There’s a Thousand Reasons to Smile


“When life gives you a hundred reasons to cry, show life you have a thousand reasons to smile.”

There is a story of a teacher addressing his students. He drew a dot on a white piece of paper and asked the entire class, “What do you see?” Several students said, “We see a dot.” The teacher asked, “Considering there is a whole piece of paper here, you only see the dot?” Perplexed by his response, the teacher explained, “There may be one thing going wrong; however, if you only focus on that, then that is all you will see. You didn’t look at all the space around the dot.” There may be a hundred reasons to cry, but there are thousands of reasons to smile.

Change the World


“Use your smile to change this world, but don’t let the world change your smile.”

Some say that the smile is universal in greeting others. When you don’t want to look in a mirror or smile at others because of the way your teeth look, it might be time to see an orthodontist who can use braces to straighten your teeth.

One of the benefits of wearing braces, aside from getting a beautiful smile, is that they aren’t permanent. Most people only have to wear them for two to three years. Braces are ideal for people who have misaligned jaws, causing either the top teeth to rest over the bottom ones or the bottom teeth to sit over the top teeth. These bites can affect the way you talk and eat. They can also put pressure on the jaws, which can lead to headaches and tension in the neck. Braces can help straighten the teeth to create a natural appearance in the mouth so that you can give the warm smile that you want to share. When the teeth are straight, the self-esteem can be greatly improved.
