    laugh vs smile

    It is important to note that teeth will be visible and loud voice will be heard during laugh. On the other hand teeth will not be visible and no loud voice will be heard during smile. Sometimes you tend to hold your sides too during laugh. In other words it can be said that smile is not accompanied by voice for that matter. These are the important differences between the two words, namely ‘smile’ and ‘laugh’.

    Do you agree with the bold sentence?

    Re: laugh vs smile

    The whole thing seems to be written by somebody who is not a native speaker of English.

    Re: laugh vs smile

    I agree with Piscean. It's nonsense.

    You can smile without showing your teeth, but in most cases a smile involves revealing them.

    Click here and you'll see that most of the people smiling have their teeth on view.
