Every day presents us with a choice. We can choose whether to smile or not to smile. We can choose whether to show the world the brightness of our spirit by offering a big, bright smile, or we an choose to hide the light of our spirit from others.

The great beauty of a smile is that it offers so much to another person, and it really costs us nothing to give. By smiling at another person (whether we are wearing braces or not), we are sharing a great part of ourselves. In a sense, we are offering love, even if that person is a stranger. We are offering a welcome from our spirit to another, without really asking anything in return. When you stop to think of it, a smile is an enormously generous gesture to share with another person.

Why is it Hard to Smile?

Samar AlDhamadi said, “Days may smile and may not. But you can smile anytime, just smile.” Yes, a smile is free to give and it offers multitudes, whether or not the person has seen an orthodontist or not. Straight teeth (achieved by an orthodonist and invisalign and braces) are beautiful, but the essence of a smile is the joy it conveys to another person. So why is it hard for some people to smile?

Some people have a hard time smiling at others because of innate shyness, and yes, this is a hard thing to overcome. However, with a little practice, smiling can come more easily and more naturally. The amazing thing about a smile is that it brightens ups the feelings of the person who receives it, and it also brightens up the person who is smiling. That’s all the more reason why a smile should be shared on a regular basis.

The essence of the joy a smile brings is that it offers the world a new perspective. Smiling means we are making a choice to enjoy life in all its simple pleasures, and by sharing that smile we are sending the message that life is meant to be enjoyed and savored.

A clean bright smile is a beautiful thing, but of course some people do feel self conscious about smiling if they never had the chance to see an orthodontist and wear braces. The good news today is that now with invisalign teeth straighteners, those who missed out on getting a straighter smile in their youth can have it now, with a minimum of hassle.
