This simple test can be done anywhere there’s a mirror. Its purpose, according to Dr. Nadia Lewis, founder of the clinic, is to reveal whether you truly like your smile or not. Patients have said they found the smile test to be enlightening. Many didn’t truly realize that they disliked their smile until they took a good, hard look at it.
The smile test takes less than a minute to do, but the results may give you something to think about. First, a person looks into a wall-mounted mirror (or hand mirror held at face level). Next, he or she smiles. The next part can be somewhat difficult. The person is asked to think about something truly hilarious that made them laugh. If nothing comes to mind, the person can watch a short funny video on his or her phone or something similar. Then he or she looks in the mirror again and examines his or her smile. For many, this “funny smile” or involuntary smile is different than the smile forcibly made earlier. It’s the smile people make when they see or hear something really funny.
It’s also, according to Dr. Lewis, the smile that most people truly dislike because it shows off everything they find wrong with their mouths. A funny smile is usually wider than a posed one, and it shows off more teeth. People hate this because all of their tooth imperfections are revealed. With a posed smile, it’s possible to keep a lot of those embarrassing little problems hidden.
Once the smile test has been taken, Dr. Lewis asks patients to consider why they hate their funny smile. This will help the patient decide what can be done to change this. For some, it’s because their teeth are stained or dark. Their funny smile will return once their teeth have been whitened and they’ve cut back on tooth-staining habits such as drinking coffee. Some notice that their gums are receding or have areas on their gums that are discolored. This may be a sign of gingivitis and will need medication to clear up. Cavities, old fillings, and many other issues can also cause people to hate their funny smiles.
All of these problems and more can be cleared up by visiting a dentist on a regular basis. While some, such as replacing missing teeth, can be costly, others may be fairly inexpensive. Dr. Lewis provides cosmetic dentistry to anyone in the Toronto, Ontario, area. While the smile test will help people decide why they hate smiling, only a dentist can fix these issues. Dr. Lewis asks all those who fail the smile test one follow up question: “Are you ready to stop hiding your smile and start showing off your great, dazzling happy smile again?”
