Smile is always good, there are many health benefits of smile. How many muscles of the face are exercised, I don't know exact number.
There isn't a definitive number. Facial expressions vary in the number of muscles that are used.
I believe the back of a matchox would say, "13 muscles to smile and 54 to frown; so why bother"? Or something like that? .... Cheers!
