I don’t know about you, but I think people look so much better when they smile. Yeah, the pout was fun for a little while. But smiling never goes out of style! If you aren’t confident with your smile and want to make sure you look good each and every time, use the tips in this guide to help you.
Brush, Floss, and Rinse
It isn’t enough to simply brush your teeth, flossing and rinsing is essential too. Flossing will help to get rid of bacteria that lurks in between the teeth, even that which you can’t see. Mouthwash gets rid of any remaining bacteria and freshens the breath. When brushing, I always use an electric toothbrush with a good head to get the best result. You can really tell the difference!
Whiten Your Teeth
If you’re self conscious about the colour of your teeth, no need to panic. Whitening them is easier than ever these days with home kits and whitening strips. Do be careful if you have sensitive teeth though, as some can really set off sensitivity. Do your research before buying anything.
Watch What You Eat
Certain foods and drinks can discolour the teeth, leaving you with a duller smile than you’d like. Be careful when it comes to coffee, red wine, and juice consumption. They can all discolour the teeth.
Kick Bad Habits
Smoking won’t do your smile any favours, so make sure you quit as soon as possible. If you continue to smoke, your teeth will get darker and darker – they may even begin to decay because of this habit.
Visit the Dentist Regularly
You need to make sure you go to the dentist regularly. The dentist will spot any problems before you do, which can stop you from needing any serious work in your mouth. You may also want to chat to the dentist about any issues you have with your smile, as many problems can be corrected. A place like Harrell Dental Implant Center could give you a consultation and tell you what you can have done.
Practice in the Mirror
Some people smile with teeth, some prefer to smile with their mouths closed. Some like a wide smile, others prefer to have more of a half smile. Make sure you practice in the mirror so you know how you look when posing for a photograph. This way, you’ll learn which angle to stand at and how you should smile to look your best.
Keep Your Tongue Behind Your Teeth
This is a great trick that really works: keep your tongue behind your teeth when you smile showing your teeth. This stops you from revealing too much gum as you smile. A gummy smile isn’t always attractive, so if it’s something you’re conscious about, try it and see what you think.
