Alright, we all have our own little battles with self-confidence but according to a new study, smiling with our teeth is one of our biggest worries!

New research from the SmileDirectClub reveals that the overall confidence of Australians has officially dipped, with one in four people feeling self-conscious about their teeth.

Specifically, the results showed that South Australians 8% avoid smiling, 24% smile with their mouth closed, 23% have considered teeth whitening and 5% avoid kissing!

Dr Tim Sharp, also known as Dr Happy, explains that not only is smiling good for your mental health but it is good for others as well. 

“Smiling instantly makes you happy and is infectious ensuring others around you are happy and positive. Studies show that smiling releases endorphins and serotonin which instantly improves your mood,” he said.

Honestly, smile more, think less people! Confidence is not the only key.

Just fake it till ya make it!
