It’s proven that women tend to smile more than men. In fact, some studies show that women smile up to 8 times more than men daily.

While this number is more equal among men and women in similar careers, a Business Media Networks study shows that female smiles greatly outnumber male smiles on social networking websites.

The question must be asked: Why are men so hesitant to flash a big grin?

Factors such as culture and age are partially responsible, but the real reason runs much deeper. Men don’t tend to notice when they are being observed throughout the day, while women are constantly aware when eyes are on them.

If you wish the man in your life smiled more, try to figure out what’s holding him back. Maybe he’s stressed or self-conscious about his appearance.

If it’s the latter, cosmetic dentistry may be the way to put a big smile on your guy’s face. The goal of cosmetic dentistry is to give you a beautiful, natural-looking smile and, in turn, boost your confidence.
