy with others, making for a happier environment.

Has someone ever smiled at you in passing without saying anything to you?  What was your immediate response?  Did you shun them and look away, or did you return the gesture and smile back?  Most times our initial reaction is to return the smile.  That little kind gift that the other person gave you might have just made your day.  Think about how you could do the same for so many others.

Beach Braces strives to be able to help you get the smile that you have always wanted.  No matter your age, there are treatments available to help you.  The best time for a screening begins at the age of 7.

This is because your molars should be coming in which will then identify how your teeth are lining up together in the back of your mouth.  If the orthodontist can see that the teeth do not align properly there may be a chance of crowding, over or under bite, or smiles that appear with too much gum.

The sooner you get screened the easier and quicker it will be to bring you the best smile you can have.  Call for an evaluation to see if getting orthodontic treatment is right for you.  This is nothing to be afraid of, all you have to lose is the negativity about your current smile, and gain the happiness of a beautiful smile that you can share with the world.

Smile that Stress Away

 “Life is like a mirror, we get the best results when we smile at it”

perfect smile

Beach Braces Smile Quote #12 “Life is like a mirror, we get the best results when we smile at it”

Have you ever looked in the mirror when you were smiling?  If you haven’t recently go over to the mirror and start smiling at yourself.  Notice how happy you look?  Now, most of the time after I do this I end up making myself chuckle and then realize how silly I am being.

In that moment I am filled with happiness and all the stress that I have been dealing with has gone away.  A smile is something magical that can turn our worries away.  Why do we not smile more often?  It has also been said that laughter is the best medicine.

There are whole groups of people that meet together on a regular basis and have laughing times with each other.  They sit in a circle and use all of their energy to laugh.  When you laugh  you always feel good, right?  So why not share this happiness with others?  Some think that their smile isn’t good enough to share with the world.  They think that because they have a couple extra teeth or because their teeth are crooked they don’t need to smile anymore.

With the discovery of orthodontics over 100 years ago, we have the technology to straighten teeth for a more comfortable smile that you can call your own and share with the world.  Beach Braces wants to bring you to the point where you can be happy with your smile.  In a short amount of time you can have the smile that you have always wanted.

Can you Measure a Smile ?

 

 “All the Statistics in The World Can’t measure the Warmth of a Smile”

Beach Braces

Beach Braces Smile Quote #8 “All the Statistics in The World Can’t measure the Warmth of a Smile”

Have you ever thought of measuring a smile? Most scientists invest in various studies regarding smiles, how much people mean it, and how different smiles can be distinguished. Advanced studies even have patterns to determine if your smile is fake or real. These studies based their results on facial muscles they identified to be responsible when a person is smiling.

However, no matter how much studies were conducted, how many factors were considered, and how much results are shown, the question of measuring a smile is still a debatable topic.

So, can you really measure smile? How much joy does it give to other people? In what angle or amount of mouth opening is to be considered as the best smile? How much pain can certain smiles eliminate? How long must someone smile in order to lessen negative feelings? All these questions together with some thousand questions about smiles are yet to be answered and remain a mystery to be unfolded.

With the kind of technology that we have today, indeed experts can measure certain factors of smiles but no one can still decipher smile itself.

No matter how many studies are being conducted, in the end, it doesn’t really matter anyways as all the statistics in the world can’t measure the warmth of a smile. After all, not everything in this world can be measured and that includes smile.

 “Smile Sunshine is Good For Your Teeth”

Beach Braces Smile Quote #7 “Smile Sunshine is Good For Your Teeth”

Don’t let teeth irregularities blur your smile!

Malocclusions are inherited orthodontic problems that can contribute to tooth decay, gum disease and tooth loss. Additionally, crooked or crowded teeth are hard to clean.

The psychological effects can be devastating in severe cases of malocclusions. Teeth irregularities can affect self esteem and confidence, especially in teenagers.

The best way to prevent all these problems is to consult an orthodontist. Orthodontics is a type of dentistry that seeks to improve the position, appearance and function of abnormally aligned teeth.

Are you curious how do braces feel? The teeth may become sore and may be tender to biting pressures for a couple of days, but after you have become accustomed with the plate, you will forget you are wearing the brace.

You don’t want people to notice your braces? You can always opt for brackets that bond behind the teeth, or for invisible plates that are easy to remove and install.

All you have to do now is to find a good orthodontics office.

Alpine and Rafetto is one of the most respected orthodontic providers in Delaware. Dr. Ray S. Rafetto and Dr. Mark R. Fiss, the founders of Alpine and Rafetto, are using SureSmile, a technology that enhances patient comfort, reduces the trips to the office and shortens the treatment period. SureSmile utilizes wires that memorize the shape of your teeth. This technology creates a better smile in less time than metal braces.   Request an exam now!

Wear a SureSmile brace and grin happily ever after!

Positive Hitchhiking

“If I saw you hitchhiking, I’d smile and return your thumb’s up, just for you doing such a great job of being a positive roadside influence ”

beach braces

Beach Braces Smile Quote  #5

While we would never advocate that you hitchhike in this day and age, or even replicate the thumbs up and smile to a tired hitchhiker loosing the will to live by the roadside (especially if there is a stop sign or traffic lights ahead) we thought Jarod Kintz’s quote was quite unique.

Jarod Kintz is a self professed writer of randomness, after being rejected from two leading universities creative writing programs, he has embarked on fulfilling his career as a full time author. Some of his latest publications have included; Emails from a Madman, I want and It Occurred to me.

If the above quote didn’t make you smile we at least hope it made you laugh, I only wish we had the hitchhikers reply, although it would probably be too crude to publish 🙂

Have a great Monday California!

A Smile is an Inexpensive Way to Change Your Looks

invisalign smiles

Beach Braces Smile Quote  #3

It’s often said when you smile everyone smiles with you, this is so true. It’s amazing what a difference a smile can make when you walk into a room full of new people, or when you’re simply passing someone in the street. Smiling automatically puts everyone at ease and often leads to further social interaction.

Let’s face it being smiled at makes you feel good, so next time when you see someone feeling a bit flat, and give them a big smile! It’s free and effortless.

Did you ever stop to think smiling is one of the few universal signs that everyone can understand and appreciate. If you thought it was a nod or shake of the head, think again! In Bulgaria and India theses actions have a completely different meaning.

Who smiles the most ?

Thailand dubbed “Smileland” by many probably do it the best and for good reason, numerous research projects have proven that smiling actually reduces stress and boosts the immune system.

Smiles can vary we have the classic “obligatory smile” well he/she smiled at me I better smile back, then we have the “false smile” hmmm never goes down well and there easily detected. Finally we have the “genuine smile” which is a complete crowd pleaser.

So why don’t people smile more? Sadly a large percentage of people don’t feel comfortable with either the colour of alignment of their teeth. Don’t live life not smiling Dr. Panucci at Beach Braces based in Manhattan Beach offers a wide range of treatments for both children and adults. If you are concerned that you may be a bit mature for the “braces look” you can read here about Invisalign here.

Keep smiling people!!

Mom and Dad Can Have Perfect Teeth Too

Beach Braces Office

If you have been considering adult orthodontic braces so that you can have the straight teeth you always wanted, then read on. There are plenty of options available for adults to have braces, depending on your lifestyle, person preferences, and individual requirements. You will need to choose the style of braces that is best for you. But what are adult orthodontic braces, and how do you find the best option for you?

Conventional Metal Braces

Metal braces are the most common type of braces. This brace type is made from the highest grade of steel and they are affixed to the outside of your teeth. A few benefits to this type of braces are: durability, lack of discoloration, and speed of treatment.  Modern day metal braces are much smaller, more comfortable, and more attractive than those of even a decade ago.

Clear Ceramic Braces

The clear ceramic braces are attached to your teeth in the same manner as metal braces. However, because they tooth colored, they are less noticeable than the metal versions.

Lingual Bracesadult braces

Lingual braces are attached behind your teeth (the lingual side of the teeth). Lingual braces are completely hidden behind the teeth. Lingual braces have an adjustment period just like any other type of braces.

Invisible Braces (Clear Aligners)

Invisible braces are popular with adults and teens. Invisalign is comprised of a set of clear orthodontic trays that are called aligners. These aligners are customized to your mouth to accomplish the alignment that needs to take place for smile improvement. They are much less visible than braces. Teeth cleaning is easier because the aligners can be removed. However, this type of brace can only be used with simple teeth corrections. They are not designed to handle more complex cases but it’s not unknown to get a six month smile with Invisalign.

Which is the Best kind?

It really comes down to persona choice. There are pros and cons to each type of braces, and choosing is very personal. Consider your priorities, budget, whether you wish to conceal your braces, and of course you should always take your orthodontists’s recommendations into consideration. One thing is for certain – you are never too old to have braces and have your teeth corrected. Talk to your orthodontist to get a better understanding of what your personal situation would entail.
